What’s new on Netflix Canada, CraveTV in May

A monthly look at what’s scheduled to be added to the catalogues of streaming services Netflix Canada and CraveTV:


Netflix unleashes its feature-length thriller “Anon,” starring Clive Owen as a detective assigned to investigate a serial assassin who’s been erased from all visual records. He recruits an experienced hacker, played by Amanda Seyfried, to help track down the killer, but quickly finds truth and illusion are finely blurred points. The film is directed by Andrew Niccol, whose previous work includes “Gattaca” and “Lord of War.”

Four-part documentary series “The Fourth Estate” debuts on CraveTV shortly after screening at both the Tribeca Film Festival and Toronto’s Hot Docs Festival in late April. Filmmaker Liz Garbus, who made Netflix doc “What Happened, Miss Simone?,” trails reporters at the New York Times during Donald Trump’s first year as president, as they chase stories and cover the man who declared most U.S. news outlets an “enemy of the people.”

Here are the lists of movies and TV shows expected in May. Release dates are subject to change.
