The top Music/Musicals movie rentals at Netflix


When a group of ambitious teenage dancers, musicians and actors enter a new semester at New York's prestigious High School of Performing Arts, they try to make the most out of their chance at stardom in this remake of the Oscar-winning 1980 drama.

Adapted from the hit Broadway musical, this nostalgic look at the Four Seasons and their bumpy offstage lives stretches across four decades. Each of the musical act's four original members presents a different set of memories from their shared past.

After a botched sex-change operation, East German glam rocker Hansel (John Cameron Mitchell) becomes Hedwig and travels across the United States with a stage show, following her ex-boyfriend (and former band mate) and telling her life story. Hedwig's offbeat show slays audiences -- but in diners not clubs. Mitchell also wrote and directed the comedy, which won at the Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for several Independent Spirit Awards.

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese chronicles the incomparable career of the Rolling Stones with this one-of-a-kind documentary that features footage from the legendary band's "A Bigger Bang" tour. Backed by a stellar crew of cinematographers, Scorsese mixes revealing interviews, fascinating behind-the-scenes clips and live performances to capture the "world's greatest rock 'n' roll band" in all their glory.

In 1950s Hollywood, Eddie Mannix labors behind the scenes to "fix" the indiscretions committed by a major film studio's marquee stars. But Eddie has his work cut out when some angry scriptwriters abduct a screen idol from a movie set.

It doesn't get any better than this slice of Midwestern Americana: Charming con man Harold Hill (Robert Preston) wants to steal River City citizens' money with a "boys' band" scam, but finds it hard to skip town when lovely librarian Marian Paroo (Shirley Jones) steals his heart. Composer Meredith Willson's valentine to his own hometown packs great songs and wonderful performances from, among others, Buddy Hackett and a young Ron Howard.

This documentary captures rock icons Metallica while they record their 2003 album, "St. Anger," amid a sea of personal and professional turmoil. In addition to James Hetfield's rehab, the film also follows the replacement of bassist Jason Newsted.

Acclaimed director Jonathan Demme turns his cameras on musician Neil Young in this intimate two-night concert featuring a soul-bearing set from Young's album "Prairie Wind" and filmed inside Nashville's landmark Ryman Auditorium.

The director's cut of Michael Wadleigh's Oscar-winning documentary restores footage snipped from the original 1970 release. With the help of a young editor named Martin Scorsese, Wadleigh not only chronicles Woodstock's memorable music and legendary artists, he also captures the festival's dauntless free spirit. The presentation features live performances from, among others, Jimi Hendrix; the Who; Janis Joplin; and Crosby, Stills and Nash.

Featuring classic renditions of "Sympathy for the Devil," "Under My Thumb," "Satisfaction," "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and "Wild Horses," this unvarnished documentary chronicles the Rolling Stones' chaotic 1969 American tour. The film starts off on a high note at a riveting New York City show and concludes in the aftermath of the infamous Altamont Speedway gig, where Hell's Angels who were hired to do security ultimately brutalized concert-goers.
