Netflix Picks April 2017


"Across the Universe"

Set to songs by the Beatles, this film about an American girl falling in love with a British boy in the 1960s is perfect for all the dreamers out there.

"Mad Max: Fury Road"

George Miller's post-apocalyptic flick follows Max (Tom Hardy) and Imperator Furiosa (a fierce Charlize Theron) as they fight to help female warriors flee from tyranny.


"Bill Nye Saves the World"

The Emmy-nominated "science guy" is back and ready to bust myths.

"Las Chicas del Cable"

Set in Madrid in 1928, hundreds of women line up for a coveted gig as a phone operator, but only four of them get the job. Fans of costumes and period pieces must tune in.

With all the new shows and movies making their way to the 'flix, some older films and shows have got to go. Be sure to watch "The Princess Bride" and seasons 1-8 of "House, M.D." before they disappear on April 1. "Horrible Bosses 2" and "House of Lies" are also leaving the streaming service on April 10 and 15, respectively.
