Since starting to make original content in 2013, Netflix has become well-known for its wide variety of TV shows, movies, and specials. Ranging from "Cheer" to "Pandemic: How to Prevent an Outbreak," those who subscribe to the streaming service have been able to explore a variety of entertaining options over the years. Now, one movie in particular, "365 DNI," which translates to "365 Days," is creating a bit of controversy and dividing Netflix users due to its intense subject matter.

The Polish movie follows "a fiery executive (Anna Maria Sieklucka) in a spiritless relationship" who "falls victim to a dominant mafia boss (Michele Morron)." Eventually, he "imprisons her and gives her one year to fall in love with him." Since its debut in the U.S., it has reportedly moved up on the list of trending movies and, at press time, is sitting at number 6.

According to Observer, the movie, which is based on a book by the same name by Blanka Lipińska, struck a nerve due to the fact that some believe it glamorized Stockholm syndrome. As noted by Encyclopedia Britannica, the concept has been defined by professionals as the "psychological response wherein a captive begins to identify closely with his or her captors, as well as with their agenda and demands."

Subsequently, a range of Netflix subscribers took to Twitter to express their concerns about what message could be conveyed throughout "365 DNI," as seen in the tweet below.

However, some viewed the film in a different light and said that it was a better version of 2015's "50 Shades of Grey."

Regardless of the controversy that has followed the thriller, its initial debut in Poland on Feb. 7 reportedly grossed $9.4 million overall, which was followed by the intense interest overseas.

As for whether or not fans will eventually get to see a sequel is unknown; it has not yet been officially announced whether there will be a follow-up. However, Decider states a second book in the series, "Ten dzień," was released in 2018, which may indicate what the future could hold for the movies.

"365 DNI" is currently streaming on Netflix.
