The end of the month is always a bit slow when it comes to Netflix releases, but even slow weeks on Netflix give us something worthwhile to watch. This week, we’re getting a movie called The Dig, which is a period piece set around World War II starring Carey Mulligan, Ralph Fiennes, and Lily James. We might not be getting many blockbuster movies in theaters lately, but streaming services are doing their best to pick up the slack.

Here is the complete list of the Netflix streaming arrivals and departures for the week of January 24th, 2021:

  • We Are: The Brooklyn Saints — NETFLIX DOCUMENTARY
    • From Emmy-award winning filmmaker Rudy Valdez (The Sentence), Imagine Documentaries, and Disarming Films comes We Are: The Brooklyn Saints, a four-part documentary series following a youth football program in the heart of inner city East NY, Brooklyn. Geared towards boys 7-13 years old, the Brooklyn Saints program is more than a sport – it’s a family, and a vehicle for opportunity. Through intimate verité footage, the series immerses us in the world of Brooklyn Saints football and their community, chronicling the personal stories of the driven young athletes, as well as the support system and challenges of coaches and parents rallying behind them. Over the course of a season, we witness the Saints’ power on and off the field, as they celebrate victories and overcome losses, both personal and athletic. Raw and authentic, the pressures of adolescence unfolds in real time as the boys work to propel themselves to a brighter future.
