New on Hulu: All the Movies and TV Coming in April

Coming up in April, we’ve got a series of new TV shows and movies coming to Hulu. Check out our featured recommendations, and read on for the full list of new content. Note that titles with an * are only available with a subscription to the Showtime premium add-on.


Lars and the Real Girl

Year: 2007
Director: Craig Gillespie
Available: April 1
Lars and the Real Girl’s premise should have been cringe-worthy: Ryan Gosling dates a life-size sex doll, and the entire town goes to great lengths to protect the fairy tale. But Nancy Oliver’s Oscar-nominated script is so gentle, and so melancholic, that it becomes a quietly powerful story of a stunted man who finally comes of age. Darkly funny but sweet-natured, Lars is a small treasure.—Paste

Donnie Brasco

Year: 1997
Writer/Creator: Mike Newell
Available: April 1
Donnie Brasco innovates the gangster movie, mishmashing it with the undercover cop movie and focusing on a less famous crime family, the Bonannos, one of the mafia’s Five Families of New York City in the 1970s. In the lead role, Johnny Depp delivers a prevailing performance, hashing out a moral dilemma as the undercover Donnie Brasco —David Roark

The Whistleblower

Year: 2010
Director: Larysa Kondracki
Available: April 15
The Whistleblower skirts the line between political thriller, conspiracy picture and melodrama, but it does it well, building the right amount of tension and intrigue as it gallops along. The setting is Bosnia in the late ’90s, but the corruption and abuse that the film details is entirely applicable to today’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Starring Rachel Weisz as a U.N. peacekeeper, the film hits the right notes at the right times in a style more reminiscent of 1970s political conspiracy thrillers like Three Days of the Condor. This is very much a product of paranoid and distrustful times. —Jonah Flicker

Brighton Rock

Year: 2010
Director: Rowan Joffé
Available: April 1
Brighton Rock is a slow-burning dramatic thriller. Taken from Graham Greene’s classic 1938 novel of the same name, the film is set on the shores of 1960s Brighton, a picturesque British seaside town with a pier as iconic as the large sticks of rock candy sold to tourists there. But this is not a story about gangsters or love—it’s about Pinky, a twisted young villain with no way out. Together with veteran cinematographer John Mathieson (X-Men: First Class, Gladiator), Joffe makes this film absolutely sing with its stunning shots, angles and carefully orchestrated vignettes.—Maryann Koopman Kelly
