What’s New to Stream on Hulu for November 2019

‘Anna and the Apocalypse’ is one of our favorites around these parts, and now it can be one of yours too as it’s new to Hulu this month.
Hulu November
By  · Published on November 2nd, 2019

Hulu has been stuck in the third place position when it comes to movie streaming behind Netflix and Amazon Prime because most people still see them strictly as a home for next-day television. They have movies too, though, and more than a few of them are gems that make Hulu a destination beyond last night’s TV shows.

The complete list of new movies and shows hitting Hulu this month — November 2019 — is below, but I wanted to highlight the best of the bunch along with several others worth seeking out.

Hulu Pick of the Month

Anna and the Apocalypse (2018) premieres on November 13th after a long, joy-filled festival run and quiet home video release. If you’ve still managed to miss it I really can’t recommend it enough. It’s a new zom-com classic, and the fact that it’s also a Scottish musical just adds to its brilliance. Watch it loud with plenty of room to dance.

The Recently Beloved


I’m not nearly as enamored of The Nightingale (2019) as some thanks to its ridiculously over the top approach to depicting the horrors of rape and systematic abuse, but you can make up your mind as its playing now on Hulu. It seems destined to be as divisive a watch as Jennifer Kent’s first film, The Babadook (2014), albeit for far different reasons. Overlord (2018) landed on our 50 Best Horror Movies of the Decade list (as did Anna above) with good reason — it’s a fun, gory blast of a big-budget B-movie. Watch it! Booksmart (2019) arrives on November 18th, and while it’s unlike Overlord in every way it does share critical acclaim and an underwhelming box-office. It’s a sweetly fun tale of best friends, and unlike so many movies about unruly youth its focus on young women is a welcome change.

Disparate 70s Classics Made By Assholes

Hulu Chinatown

Roman Polanski may be a dick, but Chinatown (1974) remains a stone-cold masterpiece and one of the best noirs you’ve ever seen. Its beauty and devastation remain every bit as powerful even after multiple re-watches. Woody Allen may be a dick, but Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex, But Were Afraid to Ask (1972) is as entertaining as ever with its blend of wit and stupidity. The anthology format allows for all kinds of stories from Gene Wilder’s love affair with a sheep to Allen playing a sperm — seriously, it’s a memorable comedy.

Docs Are Good Brain Food

Hulu The Biggest Little Farm

The Biggest Little Farm (2019) opens its doors on November 6th and tells the story of a successful couple who leave the comforts of their life behind to take on the challenge of starting and running a farm. Challenge is probably an understatement as they face all manner of troubles in making their passion project come true, and the documentary captures all of the highs and lows. Mike Wallace Is Here (2019) will be here on November 28th and looks back at the legendary journalist’s fantastic career. The man was a hard-ass, for better and worse, and it’s all here to enjoy and marvel at.
