Things are getting romantic over at Amazon Prime Video in February. The streaming service has curated a selection of romantic movies available on the platform, everything from recent Amazon Original films — including the period romance Sylvie’s Love and road-trip drama Uncle Frank — to achingly romantic TV series — including Amazon Originals Fleabag, Catastrophe, and Modern Love — and plenty in between (like Lost In Translation, Moulin Rouge, The Big Sick, The Handmaiden, Just Wright, and What Men Want).

New film releases this month include Owen Wilson and Salma Hayek in the romantic thriller Bliss, and Big Little Lies and Freaky star Kathryn Newton in a time loop romance for teens, The Map of Tiny Perfect Things. On the TV side, the new original thriller Tell Me Your Secrets, starring Lily Rabe, Hamish Linklater, and Amy Brenneman as a trio of people with mysterious and troubling pasts, debuts this month, and the LeBron James–produced docuseries about high school basketball stars, Top Class: The Life and Times of the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers, streams on IMDb TV.

Keep reading to find out what else is new on Amazon Prime Video in February, with some highlights noted at the top.



Bliss (2021)

27%

Description: This mind-bending love story following Greg (Owen Wilson) who, after recently being divorced and then fired, meets the mysterious Isabel (Salma Hayek), a woman living on the streets and convinced that the polluted, broken world around them is just a computer simulation. Doubtful at first, Greg eventually discovers there may be some truth to Isabel’s wild conspiracy.

Premiere Date: February 5, 2021



Description: Quick-witted teen Mark (Kyle Allen) is contentedly living the same day in an endless loop, but his world is turned upside-down when he meets mysterious Margaret (Kathryn Newton) — also stuck in the time loop. Mark and Margaret form a magnetic partnership, setting out to find all the tiny things that make that one day perfect. What follows is a love story with a fantastical twist, as the two struggle to figure out how – and whether – to escape their never-ending day.

Premiere Date: February 12, 2021



Sonic the Hedgehog (2020)

63%

Description: The world needed a hero — it got a hedgehog. Powered with incredible speed, Sonic embraces his new home on Earth — until he accidentally knocks out the power grid, sparking the attention of uncool evil genius Dr. Robotnik. Now, it’s supervillain vs. supersonic in an all-out race across the globe to stop Robotnik from using Sonic’s unique power to achieve world domination.

Critics Consensus: Fittingly fleet and frequently fun, Sonic the Hedgehog is a video game-inspired adventure the whole family can enjoy — and a fine excuse for Jim Carrey to tap into the manic energy that launched his career.

Premiere Date: February 18, 2021



Description: This intense, morally complex thriller revolves around a trio of characters, each with a mysterious and troubling past: Emma (Lily Rabe) is a young woman who once looked into the eyes of a dangerous killer; John (Hamish Linklater) is a former serial predator desperate to find redemption; and Mary (Amy Brenneman) is a grieving mother obsessed with finding her missing daughter, Theresa (Stella Baker). As each of them is pushed to the edge, the truth about their pasts and motives grows ever murkier, blurring the lines between victim and perpetrator.

Premiere Date: February 19, 2021



The Informer (2020)

62%

Description: Pete Koslow is a former special operations soldier working as an informant for the FBI to help dismantle the Polish mafia’s drug trade in New York. But when the FBI’s operation goes wrong, resulting in the death of an undercover NYPD cop, Pete is coerced into returning to Bale Hill, the prison he previously served time in for manslaughter, to take down the cartel from the inside.

Critics Consensus: The Informer may prove a passable diversion for less demanding thriller fans, but most of its ingredients have been recycled from superior entries in the genre.

Premiere Date: February 26, 2021
