Staff Picks

This weekend, kick back and relax with one of these great streaming options, hand-picked by our staff. Whether you’re in the mood for a laugh-out-loud comedy or a heart-wrenching drama, we’ve got you covered.

In “The Big Sick,” Kumail Nanjiani stars as a Pakistani comedian who falls in love with a white woman, played by Zoe Kazan. The film is based on Nanjiani’s own real-life courtship, and at times, it is laugh-out-loud funny. But it also deals with some serious themes, like racism and illness, in a thoughtful and moving way.

If you’re in the mood for something lighter, try “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” a charming teen romance based on the best-selling book of the same name. Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) seems to have it all figured out until her secret love letters are mysteriously mailed to her former crushes. Suddenly, her seemingly perfect world is turned upside down.

For something completely different, check out “Dirty Dancing.” The classic film follows Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) as she falls in love with Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze), a charismatic dancer at the resort where her family is vacationing. The movie is packed with memorable dance scenes set to an iconic soundtrack.
