Netflix's Choices for June Are Meant to Help Us Start Using Our Brains Again

Netflix is challenging us this June. They know that we've been succumbing to reality TV binges and opting to rewatch our comfort shows during quarantine, but no more! Next month, they're bringing us programming meant to spark a little something in us. But don't worry -- where there's a deep movie or fascinating documentary, there's also something to soften the blow. The Oscar-nominated "Lady Bird" will connect with us a little more emotionally than, say, "Clueless," also on the roster. "Athlete A" will bring us to the beginning of the U.S. gymnastics sexual abuse scandal, which you can follow up with a fresh season of "Queer Eye." Spike Lee releases a film about war veterans and treasure hunts, while Penélope Cruz and Ana de Armas team up for a based-on-a-true-story Cuban spy movie -- which you can follow up with a George Lopez special for some comic relief.
