And just like that, the first month of 2021 is nearly over, and it's already time to start looking ahead to the shortest month of the year and what streaming content will be on offer. You can take a look at what Netflix, Shudder, and Hulu have teed up for February--here's a look at Amazon Prime Video for the month coming up.

Prime Video is setting the mood right for Valentine's Day by right out of the gate on February 1 offering up tons of rom-coms, romantic misadventures, and all sorts of movies and limited series that explore romantic relationships. Standouts well worth a repeat viewing--or making a point of seeing if it's the first time--include the series Modern Love (adapted from the real-life personal essay New York Times column from the same name) and Fleabag (adapted from Phoebe Waller-Bridge's incredible 2013 one-woman show of the same name about her quest for love). You don't even have to wait until February 1 to watch those, and probably shouldn't, in fact.

If romance isn't your thing, director Christopher Nolan's The Prestige is a definite palate cleanser. It hits Prime Video on the first of the month. A mystery-thriller released back in 2006, based on the 1995 novel of the same name by Christopher Priest, the movie follows a cutting rivalry between stage magicians in London at the end of the 19th century. There's definitely no love between Hugh Jackman as Robert Angier and Christian Bale as Alfred Borden as they become obsessed with one-upping each other to achieve the best stage illusion.

On February 16, the documentary Catfish--which popularized the term--is coming to Prime Video. This is the original story of a man believing he is building a romantic relationship with a young woman through Facebook--but hopefully a spoiler alert isn't necessary to reveal that the film documents the resulting fallout and devastation when it's made clear the romance was carried out via fake accounts.

Below, you'll find everything coming to Amazon Prime Video for the month of February.
