Movies help provide an escape for a bit, but sometimes the best ones are the ones that leave you thinking about them for days. If you’ve been looking for a movie that’ll impact you tremendously, the great thing is that there are plenty of thought-provoking films coming out on Netflix next month. The films coming to Netflix in August range from thrillers that’ll have you on the edge of your seat like Afflicted, to enlightening documentaries like Inequality for All. Plus, Netflix is also bringing tons of intriguing Academy Award-winning dramas, including No Country for Old Men, The Aviator, and Million Dollar Baby.
Not all thought-provoking films need to be intense dramas or thrillers, though. This list also includes some more light-hearted flicks that are just as compelling, including the classic Steel Magnolias and Netflix’s upcoming adaptation of New York Times Best Seller To All The Boys I’ve Ever Loved Before. There’s a bit of something for everyone, with a variety of genres that offer riveting stories that’ll keep you entertained throughout the month. So if you’ve been eagerly awaiting for these films to be available to stream, now’s your chance to do so before Netflix eventually removes them to make way for other great ones.
