The biggest exit from Netflix this week has to be the John Wells directorial starring Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, August: Osage County. But before July wraps up and definitively plunges us into the second half of 2023, a few other shows and films will depart from the streaming platform.

Meanwhile, Romance Doll (2020) offers a bittersweet tale of love and sacrifice that captivated audiences with its poignant storytelling and compelling performances. Rounding off this day of departures is the enigmatic neo-noir thriller Serenity (2019), starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Diane Lane, Jason Clarke, Djimon Hounsou, and Jeremy Strong, which may have been panned by critics by had twists and turns galore.
