Every week, the streaming search engine Reelgood compiles for Insider a list of which movies have been most prominent on Netflix's daily top-10 lists that week.
Netflix counts a view if an account watches a movie or TV show for at least two minutes.
More than a month after its release, "The Mitchells and the Machines" is still attracting Netflix viewers.
But the biggest movie this week was an animated children's movie, "Wish Dragon," followed by the thriller "Awake."
