Ready to plan your viewing? Here are the five best movies new to Hulu this month.

'Perfect Days' (2023)

Wim Wenders' 2023 drama earned a nomination for Best International Feature Film at the 2024 Oscars, and it's easy to see why. This quietly captivating feature follows Hirayam (Koji Yakusho), a Tokyo-based cleaner who sets out every day to maintain the city's public toilets. That might not sound like a must-watch flick, but "Perfect Days" is a simple, life-affirming feature that finds joy in the rhythm and pleasures of Hirayama's life and the beauty of the everyday. It's a slow cinema treat, and one you shouldn't miss.

'The Duke' (2022)

Roger Michell's delightful British comedy is, remarkably, based on a true story. It takes us back in time to 1961 and introduces us to 60-year-old retired bus driver, Kempton Bunton (Jim Broadbent), the man who successfully swiped Goya's priceless portrait of the Duke of Wellington from London's National Gallery. It remains the first and only theft in the gallery's history. Kempton subsequently offered to return to the painting in exchange for charitable investment in the country's elderly. It's a moving, charming watch, that earned 5-star reviews upon its release.

'It Follows' (2014)

David Robert Mitchell's "It Follows" is a modern horror cult hit. The movie revolves around Jay Height (Maika Monroe), a college student who finds herself being terrorized by a mysterious supernatural being who can take the form of anyone after a sexual encounter with her boyfriend.

The entity is slow but relentless. If it reaches her, the entity will kill her before going after the person that passes it to her, and the person before that. It's a tense watch, one which was lauded for its originality and its scares on release.

'A Love Song' (2022)

Max Walker-Silverman's debut feature is a small-scale, tender story. The movie takes us to a campsite in rural Colorado, where widow Faye (Dale Dickey) is currently set up and waiting for the arrival of Lito (Wes Studi), a former companion.

She doesn't know when he'll turn up, or what he even looks like now, as it's been a long time since she crossed paths with her former flame. It's a low-key story about two potential lovers who've been apart for so long. Anchored by top performances , this is a warm, well-made and moving character study.

Genre: Drama/Romance
