Alison Brie makes her screenwriting debut this week with the Netflix Film “Horse Girl.” The actor, who also stars as the film’s “horse girl,” is continuing a partnership with the streaming service that includes the series “GLOW” and “BoJack Horseman,” the latter of which just ended last week.

You can read more about “Horse Girl” and watch the trailer below.

Netflix also adds a few other movies this week, including one called “#cats_the_mewvie.” This is not the “Cats” you know and hate. Instead, it’s a documentary about cats on the internet.

Details: In this dramatic mystery, a woman experiences loneliness that’s tied to her deteriorating mental health.

The main cast includes Alison Brie, Jay Duplass, Paul Reiser, John Paul Reynolds, Debby Ryan and Molly Shannon. Brie co-wrote the script.

“Horse Girl” runs 1 hour, 44 minutes.

Watch On: Brie spoke to Vulture about the general concept of “horse girls” and what that term means to her.
