As we look back on the chaotic year that was, we send thanks to the pillars of strength that got us through. Loungewear, organic wine and of course, streaming platform Netflix. With our sights set firmly on the new year ahead, (and the positive energy we're hoping it delivers), what better way to bid adieu than by indulging in the latest list of Netflix January releases?
After an impressive rollout of highly-anticipated films and series including the scandal-filled period drama, Bridgerton and Chadwick Boseman's final film, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, topping the streaming platform's December release list will be no easy feat. Notable mentions for Netflix's January releases are of course the addition of both Sex and the City films, a nostalgic return to 2009 Zac Efron in 17 Again and a much needed series on guided mediation led by wellness organisation, Headspace.
The Minimalists: Less is More (2021)
Longtime friends Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus have built their own movement out of the art of minimalism. Their documentary, The Minimalists: Less is More is the ultimate lesson in how our lives can be better with less.
Bonnie and Clyde (1967)
An undeniable classic, we love nothing more than rewatching Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway star as the legendary and infamous Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker. Bank robbing aside, can we please talk about their outfits?
Pretend It's a City (2021)
Prolific author Fran Lebowitz teams up with Martin Scorcese discusses life in New York City as a reader, walker and incisive observer of the changes in contemporary culture and the city in his new series, Pretend It's a City.
Four Christmases (2008)
While it might be coming a little late in the festive cycle, there's nothing we love more than watching our favourite Christmas movies into the new year. Four Christmases, starring Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon is one of the all-time greats.
The History of Swear Words (2021)
Only the internet's favourite actor, Nicolas Cage, could host an entire series on the history of swear words – and we are 100% here for it. History of Swear Words will consist of six 20-minute episodes, and will unpack swear words such as “fuck,” “shit,” “bitch,” “dick,” “pussy” and “damn”, delving into each word's origin, history, cultural impact and influence - and even their pop culture usage.
