  • Saving Mr Banks [DVD] Saving Mr Banks | DVD | (24/03/2014) from £5.47  |  Saving you £10.50 (65.70%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar winner Tom Hanks star in Disney's Saving Mr. Banks inspired by the extraordinary untold tale of how one of the most beloved stories of all time Mary Poppins was brought to the big screen. The film is a poignant sharply funny and moving recounting of Walt Disney's (Tom Hanks) quest to fulfil a promise to his daughters to make a film of their favourite book and of its fiercely protective author PL Travers (Emma Thompson) who had no intention of letting her beloved nanny go to Hollywood. Saving Mr. Banks follows Walt as he has to pull out all the stops to change PL Travers' mind and is ultimately forced to reach back into his own childhood to discover the truth about the ghosts that haunt her. Together they set Mary Poppins free to become one of the most endearing films in cinematic history. Academy Award winner Paul Giamatti Colin Farrell Ruth Wilson and Jason Schwartzman round out the terrific cast.

  • Love Actually [2003] Love Actually | DVD | (19/03/2004) from £2.49  |  Saving you £2.00 (33.40%)  |  RRP £5.99

    With no fewer than eight couples vying for our attention, Love Actually is like the London Marathon of romantic comedies, and everybody wins. Having mastered the genre as the writer of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, and Bridget Jones's Diary, it appears that first-time director Richard Curtis is just like his screenplays: he just wants to be loved, and he'll go to absurdly appealing lengths to win our affection. With Love Actually, Curtis orchestrates a minor miracle of romantic choreography, guiding a brilliant cast of stars and newcomers as they careen toward love and holiday cheer in London, among them the Prime Minister (Hugh Grant) who's smitten with his caterer (Martine McCutcheon); a widower (Liam Neeson) whose young son nurses the ultimate schoolboy crush; a writer (Colin Firth) who falls for his Portuguese housekeeper; a devoted wife and mother (Emma Thompson) coping with her potentially unfaithful husband (Alan Rickman); and a lovelorn American (Laura Linney) who's desperately attracted to a colleague. There's more--too much more--as Curtis wraps his Christmas gift with enough happy endings to sweeten a dozen other movies. That he pulls it off so entertainingly is undeniably impressive; that he does it so shamelessly suggests that his writing fares better with other, less ingratiating directors. --Jeff Shannon

  • Much Ado About Nothing [1993] Much Ado About Nothing | DVD | (01/10/1999) from £4.09  |  Saving you £11.90 (74.40%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Kenneth Branagh's 1993 production of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing is a vigorous and imaginative work, cheerful and accessible for everyone. Largely the story of Benedick (Branagh) and Beatrice (Emma Thompson)--adversaries who come to believe each is trying to woo the other--the film veers from arched wit to ironic romps, and the two leads don't mind looking a little silly at times. But the plot is also layered with darker matters that concern the ease with which men and women fall into mutual distrust. Branagh has rounded up a mixed cast of stage vets and Hollywood stars, among the latter Denzel Washington and Michael Keaton, the latter playing a rather seedy, Beetlejuice-like version of Dogberry, king of malapropisms.--Tom Keogh

  • Alone in Berlin [DVD] Alone in Berlin | DVD | (23/10/2017) from £6.89  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    Based on the best-selling book, Alone in Berlin tells the story of a couple in Nazi-occupied Germany who stand up to Hitler and the SS regime after their son is killed in action. By placing postcards around Berlin with revolutionary messages on the Quangels hope to rally any other anti-Hitler supporter and disrupt the slow creep of War.

  • Sense And Sensibility [1996] Sense And Sensibility | DVD | (13/07/1998) from £3.00  |  Saving you £16.99 (85.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Emma Thompson scores a double bull's-eye with this marvellous adaptation of Jane Austen's novel . Not only does Thompson turn in a strong (and gently humorous) performance as Elinor Dashwood--the one with "sense"--she also wrote the witty, wise screenplay. Austen's tale of 19th-century manners and morals provides a large cast with a feast of possibilities, notably Kate Winslet, in her pre-Titanic flowering, as Thompson's deeply romantic sister, Marianne (the one with "sensibility"). Winslet attracts the wooing of shy Alan Rickman (a nice change of pace from his bad-guy roles) and dashing Greg Wise, while Thompson must endure an incredibly roundabout courtship with Hugh Grant, here in fine and funny form. All of this is doled out with the usual eye-filling English countryside and handsome costumes, yet the film always seems to be about the careful interior lives of its characters. The director, an inspired choice, is Taiwan-born Ang Lee, who brings the same exquisite taste and discreet touch he displayed in his previous Asian films (such as Eat Drink Man Woman). Thompson's script won an Oscar. --Robert Horton, Amazon.com

  • Nanny McPhee [2005] Nanny McPhee | DVD | (13/02/2006) from £2.99  |  Saving you £17.00 (85.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    A recently widowed Mr Brown employs the services of a nanny in the hope that order will be restored to his household and his seven children. However, the children have other ideas having already dispatched seventeen nannies, who also thought that they knew better.

  • The Remains Of The Day [1993] The Remains Of The Day | DVD | (22/10/2001) from £3.00  |  Saving you £9.99 (76.90%)  |  RRP £12.99

  • Brideshead Revisited [2008] Brideshead Revisited | DVD | (09/03/2009) from £5.49  |  Saving you £14.50 (72.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    A victim of her father's debt 'Little Dorrit' has spent her childhood behind the heavy iron doors of Marshalsea Prison. But will a chance meeting change her life?

  • Angels In America [2003] Angels In America | DVD | (07/04/2008) from £4.99  |  Saving you £9.00 (64.30%)  |  RRP £13.99

    Tony Kushner's prize-winning play Angels in America became the defining US theatrical event of the 1990s, an astonishing mix of philosophy, politics, and vibrant gay soap opera that summed up the Reagan era for an entire generation of theatre-goers. Post-9/11 would seem to be too late for a film version--philosophy and politics don't always age well--but this 2003 HBO adaptation, ably directed by Mike Nichols, provides a time capsule of the '80s and reveals the deep emotional subcurrents that will give the play lasting power. The story centers around Prior Walter (Justin Kirk) and Louis Ironson (Ben Shenkman), a gay couple that falls apart when Prior grows ill as a result of AIDS. But cancer is not the only thing invading Prior's life: He begins to have religious visions of an angel (Emma Thompson) announcing that he is a prophet. Louis, who doesn't cope well with disease and suggestions of mortality, leaves and starts a relationship with Joe Pitt (Patrick Wilson), a closeted Mormon who works for Roy Cohn (Al Pacino)--the real-life right-wing lawyer, notorious for his ruthless behind-the-scenes machinations. Add in Joe's depressed and hallucinating wife Harper (Mary Louise Parker), his determined but open-minded mother Hannah (Meryl Streep), a fierce drag queen/nurse named Belize (Jeffrey Wright, reprising his celebrated performance from the Broadway production), and you've still only begun to discover the wealth of characters and storylines in Kushner's ambitious work. The powerhouse cast (also featuring James Cromwell, Michael Gambon, and Simon Callow) is uniformly superb. The script has its weaknesses--some of the fantastic elements, including Prior's journey to Heaven towards the end, fall flat--but even what doesn't work is bristling with ideas and a ferocious desire to capture human existence in this time and place. --Bret Fetzer

  • Treasure Planet  (Disney) [2003] Treasure Planet (Disney) | DVD | (07/07/2003) from £5.99  |  Saving you £12.00 (66.70%)  |  RRP £17.99

    Treasure Planet, a pet project of Little Mermaid, Aladdin and Hercules codirectors Ron Clements and John Musker, is an ambitious animation hybrid (traditional animation combined with elaborate CGI backgrounds). It was the subject of numerous in-studio battles, but Disney office politics and a poor public reception shouldn't distract one from its many admirable qualities, not the least being its overall fidelity to Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel Treasure Island. Curiously revamped as a sci-fi adventure with space-faring galleons, flintlock ray guns and extreme-sports attitude, it caters to a young audience for whom Stevenson's adventure is an undiscovered treasure, revving up the material with arcade-game excitements. It's entertaining, for what it is, and kids will surely enjoy it. Maybe next time, however, Disney will follow its own legacy and properly adapt Stevenson (as they did with their 1950 live-action classic) for a new, and hopefully receptive, generation. --Jeff Shannon

  • Howards End [DVD] [1992] Howards End | DVD | (27/11/2017) from £6.09  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    Howards End is E M Forster's beautifully subtle story of the criss-crossing paths of the privileged and those they disdain--and of a remarkable pair of women who can see beyond class distinctions. Dramatic and tragic but also surprisingly funny, this James Ivory film focuses on a pair of unmarried sisters (Emma Thompson, who won an Oscar, and Helena Bonham Carter) who befriend a poor young clerk (Sam West) and, without meaning to, ruin his life. Meanwhile, Thompson also makes the acquaintance of a dying neighbour (Vanessa Redgrave), who leaves her a family home in her will--which her husband (Anthony Hopkins) destroys. But, ironically, he meets and falls in love with Thompson, even as their paths once more intersect with the increasingly miserable young clerk. Ruth Prawer Jhabvala's beautifully economical script also won an Oscar.--Marshall Fine

  • Much Ado About Nothing [DVD] Much Ado About Nothing | DVD | (09/05/2018) from £3.99  |  Saving you £21.00 (84.00%)  |  RRP £24.99

  • Junior [1994] Junior | DVD | (04/08/2008) from £4.09  |  Saving you £5.90 (59.10%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Arnold Schwarzenegger as a pregnant man? The Terminator with cramps and morning sickness? That was all the teasing audiences needed to flock to this 1994 farce, which reunited Arnold with his director and co-star from Twins, Ivan Reitman and Danny De Vito. Reitman had also directed the Austrian muscleman in Kindergarten Cop, and they brought the same breezy quality of those earlier films to this enjoyable fluff, in which Arnold plays a scientist who uses his own body to test a revolutionary new fertility drug. His colleague De Vito talks him into the experiment, which succeeds beyond their wildest expectations when Arnold begins a full-term pregnancy. Emma Thompson offers a wealth of comedic support as the biologist who moves into Schwarzenegger's lab while he's coping with his "maternal" condition, and Pamela Reed (who was also in Kindergarten Cop) adds to the fun as De Vito's pregnant ex-wife. What's surprising about this mainstream hit is not that it makes the most of its absurd premise, but that it's also sweetly heart-warming in its treatment of role reversal and the joys and pains of pregnancy. It's a good-natured vehicle for a different side of Schwarzenegger's star appeal, and the fact that it works at all is a tribute to Reitman and his cleverly talented cast. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

  • Winter Guest Winter Guest | DVD | (01/09/2008) from £3.99  |  Saving you £12.00 (75.00%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Set upon the shores of a picturesque Scottish seaside town in the icy depths of winter The Winter Guest is moving funny and tender story about life love and the need to feel wanted. Oscar winner Emma Thompson and her real life mother Phyllida Law bring extraordinary emotional depth to this sometimes comic often poignant story of four sets of odd couples each representing a different generation from childhood to old age. Frances (Emma Thompson) is trying to overcome the recent loss of her husband: while Elspeth her Mother (Phyllida Law) is attempting to rekindle the relationship between herself and her daughter. As their lives intertwine with those of two young boys (playing truant) a teenage couple (on the brink of sexual awakening) and two elderly ladies (who spend their time choosing which funeral to attend) their affections for each other begin to thaw while all around them is cold frosty and snow covered...
