Five movies for any mood to stream on Peacock this June.

This June, we're celebrating Pride Month by highlighting remarkable LGBTQ+ films that cover a full range of human experiences.

From moving romances to knee-slapping comedies, there are movies for every mood available to stream on Peacock.

Samson Selim, Vladimir Tintor, Anamaria Marinca, and Sara Klimoska in Housekeeping For Beginners

In the mood for a heartwarming family film? | Housekeeping for Beginners

Writer-director Goran Stolevski’s Housekeeping for Beginners is a family movie for a new generation. When fate hands Dita (Anamaria Marinca) the job of raising her girlfriend’s two children—a troublemaking little girl (Dzada Selim) and a rebellious teen (Mia Mustafi)—everyone in her crowded home pitches in. Her roommate’s (Vladimir Tintor) boyfriend (Samson Selim) becomes an instant parent. And Dita steps up to be, as Rolling Stone writes, “a mother, in every sense of the phrase.” “In most of the world this story still makes sense,” Stolevski tells Entertainment Voice, “it’s very complicated to be gay and still live your best life possible.” Rolling Stone writes, “It is a primer…for turning a house into a home.”

Margaret Qualley and Geraldine Viswanathan in Drive-Away Dolls

In the mood for a riotous road movie? | Drive-Away Dolls

Drive-Away Dolls, directed by Ethan Coen from a screenplay by Coen and Tricia Cooke, is a rollicking fun road movie about two women (Margaret Qualley and Geraldine Viswanathan) from Philadelphia bound for Tallahassee, Florida. Up for adventure with lots of dive bars along the way, the two find their trip slowed down by a gang of inept criminals, a shady politician, and a briefcase filled with surprises. With a supporting cast that includes Pedro Pascal, Matt Damon, and Beanie Feldstein, the film is, as Cooke told Pink News, “a comedy for the queer world.” For Mashable, “Drive-Away Dolls is a joyous romp, stuffed with fun, sex appeal, and stars. What more could we ask for at a night out at the movies?”

Ben Aldridge and Jim Parsons in Spoiler Alert

In the mood for a moving romance? | Spoiler Alert

Based on Michael Ausiello’s memoir, Michael Showalter’s Spoiler Alert finds the heart of a love story in the most tragic of times. Jim Parsons plays Ausiello, a TV journalist, whose 14-year relationship with Kit Cowan (Ben Aldridge) gets turned upside down when Cowan is diagnosed with a life-threatening disease. Parsons told the AV Club, “This story resonated so much with me [because] it was such an authentic tale of what it is to just live your ordinary life—in extraordinary circumstances.” The Washington Post writes, “The movie tells a story about two lives: complicated, filled with both love and pain, but well and fully lived.”

Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger in Brokeback Mountain

In the mood for a great Western love story? | Brokeback Mountain

Ang Lee’s masterpiece Brokeback Mountain is a monumental tale of love. After Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger) and Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) fall in love while herding sheep on Brokeback Mountain, they spend the rest of their lives yearning to regain the freedom and promise they felt that summer. “The glory of Brokeback Mountain is that in tracing their fates, treating their passion as something unprecedented—a force so powerful it can scarcely be named—the movie makes love seem as ineffable as it really is,” writes Entertainment Weekly. Nominated for eight Academy Awards®—winning for Original Score, Adapted Screenplay, and Best Director—Brokeback Mountain leads Collider’s list of best Western romance movies.

Gina Rodriguez and Evan Rachel Wood in Kajillionaire

In the mood for a comic crime caper? | Kajillionaire

In Kajillionaire, Miranda July brings out the connection of a con game. An adult child of small-time grifters (Richard Jenkins and Debra Winger), Old Dolio (Evan Rachel Wood) is often more an accomplice than a daughter. Living in an office space adjacent to a leaking bubble factory, her future seems uncertain. When Melanie (Gina Rodriguez) joins this odd family, her connection to Old Dolio becomes something unexpectedly real. For Wood, those powerful feelings defy characterization. “There was a love story in the film, but the film is not a queer love story. They just happen to be queer," Wood tells Pride. “It’s an emotional heist story,” July told Rolling Stone. Vox writes, “Kajillionaire is a movie about love and loneliness, and it’s funny and bittersweet and beautiful.”
