Netflix’s Last Call for Istanbul looks like the ideal movie to break my romantic-drama drought

With just a week until Thanksgiving in the US and not much longer until Christmas, this would be a great time for one of the top streaming services to release a feel-good romcom, especially if it’s made in Turkey so we joke pretending to confuse the bird with the land. So we’re very happy to see Netflix going a step further and delivering exactly what we needed: a Turkish romantic drama set in New York.

The setup is simple enough: Kivanç Tatlitug and Beren Saat are Mehmet and Serin, two married strangers whose paths cross when Serin’s luggage is accidentally picked up by another passenger at JFK International Airport. What starts as a search for lost luggage becomes a story about love, second chances and loyalty during an ‘unforgettable’ night in New York.
