Streaming is taking over. From Netflix to Hulu to Apple TV, there's never a shortage of things to watch, with each streaming service adding more options all the time. The month of February brings original content like Zoë Kravitz's new show High Fidelity and Netflix's To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, as well as awards season-nominated films like Honey Boy and The Farewell (so if you wanted to see them but hadn't yet rented them or headed to a theater near you, you soon can do so on Amazon Prime Video). Sophia Lillis brings her talents to lead Netflix's I Am Not Okay With This towards the end of the month, while Anne Hathaway fans have a new drama to experience when The Last Thing He Wanted comes out on February 21. There are so many exciting movies and TV shows streaming in February 2020 that it can be hard to decide which to watch first, so we narrowed it down to some of the best. Here are 15 things to stream this month.

Horse Girl (2020)

The horse girl has hit a dramatic new level. Out on Netflix on February 7, a socially awkward arts and crafts store employee (Alison Brie) loves all things horses and the supernatural. Things get strange when her lucid dreams begin to infiltrate her real life.

To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You (2020)

We know you loved 2018's To All the Boys I've Loved Before, which was one of the most talked-about rom-coms to hit Netflix that year, so get ready for the sequel. As Lara Jean's (Lana Condor) relationship with Peter (Noah Centineo) continues to blossom, she reunites with another recipient of one of her old love letters and things get complicated. The new movie is available to stream on Netflix on February 12.

Love Is Blind (2020)

In this new dating show that takes place over three weeks, Vanessa and Nick Lachey host a social experiment in which single women and men look for love and get engaged, all before finally meeting in person. Available on Netflix on February 13. 

The Last Thing He Wanted (2020)

In Dee Rees' latest film, which is adapted from Joan Didion's novel, a veteran Washington D.C. journalist (Anne Hathaway) finds herself involved in a story she's trying to break when she helps her father broker an arms deal. Also starring Ben Affleck, Willem Dafoe, and Rosie Perez, it comes out on Netflix on February 21.

I Am Not Okay With This (2020)

In this eight-episode series, Sophia Lillis plays Sydney, a teenage girl navigating the ups and downs of high school while also dealing with her family, her sexuality, and her secret superpowers. Stream the new show on Netflix starting on February 26.

All the Bright Places (2020)

Based on the novel of the same name by Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places is about two teenagers (Elle Fanning and Justice Smith) who emotionally struggle with their past once they meet each other. It's a sweet and unlikely love story between popular girl Violet (Fanning) and social outcast Theodore (Smith). The film comes out on Netflix on February 28.

Where’d You Go, Bernadette (2019)

Based on the book, Cate Blanchett plays Bernadette Fox, a former architect who suddenly disappears. Her family then goes on an adventure to find her that takes many twists and turns. After an initial theatrical release, you can stream the movie on Hulu on February 12.

High Fidelity (2020)

Inspired by the novel of the same name and out on Hulu on February 14, Zoë Kravitz plays Rob Brooks, a woman who owns a local record store in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. She revisits previous relationships through music and pop culture, but she still has yet to get over her one true love.

Honey Boy (2019)

Written by Shia LaBeouf about his own life story, the film chronicles a young actor's rocky childhood and early adult years as he struggles to make amends with his abusive father and deal with his mental health as a young person in Hollywood. The film arrived on Amazon Prime on February 7, so you're only a couple of clicks away from seeing what all the buzz was about.

The Farewell (2019)

If you haven't yet seen the film that won Awkwafina a Golden Globe, now is your chance. Billi's (Awkwafina) family returns to China under the guise of a fake wedding to say goodbye to their matriarch, the only person who doesn't know she only has a few weeks to live. While the film was sadly absent from the Oscars nominations, we have a feeling people will be buzzing about it again upon streaming it on Amazon Prime starting February 12.

Ma (2019)

A lonely woman (Octavia Spencer) befriends some teenagers and invites them to throw a party in her basement. The catch? They can't curse, must never go upstairs, and have to call her Ma. Things start to get weird when Ma becomes obsessed and starts terrorizing them. After first chilling audiences last year, the film became available to stream on HBO Go on February 8.

Toy Story 4 (2019)

Out on Disney+ since February 5, this Oscar-winning film follows the beloved crew on a trip with Bonnie and a new toy named Forky. The journey takes a slight turn when Woody runs into his old friend, Bo Peep. As Woody and Bo reminisce, they soon find out that they have differing opinions on what it means to live as a toy.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2020)

In the epic final season coming to Disney+, the show picks back up where it left off and finds each character dealing with the impending doom of the Order 66, the Jedi massacre seen in Revenge of the Sith. Stream it starting on February 21.

Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet (2020)

Having arrived for streaming on Apple TV+ on February 7, this comedy is set in a video game development studio. It explores human connection as well as what it takes to build (and become) heroes and legends.

Visible: Out on Television (2020)

Out on February 14 on Apple TV, each episode of this new show will explore themes such as homophobia, invisibility, the evolution of the LGBTQ+ character, and coming out in the TV industry. Notable cameos include Ellen DeGeneres, Lena Waithe, and Rachel Maddow.
