I’ve been meaning to post this blog about five movies worth streaming right now. With Spring coming in full force, everyone is wanting to get back outside and enjoy the warmth and fresh air. But, once the sun goes down and those pesky bugs come out, we’re back to the couch or bed. Here are five movies worth streaming right now to keep you busy. My bonus streaming favorite is the Wendy Williams documentary and movie!
Pieces of a Woman- When a young mother’s home birth ends in an unexpected tragedy, life as she knows it crumbles into a million pieces. She grapples with grief, blame, and her relationships with those closest to her. It’s a tale of loss, grief, and healing and will 100 percent get you in your feels. This movie certainly weighs on your heart strings, but was such a great movie!
Deadly Illusions- When a bestselling novelist experiences a case of writer’s block, she hires a seemingly innocent young woman to look over her children. When she dives deep into the writing of her book, lines are crossed as she finds that there is more to her new nanny than meets the eye. It’s thrilling, it’s steamy, and it’s earned itself a spot on your “to-watch” list. This movie is definitely a thriller and will have your mind running rapid.
The Handmaiden- It’s not often you hear romance, drama, psychological, and thriller in the same sentence. This movie tells the complex story of an orphaned pickpocket and a Korean man who team up to seduce a Japanese woman and steal her big inheritance. This story is told in three parts from different viewpoints and different truths emerge along the way. This movie was a good one and highly recommend.
Harriet- This movie tells the tale of abolitionist Harriet Tubman from her escape from slavery to her dangerous mission to free slaves during the Civil War. This film stars Cynthia Erivo as Harriet and, her performance is absolutely spectacular. This long-overdue tribute is powerful, heartbreaking, and undoubtedly worth the watch!
Little Woods- If you’re in the mood for a dramatic crime thriller, this is the movie for you! When their mother passes, two distanced sisters are brought together to pay back their late mother’s mortgage, even if it means paying it back in less than legal ways. This movie offered a lot of twists and turns and was a great watch!
