5 must-see movies on Netflix: Jan. 30–Jan. 31

Whether you want a family movie or a heartfelt story, check out the list of Netflix movies for the weekend.

Fatima

We start with the movie that will drop on Netflix on Sunday, Jan. 31. Fatima tells the story of children living in the Portuguese town of Fatima in 1917. They see an apparition of the Virgin Mary, but naturally, the Catholic church wants them to denounce everything and say they were lying.

When they refuse to, the children face scrutiny and aggressive tactics to silence them. The movie is based on a true story.

Penguin Bloom

Another movie based on a true story is Penguin Bloom, which came to Netflix earlier this week. Naomi Watts is Sam Bloom, a woman who suffers an accident that leaves her paralyzed from the waist down.

She struggles to move on with life, and that has an effect on her family. When her husband brings home an injured magpie, Sam realizes that there may be hope for her yet.

Below Zero

Need a thriller? One of the must-see movies on Netflix has you covered. It’s all about the Spanish movie Below Zero.

The movie is a little like Con Air but on land. When the prison transport bus gets stuck in the middle of nowhere, the prisoners decide to work together to take out the prison officer who was driving the bus.

June & Kopi

How about a heartfelt movie? June & Kopi is a must-watch, and it’s perfect for the entire family.

The movie focuses on a street dog who is brought in by a family. The other dog in the house shows this street dog all the ropes. But what happens when there’s a new member of the family to join? You’ll want to get some tissues ready for now and then, but it’s such a cute movie to check out.

The Dig

Finally, it’s all about another movie based on real events. Just before the Second World War, a woman wants to uncover what is under the mounds of dirt on her land. It’s some sort of burial ground, but it’s much bigger and stranger than anyone expected.

The Dig follows the story of the excavation of the Sutton Hoo.
