Last Call: 50 Films Leaving Netflix This April (And 6 You Can't Miss)


Netflix giveth, and Netflix taketh away.

Although the streaming giant has added scads of exciting titles to its coffers with the recent release of its new-to-Netflix streaming titles for the month of April, plenty of equally beloved titles are leaving the service at the end of March. From Oscar darlings like “Hotel Rwanda” to classic features like “Some Came Running,” genre breakouts like “Leon: The Professional” and “Let the Right One In” and eye-opening documentaries like “Bill Cunningham New York,” Netflix is losing a ton of great material come the end of the month. Not to worry, however, there’s still time to catch up on anything (and everything) you’ve missed out on. Fire up your television, computer, iPad or other streaming device, and hop to it.

Below are all 50 movies leaving Netflix this March, plus Indiewire’s personal picks on what to see before it’s too late. Synopses provided by Netflix.
