If you're among the many, many lucky people (myself included!) who has gone to the Eras tour, you're likely feeling a little bit of Taylor Swift-based withdrawal. If you're someone who's waiting to go, you're likely trying to get your Taylor on in preparation for the big day.

While listening to playlists and curating your ideal Eras outfit on Pinterest is all well and good, you might be looking for something a little more personal. Enter "Miss Americana", Taylor Swift's 2020 documentary.

What is "Miss Americana"?

"Miss Americana" follows Swift across several years of her life and career, between the "Reputation" stadium tour (2018) and "Lover" (2019), as well as flashing back to her less recent past. It's an emotionally vulnerable film, where you see Taylor Swift reconcile with the fact that she's not only an entertainer, but an influential figure and cultural icon.

How can I watch "Miss Americana"?

"Miss Americana" is available on Netflix, however it is not available in every territory. If you're in one of the places it's available, then watching is simple – just log in to your account (or sign up for one) and get ready to stream.

If not, don't worry, you can still watch it with the use of a VPN. A VPN, or virtual private network, is a handy piece of software that encrypts your internet connection. You can also use a VPN to virtually appear as though you are browsing the web from a different location. This is known as spoofing. Check out our guide to spoofing your location to learn how to do this.

By spoofing your location to somewhere which has "Miss Americana" in its catalogue, you will be able to access that location's Netflix library and watch it.
