New streaming movies are coming to entertain you and your family during socially distanced times.

This weekend, Millie Bobby Brown (of “Stranger Things” fame) gets her own Netflix adventure, Disney+ has a new young-adult heroine in a princess/superhero mashup, Keira Knightley and Gugu Mbatha-Raw star in a real-life 1970s feminist tale, and there’s a super-sweet new documentary about French history and desserts.

If you’re feeling the itch to get back to the movies in person, and there’s a drive-in or it’s safe enough to return to your local theater, writer/director Miranda July’s crime comedy “Kajillionaire” arrives Friday starring Debra Winger and Richard Jenkins as con artists, Evan Rachel Wood as their daughter and Gina Rodriguez as a stranger they recruit for their latest scam.
