Greatest new exhibits and flicks on Netflix this week: Sprint & Lily, The Liberator
Looking for something new to watch on Netflix? You are in the right place. Here are the best new shows and movies to be released on Netflix the week of November 6-12, 2020.
It’s been a pretty easy week on old Flixter with twelve new titles, none of which seem like blockbusters. But YA’s dash & Lily rom-com series looks cute, adult animated war miniseries The Liberator looks cool, and the usual mix of international dishes, kids’ stuff, and random chances of winning looks pretty good. A quiet week, but a solid week.
All titles will debut on Friday November 6th unless otherwise noted. The following was posted on Netflix last week.
If you’re looking for even more hand-picked recommendations, we have plenty. If you want to see the best of what’s coming out on Netflix in November, here are our editors picks for Netflix’s November Releases and All That Comes on Service in the Month.
The greatest publications
Dash & Lily, Season 1
Ah, being young and beautiful at Christmas time in a fetishistically idealized New York City and doing an extensive commercial with someone you’ve never seen in real life about notes exchanged in a secret notebook in the beach bookstore. This could go very wrong. But by the end of the trailer, Dash (Austin Abrams) and Lily (Midori Francis) have it already worked out. This romantic comedy is based on a series of books for young adults called Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares. 14 year olds who watch this will decide whether to study at NYU. (Tuesday, November 10th)
This four-part animated limited series from WWII will be released on Veteran’s Day. The most remarkable thing about The Liberator is the animation technique, a new technology called “Enhanced Hybrid Animation”, a combination of CGI and live action similar to rotoscoping. Bradley James plays Felix Sparks, an army officer who plays by his own rules as he leads his men in a 500-day campaign to liberate Europe. It looks like it’s epic on a scale that wouldn’t be possible in a live action series without spending more than a hundred million dollars. (Trailer / Wednesday, November 11th)

What we wanted
If you’re in the mood for some serious, depressing German indie drama about a marriage falling apart due to fertility issues this week, Netflix has you covered. (Trailer / Wednesday, November 11th)
This stylized and irreverent Indian crime comedy looks really funny! Like Bollywood Tarantino. It’s four overlapping capers with murder, chaos, and an exceptionally eccentric criminal. (Trailer / Thursday, November 12th)
