Starting of best movies for singles on Netflix, we have Clueless. This movie is known for being a lot of things. The 1995 film is a cult classic, a feast of fashion, endless inspiration for memes, and a place to learn a lot of life lessons.

Eat Pray Love
If you’re struggling to make a settlement with yourself I think this movie should top the recommend list. It’s a magnificent film, thanks to the unique script, Julia Roberts has been spectacular as her character Liz; but all actors had done a great job. Julia represents 65 % of the acting work. The men in her life, from Billy Crudup (husband), James Franco, and finally Javier Barden have secondary roles. The author did not give any importance to the actors, the entire movie is about herself, with the unique Julia Roberts representing her.
For A Good Time, Call…
