14Y Movie and TV Show Recommendations


When you’re not visiting the Virtual 14Y, you’re likely watching plenty of movies and tv shows to pass the time. What comes next after Tiger King and Love is Blind? We’ve gathered a few 14Y staff recommendations to share with you!

The Good Place

Recommended by Cat Kenny, 14Y After School Program Manager

My current favorite show is The Good Place! It’s written by the same person who wrote The Office and Parks and Recreation. It’s super funny, has a really diverse cast, and deals with some really big philosophical questions in a hopeful and fun way!

Rating: PG-13
Where to watch: Netflix, Hulu, NBC, YouTube TV, Sling TV, fuboTV

Your Lie in April

Recommended by Gilbert Pagan, Sports and Recreation Coordinator

This is a story about the love of music, people and how it helps you rediscover your true passions. People can change your life even when you don’t expect it. I will warn you: this show is emotional. The music and dialogue will make you think about your own life and reflect. When it’s all over you will smile and always remember the melodies. Hopefully this show can bring joy and smiles to you, as it did for me and my wife.

Rating: PG-13
Where to watch: Netflix, Hulu

Cells at Work!

Recommended by Gilbert Pagan, Sports and Recreation Coordinator

Both educational and entertaining, this anime is about the human body. All of the characters are different functions of the body, and the two main protagonists are a white blood cell and a red blood cell.

Rating: PG-13
Where to watch: Netflix, Crunchyroll


Recommended by David Stallings, Director of Arts + Culture

Freud is a great mix of Victorian Gothic and historical fiction, imagining the great doctor as an almost Sherlock Holmes character.

Rating: R
Where to watch: Netflix


Recommended by Jonathan Rosario, Membership Assistant

Directed by renowned Japanese director Hirokazu Koreeda, this wonderful movie shows that family can be chosen and doesn’t necessarily have to be the people you are directly related to. Throughout the entirety of the film there are many powerful moments. Not all things are black and white, which you see as you watch the family struggle just to survive. After watching the film, you can’t help but feel like you were a part of the family.

Rating: R
Where to watch: Hulu or rent on YouTube, Google Play, Vudu, Amazon Prime Video
