New to Netflix

Over winter break, my family and I explored the extensive selection of new Netflix movies and TV shows. Below, you will find a few of my favorite movies and shows that have recently been added to Netflix. These picks range from lifestyle shows to romantic stories to thriller films. I provided a short description of each movie below. I encourage you to explore these Netflix selections and share them with friends and family!

Two thousand years ago, Marcus Antonius gave Cleopatra three bejeweled eggs as a wedding gift. Special Agent John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson) tracks down international art thief Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds), who possesses Cleopatra’s first egg. The unlikely pair works together to catch the world’s most wanted criminal known as “The Bishop” (Gal Gadot) and locate the remaining two eggs.
