12 Best Free Movies On Peacock Right Now

NBC’s new service Peacock launched a free tier that allows you to watch movies without a subscription. Below are the ones we recommend most.

Eastern Promises (2007)

Starring a tattooed and terrifying Viggo Mortensen, Eastern Promises is a Russian gangster thriller film set in a very nasty London. Operating at a fever pitch of grim violence and revenge, the film has moments of humanity and charm, thanks to the visionary director, David Cronenberg, in one of his most approachable films. While the violence and action are brutal and cathartic, equally as impressive is Mr. Cronenberg’s sharp understanding of the London crime scene and the various factions and languages that make up the largely hidden underworld.

Genre: Drama, Mystery
Actor: Aleksandar Mikic, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Donald Sumpter, Jerzy Skolimowski, Mina E. Mina, Naomi Watts, Sarah-Jeanne Labrosse, Sinead Cusack, Viggo Mortensen, Vincent Cassel

Short Term 12 (2013)

Understated in budget but lavished with praise, this semi-autobiographical drama by Daniel Destin Cretton flings its audience into the chaotic lives and personal crises of at-risk youths and the passionate social workers that aid them. In his first feature film, the young director draws the viewers into the storm of events and the emotional ups-and-downs of social work in America, going from uplifting to depressing and back – and every emotion in-between.

Set in the real-life and eponymous group home Short Term 12, devoted but troubled foster-care worker Grace is played by Brie Larson, whose shining performance in her first leading role was lauded by critics. Fans will also recognize the supporting actors Lakeith Stanfield and Rami Malek, who broke out in this movie. Short Term 12 is now considered one of the most important movies of 2013 – some say of the decade – owing to its immaculate writing, intimate camerawork, and gripping performances.
