The Most Notable Movie Coming To Netflix This Week

“Wine Country” | May 10

Premise: A group of longtime friends vacations in Napa Valley to celebrate a 50th birthday. These female friends have grown apart over the years and, after a few glasses of wine, the friendships start to splinter amid the beautiful backdrop of the vineyards.

Sum-Up: Critics haven’t reviewed this yet. As mentioned, Amy Poehler makes her directorial debut with this movie, but she also stars in “Wine Country,” helped develop the story and ultimately co-produced the film. Suffice it to say, this should appeal to Poehler fans. The cast includes multiple “Saturday Night Live” alums who certainly have the experience to carry a movie centered on hijinks.

Heads-Up: Netflix continues its recent habit of barring critics from reviewing its movies in the lead-up to the debut, so you’ll likely have to wait until the May 10 premiere to know whether this is worth your time.
