The streaming platform is perfect as it has the ultimate variety of films that one can watch with family and friends - from horror and crime to comedy, romance and musicals. 

So here are some of those movies you will find on Netflix which might not yet fall under classics but just might in the next 10 - 20 years. 


The musical follows a dance-loving teenager, Tracy Turnbland in the 1960s in the town, Baltimore. She auditions for a spot on "The Corny Collins Show" and wins. But before all that happens she goes through struggles as she wishes for the show to be accessible to black dancers as well in a time where they had to be separate. 

She becomes an overnight celebrity, a trendsetter in dance, fun and fashion. Perhaps her new status as a teen sensation is enough to topple Corny's reigning dance queen and bring racial integration to the show.

If you're into musicals, it's perfect.
