This Month’s Highlights

Available March 1

Because it’s an animated classic: The Secret of N.I.M.H.

Don Bluth’s 1982 debut was a window into a world of animation free of Disney’s all-encompassing mass appeal, home to complicated and surprisingly dark storytelling. The story of displaced field mice who find themselves on a strange adventure when they meet rats with strange powers, N.I.M.H. is a gorgeous, sprawling fantasy in the vein of Jim Henson’s Labyrinth or The Dark Crystal, and totally worth revisiting on a rainy day. Available March 1.

Available March 31

For a moving documentary you may have missed: The Departure

The story of Ittetsu Nemoto, a Buddhist priest in Tokyo who counsels the suicidal and helps them find reasons to live, The Departure is a documentary that’s tender as it is heavy, a portrait of stunning altruism and sacrifice. Difficult to watch but extremely humane, it, like the best documentaries, delves into a subject you likely didn’t know was out there, but you’ll feel all the better for having a chance to learning its story. Available March 31.

Available March 1

For some seriously extra ‘90s nostalgia: Hackers

A cult classic that has only seen its reputation improve as it becomes more dated and kitschy, Hackers is one of those movies that is just so admirably extra you can’t help but respect it, regardless of whether you like it or not. The story of a bunch of high school hackers in the ‘90s — back when the internet was a curiosity, not a necessity — as they hack their way into and out of trouble, eventually angering a corporate magnate, sparking a terrorist threat, and getting tangled with the Secret Service. It’s also got vintage Angelina Jolie and peak Matthew Lillard. Watch it late at night and you won’t be disappointed. Available March 1.
