New on Prime Video in January 2024: Top picks

Foe (Jan. 5)

Junior (Paul Mescal) and Hen (Saoirse Ronan) are a couple living an unassuming life on a remote farm. Their tranquil existence is shaken up when a mysterious stranger named Terrance (Aaron Pierre) arrives with an offer that challenges their relationship and identities. Junior is to be sent off to live on a spaceship, while a robot will act as Hen's companion in the interim. Based on Iain Reid's 2018 novel of the same name, it's a psychological thriller with serious Black Mirror vibes. 

Premieres Jan. 5 on Prime Video

Role Play (Jan. 12)

Emma (Kaley Cuoco) is a suburban mother and wife with a secret. She's actually a contract killer. When Emma's husband (David Oyelowo) unwittingly stumbles upon her double life, he reacts in a bit of an unexpected fashion. Instead of being taken aback or angry, he joins her on a high-stakes mission that puts the two in grave danger. Meanwhile, a man named Bob (Bill Nighy) seems to have a mysterious connection to Emma's shadowy world. How are the two connected? What set Emma down the hitman career path? All is revealed in due time.

Expats (Jan. 26)

Mercy (Ji-young Yoo), a recent Columbia graduate of Korean descent is looking for a fresh start.  Hilary (Sarayu Blue), living in the lap of luxury, grapples with infertility and a collapsing marriage. Then there's Margaret (Nicole Kidman), whose picture-perfect life as a mother is shattered unexpectedly and she begins to pick up the pieces of her old life. As these women's paths cross, they forge an unexpected bond as part of a close-knit community of expatriates throughout their high and low points and the life lessons they end up learning together.
