March 1 brings “Capote,” starring the late Philip Seymour Hoffman in his sole Oscar-winning role. The performance serves as a poignant reminder of this prodigiously talented actor.

Another upcoming streaming debut is “Rake,” the Australian series that was recently remade by Fox into a starring vehicle for Greg Kinnear. The first two seasons of the original series debut on March 1.

Several classic films come to Netflix Streaming, including “Roman Holiday,” “Night of the Living Dead,” “The Silence of the Lambs” and “The Ice Storm.” The week also features recent releases, such as the aforementioned Reich documentary, as well as last year’s “Sweetwater,” a “thriller western” starring Ed Harris and January Jones.

This is just the beginning of a remarkable slate, including films starring Tom Cruise, Will Ferrell, Paul Newman, Claire Danes and James Franco. Plus, fans of Pokemon will see several debuts on March 1. Keep track of the latest Netflix Streaming releases by subscribing to the Netflix Instant Examiner today.
