We’re still dealing with the fallout from yesterday’s big batch of new releases and we’ve got more new titles to cover today. Here’s what’s new on Netflix and what’s trending for June 2nd, 2021. 

If you’re looking to cut through all the new releases and just watch the best new titles, check out our movie recommendations for yesterday and also check out our updated list of our favorite movies on Netflix right now.

Now let’s get into some of the best new releases on Netflix for today:

2 Hearts (2020)

Genre: Drama, Romance
Director: Lance Hool
Cast: Radha Mitchell, Jacob Elordi, Kari Matchett, Adan Canto
Writer: Veronica Hool, Robin U. Russin
Runtime: 101 min

It’s fair to say that those that have watched 2 Hearts when it got a VOD premiere last year were less than impressed. However, that’s on a fairly small sample size so perhaps Netflixers will find something salvageable here.

Here’s what you can expect from 2 Hearts if you’ve yet to see it:

“In parallel love stories, the lives of college student Chris and wealthy businessman Jorge intersect in a profound twist of fate. Based on a true story.”

Kim’s Convenience (Season 5)

Genre: Comedy
Cast: Paul Sun-Hyung Lee, Jean Yoon, Andrea Bang, Simu Liu
Runtime: 22 min
Awards: 19 wins & 56 nominations.

The criminally overlooked Kim’s Convenience returns to Netflix today for its now final season.

Masterfully written, the genuinely funny sitcom follows a family running a convenience store in Canada.

Election (1999)

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Director: Alexander Payne
Cast: Matthew Broderick, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Klein, Jessica Campbell
Writer: Tom Perrotta (novel), Alexander Payne (screenplay), Jim Taylor (screenplay)
Runtime: 103 min

Perhaps one of the best movie additions to kick off the month so far is Election starring Reese Witherspoon.

The Oscar-nominated movie is a superb movie that holds up today. Here’s what you can expect if you missed the movie released over 2 decades ago.

“Tracy Flick appears to have the election for student council president sewn up until a teacher rounds up a worthy opponent: a popular football player.”
