What’s New on Netflix Canada – April 2018

The Florida ProjectSpring is here! April showers bring a flurry of digestible flicks that you can watch on a Friday night with friends or on a weekday evening when you’re simply allergic to people. Been there, done that. Here’s your monthly Netflix guide of the highlights to watch!

Netflix Originals
Lost in Space (April 13) is a modern re-imagining of the classic 1960s science fiction series. Set 30 years in the future, where colonization in space is now a reality, we are introduced to the Robinsons, who are selected to make their home on a new planet.

A period drama that’s getting a lot of buzz is The Alienist (April 19). Season 1 will satisfy your appetite for a haunting psychological thriller. Set in 1896 New York, criminal psychologist Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Daniel Brühl) joins crime reporter John Moore (Luke Evans), police clerk Sara Howard (Dakota Fanning) and forensics experts to catch a serial killer who is hunting down and murdering boy prostitutes.

If you’d prefer a comedy, the new series The Letdown (April 21) follows the adventures of a new mom in a new-parents support group. It’s a quirky depiction of motherhood.

When a woman (Abbi Jacobson) learns that her brother (Dave Franco) has relapsed on heroin, she drives him across Los Angeles in search of a detox center in the drama film 6 Balloons (April 6).

Four BFFs live the last two weeks of high school contemplating major life changes in the coming-of-age comedy film titled Dude (April 20). Ah, the dramatic high school days. Who doesn’t miss those?!

Our Picks
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may not be an It couple any more, but those who miss their on-screen chemistry can enjoy their romantic drama By the Sea (April 1), directed by Angie herself.

An indie favorite is The Florida Project (April 6), which follows the adventures of six-year-old Moonee. With critics loving this movie, this one’s worth a watch.

Fans of Prison Break can binge on season 5 (April 4), which picks up seven years after Michael is presumed dead. This season reveals he is very much alive and a family reunion is to be expected.

Comedy Central
If you watched Jumanji in theaters recently and are looking for more laughs and heart (or Hart —  see what I did there?), Ride Along 2 will be available for streaming on April 1. Starring Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, this film promises double the dose of humor and action as the soon-to-be brothers-in-law head to Miami.

Another comedy to watch is The Best Man Holiday (April 1), which follows a group of college friends who reunite after 15 years. You’ll find drama, romance and a few tears in this one.

Horror fanatics can rejoice as The Conjuring 2 (April 30) hits Netflix. Renowned demonologists Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) return to rid a demon from an 11-year-old girl in this film. Of course, it’s filled with jump scares, and watch out for the nun (who is getting her own spinoff movie soon).

A rather odd, but interesting film to watch if you love thrillers is The Killing of a Sacred Deer (April 5). It follows Dr. Steven Murphy (Colin Farrell), who takes Martin (Barry Keoghan) under his wing since the teen lost his father in an accident. Once Dr. Murphy introduces him to his family, Martin’s unsettling behavior becomes frightening.

The Romantics
You can watch Darcy (Matthew Macfadyen) and Elizabeth (Keira Knightley) fall in love in the Jane Austen-inspired classic movie Pride & Prejudice (April 1), or bring out the tissues to watch young love in Kiss & Cry (April 1).
