WeWork: Or the Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn - April 2nd

Filmmaker Jed Rothstein explores the unprecedented rise and tumultuous fall of WeWork, a real estate company that sought to upend the paradigm of the workspace. As led by its brash, and almost-cultish, co-founder and ex-CEO Adam Neumann, WeWork bit off more than it could chew. Its crash following the company seeking its public IPO was almost inevitable. After being forced out, Neumann consequently was said to have thought of himself as "a martyr." All of this is ripe, of course, for a Hollywood treatment, which is exactly what's happening next.

Songbird - April 16

The pandemic seeped into all aspects of our lives. "Songbird," which was shot during the summer lockdowns in L.A., was one of the first movies to lean heavily on its COVID influence. And the sci-fi thriller paints a grim future. By 2024, COVID-19 has morphed into COVID-23. Some people have immunity, but those unfortunate souls who don't are sent to quarantine camps. Lord only knows what fate befalls them. "Songbird" is certainly drawing just as much influence from Trump's America as the pandemic. While the thriller felt a bit "too soon" last winter when it launched on PVOD, by now we can all breathe a sigh of relief. As bad as things are, at least the pandemic hasn't become that bad.

Wild Mountain Thyme - April 25th

British actress Emily Blunt dons her best Irish accent with Irish actor Jamie Dornan in this comedy in which star-crossed lovers get caught up in a land dispute. Farmer Rosemary (Blunt) hopes to win the heart of her oblivious neighbor Anthony (Dornan). But Anthony has problems of his own. His family is looking to sell their farm to an American nephew. Maybe through it all the two will finally see eye-to-eye and heart-to-heart.

Hulu has your nostalgia fix all April long if you're looking to watch some classics. Lovers of Westerns can take in a few gems of the genre. You can catch Paul Newman and Robert Redford as the witty and adventurous "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." The film's iconic rain-themed song we just recently included in our movie songs playlist. Also streaming is John Ford's classic James Stewart shoot-em-up "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance." If you're looking for more modern gunslingers, then you can find some action fun with Bruce Willis and his hard-nosed detective John McClane in "Die Hard" and the later follow up "Die Hard With a Vengeance."

If you're looking to watch something more indie, Hulu has a few recent indie movies making their streaming debut. On 4/4 you can catch Bella Thorne in the grindhouse thriller "Girl." On 4/16 look for the inspiring doc "Fly Like a Girl," which follows a group of real women who followed their aviation dreams to space. It's sort of the real-life Captain Marvels.
