Have you been checking out the new releases on Netflix this month? We're talking about shows and movies like Fool Me Once, The Brothers Sun, Good Grief and Gyeongseong Creature part 2. And there's still much more to come throughout the month. However, there have also been some departures.

At the beginning of January, we saw movies like Jordan Peele's Get Out, the horror flick Ma and the black comedy film BlacKkKlansman leave the streamer. We even saw the second season of Love Island USA make its exit. The reason being that they were licensed content that Netflix had streaming rights to for a certain length of time.

Unfortunately, this show and these movies won't be the last we see leaving the streaming platform. Many other movies and shows are set to leave Netflix in January. But there are four romantic movies we strongly recommend that you watch before they depart. Luckily, they aren't scheduled to leave the streamer until the end of the month so you have some time. We shared the titles of those movies below.

Call Me by Your Name

Departure date: Jan. 31, 2024

You might recognize Timothée Chalamet from starring as Paul Atreides in the sci-fi film Dune or as Willy Wonka in the musical fantasy film Wonka, but before he took on these roles, he was Elio Perlman in the romantic drama Call Me by Your Name. A box-office hit that went on to be nominated for multiple awards and ultimately winning the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.

It's a movie taking place in the '80s in northern Italy. 17-year-old Elio Perlman spends time with his family in the Italian countryside when he meets Oliver, a good-looking 24-year-old doctoral student who's working as an assistant for his father. As they get to know one another over the summer, they begin to form a life-changing bond that turns into love.

Armie Hammer plays the role of Oliver. Joining him and Chalamet in the cast are Michael Stuhlbarg, Amira Casar, Esther Garrel, Victoire Du Bois, and others.

Eat Pray Love

Departure date: Jan. 31, 2024

Based on the bestselling memoir of the same name by Elizabeth Gilbert is a romantic drama film following a new divorcee named Liz who is facing a turning point in her life. This leads her on journey of self-discovery that takes her all around the world. And on this journey, she finds true love.

Academy Award-winning actress Julia Roberts stars in the leading role as Liz. The rest of the cast includes James Franco, Richard Jenkins, Viola Davis, Billy Crudup, Javier Bardem, and others.

La La Land

Departure date: Jan. 31, 2024

Regarded as one of the best musical and romantic movies of all time, La La Land should definitely be added to your watchlist. It stars Poor Things star Emma Stone as an aspiring actress and Barbie's Ryan Gosling as a down-on-his-luck pianist, who while navigating their careers in Los Angeles, meet and fall in love. But will their determination to chase their dreams get in the way of romance? John Legend, Rosemarie DeWitt, Finn Wittrock, and J. K. Simmons are also in the cast.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Departure date: Jan. 31, 2024

We recommend saving Forgetting Sarah Marshall for last because it's more lighthearted than the other films on the list.

Jason Segel stars as a music composer named Peter Bretter, who after being suddenly dumped by his girlfriend of five years, decides to take a trip to Hawaii to cheer up. But his trip doesn't go as planned when he bumps into his ex-girlfriend and her new British rock star boyfriend.

Kristen Bell plays the role of Sarah Marshall, Peter's ex-girlfriend, while Russell Brand portrays Aldous Snow, Sarah's new boyfriend. Mila Kunis, Bill Hader, Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd, and Jason Bateman also appears in the movie.
