This week on Netflix: here are the best movies/TV shows to watch this weekend “March 9” to keep yourself busy

This weekend brings to you the ups and downs and of course, the tears and laughter in Netflix's newest movies and TV releases, which comes with a mix of heartfelt drama with some comedy thrown in.

On one hand is Alfre Woodard-led comedy-drama film named Juanita and on the other hand is Ricky Gervais series which is known to be After Life. Lastly comes a true story-based movie, known to be called Walk. Ride. Rodeo.

Digging in to last week's Netflix movie, arose another big film based on a true story. The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, which marks the feature directorial debut of actor Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Meanwhile, there are other Netflix movies that will still arrive this month which includes the new episodes of Arrested Development season 5, Idris Elba-led series Turn Up Charlie, and the highly-anticipated second season of sci-fi drama known to be The OA.

There's definitely a busy spring ahead for the streaming platform, but for those looking for something to watch this weekend, here comes the best new Netflix Original releases for the weekend starting March 9.


Alfre Woodard, who memorably played Luke Cage villain Black Mariah, has taken the lead in Netflix Original film Juanita. However the movie is directed by Clark Johnson. Woodard plays the titular character, a mother of grown kids who is exhausted of seeing to their needs, and made up her mind to take a road trip to Montana that's all about being with herself. Along the way she trades in her imagination of spending a romantic evening with Blair Underwood for the real thing (real romance, not the real Blair Underwood) when she meets diner chef Jess “played by Suicide Squad's Adam Beach”. Juanita is a movie for anyone who needs a little time to themselves, and perhaps needs inspiration to go on an adventure.


Ricky Gervais, co-creator and star of The Office and Extras, returns on a little more somber note in Netflix Original series known to be After Life. Gervais plays Tony, a man for whom everything turns out to be going pretty well until his wife, Lisa (Kerry Godliman), dies of cancer. In true P.S. I Love You form, Lisa recorded a series of videos before she passed away, with the purpose of helping Tony move on with his life. Tony however, chooses to tackle his grief by deciding he will say and do whatever he wants, without knowing how other people related to him feels, and gives him a kind of joy in lashing out at anyone who annoys him. Comprised of six half-hour episodes, After Life has been praised by many reviewers for its blend of humor and tragedy. So if you're looking for a movie to lock yourself indoor this weekend, try checking out this movie.


Netflix Original film Walk. Ride. Rodeo. is the heartwarming true story of Amberley Snyder, an 18 year-old barrel racer who encounter with a car accident on her way to rodeo glory and thus, she was paralyzed from the waist down as an outcome of the accident. Regardless of experiencing such a devastating loss at such a tender age, Amberley (played by Spencer Locke) gets back on the horse - literally. Four months after the accident, following physical therapy to build her upper body strength and learn to balance again, the young rider got back into the saddle with the aim of eventually competing again. The road to recovery is long and often difficult, but Walk. Ride. Rodeo. is all about the power of determination and having faith. The movie however features the real Amberley Snyder as a stunt double for Locke, performing the barrel racing scenes.
