The best new movies on Netflix in March

Stuck on the couch and confronted with too many options? Netflix supplies modern-day classics during the month of March.

Million Dollar Baby

These days, Netflix is doing an amazing job with its original programming—from everyone’s favorite obsession, Stranger Things, to Ava DuVernay’s Oscar-nominated documentary13TH. They’re even going to produce the next Martin Scorsese movie, The Irishman, a gangster film starring Robert De Niro. That said, the streaming service’s rotating monthly selection remains strong—even if it does require some digging. Let us do the work for you. We’ve found some stellar indies, an unusually strong Best Picture Oscar winner, and the ultimate rock comedy.

Million Dollar Baby (2004)

When white-trash dreamer Hilary Swank wanders into wise old trainer Clint Eastwood’s backstreet gym, another Rocky fairytale looms, yet this modern fable takes us into darker territory—the perilous lure of success and the impassable road to redemption.
