What’s leaving Netflix UK in April / May 2021?
James R | On 17, Apr 2021
While people still navigate their way through the coronavirus pandemic, Netflix UK’s sizeable library of movies and TV shows remains a handy resource for keeping entertained indoors.
But before you start bingeing through its new originals, don’t miss out on catching up with some other gems before their rights expire and they head to another service, or just disappear into the digital ether.
This is your last chance to stream the following on Netflix UK:
Catfish – 17th April
This eye-opening documentary is the most fun you can have watching someone else make friends online.
Space Jam – 19th April
Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny finally team up on screen for this enjoyably zany basketball-vs-aliens comedy.
Apollo 13 – 22nd April
Understatement works in favour of Ron Howard’s ground-breaking space drama.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall – 22nd April
Jason Segel stars and writes this delightful comedy about a guy trying to get over a break-up but finds his Hawaiian getaway disrupted by the arrival of his ex at the same resort. Contains the best puppet musical this side of Avenue Q.
The Bourne Series – 22nd April
Don’t miss your chance to binge through the first four films in the Bourne franchise.
Notting Hill – 22nd April
Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts are irresistible in this peak Richard Curtis rom-com
Life, Animated – 30th April
This must-see documentary is a moving tour de force of cinema.
Vox Lux – 1st May
Natalie Portman is formidable in this violently dark dissection of celebrity and success.
Birds of Passage – 4th May
Stunningly shot and epic in scope, this unique crime drama fuses gangster thrills with ethnographic observation
Rango – 4th May
A fantastic addition to the existential Western canon, but not an animation guaranteed to please the whole family.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – 5th May
Wholly unique and jaw-droppingly stylish, this progressive, post-modern story of parallel realities is one of the best superhero movies ever made.
Fast & Furious 7 – 6th May
This sixth sequel is bigger, sillier and surprisingly moving.
The Social Network – 13th May
A convincing case for a 21st Century Charles Foster Kane, The Social Network is a gripping, insightful drama of petty politics and understated genius.
20 Feet From Stardom – 14th May
Morgan Neville’s film about several generations of backing singers is engaging, candid and humming with infectious personality.
Fast Color – 14th May
Gugu Mbatha-Raw delivers a wonderful performance in this understated, quietly groundbreaking superhero drama.
Inside Man – 14th May
Spike Lee’s studio blockbuster is a slick, smart, spikily subversive thriller.
Cake (2018) – 14th May
Jennifer Aniston is excellent in this drama that makes you feel less alone in the world.
Sorry to Bother You – 14th May
Boots Riley’s absurd, shrewd satire of modern society is an unpredictable, entertaining ride.
RBG – 14th May
This likeable documentary shines a deserving spotlight on an inspiring woman in the US legal circuit.
Once Upon a Time – 18th May
Don’t miss your chance to binge your way through TV’s most optimistic (and ridiculous) fantasy show.
Piercing – 22nd May
A darkly comic giallo-esque romance, torturously literalising all the dynamics of S&M, while accommodating the persistence of trauma.
