This New Rom-Com Is The Top Movie On Netflix Right Now

“A Family Affair” is currently the most popular movie on Netflix, according to the platform’s public ranking system.

Released on June 28, this new rom-com stars Nicole Kidman as a widowed mother who engages in a secret relationship with a much-younger Hollywood actor (played by Zac Efron) ― who also happens to be her adult daughter’s boss. Joey King and Kathy Bates also appear in the film.

“A Family Affair” has received mixed reviews from critics ― standing in contrast to the recent Amazon Prime Video age-gap rom-com, “The Idea of You,” which was much better received.

“Problemista” is the second most popular movie on Max at the moment. The surrealist comedy premiered in theaters in March to mostly positive reviews.

Written, directed, and co-produced by Julio Torres, the film also stars Tilda Swinton, RZA, Greta Lee and Isabella Rossellini.

“Fancy Dance”

The top movie on Apple TV+ right now is “Fancy Dance,” which joined the streaming service on June 28 following a limited theatrical release and premiere at Sundance Film Festival in 2023.

A win for Indigenous representation in film, “Fancy Dance” was directed by Erica Tremblay and stars Lily Gladstone. Reviewers have praised its depiction of life on a reservation.

“Red Right Hand” 

The most popular movie on Hulu at the moment is “Red Right Hand” ― an action thriller starring Orlando Bloom and Andie MacDowell.

Bloom plays a former criminal in a small Appalachian town who is forced to confront his past and return to violence to protect his family. Although the film received mixed reviews from critics upon its release in February, “Red Right Hand” seems to be reaching a wider audience on the streaming platform.

“The Devil’s Bath”

The period drama “The Devil’s Bath” is currently trending on AMC+. A co-production from Austria and Germany, the film premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival in February.

“The Devil’s Bath” follows a young newlywed in 18th century Austria as she struggles with depression and a sense of helplessness in her circumstances.
