    Top 5 Netflix Movies

    Top 5 Netflix Movies

    With thousands of movies to choose from, it can be difficult to know what to watch on Netflix. That’s why I’m here, giving you the top 5 best movies on Netflix and what they’re about. 

    Starting us off today we have:

    1. Pieces of a Woman

    This is arguably one of Netflix’s best first outings of the year. Starring Vanessa Kirby, Shia LaBoeuf, and Ellen Burstyn, Pieces of a Woman is the heartbreaking story of a tragic pregnancy whose aftermath cuts through a marriage like a sharp knife.

    Next, we have:

    2. The Dig

    The Dig transports us to early 20th century Britain on the verge of World War II, where a wealthy widow (Carey Mulligan) enlists an archeologist to excavate the burial mounds on her land. What he unearths is a medieval ship, discovering all the secrets of history held within it.

    3. Finding ‘Ohana

    If you’re looking for a kid-friendly movie that you might actually enjoy, Finding ‘Ohana seems like a solid bet. Picture The Goonies but in modern-day Hawaii, where two Brooklyn-raised siblings reconnect with their roots on an adventure to find a long-lost treasure and save their grandfather’s home.

    Honestly, this next one is one of my favorites. Many people are unable to take in what the director was trying to do but personally, I love every bit of it.

    4. Malcolm and Marie

    In March, as the world screeched to a halt, Zendaya teamed up with Euphoria writer-director Sam Levinson to begin work on this secret film—one of the first shots during the pandemic. John David Washington and Zendaya play filmmaker Malcolm and his girlfriend Marie, respectively, who must confront truths about their relationship after returning home from Malcolm’s movie premiere.

    If you have seen the first two of these movies, then you’ll absolutely love this one. 

    5. To All the Boys: Always and Forever

    Lara Jean Covey is back for the final cinematic installment of the beloved high school rom-com. Based on the acclaimed books by Jenny Han, the third film takes Lara Jean on trips to Korea and New York City, as she faces the challenges of sustaining her relationship through the onset of college and young adulthood.
