Winner of three Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actress, Nomadland is available on Disney+.
“After losing everything in the Great Recession, a woman embarks on a journey through the American West, living as a van-dwelling modern-day nomad.“
The Father on Apple TV (Rent)
Winner of two Oscars, including an upset win by Anthony Hopkins over Chadwick Boseman for Best Actor, The Father is available to rent from iTunes and others for $19.99.
“A man refuses all assistance from his daughter as he ages. As he tries to make sense of his changing circumstances, he begins to doubt his loved ones, his own mind and even the fabric of his reality.“
Judas and the Black Messiah on Apple TV (Rent)
Winner of two Academy Awards, Judas and the Black Messiah is available to rent from Apple TV for $24.99CDN now.
“Bill O'Neal infiltrates the Black Panther Party per FBI Agent Mitchell and J. Edgar Hoover. As Party Chairman Fred Hampton ascends, falling for a fellow revolutionary en route, a battle wages for O'Neal's soul.“
Mank on Netflix
Winner of two Academy Awards, including Best Cinematography, Mank is available now to watch on Netflix.
“1930's Hollywood is reevaluated through the eyes of scathing social critic and alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz as he races to finish the screenplay of Citizen Kane (1941).“
Winner of two Academy Awards, Sound of Metal will be available on Crave on May 14, 2021.

Minari on Apple TV (Rent)

“A young woman, traumatized by a tragic event in her past, seeks out vengeance against those who crossed her path.“
An excellent picture that sadly did not win any of the six Academy Awards for which it was nominated. The movie is available now on Netflix.
“The story of 7 people on trial stemming from various charges surrounding the uprising at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, Illinois.“

 
You've heard about it - but who actually carries it?

Bridgerton on Netflix
Wealth, lust, and betrayal set against the backdrop of Regency-era England, seen through the eyes of the powerful Bridgerton family.
You will never look at Woody Allen (and his work) the same way again after watching this powerful 4-part documentary detailing the abuse his daughter Dylan endured while in his care.
The general critical and fan reaction to this update is favourable, and word is that it finally realizes Snyder's original vision for the film he had to leave for personal reasons.
WandaVision on Disney+
This mini-series of nine episodes went from "what the heck is this" to "must-see (streaming) TV" over its two-month run on Disney Plus. A fascinating mix of humor and action in a superhero story.
Possibly the most important mini-series of 2020, the Queen's Gambit won two Golden Globe awards, and proved that television could take something seemingly dull and make it great entertainment.
