The author has recently updated her list by checking Netflix’s lists of upcoming and soon-to-be-removed movies for June, so all the movies on her list should be around for at least the next month, if not longer.
Below is a partial list. See her article Watch these LDS Movies on Netflix Tonight! for the full list.
MEET THE MORMONS (PG)
Meet the Mormons examines the diverse lives of six devout members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints found around the world including the U.S., Nepal, and Costa Rica.
17 MIRACLES (PG)
Grab the tissues because this movie will probably make you cry. A mix of true experiences from the Mormon Pioneers crossing the plains (Martin and Willie handcart companies).
JOSEPH SMITH: PROPHET OF THE RESTORATION (NR)
This movie doesn’t flow like other movies, rather it’s a combination of all the events of the restoration. My kids were shocked when they saw the scenes with the tar and feathering and other persecutions. It was good for them to learn about how much the early saints had to suffer through and why they chose to do so (especially Joseph Smith). However, it is something to be aware of so you can talk about it together.
SARATOV APPROACH (PG-13)
A true story of 2 LDS missionaries kidnapped and beaten while serving in Russia. It really shows how you can still have faith and hope in the face of such a great trial. It might make you cry as well. This movie is not ideal for young children because it is such a serious and intense movie.
SAINTS AND SOLDIERS: THE VOID (PG-13)
The newest Saints and Soldiers movie is available for streaming on Netflix. Jesse Owens struggles with racial prejudice among his own team as he tries to help them all survive. Takes place at the end of World War II.
SAINTS AND SOLDIERS:AIRBORNE CREED (PG-13)
A group of American paratroopers risk their lives after landing in enemy territory to save a group of French resistance fighters. Takes place during World War II. Keep in mind these are war movies so there will be shooting and blood.
SAINTS AND SOLDIERS (PG-13)
The first of the Saints and Soldiers movies- all based on real events during war. This one is about a small band of Allied soldiers trying to survive behind enemy lines. One of them is a U.S. soldier that had previously served as a missionary in the same area. During the movie they are trying to get information back to their supervisors so they can save thousands of lives.
FOREVER STRONG (PG-13)
The star rugby player is sent to a reformatory for a DUI. While he is serving his sentence, a tough rival coach allows him to play for his team. This movie is said to show the importance of good values and making champions out of each player not just a champion team.
A Netflix original. See behind the scenes during Mitt Romney’s two presidential campaign runs. Gives insight into what it really takes to go into politics.
