Netflix: 2023 Fall Movie Slate

Courtesy of Netflix.

Netflix has a new number of new movies for everyone their 2023 Fall Movie Slate, whether its documentary, comedy, drama, or animation.

Having seen The Saint of Second Chances during Tribeca this past summer, it’s a baseball documentary that I highly recommend. Co-directors Morgan Neville and Jeff Malmberg really hit it out of the ballpark as audiences get an inside look at the Veeck baseball family. Jeff Daniels narrates the film while Charlie Day portrays Mike Veeck in recreations of his earlier days in baseball. There have been a decent number of baseball documentaries this year but this one is a redemption story.

If you couldn’t get enough of the Sandler family in last weekend’s You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah, make sure to put Leo on your radar. This animated film also features the Sandler family–no, I have not seen it but with that cast, it must be good.

The streaming service acquired Fair Play out of Sundance earlier this year. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make the world premiere screening nor any of the subsequent screenings on the ground in January.

May December has received a considerable amount of buzz since its premiere at Cannes. The film will have its North American premiere as the Opening Night selection of the New York Film Festival this fall. White Noise did the same thing last year but didn’t make any noise during last year’s awards season so we’ll see if this year will be any different for the Todd Haynes film starring a pair of Oscar winners, Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore.
