What Happened To Monday - Netflix

In a dystopian future that’s overpopulated, siblings have been banned – seven identical sisters, each named after a day in the week, live in secret and each go out on their day under the identity of Karen Settman.

Noomi Rapace is fantastic at playing all the sisters, giving them each a unique personality, each representing their specified day: Monday – the miserable one; Tuesday – the junkie; Wednesday – the active one; Thursday – the rebellious one; Friday – the smart one; Saturday – the party girl and Sunday – the one with faith.

It never gets too confusing understanding which sister is which and the split-screen effects are fantastic. It offers great world-building, a good mystery and intense action sequences.

Paddington 2 - Amazon Prime

The further adventures of the eternally wholesome, marmalade-loving little bear in the raincoat. Much like his favourite fruit preserve, this film is ineffably sweet; packed with heart warming moments, delightful comedic beats, and inarguably Hugh Grants greatest on-screen character. Don't let this one pass you by if you haven't seen it, or even if you have - it's worth the rewatch.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journeyis a spectacular prequel tale, inspired by the original books and brought to life yet again by Jackson’s visually magnificent filmmaking.

Blinded by the Light - Amazon Prime

This is a brilliant coming of age story about a British-Pakistani teenager in Thatcherite Britain who falls in love with the music of Bruce Springsteen. You don’t need to be a Springsteen fan to enjoy the movie, because at its heart it’s about a teenager struggling to claim his independence while reconciling his dreams with his role in the family. He finds a release in music and lyrics, which speak to him and the film itself often feels on the verge of becoming a full-on musical. It also touches on social issues such as class and racism without feeling too on-the-nose. Viveik Kalra is very touching as Javed, and it’s a great story of teenage passion, family and friendship.
