MENUMENU

10 new movies on Netflix you need to see in March

There’s a lot to look forward to.

Netflix is dropping 17 new original movies in March 2019, and that’s not even counting the dozens of other new shows and licensed titles that will land on the service over the course of the month. It’s almost too much to keep track of. While the majority of those Netflix Originals are international titles, there are some major new releases you should know about. Here are all of the new movies on Netflix you should know about, including a few you can already watch this weekend.

New movies to watch on Netflix in March 2019

1) High Flying Bird

High Flying Bird tells the story of a sports agent caught in the crosshairs of an NBA lockout who tries to end it on his own. A strong script from Moonlight screenwriter Tarell Alvin McCraney and a leading performance from André Holland make this potentially insider story compelling, and the film takes on the NBA’s long history of exploiting Black athletes in the process. —Michelle Jaworski

2) Paddleton

Paddleton follows Andy and Michael, two best friends who must grapple with Michael’s diagnosis of terminal cancer. The two men stick to their routine, which includes watching kung fu movies and playing their made-up game called Paddleton. Mark Duplass and Ray Romano give terrific performances in the leading roles, capturing what it means to be a friend, even if their characters have a hard time expressing themselves. Paddleton is a small, intimate movie that’s both funny and sad without ever becoming overly sentimental. —Eddie Strait

3) Paris Is Us

Elisabeth Vogler’s Paris Is Us follows Anna, a young Parisian woman in search of reality, authentic experiences, and anything that will tether her to people and the world. Feeling an increasing sense of isolation, Anna questions everything about reality, from everyday experiences down to whether she’s just living in a simulation. Vogler shoots the film with a floating, fluid camera that creates indelible imagery and puts you in Anna’s headspace. It’s an immersive and unique experience. —Eddie Strait

4) The Photographer of Mauthausen

Netflix honors a World War II hero and photographer Francisco Boix in its newly acquired Spanish film, The Photographer of Mauthausen. The film, which follows Boix as he attempts to smuggle photos that incriminate the Nazi party of war treason while in the Mauthausen concentration camp, is predictably dark, somber, and incredibly difficult to watch—but an essential film about the Holocaust and the importance of upholding the truth. —Tess Cagle

5) The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind (March 1)

If you’re looking for a feel-good movie, try The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, the remarkable true story of William Kamkwamba (Maxwell Simba), a 13-year-old boy who reads about wind turbines in the library and attempts to build one from scrap parts to save his rural village in Malawi. It’s based on his 2009 memoir and serves as the directorial debut of lead actor Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Alfre Woodard stars as a grandmother so desperate to get her mojo back and find some meaning she boards a Greyhound to Butte, Montana—and doesn’t look back.

7) Walk. Ride. Rodeo. (March 8)

Rodeo barrel racer Amberley Snyder was paralyzed from the waist down in a car accident at 19. She wasn’t supposed to walk again, let alone ride, but those familiar with her story know she doesn’t let that stop her from getting back in the saddle—literally.

8) Triple Frontier (March 13)

Oscar Isaac. Ben Affleck. Charlie Hunnam. Garrett Hedlund. Pedro Pascal. A violent cartel. A heist. This is blockbuster entertainment headed straight to your small screens.

9) The Dirt (March 22)

the dirt netflix march 2019 Netflix

Nothing epitomizes sex, drugs, and rock & roll like The Dirt, Mötley Crüe’s absolutely filthy tell-all about their exploits along Sunset Strip. The book gets the biopic treatment it’s long-deserved courtesy of Jackass‘ Jeff Tremaine and a loaded cast (pun intended) that includes Machine Gun Kelly,  Pete Davidson, and more.

10) The Highwaymen (March 29)

You know the story of Bonnie and Clyde. But The Highwaymen flips the script, recounting their crimes and exploits from the perspective of the Texas Rangers (Woody Harrelson and Kevin Costner) who tracked them down. There aren’t many Westerns on Netflix, so this biopic makes for a welcomed addition.
