So it’s officially spring. Instead of celebrating in high-waisted shorts, we’re having to celebrate with our jackets on and snacking on office take-out. But we aren’t letting snowflakes get us down—we’re looking forward to Netflix’s new April titles (and the warmer weather that will hopefully follow).
Starting April 1st, Netflix will be removing some pretty longtime favorites: Mystic Pizza, Friday the 13th, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and Sense and Sensibility will all sadly, disappear from our queues. They will be missed, but their absence will be filled with the addition of some choice picks. Here are our faves:
Halt & Catch Fire, season 1
This AMC sabout the 80s Silicon Prairie features Mackenzie Davis as badass programmer Cameron Howe. There’s also the added bonus of seeing Lee Pace and his eyebrows every episode.
Australian actress Jennifer Kent’s debut as writer/director ended up being a runaway hit, and for good reason. This monster is still haunting our dreams.
Goodbye to Language
Check out Jean Luc Godard’s 42nd film, an experimental 3D narrative essay (what a mouthful), for a stellar performance from Heloise Godet.
They Came Together
David Wain’s most recent project may not be the timeliest parody (it basically satirizes all of You’ve Got Mail), but it’s pretty winning. Plus we’ll watch anything with Amy P. Anything.
A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night
This Iranian take on the vampire thriller is maybe our favorite pop culture item from this year. Catch it on Netflix before it’s even gone from NYC theaters!
