Art and Experience:

From Western dramas to superhero comedies to nature documentaries, Netflix’s April slate is sure to have something of interest for every viewer.

The streamer is adding some classic horror films to its library, including the first installments of the “Insidious” and “Leprechaun” franchises. On the romance side, Reese Witherspoon’s “Legally Blonde” challenges gender stereotypes, while “The Time Traveler’s Wife” with Rachel McAdams explores the notion of eternal love. Additionally, Netflix is adding some Oscar-caliber films such as Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master” and Roman Polanski’s “The Pianist.”

Idris Elba and Caleb McLaughlin star in “Concrete Cowboy,” a Western drama about finding kinship in a tight-knit Philadelphia community of Black cowboys. “Thunder Force” is a comedy starring Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer as superpowers, while “Stowaway” follows a crew headed to Mars.

 

“The Serpent,” one of Netflix’s new limited series, tells the story of how conman and murderer Charles Sobhraj (Tahar Rahim) was eventually caught and imprisoned. Additionally, the four-part series “This Is a Robbery: The World’s Biggest Art Heist” takes a deep dive into an unsolved robbery during which a pair of thieves posing as policemen stole an estimated $500 million of artwork.
