It’s time to deck the halls and put up that tree as you cozy up on the couch with a cup of hot chocolate to settle in and stream some good movies and series. While there’s a selection of feel-good Christmas movies, there’s also a range of neo-noir thrillers, exciting new films and series from the minds of Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy, as well as a tribute series about the late Selena. Check it out!

Feel-Good Festive Cheer
Angela’s Christmas Wish (Dec. 1) is a sweet film that drives home the true meaning of Christmas as a young Irish girl tries to reunite her family in time for Christmas.

The Holiday Movies That Made Us: Season 1. Will Ferrell in ElfIf you’ve seen The Movies That Made Us, you’ll know that this original doc takes you behind the scenes of iconic films. In The Holiday Movies That Made Us (Dec. 1), we get to unwrap the stories behind iconic Christmas blockbusters, with exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes peeks.

Just Another Christmas (Dec. 3), also known as Tudo Bem No Natal Que Vem, follows a man named Jorge, who wakes up each year on Christmas Eve to find himself reliving the same day over and over.

The PromThe Prom (Dec. 11) is the latest from creator / showrunner Ryan Murphy. When high school student Emma Nolan (Jo Ellen Pellman) is banned from attending the prom with her girlfriend, Alyssa (Ariana DeBose), four Broadway stars (Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, Andrew Rannells) rally to give Emma a night where she can truly celebrate who she is.

If you’ve seen the film Selena, you’re likely to become invested in Selena: The Series (Dec. 4), a coming-of-age story following Selena as she starts to realize her potential. However, her family makes tough choices during her journey to success, love and music.

An Indian Netflix original series, Bhaag Beanie Bhaag (Dec. 4) follows a young woman named Beanie (Swara Bhaskar) who decides to leave her cushy, comfortable life behind and pursue a career in stand-up comedy, despite her parents’ disapproval.

Mank (Dec. 4) walks us through 1930s Hollywood from the perspective of alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz as he races to finish Citizen Kane. Starring Gary Oldman and Amanda Seyfried. We can’t wait to watch this one!

Adapted from August Wilson’s play, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (Dec. 18) follows the trailblazing Mother of the Blues (Viola Davis) and her band, including her ambitious horn player Levee (Chadwick Boseman) as they gather at a Chicago recording studio in 1927.

Felicity Jones and David Oyelowo in The Midnight SkyDirected by George Clooney, The Midnight Sky (Dec. 23) follows Augustine (George Clooney), a lonely scientist in the Arctic, as he races to stop Sully (Felicity Jones) and her fellow astronauts from returning home to a mysterious global catastrophe.

From the minds of Shonda Rhimes and creator Chris Van Dusen, Bridgerton (Dec. 25) follows Daphne Bridgerton, the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family as she makes her debut onto Regency London’s competitive marriage market.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina returns for a fourth and final showdown on December 31. The Eldritch Terrors will descend upon Greendale. The coven must fight each terrifying threat, all leading up to The Void. Also, Nick begins to slowly earn his way back into Sabrina’s heart, but will it be too late?

Fan Faves
A number of classic films are coming to Netflix this month. Tom Hanks brings the mystery in The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, both streaming December 1.

You can catch Julia Roberts in Runaway Bride (Dec. 1). She who plays a young woman who has often changed her mind about marriage at the altar and attracts the attention of a reporter (Richard Gere).

The thriller Ava (Dec. 7) follows the titular character (Jessica Chastain), a deadly assassin who works for a black ops organization until the job goes horribly wrong and she then has to save her family and herself from multiple threats.

And finally, one classic we all love to watch time and again is E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (Dec. 1).
