What Are the Top 5 Movies on Netflix?
Netflix is home to hundreds of movies from all genres, and it can be overwhelming choosing which one to watch. Fortunately, we have narrowed the selection down to the top five movies available on Netflix right now.
1. The Irishman
Martin Scorsese’s epic crime drama follows mob hitman Frank Sheeran as he reflects on his life as a hitman for the Bufalino crime family and his involvement in the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa.
The star-studded cast includes Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Al Pacino, and Harvey Keitel. It is an intense look at organized crime with its themes of loyalty and betrayal.
2. Marriage Story
This heartbreaking drama from writer-director Noah Baumbach follows a married couple (Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson) going through a divorce.
Through flashbacks, we get to see their relationship before it starts to unravel due to issues such as communication breakdowns, infidelity, and parenting differences. It is an intimate look at marriage and divorce that will keep you hooked until the very end.
3. The Two Popes
This film follows Pope Benedict XVI (Anthony Hopkins) as he reluctantly decides to resign from his papacy in order for Pope Francis (Jonathan Pryce) to take over. Over the course of several meetings between them both, they discuss faith, politics, and theology while forming an unlikely friendship that transcends their differences in opinion.
Alfonso Cuarón’s semi-autobiographical drama takes place in Mexico City during 1970s where we follow Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), an indigenous live-in maid for an upper middle-class family as she navigates family life while dealing with her own personal struggles. The film is a beautiful tribute to Cuarón’s childhood nanny Libo Rodriguez.
5. Bird Box
This post-apocalyptic thriller starring Sandra Bullock follows a woman trying to protect two children from unseen forces that cause people who see them to commit suicide when they do so without protection (the infamous “bird box challenge”). It is a gripping suspenseful movie with an unexpected twist at the end that will leave you wanting more.
These five movies offer something for everyone – from mobsters to popes – so whatever your taste in films there should be something here for you!
