Do you turn on Netflix every night, but you don’t know what to watch? I know that I do.
So, to help you out, I have taken the liberty of composing a list of 5 Movies On Netflix That You Should Watch.
The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, directed by Taika Waititi, is a humorous and heartfelt movie from New Zealand. The premise focuses on a troubled child, Ricky, who goes on the run with his foster dad shortly after his foster mum’s death; Resulting in a national goose chase for the pair.
Honestly, this film will have you rolling with laughter as well as touching your heart. The gorgeous images of New Zealand’s wilderness don’t hurt the movie either.
People Places Things is a romantic comedy of a different sort. Instead of focusing the build up of a relationship, it focuses on the aftermath of a relationship’s breakdown.
The story uses dry humour as it details a cynically charming Will Henry as he maneuvers his way through a single fatherhood while mending a broken heart.
In my opinion, Meet The Robinsons is Disney’s most underrated film; throughout the movie, the theme reminds viewers that mistakes are part of life. However, instead of giving up, we have to “keep moving forward.”
I, myself have watched Meet The Robinsons at least a dozen times.
“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths”. – Walt Disney
Philomena is a heartbreakingly real story about Philomena Lee; Who, as a teenager, had her infant son stolen from her by the Catholic Church.
I loved Philomena. Nevertheless, as a birthmother, the plot hit me hard. By the end credits, I felt emotionally shellshocked by what I had just seen.
If you are planning to watch Philomena (and you should), be sure to have Kleenex on hand.
Side note: You can read about the real Philomena Lee here.
The Sapphires is an Australian movie about a soul music group made up of four aboriginal women. The plot is upbeat and inspiring; featuring an amazing soundtrack to boot.
However, despite the optimism, you can catch glimpses of some of the racism that the aboriginals face (and have faced) in Australia.
Have you watched any of these movies? Will you be adding any of these titles to your Netflix queue? Let me know in the comments and be sure to follow my blog for more posts like this in the future.
