I suggest you ...

Consider the year, if supplied in a search phrase

So movies with generic titles will produce many search results. For example, searching for 'One Day' produces eight matching movies with the same title. It would be useful to be able to add the release date and narrow down the search so the movie you want pops up at the top of the list however I've noticed this is not possible yet.

I've noticed this is a source of confusion for new users. I have seen people copy and paste into letterboxd using the following common format, "One Day (2011)", which counterintuitively produces no movie results just various lists and unrelated stuff. To them it looks like Letterboxd does not have the film.

I know there are issues with release dates in different countries however I think any implementation of this would be helpful. A workaround for this could be to simply show the closest matching date to whatever the user enters in the search bar.
