New on Netflix: All the Movies and TV Coming in March

Here’s what we know about March: It comes in like a lion, leaves like a lamb, has dangerous “ides,” and also St. Patrick’s Day. Plus, there’s Madness! But here’s something you may not have known: Netflix, streaming giant, has a whole slate of new movies and TV shows hitting the airwaves! This month, we welcome one of Bill Murray’s greatest hits, the second season of an incredible British detective show, a thoughtful treatise on love and addiction, and a fascinating documentary about the fight for a lost limb. Check out our featured recommendations, and read on for the full list of movies and TV premiering on Netflix this month.


Groundhog Day

Year: 1993
Director: Harold Ramis
Available: March 1
In the rich vein Edge of Tomorrow and Source Code, Groundhog Day stars Bill Murray as Phil Connors, a rude, unhappy man who, after spending the day covering the news of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania’s groundhog celebration, wakes up to relive the day once more. There’s little explanation as to why this happens, but Groundhog Day strips back all the mysteriousness and pretention of time travel as a concept to celebrate the hilariously mundane. It also helps that this film is a single-serve capsule of Bill Murray, America’s Greatest-of-All-Time Comic Sweetheart, at his very best. —Paste

Happy Valley

Year: 2015
Writer/Creator: Sally Wainwright
Available: March 16
We’re first introduced to the kind-hearted, but strong-willed Yorkshire police sergeant Cawood (played by Sarah Lancashire) when a love-sick loon decides to set himself on fire on the playgrounds of a local estate. While grandmas and neighbors panic, and drunken youth egg the desperate pyromaniac on, Cawood adopts a pretty lax approach. She decides to prepare for the worst case scenario by going to a supermarket first, to equip herself with chords to hold her sunglasses: “He can send himself to paradise—that’s his choice—but he’s not taking my eyebrows with him.” It’d be an understatement to say that she’s having a rough time of it at home, at work and even in her own mind, but this character’s brilliance and sheer perseverance makes the series an absolute must watch.—Roxanne Sancto

Heaven Knows What

Year: 2015
Director: Josh Safdie, Benny Safdie
Available: March 1
Harley (Arielle Holmes) is a young woman who’s as addicted to heroin as she is to her brutally apathetic boyfriend, Illya (Caleb Landry Jones). Aesthetically, the Safdies’ have made a picture of urgent, abrasive beauty. Cinematographer Sean Price Williams captures Holmes and her excellent supporting cast through a combination of tight close-ups and long shots that lend the film an air of removed intimacy. Ultimately, he’s almost as much the star of Heaven Knows What as Holmes, who matches up well with Jones, the film’s most notable professional actor. Cinema lets us engage with difficult subject matter through a veneer of security. But something like Heaven Knows What pierces that veil. By its very nature, it pushes the boundaries of our personal comfort. It’s clear we need more films like that. —Andy Crump

Finders Keepers

Year: 2015
Director: Bryan Carberry
Available: March 15
Finders Keepers can boast of having one of the better single-sentence synopses of recent memory, when it comes to documentaries: “After a man loses a leg in a plane crash and mummifies it himself, an errant storage locker sale deposits it into the hands of an entrepreneur who refuses to return the body part even after the leg’s original owner demands it back.” That’s the “meat” of Finders Keepers, if you will—a custody battle over a severed body part that really took place between leg-loser John Wood and leg-finder Shannon Whisnant in the years following 2007, when the discovery of the leg and resulting feud made national news. The resulting documentary is an absurd, rambling, he-said/he-said story that reveals two fascinating personalities residing in rural North Carolina. —Jim Vorel
