A Christian girl who preaches abstinence, when Dawn is assaulted she discovers that she actually has something that can be used as a weapon against the men who would hurt her.

6. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
Gary Oldman stars in this 2011 thriller about a semi-retired spy who has to put his skills to use to find a secret agent in MI6 during the days of the Cold War.

Another family film leaving the streaming service this month is Disney’s Moana, the animated feature film about a young Polynesian girl who sets off across the ocean to try and find the Demigod Maui to save her island home. Expect all the usual Disney goodness, with great songs and inspiring lessons for children and adults alike.
Leaving: Dec 20
4. Food, Inc
This well-known 2008 documentary takes a hard look at American industrial farming and the food industry, including meat production and mass-produced grains, as well as the financial benefits to major food corporations. This is a fascinating look at how food gets to our tables (with a distinct pro-vegan message, but one that doesn’t overwhelm the film as a whole), although maybe it’s a good thing it won’t be around to watch before Christmas dinner!

This true story is definitely not one for those looking for a little lighthearted Christmas fare before the end of the month. Spotlight delves into the story of how the Boston Globe was instrumental in uncovering the scandal of child molestation within the Catholic Church, and it doesn’t shy away from the painful parts. With a star-studded cast and two Oscars under its belt, Spotlight is definitely one to watch before it leaves Netflix.
Leaving: Dec 22
2. Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl
Disney pulls another film from Netflix this month, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl. The first film in this wildly successful pirate franchise, Curse of the Black Pearl isn’t the only film in the franchise on Netflix - and it looks like both At World’s End and Dead Men Tell No Tales will remain available past this month… although of course, that’s only helpful if you’ve already seen the first two!
Leaving: Dec 25
Finally, bid farewell to Troy, just before the arrival of 2019. The epic story of the Trojan War, Troy is packed with familiar faces, including Orlando Bloom, Brad Pitt, and Eric Bana. Be warned, though… while this Oscar-nominated film is absolutely worth the watch, it’s not a short one… at almost three hours long, you definitely need to set aside a serious chunk of time for this film!
Leaving: Dec 31
