Now Streaming: Son of Batman, Short Term 12, and More

You won't find a whole lot of recognizable new titles this week on streaming video, with the exception of the season premiere of a hit TV series (Orphan Black), one of last year's most critically acclaimed indies (Short Term 12), and a big blockbuster sequel (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), the latter two of which are both new on Netflix. But we do have some interesting choices, including an Israeli revenge thriller and a documentary on Bettie Page. Also, the first episode of Orphan Black's second season is available to watch as well. Read on for details:
