New Netflix Movies & Shows This Week: Watch The Notebook And Cry A Bunch
It's a lighter week for Netflix, but there are still plenty of originals.
Romance is in the air this week. Well, at least it is on Netflix. If you're craving the loving embrace of someone you care for, but you'd rather vicariously live through a character in a movie instead of actually being near someone because of social distancing, there are plenty of movies and originals coming your way. Here's what new movies and TV shows you can expect to find on Netflix this week.
On Saturday, the Nicholas Sparks book The Notebook comes to life in the feature-length film of the same name. The movie follows a couple in the 1930s who want to be together but the young woman's mother won't allow it. After WWII, the man and woman rekindle their romance on the verge of her wedding to someone else. The film jumps forward in time to see that same woman in a nursing home, living with dementia, as her husband reads her journals to her to help her try to recall her past. It is a movie that wants you to cry. No, it needs you to cry. It feeds on your sadness and empathy.
Thursday, July 16, MILF lands on Netflix. In this movie--which actually came out in France in 2018--three women in their 40s go on vacation and have steamy romances with younger men. Ooh la la! The asks the question, "Can you find love later in life?" Without having seen the film, I can tell you the answer is yes.
Finally, there's The Business of Drugs docuseries, landing on Tuesday. The series follows a former CIA analyst, who is in no way in love with drugs, as they investigate six substances and the economics of it. This probably won't end with the analyst marrying cocaine. However, considering Netflix's track-record with docuseries, this may be one to keep on your radar.
