Here’s Everything New On Netflix This Week, Including ‘Gentefied’ And An Anne Hathaway Movie

Netflix continues the month of love with a new romantic dramedy series and a film starring Oscar winner Anne Hathaway as a woman who’s sense of duty to her dad entangles her in a sea of intrigue. First up is Gentefied, a half hour series that explores brown love and family in a rapidly changing Los Angeles. If you’re not feeling saucy interactions between badass cousins, The Last Thing He Wanted will take you through the Iran-Contra affair in a taut political thriller. Also, Ben Affleck shows up, and not in a Bat costume, so that’s always a good start.

Here’s everything coming to (and leaving) Netflix this week of February 21.

Gentefied (Netflix series streaming 2/21)

Based off of the 2017 Sundance audience favorite, Gentefied is a bilingual series about brown love, family, and community set as three cousins attempt to chase the American Dream with their grandfather in tow. But their rapidly changing LA neighborhood has different plans that threatens everything from their livelihoods to their very identities. The dramedy will also tackle insta-fame and the struggles particular to their Los Angeles neighborhood.

The Last Thing He Wanted (Netflix film streaming 2/21)

Set during the Iran-Contra scandal, The Last Thing He Wanted is an adaptation of the Joan Didion novel that stars Anne Hathaway as a Washington D.C. journalist who finds herself ensnared in a web of intrigue after her father asks for favor. Thinking she can leverage dad’s offer into an expose, Hathaway’s character finds herself smack in the middle of her own investigation. The political thriller is directed by Dee Rees who turned heads with Mudbound, and it also stars Ben Affleck, Academy Award nominee Rosie Perez, Edi Gathegi, Mel Rodriguez, Onata Aprile and Toby Jones.
