What is Elling about?

When his mother, who has sheltered him his entire 40 years, dies, Elling, a sensitive, would-be poet, is sent to live in a state institution. There he meets Kjell Bjarne, a gentle giant and female-obsessed virgin in his 40s. After two years, the men are released and provided with a state-funded apartment and stipend with the hope they will be able to live on their own. Initially, the simple act of going around the corner for groceries is a challenge. Through a friendship born of desperate dependence, the skittish Elling and the boisterous, would-be lover of women, Kjell Bjarne, discover they can not only survive on the outside, they can thrive. But as their courage grows, the two find oddball ways to cope with society, striking up the most peculiar friendships in the most unlikely places.

Streaming on Netflix

Netflix is one of the true originals when it comes to online streaming. They have a huge catalogue of TV Shows, Movies, Kids TV and Documentaries that include both classic and original content.

Got a question about Netflix?

Netflix doesn’t reveal the size of its ever-changing library, but it’s estimated to have around 6,000 titles available to stream. It’s one of the most popular streaming providers in the UK thanks to series such as Sex Education, The Crown and Bridgerton.
If you’re a Sky, BT or Virgin customer, you can easily add Netflix to your existing monthly bill. Like standard Netflix customers, you’re free to cancel the service whenever you want.
It could be argued that Netflix has a little more for the whole family. Kids TV and movie selections, in particular, are very strong compared to Amazon. However, Netflix does not have live sports like its American counterpart.
