Movies on Demand is a cinephile’s delight in March, as there are plenty of awards-friendly titles to catch up on after the most explosive Oscars ever. Check out three of our favorite films below, as well as the full list of great movies available.

1) “Jackie” (Available March 7)


Pablo Larraín’s brilliant film is so much more than a run-of-the-mill biopic, elevated by Oscar-nominated turns including Natalie Portman’s complex portrayal of Jackie Kennedy, and Mica Levi’s haunting score. One of the year’s best surprises from a director as the height of his powers.

2) “Fences” (Available March 14)


This Oscar nominee for Best Picture is a wonderful interpretation of August Wilson’s play, anchored by acting powerhouses Denzel Washington and Viola Davis. Get the tissues ready for one of 2016’s most immediate and gut-wrenching films.

3) “Moana” (Available March 7)


Need a great movie to keep the whole family entertained? Try “Moana,” which does Disney right. This Oscar for Best Animated Feature nominee is a beautiful and bright journey that modernizes cartoon tropes while keeping the warm heart intact. Plus, you will be singing Lin-Manuel Miranda’s great original songs for days.
