The Best Movies and TV Shows New to Netflix, Amazon and Stan in Australia in October

‘The Godfather Trilogy’
Starts streaming: October 9

The first two “Godfather” movies are among the greatest achievements of American cinema, with director Francis Ford Coppola adding a sense of grandeur and social commentary to novelist Mario Puzo’s pulpy, decades-spanning organized crime potboiler. The third film is something of a letdown; but regardless, this story of the powerful, corrupt Corleone family is absorbing and rich, with a lot to say about how criminal enterprises can become social institutions. The trilogy also features a remarkable cast, including Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, Robert Duvall and Robert De Niro.

‘Looking for Alaska’ Season 1
Starts streaming: October 19

Like a lot of young writers, John Green turned to his own life when penning his first novel, the acclaimed 2005 high school saga “Looking for Alaska,” about a bookish teen who finds a sympathetic clique of misfits at a boarding school. After multiple attempts to adapt Green’s story into a movie, the “Gossip Girl” and “The O.C.” writer/producers Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz have made it into an eight-part mini-series, with the accomplished young actor Charlie Plummer as the introverted hero and Kristine Froseth as the title character Alaska Young.
