- Before Midnight
If you look a little harder, you’ll find interesting and engaging rom-com on Netflix than Hollywood. Before Midnight is the third movie in a trilogy that began with 1995’s Before Sunrise and further continued with 2004’s Before Sunset. It revisits the same couple—Jesse and Céline, played by Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy. The movies work best in tandem, and each one holds its own self-contained narrative with this one being the strongest of all. Go watch it if you haven’t already.

Starring Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis as Lainey and Jake, the movie features two teens that lost their virginities to each other during a one-night stand in college. A decade later, they bump into each other in New York and decide to renew their friendship. It effectively captures the male-female friendship between two independent people. Neither of them is hung up on the fact that they hooked up back in college. Sounds interesting!

This one is based on the first of a four-book YA series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. It tells you the story of two South Carolina teens: Ethan played by Alden Ehrenreich who falls for the enigmatic Lena Duchannes played by Alice Englert, who turns out to be the scion of a family of witches.
