If you hit up the Toronto Harbourfront on Thursday, you probably saw the massive floating barge advertising this new movie. The 14-year-later follow up from Sacha Baron Cohen is just as insane as the original. In this flick, watch Borat travel to America to take on current issues like Donald Trump and the coronavirus. It’s sure to be a wild ride!

This heart-wrenching drama-doc follows Fox Rich, a woman who is raising her family while fighting for her husband’s release from Louisiana State Penitentiary. The film was shot over the span of two decades, but it’s as poignant and relevant as ever. It premiered at Sundance Film Festival, where it won the U.S. Documentary Directing Award, and now it’s available on your very own screen.

Big week for Sacha Baron Cohen! Catch him along with Eddie Redmayne, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jeremy Strong, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and more in the latest flick from Aaron Sorkin. The story follows one of the most notorious trials in history after a peaceful protest turned into a violent exchange with the police. It’s witty, dramatic, and based on a true story. Plus, it’s already trending in Canada! So you know it’s gotta be good.

Where: Find it on Netflix.


Based on the novel by the same name, this chilling flick is a suspenseful thriller starring Armie Hamer and Lily James. It follows a newlywed couple who move into a haunted family estate. You may recognize the story from the 1940 version of the film by Alfred Hitchcock (which won the director his only Best Picture Oscar). But don’t worry, this time around it takes on a whole new life.

Where: Find it on Netflix.


Last but not least, we’ve got the brand new season of The Alienist: Angel of Darkness. You can catch Dakota Fanning, Luke Evans, Daniel Brühl, and more in this suspenseful drama following a psychologist who’s trying to catch a killer preying on homeless boys. It’s quite the dark series, so it’s the perfect addition to your line up of new releases.
