Best New Movies and Series on Netflix This Week
Ehrengard: The Art of Seduction (2023)
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Director: Bille August
Cast: Sidse Babett Knudsen, Mikkel Boe Følsgaard, Emilie Kroyer Koppel
Writer: Anders Frithiof August, Karen Blixen
Runtime: 94 min / 1h 34m
Netflix’s biggest international movie released in quite some time is Ehrengard: The Art of Seduction, which should be a useful stopgap for those waiting for The Crown and Bridgerton to return.
Directed by the award-winning director Billie August, the movie is about an expert in love helping a prince in the art of seduction that leads to controversy and love.
A making-of documentary was also released on Netflix alongside the movie, so if you’re interested in how the feature was crafted, there’s plenty of extra content to dive into.
The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
Genre: Biography, Comedy, Crime
Director: Martin Scorsese
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie
Writer: Terence Winter, Jordan Belfort
Runtime: 180 min / 3h 0m
The Wolf of Wall Street really requires no introduction at this point. The excellent biopic from Scorsese documents the rise and eventual fall of the Wall Street wolf, Jordan Belfort.
It’s regularly rotated on and off Netflix, so it’s not like this movie is brand new, but given we’ve got Killers of the Flower Moon just around the corner, it’s a perfect time to revisit.
The Chosen (Season 1)
Number of episodes: 8
Genre: Drama, History
Cast: Elizabeth Tabish, Shahar Isaac, Paras Patel
Writer: Dallas Jenkins
Runtime: 55 mins
Premiering on Netflix around the world this week is the incredibly popular first season of the crowdfunded drama based on the Bible and Jesus Christ. The show recently aired on The CW and is now streaming on Netflix.
Here’s what you can expect if you’ve not checked out the series so far which sports a remarkable 9.1 on IMDb:
“This fresh take on the Gospels follows Jesus as he gathers his disciples, heals the needy and sacrifices himself for the sake of humanity.”
