If You Need Something to Watch, Here’s What’s New on Netflix in April

The Matrix movie

Our streaming networks must be seeing unprecedented viewership, as there’s little competition these days for entertainment that’s not played on personal devices indoors. With April on its way—hopefully bringing with it the promised April showers, to keep people who can’t seem to abide life-saving social distancing rules inside—here’s what will be fresh on Netflix.

As always, our picks for media that we either already recommend or are eager to watch for the first time are bolded and italicized.
