This month is no different, with fresh movies and old classics galore.
Whether it’s their own selection of original films, including Moxie and Yes Day, or some throwback hits like Dirty Dancing, there is definitely a film for everyone.
We’re rounded up the best films arriving on the streaming service in March.

With this, Vivian unexpectedly sparks a movement and finds herself at the centre of a revolution.

After getting attacked on the street, Casey (Jesse Eisenberg) enlists in a local dojo, led by a mysterious sensei, in a bid to learn how to defend himself.
