Netflix's June streaming highlights include "Wasp Network," "Clueless," and bonafide American classics like "West Side Story" and "Lady Bird."

“Lady Bird”

June 2020 is going to be an interesting month on Netflix, as the streaming giant tries to stave off a sudden influx of new competition (led by HBO Max) by offering a deep grab bag of new and licensed content that showcases the company’s unrivaled ability to offer just about anything it wants.

It’s hard to scoff at a slate of Netflix Originals that includes new films from both Spike Lee (“Da 5 Bloods,” which wasn’t available to watch in time to be considered for this list) and Olivier Assayas (“Wasp Network”), especially when those films are served up alongside other contemporary finds like Sam de Jong’s “Goldie,” which had not found proper American distribution until Netflix picked it up.

Meanwhile, a small clutch of absolute classics (“West Side Story,” “E.T.”) are joined by some more contemporary comfort food (“Casper,” “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan”), and an A24 treasure that splits the difference between the two (“Lady Bird”). Here are the seven best movies new to stream on Netflix in June 2020.
