What To Watch On Netflix Canada In April 2019

Sabrina and her chilling adventures are back to bring on your binge game.

Netflix has announced it will be ending its streaming service immediately, to the dismay of almost the world over. OK, OK, totally not a funny April Fool's joke. Can you even imagine a world without weekend binging? One in which we may actually have to put on pants and socialize?

Since this thankfully isn't the case, resume normal, enjoyable non-adulting with the return of some of our faves (Hello, "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina") as well as new offerings that'll force you to spring clean your binge-list and replace old picks with a few that'll be sure to spark joy.


"Boyz n the Hood" — Available April 1

In 1991, John Singleton became the youngest Academy Award nominee for Best Director for his debut film "Boyz N the Hood."

In 1991, at just 23 years old, John Singleton made his explosively powerful debut with "Boyz N the Hood," depicting the lives of three young males living in the tough Crenshaw area of Los Angeles. The hard-hitting film dissects questions of race, relationships and violence. Singleton became the youngest person and the first Black American to be nominated for a Best Director Oscar. And rightfully so. If you haven't yet seen this classic with Regina King, Ice Cube, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Laurence Fishburne, you know what to do.

"Someone Great" — Available April 19

Gina Rodriguez is "someone great."

To nurse her broken heart, Jenny gathers up her two best friends Erin (DeWanda Wise) and Blair (Brittany Snow) for one outrageous last adventure in New York City. From writer/director Jennifer Kaytin Robinson (creator of MTV's "Sweet/Vicious").

"The Perfect Date" — Available April 9

I would take that hand and never give it back.

"Little Women" — Available April 28

This 1994 post-Civil War American classic starring Winona Ryder (who was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for this role), Susan Sarandon, Kirsten Dunst, Claire Danes and Christian Bale should also be on your must-see list if you haven't watched it yet. That way, you can familiarize yourself with this classic before the Greta Gerwig–helmed new adaptation is released later this year.
