  • Paddington [DVD] Paddington | DVD | (23/03/2015) from £5.00  |  Saving you £14.99 (75.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Adapted from Michael Bond's beloved books Paddington follows the comic misadventures of a polite young Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British who travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station he begins to realise that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kind Brown family who read the label around his neck ('Please look after this bear. Thank you.') and offer him a temporary haven. But little do the Browns realise just how much comic mayhem one young bear will bring to their family life and when this rarest of bears catches the eye of a sinister seductive taxidermist it isn't long before his home - and very existence - is under threat... Produced by David Heyman (The Harry Potter series) Paddington is a timeless and universal story written and directed by Paul King. With Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington Bear the film's all-star cast includes Hugh Bonneville Nicole Kidman Sally Hawkins Jim Broadbent Peter Capaldi and Julie Walters.

  • Brooklyn [DVD] Brooklyn | DVD | (29/02/2016) from £5.00  |  Saving you £14.99 (75.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    BROOKLYN is the story of a young woman, Eilis (Saoirse Ronan; Atonement) who moves from a small town in Ireland to Brooklyn, where, unlike home, she has the opportunity for work, a future - and love, in the form of Italian-American Tony (Emory Cohen; The Place Beyond The Pines). However, when Eilis returns temporarily to Ireland she finds herself absorbed into her old community, but now with eligible Jim (Domhnall Gleeson; About Time) courting her. As she repeatedly postpones her departure back to America, Eilis finds herself confronting a terrible dilemma - a heart-breaking choice between two countries and two futures.

  • Mamma Mia! Mamma Mia! | DVD | (24/11/2008) from £3.20  |  Saving you £17.80 (80.90%)  |  RRP £21.99

    The delirious sight of Meryl Streep leading a river of multigenerational women singing "Dancing Queen" is one of the high points of Mamma Mia!, the musical built around the songs of the hugely popular pop group ABBA. The plot sets in motion when Sophie (Amanda Seyfried, Mean Girls), daughter of Donna (Streep), sends a letter to three men, inviting them to her wedding--because after reading her mother's diary, she suspects that one of them is her father. When all three arrive at the Greek island where Donna runs a hotel, Donna flips out and finds that passions she thought she'd laid aside are coming back to life. But let's face it, the plot is not the point--it's a ridiculous contrivance that provides an excuse for the characters to sing the massive hits of ABBA. Regrettably, first-time film director Phyllida Lloyd (who directed the original stage production) has drawn over-the-top performances from everyone involved, even Streep; every production number hammers its exuberance into your eyeballs. Which is too bad, because Mamma Mia! is a rarity: A middle-aged love story. The kids start things off, but the story is really about Streep and the three guys (former James Bond Pierce Brosnan, former Mr. Darcy Colin Firth, and Swedish star Stellan Skarsgard), as well as Donna's best friends (Christine Baranski, best known from the TV show Cybill, and Julie Walters, Calendar Girls). It's a romantic comedy aimed at the people who were around when all these songs were new, and that's an age group Hollywood largely ignores. For that alone, Mamma Mia! deserves to find an audience. --Bret Fetzer

  • Billy Elliot [2000] Billy Elliot | DVD | (18/04/2006) from £4.19  |  Saving you £11.80 (73.80%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Foursquare in the gritty-but-hearwarming tradition of Brassed Off and The Full Monty comes Billy Elliot, the first film of noted British theatrical director Stephen Daldry. The setting is County Durham in 1984, and things 'oop North are even grimmer than usual: the miners' strike is in full rancorous swing and 11-year-old Billy's dad and older brother, miners both, are staunch on the picket lines. Billy's got problems of his own. His dad's scraped together the fees to send him to boxing lessons, but Billy's discovered a different aptitude: a genius for ballet dancing. Since admitting to such an activity is tantamount, in this fiercely macho culture, to holding up a sign reading "I AM A RAVING POOF", Billy keeps it quiet. But his teacher, Mrs Wilkinson (Julie Walters, wearily undaunted) thinks he should audition for ballet school in London. Family ructions are inevitable. Daldry's film sidesteps some of the politics, both sexual and otherwise, but scores with its laconic dialogue (credit to screenwriter Lee Hall) and a cracking performance from newcomer Jamie Bell as Billy. His powerhouse dance routines, more Gene Kelly than Nureyev, carry an irresistible sense of exhilaration and self-discovery. Among a flawless supporting cast Stuart Wells stands out as Billy's sweet gay friend Michael. And if the miners' strike serves largely as background colour, there's one brief episode, as visored and truncheoned cops rampage through neat little terraced houses, that captures one of the most spiteful episodes in recent British history. --Philip Kemp

He's a bona fide national treasure until the day he receives a knock at the door. Faced with an accusation of long-past sexual offences, the life of this adored entertainer begins to unravel. Paul, and all those closest to him, are put under the intense pressure of the investigation and the merciless media circus that accompanies it, from his wife of 40 years Marie (Walters) and his troubled daughter Dee (Riseborough), to his manager and his loyal comedy partner, Karl (McInnerny). Throughout the investigation and criminal trial that follows, memories prove muddied, doubts flourish, loyalties are tested, and truths, half-truths and lies are all exposed. This powerful exploration of truth, memory, trust and family calls into question: how well do we really know those we love? The answer lies in a National Treasure.

    The year is 1932, the place is India, and the people are romanticised, politicised and radicalised. They are drawn together and driven apart by class, race, love and theft, and the world around them is changing. In the small British colony of Simla, placed at the foothills of the Himalayas, the beliefs of the British Empire still remain but the young are hungry for freedom. Indian Summers tells a sweeping saga, stories of love, secrets, promises made and broken, and tensions that simmer in the hot, feverish days and nights of India - an India populated by freedom fighters, star-crossed lovers, political spies, artists, orphans, expats, the rich and the poor.

  • Brooklyn [Blu-ray] Brooklyn | Blu Ray | (29/02/2016) from £8.89  |  Saving you £16.10 (64.40%)  |  RRP £24.99

  • Educating Rita [1984] Educating Rita | DVD | (20/10/2003) from £4.18  |  Saving you £5.81 (58.20%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Michael Caine and the knockout Julie Walters deliver a pair of wonderful performances in this endearingly bittersweet tale of a boozily burnt-out professor's tutoring of (and subsequent tutoring by) a free-spirited hairdresser determined to improve her lot in life. The basic plot won't exactly surprise anyone who's ever seen a movie before but the ace cast (particularly Caine, who's rarely this subtle) continually finds new directions to spin off from the rather rote path. Although the end result is perhaps just a little too convinced of its own adorability to attain classic status, this remains a rarity in the genre--a feel-good film that earns its emotions honestly. A nice change of pace for director Lewis Gilbert, who is perhaps better known for his contributions to the James Bond series. --Andrew Wright

  • Calendar Girls [2003] Calendar Girls | DVD | (09/02/2004) from £3.88  |  Saving you £14.11 (78.40%)  |  RRP £17.99

    In the sensible yet elegant hands of actresses Helen Mirren and Julie Walters, Calendar Girls walks a fine line between sappiness and snickering and ends up both wonderfully funny and gently touching. When her best friend Annie (Walters) loses her husband, Chris (Mirren) cooks up a scheme to commemorate him: they and their friends--all fiftysomething women--will make a nude calendar to raise money for the hospital where he died. The calendar becomes hugely popular, but the success may drive a wedge between the two women's friendship. Based on a true story, Calendar Girls carefully balances the stories of several women as it follows the calendar's media explosion, becoming a surprisingly moving fable of loss, determination and the perils of fame. And let's face it--Helen Mirren is one of the wittiest and sexiest women alive, clothes on or not. --Bret Fetzer

  • Mamma Mia! [Blu-ray] [2008] Mamma Mia! | Blu Ray | (24/11/2008) from £4.99  |  Saving you £0.01 (0.20%)  |  RRP £5
