It’s almost time for hot cocoa, apple cider and well, Christmas carols. Yes, we are talking about holiday movies and cozy holiday romance movies. The countdown has officially begun.
Netflix has a collection of original holiday movies in addition to new original action flicks, dramas and thrillers. Check out what’s on the streaming service this November.
The highly anticipated film by Martin Scorsese is here! The Irishman starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci is an epic saga of organized crime in America told through the eyes of WWII veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history.
Based on the acclaimed Broadway play, American Son tells the story of Kendra Ellis-Connor (Kerry Washington), the mother of a missing teenage boy, who struggles to put the pieces together in a South Florida police station.
It’s time for some high-speed car chases! An Indian film titled Drive follows a notorious thief who joins forces with a street racer for a grand heist — involving an elaborate game of deceit with the authorities — who have their own dirty secrets.
The highly buzzed-about film The King will also be premiering in November. The film follows Hal (Timothée Chalamet) — a wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne — who has turned his back on royal life and is living among the people. When his tyrannical father dies, Hal is crowned King Henry V and is forced to embrace the life he’d tried to escape.
Spend time with the Fab Five in Queer Eye: We’re in Japan! The Fab Five — Antoni Porowski (Food & Wine), Bobby Berk (Interior Design), Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming), Karamo Brown (Culture), and Tan France (Fashion) — bring their expertise to Tokyo and work their magic on four heroes while experiencing Japanese cuisine, fashion, design, grooming and culture firsthand.
Cue the Christmas carols! The holiday films are roll… err, snowing in. First up is the original film Holiday in the Wild. When Kate Conrad’s (Kristin Davis) marriage comes to an end, she flies to Africa for a solo safari. During a detour through Zambia, she helps her pilot, Derek Holliston (Rob Lowe), rescue an orphaned baby elephant. She extends her stay through Christmastime and might just find more than one reason to stay.
Another Christmas feel-good film for young adults is Let It Snow. When a snowstorm hits a small mid-western town on Christmas Eve, a group of high school seniors find their friendships and love lives colliding thanks to a stranded pop star, a stolen keg, a squad of competitive dancers, a mysterious woman covered in tin foil, and an epic party at the local Waffle Town. Come Christmas morning, nothing will be the same.
Another holiday romance is coming your way with The Knight Before Christmas! After a magical sorceress transports medieval knight Sir Cole (Josh Whitehouse) to present-day Ohio during the holiday season, he befriends Brooke (Vanessa Hudgens), a kind science teacher who’s been disillusioned by love. While Brooke tries to help Sir Cole return home, they begin to fall for each other.
In Holiday Rush, a loving father reconnects with his children and opens his heart to love when they all learn that true joy comes from not what you have — but who you have around you.
In Merry Happy Whatever, a strong-willed dad (Dennis Quaid) navigates the stress of the holiday season when his daughter brings her new boyfriend home for Christmas.
And finally, fans of The Crown will be able to enjoy season 3! Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) has to keep on top of things in the 1960s, when England experiences an economic downturn and people begin seeing the royals as aristocratic freeloaders.
Award Season Favorites
Academy Award-nominated film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri comes to Netflix. When the Ebbing Police Department is unable to solve her daughter Angela’s murder, tough-as-nails Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) decides to make a bold move. She rents three billboards leading into the town and paints controversial messages on them pointing a finger at police chief William Willoughby’s (Woody Harrelson) ineptness.
Oscar-nominated film Zero Dark Thirty, directed by Kathryn Bigelow, is a must-watch. Following the September 11 attacks on the United States, a decade-long hunt began for Osama bin Laden, the head of the Islamist militant group al-Qaeda. The movie follows the efforts of top secret CIA intelligence forces, who rent a home in Abbottabad, Pakistan near the compound where bin Laden is believed to be in hiding. A special force of Navy Seals carry out a raid to bring the terrorist down.
So until the feel-good month of December arrives, here’s what November promises. Happy streaming! ~Marriska Fernandes
