Netflix Canada: What's Good In December 2016?

Prepare your eyeballs.

Ah, the holidays. A time for good food, quality family time and, more importantly, stamping a butt-shaped dent in the couch while watching Netflix.

The streaming service has a haul of goodies coming up that will keep you glued to your screen.

Historical drama "12 Years a Slave" and war thriller "The Hurt Locker" are two excellent, award-winning entries coming to Netflix in December.

And Netflix's trove of original content also looks like it'll get even better with the Barack Obama biopic "Barry" and "Call Me Francis," a miniseries that follows the early life of Pope Francis.

Check out more of Netflix Canada's December offerings in the slideshow below. You can find our picks under the gallery:



This Netflix biopic follows a young Barack Obama while he was a student in New York City. This should serve as a nice distraction while the world prepares itself for a Donald Trump presidency.

"12 Years a Slave"

Steve McQueen's powerful 2013 film, which is based on a true story, follows Solomon Northup, a free black man who is abducted and sold into slavery.


Haha just kidding!
