  • Directed by Sam Esmail
  • Cast: Julia Roberts, Mahershala Ali, Ethan Hawke, Myha'la, Kevin Bacon, and more 

Leave the World Behind premiered on Netflix on Nov. 22, 2023, and it’s one of the biggest Netflix movies of all time. The film tells the story of a family vacation gone wrong. When the Sandford family takes a vacation to a rental house outside of the city, they find themselves in a predicament as the owner and his daughter return home with news that society is on the brink of collapse. Strange things start to happen. 

Leave the World Behind might not be everything fans hope for, especially with a cast like this. That’s a huge draw to watch the movie. For me, I didn’t mind the story, and I liked most of the performances. It’s a bit similar to another movie released in the last few years, but I don’t want to give anything away. It’s best, I think, if fans know virtually nothing heading into this movie. 

Leave the World Behind is sixth most-watched Netflix original movie in its first month on the platform and is higher on the list than Extraction, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, and The Mother. That’s pretty impressive!
