There's plenty to be thankful for this week, and as people celebrate a socially-distanced and virtual Thanksgiving, Netflix is adding to that list. This week, the streaming giant will be adding 18 new titles to its streaming library, giving families something to bond over and giving subscribers something to relax to after stuffing themselves full of turkey and other items on the Thanksgiving Day feast.
The 18 titles began showing up in the streaming giant on Monday and are set to continue throughout the week, leading to many more that will be added this weekend as the streamer prepares to close out the month. Of the new additions 16 are Netflix original series, films, and specials, including the additions of Hillbilly Elegy and Season 2 of Virgin River. Several of the latest titles, including The Christmas Chronicles: Part 2, are part of the streamer's growing list of holiday titles. That full holiday streaming lineup can be found by clicking here. More titles are set to be added to the list throughout December.

After getting slammed with a 26% Tomatometer rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, fans will finally get to have their say on the Amy Adams and Glenn Close-starring film Hillbilly Elegy. Based on J.D. Vance's bestselling memoir, the film is told form the perspective of a Yale Law student who is drawn back to his Appalachian roots, where he reflects on his family's history and his own future. The film has made plenty of headlines ahead of its Netflix debut on Tuesday, with Vulture declaring that Adams "can't win her Oscar this way," and WXVU dubbing it a "disappointing comic book version" of Vance's best-selling memoir. Fans, however, will finally have the chance to weigh in on the discussion with their own opinion.prevnext
