Welcome to Flavorwire’s streaming movie guide, in which we help you sift through the scores of movies streaming on Netflix, Hulu, and other services to find the best of the recently available, freshly relevant, or soon to expire. This week, there’s good stuff from Steve Martin, Keira Knightley, Robert DeNiro, Edward Norton, Michael Caine, Ben Stiller, William H. Macy, Marlon Brando, Eva Mendes, Dreama Walker, Laura Prepon, Charlton Heston, Carl Reiner, Sam Worthington, and more. Check them out after the jump, and follow the title links to watch them right now.
Most of this week’s recommendations are catalog titles newly streaming (or re-streaming), but here’s a new release of note: Ishai Setton’s comedy/drama about a surprise birthday party in which secrets are told, lies are revealed, and relationships are changed, all told in the one room where things actually happen at a house party. The picture is wildly uneven, but it’s got a snappy, conversational wit and outstanding performances by Laura Prepon, Tate Ellington, and (especially) Don’t Trust the B’s Dreama Walker. Often entertaining, frequently engaging, and energetically staged.
