If you’re in the mood to get lost in some amazing movies this weekend, but you don’t fancy being stuck in a cinema with screaming children and obnoxious adults who are checking their phones, you’re in a spot of luck.
Netflix has dropped a slew of new movies that are sure to keep you glued to the screen this weekend. From teen rom-coms that will make your heart thump, to sci-fi dramas that will keep you on the edge of your seat and even something you can watch with your mum on Mother’s Day, here are the options you’re going to want to add to your Netflix queue immediately.
This science fiction thriller takes place in a future where technology has rendered privacy obsolete and a detective must investigate a serial assassin who has been deleted from all visual records.
But in trying to solve a series of murders, detective Sal Frieland (played by Clive Owen) stumbles upon a young woman known only as “The Girl” ( played by Amanda Seyfried). She has no identity, no history and is invisible to the police.
Sal then realizes this may not be the end of crime after all.
ANON is available on Netflix now.
The Kissing Booth
This romantic comedy flick is based on teen author Beth Reekles’ novel of the same name.
The movie follows Elle Evans (played by Joey King), a 16-year-old high school student who’s popular and loves to party but has never been kissed. When she ends up in a kissing booth with her secret crush, she is swept up in a romance with the hottest boy in school.
Things get a lot more complicated in the story thanks to the fact that this boy happens to be the brother of Elle’s best friend, meaning she has to keep the romance secret.
The Kissing Booth is available now on Netflix.
If you have not watched this iconic and game-changing movie, then you must change that it this weekend.
Mulholland Drive is an American neo-noir mystery film that was written and directed by the great David Lynch. It tells the story of an aspiring young actress named Betty Elms (played by Naomi Watts in her Hollywood break-out role).
When Betty arrives in Los Angeles in attempt to make all of her acting dreams come true she meets and befriends an amnesiac woman (played by Laura Harring) who is hiding in an apartment which belongs to Betty’s aunt.
Things get pretty dark and twisted from there, and it’s important to note that Mulholland Drive is not exactly a movie that’s there to be understood or to deliver a concise and well-rounded plot.
It’s just a movie that you sit back and experience.
Mulholland Drive is available now on Netflix.
A movie that's dropped on Netflix just in time for you to watch it with your mum this weekend, how sweet.
This movie follows different yet slightly intertwined groups of people who come together in the week leading up to Mother's Day.
There's Sandy (played by Jennifer Aniston, who is in standard rom-com mode here) a divorced mother of two young boys whose ex-husband has recently remarried.
There's also Miranda (played Julia Roberts, also not playing against type in her typical rom-com fashion) an accomplished writer who gave up her only child for adoption at birth. Rounding out the mix is Jesse (played by another rom-com staple in Kate Hudson) who is surprised when her own parents come to visit her and they must all come to terms with their failing relationship.
Mother's Day is available to watch now on Netflix.

This Italian drama film is perfect for anyone looking for something a little darker and a little grittier to watch this weekend.
Forgive Us Our Debts is now available on Netflix.
