11. Holiday in the Wild

Release Year: 2019

Directed By: Ernie Barbarash

Starring: Rob Lowe, Kristin Davis, Keeno-Lee Hector

Release Date: Friday, Nov. 1

Netflix kicks off the holiday season before you can even finish your Halloween candy with the premiere of Holiday in the Wild on the first of November. If you’re accustomed to the usual Christmas romantic comedies set in snowy locales, Holiday in the Wild mixes it up and offers something new to the seasonal genre. Given the film’s star power and fresh take on the typical formula, this one definitely ranks as one of the best new releases of the month.

Kristin Davis stars in Holiday in the Wild as New Yorker Kate Conrad, whose seemingly perfect life gets turned upside down when her husband walks out on her just before the two set off to celebrate their second honeymoon on an African safari. Down but not out, Kate decides to take a solo safari and remains on the trip through Christmas, leaving time for Kate to gain a new lease on life among the wildlife. During the trip, Kate learns to follow her heart in more ways than one.

Holiday in the Wild comes from director Ernie Barbarash, who also helmed Netflix’s 2017 original Christmas film Christmas Inheritance. The film also stars Rob Lowe, making this Christmas rom-com pairing one of the biggest in recent memory. As the market for holiday-themed romance movies continues to become overcrowded and competitive, Netflix sets itself apart with unique and creative stories that make viewers want to seek out their original content. Be sure to put Holiday in the Wild on your watch list and check it out (twice) when it premieres on Nov. 1.
