Spring is around the corner, and so are a few long-awaited Netflix films and shows to hopefully inspired a much more cheerful feeling all-around. And what better way to mark full year in quarantine than with some shiny new distractions?

You can start with Moxie, Amy Poehler’s latest directorial project for the streamer. Ushering in the riot grrrl ethos, this adaptation of Jennifer Mathieu’s novel follows high schooler Vivian Carter, who takes on the systemic sexism at her school and starts a feminist revolution via an anonymously distributed zine. If that’s not your thing, you can dip into some music history with the upcoming doc Biggie: I Got A Story To Tell, which takes a detailed look at the late Notorious B.I.G.’s career just shy of what would have been his 50th birthday.

This is also a promising month for both animation and some festival favorites. Bombay Rose, a film by Gitanjali Rao and produced by Cinestaan Film Company, happens to wade in both categories. According to Netflix, the TIFF selection and Chicago Film Festival winner is about “a young club dancer living in the streets of Bombay, must choose between fending for her family and finding love with a boy orphaned by the militancy. Painted frame by frame and woven delicately through music, a red rose brings together three tales of impossible loves. Love between two dreamers tested by duty and religious divides. Love between two women. Love of an entire city for its Bollywood stars.” March also marks the premiere of a new original anime DOTA: Dragon’s Blood, which follows “Davion, a renowned Dragon Knight devoted to wiping the scourge from the face of the world.”

But before you fire up something new, this might be the month to finish up that Weeds binge watch you’ve been talking about doing for months before it heads off of the platform at the end of March. Check out the full list of incoming and outgoing titles (or a glimpse at the quick reel, if you don’t feel like wading through all that) below.
