Here’s what’s new to Netflix Streaming in April
More than 30 titles are hitting the website this month; our Film editor recommends his must-sees.
Tue Apr 1 2014
Netflix streaming just released the list of movies and TV shows that will become available during the month of April, and there's plenty there to distract you from April Fool's Day pranks and/or taxes. Fire up the couch; it's time to bank some quality viewing time. Time Out New York Film editor Joshua Rothkopf recommends the following titles:
Chinatown (1974): Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway flirt relentlessly in a 1930s-set neonoir that's the apex of Hollywood's ambition.
A League of Their Own (1992): There's no crying in baseball—but there is Madonna, in an underrated supporting performance.
Mean Girls (2004): Cast your mind back to the time when Lindsay Lohan was, in fact, her generation's most promising young talent.
Rocky (1976): The new Broadway musical is getting stellar notices, so why not go the distance with Sylvester Stallone's original smash?
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007): NYC art giant Julian Schnabel proved himself a director of emotional boldness with this poststroke survival tale.
The English Patient (1996): Ralph Fiennes is back in a big way with The Grand Budapest Hotel; this one has the actor in his more serious, romantic mode.
