What's New on Netflix Canada - January 2021

As we head into 2021 with hope for a better year, we can always count on Netflix to keep us entertained with hours of refreshing and engaging original content and fan favorites. From TIFF picks like Pieces of a Woman and Penguin Bloom, to hilarious comedies like Blended and Trainwreck, you’ll have your streaming fix for January.

One of my favorite films at TIFF 2020 was Pieces of a Woman (Jan. 7), starring Vanessa Kirby and Shia LaBeouf. Martha (Kirby) and Shawn (LaBeouf) are eagerly expecting their first baby. They have planned a home birth and are prepared to bring their first born child into the world. However, complications arise when the midwife can’t find the baby’s pulse, sending the couple spiraling after they lose their child. Click here to read a spoiler-free mini review.

Another film that premiered at TIFF 2020 was Penguin Bloom (Jan. 27), which tells the true story of Sam Bloom (Naomi Watts), a young mother whose world is turned upside down after a near-fatal accident leaves her unable to walk.

Based on the bestselling novel, The White Tiger (Jan. 22) follows an ambitious driver who works for a rich Indian couple (Rajkummar Rao, Priyanka Chopra), who have just returned from America. He uses his wit to escape from poverty and become an entrepreneur.

The Dig (Jan. 29) follows a wealthy widow (Carey Mulligan) who hires an amateur archeologist (Ralph Fiennes) to excavate burial mounds on her estate and they uncover history-changing treasure.

In Charming (Jan. 8), an adored prince (voice of Wilmer Valderrama) must find his one, true soulmate before a spell takes away all love from his kingdom.

Amy Schumer and Bill Hader bring all the laughs in Trainwreck (Jan. 6). Directed by Judd Apatow, the movie follows Amy (Schumer), who is told by her father when she is very young that monogamy isn’t realistic. When she grows up, she sets out to prove him right, refusing to believe a man could ever have romantic feelings for her… until she meets a successful sports doctor (Hader) who winds up falling for her, much to her disbelief.

Blended follows single parents Lauren (Drew Barrymore) and Jim (Adam Sandler) who go on a blind date which ends up a disaster. But they soon bump into each other at the same luxurious African safari resort and have to share a suite.

Fan Faves
First Man follows the story of astronaut Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) and the legendary space mission that led him to become the first man to walk on the moon on July 20, 1969.

Fans of the Terminator franchise will be treated to a double feature this month: Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator Salvation  (both Jan. 1).

Happy New Year! ~Marriska Fernandes
