What’s New on Netflix: April 2019

Film

‘Five Feet Apart’ is a Feel-Good Tear-Jerker, and Unsurprisingly So

For the most part, “Five Feet Apart” checks off all the boxes: Expect to chuckle liberally, cringe occasionally, and cry inevitably (although not quite when one would expect).

‘Transit’ still
Film

‘Transit’ Is a Complex Study of War and Migration

Netflix’s ‘Paris Is Us’ Takes You Down the Rabbit Hole

However stunning the film’s cinematography, Vogler severely dilutes it with a mélange of incomprehensible monologues.
