If your Netflix list is already overflowing due to this month’s additions to the service, you’re not alone. December has been phenomenal for movies and shows on the world’s most popular streaming platform, and there’s no sign of it slowing down. As a matter of fact, today’s selection includes five brand new films, and a few of them may be right up your alley.
The biggest release of the day is the Netflix Original The Prom, which features notable names like Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Keegan-Michael Key and James Corden. It tells the tale of a young lesbian girl who’s being discriminated against in her small town high school and a group of Broadway stars with a failing public image who are looking to capitalize on the opportunity to exploit her story. But they soon learn a lesson about self-absorption and come together to shine a light on LGBT acceptance, activism and personal growth.
The Prom currently holds a 76% on Rotten Tomatoes, and though a few have criticized the film for being emotionally exploitative, most have praised director Ryan Murphy’s goal of bringing inclusivity to Hollywood. If you’re up for a glam-filled romp full of equal parts silliness and tips for self-love, you might enjoy this one.

Suffice it to say, there are still a few big titles to look forward to before 2020 wraps up.
