Based on Piper Kerman's memoir, the newest Netflix original series, Orange Is the New Black, follows a privileged, squeaky-clean Brooklyn woman who is sentenced to 15 months in prison for her relationship with an international drug smuggler.

What would you do if you ran out of movies and TV shows to watch? Netflix is going to try to get you by with a little help from your friends. The online streaming and DVD rental service introduced Netflix Social today, a feature that lets users connect a Facebook account to see (or snoop) their friends' viewing history.
Netflix Social could definitely come in handy — but only if you and your friends have the same taste in TV. If the political thriller House of Cards is getting rave reviews from everyone in your network, it's probably time for you to jump on the bandwagon.
But before you connect and agree to share, get to know Netflix Social's new friendly features.

This Friday, Celeste and Jesse Forever comes out in theaters with Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg starring as a couple who are getting divorced but want to remain friends. Rashida told us recently why she was motivated to make a movie about a breakup in the midst of all the aspirational rom-coms. She said, "Almost every adult has had heartbreak. I want to see a movie about that because I've been through it."
While ours may not be of Rob and Kristen proportion, we've all been through some kind of breakup, divorce, or unrequited love scenario. And sometimes before you feel ready to talk it out with a friend or parent, you'd rather just crawl under the covers and tune everything out with a movie.

Grab some popcorn and a box of tissues and check out these films.
