Pieces of a Woman – Picture: Netflix

We’re just a few days from the weekend and Netflix is continuing with its trickle of new titles with three new movies added to Netflix today.

There’s still a few big titles to look out for tomorrow and through the weekend including Inside the World’s Toughest Prisons which arrives tomorrow for the fifth season. Over the weekend, we’ll see Spring Breakers hit on Sunday.

Now let’s get into what’s new for today:

Pieces of a Woman (2020)

Genre: Drama
Director: Kornél Mundruczó
Cast: Vanessa Kirby, Shia LaBeouf, Ellen Burstyn, Iliza Shlesinger
Writer: Kata Wéber
Runtime: 126 min

The first major Netflix Original movie of the year arrives on Netflix today and is a pickup from the 77th Venice Film Festival where it received rave reviews from critics.

The movie is the story of a woman who loses her baby under cruel and neglectful circumstances and follows her journey at hopefully getting justice.

Pieces of a Woman is not an easy watch so be warned.

While we have seen the movie pop up within Netflix a few times, don’t expect Netflix to go above and beyond to promote this movie with controversy shrouding one of its lead roles.

Leap! (2017)

Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy, Family, Music
Director: Eric Summer, Éric Warin, Mimi Maynard, Paulette Victor-Lifton
Cast: Elle Fanning, Dane DeHaan, Carly Rae Jepsen, Maddie Ziegler
Runtime: 89 min

If you’re looking at this title and thinking you recognize it, the chances are you were a Netflix subscriber last year when the movie did stream for a period of time. It was, however, removed and returns to Netflix today.

The animated feature is known as Ballerina in the majority of regions around the world but Leap! in the United States.

Set in the 1800s, we follow a girl who flees to Paris where she becomes a pupil of the Grand Opera house.
