It is so fun to continue to discover more and more LDS related films available to stream on Netflix. To save you time, here's an updated list of all the LDS related movies currently on Netflix. Do you have a favorite that you watch? I've check the list of upcoming and soon to be removed from Netflix for June as well. All the following should be around for at least the next month if not longer.
Did you know that this list can be a great missionary tool too? Suggest a movie to a friend and talk about later or better yet, watch one together. You can draw on similar values and build from there!

Turn it into a family time movie event with these fun snack trays. Set up a snack bar, pass some at home movie tickets and have some fun!
JOSEPH SMITH: PROPHET OF THE RESTORATION (NR)
This movie doesn't flow like other movies, rather it's a combination of all the events of the restoration. My kids were shocked when they saw the scenes with the tar and feathering and other persecutions. It was good for them to learn about how much the early saints had to suffer through and why they chose to do so (especially Joseph Smith). However, it is something to be aware of so you can talk about it together.
SARATOV APPROACH (PG-13)
A true story of 2 LDS missionaries kidnapped and beaten while serving in Russia. It really shows how you can still have faith and hope in the face of such a great trial. It might make you cry as well. This movie is not ideal for young children because it is such a serious and intense movie. Want to own it? Buy it here.
A group of American paratroopers risk their lives after landing in enemy territory to save a group of French resistance fighters. Takes place during World War II. Keep in mind these are war movies so there will be shooting and blood. This is also available at Target.com.
The first of the Saints and Soldiers movies- all based on real events during war. This one is about a small band of Allied soldiers trying to survive behind enemy lines. One of them is a U.S. soldier that had previously served as a missionary in the same area. During the movie they are trying to get information back to their supervisors so they can save thousands of lives.
The star rugby player is sent to a reformatory for a DUI. While he is serving his sentence, a tough rival coach allows him to play for his team. This movie is said to show the importance of good values and making champions out of each player not just a champion team. It's also available at Target.com.
AMERICAN MORMON (NR)
Two filmmakers travel around the U.S. asking people on the streets about their perception and misconceptions of Mormons. At only about 30 minutes, you could use this during a youth activity to show why it is important to include our church activities when talking about our daily lives to friends.
There are lots of other great religious shows and movies also available on Netflix. I only listed the ones that I discovered have LDS ties. You can find these and other great LDS movies at the LDS Bookstore. You can also find some of the bigger name movies at Target (although some are only available online).
Your Turn- What's your favorite LDS show to stream on Netflix right now? What other shows do you love to watch on Netflix? What movie are you going to suggest to a friend?
