If you’re a Max subscriber, March is about to become a binge-worthy month. Over the coming weeks, you can expect a plethora of new titles to join the streaming platform, including four stand-out films we think you should start with. 

The four movies we’ve picked out for this month on Max all have scores above 90% on Rotten Tomatoes, with A24 hidden gems taking two of the spots. There’s also an Oscar-nominated biography from Danny Boyle, and a Michael B. Jordan drama for you to add to your watch list. 

Good Time (2017)

RT score: 91%
Directors: Benny Safdie & Josh Safdie
Runtime: 101 minutes
Age rating: R
Available to stream from: March 1

Robert Pattinson makes a hell of a scumbag in this feature from the  Safdie brothers. The first of two A24 movies in our list, after a bank robbery goes terribly wrong and lands his brother in jail, Connie (Pattinson) is determined to free him from custody while avoiding his own arrest. He sets out on a night voyage through New York City’s most threatening criminal areas to make his brother’s bail, taking desperate measures to ensure he is freed. Renowned for his writing and directing skills, Benny Safdie steps into the supporting actor role as Connie’s brother (which has turned him into a seriously popular character actor), with Jennifer Jason Leigh also adding heart to the movie.

The Farewell (2019)

RT score: 97%
Director: Lulu Wang

The Farewell is a comedy-drama and the second A24 movie in our list.

To shield their grandmother from the severity of her illness, the family organize a fake wedding as a final farewell, but this doesn’t sit right with Billi, who struggles to keep the secret from her grandmother.
