‘The Lost Husband’ Goes #1 on Netflix, Despite Not Being a Netflix Original!

The number one movie on Netflix right now might surprise you because it’s not a Netflix original and has barely been promoted!

The Lost Husband, an indie film starring Josh Duhamel and Leslie Bibb, is currently the most watched movie or TV show on the streaming service.

The film received a VOD release on April 10 and already had gained a small following of fans, but it’s now become a smash hit following its Netflix release on August 10.

Here is the full synopsis: “After the sudden death of her husband, Libby (Bibb) is forced to move in with her hypercritical mother. Out of the blue, her estranged Aunt Jean offers an escape: a job and a place to live on her farm in the Texas Hill Country. Before she can talk herself out of it, Libby is packing the minivan, grabbing the kids, and hitting the road. Life on Aunt Jean’s goat farm is more wonderful and more mysterious than Libby could have imagined. Beyond the animals and the strenuous work, there is quiet — deep, country quiet. But there is also a shaggy, gruff farm manager (Duhamel) with a tragic home life, a feed-store clerk who claims she can contact her husband ‘on the other side,’ and the eccentric aunt she never really knew but who turns out to be exactly who she needs.”

Back in April, Josh said how it was perfect to release the movie during the quarantine.

“This is the perfect time for a movie like this to come out because people are at home watching. You know? These are things that they may really want to dive into. People are sort of stuck at home right now, so they either need to read or watch something and they’re trying to keep themselves occupied. I think any sort of entertainment is helpful,” he told Entertainment Tonight.
