Netflix offers a couple of golden eggs this month if you know where to look. Here are five choices that are totally ten-buck worthy.
Enchanted April (1991)
Four British women rent a chateau on a remote Italian island in this sophisticated romantic comedy. I watch this breezy gem every April. Trust me; it’s charming enough for you to do the same. Available now.
This Netflix original features an edgy comic who will be on everyone’s radar soon. You may know him from his sitcoms: Whitney, Workaholics and NBC’s rising hit Undateable. But a lot more people are going to clue in to his fine brand of funny now that he roasted Justin Beaver on Comedy Central. Available April 17
A Five Star Life (2014)
Hop into the life of Irene, a luxury hotel critic for about two hours (please!). A five star hotel is the height of luxury, of course. Although this film isn't a five star story, the settings are breathtaking and it's fun to see Irene simply doing her job — and learn a little about that industry. It's worth the trip. Available now.
If you haven’t seen all fifty shades of Wachowski Brother’s (Matrix) film starring Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon, now’s your chance. Netflix adds this surprisingly good erotic thriller on April 1, no foolin'.
After watching Bound, you may feel the need to check out this epic film from last year (2014). I expect this bloated, big budget film, starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Hopkins, will play better in the comfort of home versus than it did in the theater. Save it for a rainy day. Available April 18
Worth ten bucks: All are ten-buck worthy.
Bonus unseen film, but a good bet: Marvel’s Daredevil (2015)
I’m not suggesting you watch the Ben Affleck bomb, but I think Netflix’s new series with Marvel is a good bet; Daredevil was always one of the more interesting super heroes. The first three episodes will be available to stream beginning April 10th.
