  • Harlots [DVD] [2017] Harlots | DVD | (05/06/2017) from £15.39  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

Inspired by the stories of real women, and the men who surround them, this provocative character-driven series centres on the formidable Margaret Wells (Samantha Morton) and her daughters (Jessica Brown Findlay and Eloise Smyth) as she struggles to reconcile the role of mother with brothel owner. When her business comes under attack from Lydia Quigley (Lesley Manville), a rival madam with a ruthless streak, Margaret will fight back, even if it means putting her family at risk. Combining wit with high drama, this fast-paced tale of family, power and brutal economics shines a light on the extraordinary businesswomen who helped to build the London we know.

  • Control Control | DVD | (11/02/2008) from £5.04  |  Saving you £14.95 (74.80%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Detailing the turbulent life of the founder and former frontman of Joy Division Ian Curtis photographer Anton Corbin's debut feature Control is a tour-de-force of the rise and fall of one of the most iconic and influential bands in British musical history.

  • Minority Report [Blu-ray] [2002] Minority Report | Blu Ray | (17/05/2010) from £6.93  |  Saving you £13.06 (65.30%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Full of flawed characters and shot in grainy de-saturated colours, Steven Spielberg's Minority Report is futuristic film noir with a far-fetched B-movie plot that's so feverishly presented the audience never gets a chance to ponder its many improbabilities. Based on a short story by Philip K Dick, Minority Report is set in the Orwellian near-future of 2054, where a trio of genetically modified "pre-cogs" warn of murders before they happen. In a sci-fi twist on the classic Hitchcockian wrong man scenario, Detective John Anderton (Tom Cruise) is the zealous precrime cop who is himself revealed as a future-killer. Plot twists and red herrings drive the action forward and complications abound, not least Anderton's crippling emotional state, his drug habit, his avuncular-yet-sinister boss (Max Von Sydow), and the ambitious FBI agent Witwer (Colin Farrell) snapping at his heels. Though the film toys with the notion of free will in a deterministic universe, this is not so much a movie of grand ideas as forward-looking ones. Its depiction of a near-future filled with personalised advertising and intrusive security devices that relentlessly violate the right of anonymity is disturbingly believable. Ultimately, though, it's a chase movie and the innovative set-piece sequences reveal Spielberg's flair for staging action. As with A.I.. before it, there's a nagging feeling that the all-too-neat resolution is a Spielbergian touch too far: the movie could satisfactorily have ended several minutes earlier. Though this is superior SF from one of Hollywood's greatest craftsmen, it would have been more in the spirit of Philip K Dick to leave a few tantalisingly untidy plot threads dangling.

  • In America [2003] In America | DVD | (15/03/2004) from £3.99  |  Saving you £10.77 (67.40%)  |  RRP £15.99

    In America stars the incandescent Samantha Morton and Paddy Considine as two young Irish parents who have lost their only son. Trying to run away from their grief, they move (illegally) to a junkie-infested apartment building in New York City with their two daughters, Christy (Sarah Bolger) and Ariel (Emma Bolger). Though they struggle with meagre jobs and suffocatingly hot weather, a friendship with an artist in an apartment below them (Djimon Hounsou) becomes a catalyst that allows them to rebuild their family. In America is splendidly acted throughout--of particular note are the two girls, real-life sisters whose on-screen charisma is clearly a family trait. But it's Morton who anchors the movie; her every emotion seems to glow from her skin. The commitment of the actors keeps the movie compelling, despite some dangerously sentimental patches. --Bret Fetzer

  • Rillington Place [Blu-ray] [2016] Rillington Place | Blu Ray | (16/01/2017) from £12.29  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    In 1950, Timothy Evans was hanged for the murder of his baby daughter Geraldine. The police also believed that he had killed his wife Beryl. But to his final moments Evans protested his innocence. Three years later, a gruesome discovery at 10 Rillington Place revealed that his neighbour star prosecution witness John Reginald Christie (Tim Roth The Hateful Eight, Pulp Fiction) knew much more about the sinister goings on in the house. Set in the dark confines of Christie's home, this powerful drama imagines the relationships between Christie, his wife Ethel (Samantha Morton Minority Report, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) and the innocent young Evans couple. What twisted influence did Christie hold over the young newly-weds Timothy (Nico Mirallegro The Village, Common) and Beryl (Jodie Comer Thirteen, Doctor Foster)? And how was he able to trick both judge and jury into sending an innocent man to the executioner? Special Features HEARTS IN DARKNESS (BEHIND THE SCENES)

  • Enduring Love [2004] Enduring Love | DVD | (11/04/2005) from £5.59  |  Saving you £14.40 (72.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    A red hot-air balloon floating gracefully over the green English countryside leads to a shocking death in Enduring Love, an eerie and hypnotic movie based on a novel by Ian McEwan. Two men tried and failed to help, and afterwards Joe (Daniel Craig, Sylvia, The Mother) finds himself being stalked by the hungry-eyed Jed (Rhys Ifans, Vanity Fair, Human Nature). Like a gangly wraith, Jed follows Joe and begs him to recognize the passionate love Jed feels certain was sparked by the balloon accident. Jed's obsession crawls into Joe's head and his life, clawing at his happy relationship with his girlfriend Claire (Samantha Morton, Morvern Callar, Minority Report) and derailing Joe into an obsessive spiral of his own. Enduring Love builds the taut delirium of a Hitchcock movie. Ifans, best known for his comic performances, curls his tall frame into a seemingly helpless but creepily aggressive shuffle; the haunted eyes of Craig and Morton make the crumbling of their relationship as suspenseful as Jed's stalking. Director Roger Michell (Notting Hill, Persuasion) uses fresh, jarring images and sinuous visual rhythms to craft a tight thriller with unsettling emotional layers. --Bret Fetzer

  • Control [Blu-ray] Control | Blu Ray | (17/10/2011) from £6.49  |  Saving you £11.50 (63.90%)  |  RRP £17.99

    Musicians have long proven to be a well of inspiration for film makers, and so it proves again with director Anton Corbjn?s telling of the story of Ian Curtis and Joy Division, Control. Based on the book of the same name, the first of Control's many successes is to make prior knowledge of the subject matter unnecessary. And while music is an important part of the film, the movie ultimately focuses in on the relationship between Curtis and his wife, Deborah. It?s a moving and emotional rollercoaster, and one realised with exceptional skill and grace by Sam Riley and the ever-astonishing Samantha Morton in the lead acting roles. The former is someone very much to watch, the latter is surely long overdue an Oscar. Credit too must go to director Corbjn, though, who builds up Control with diligence and discipline. He shapes a musical biopic that distinguishes itself from its numerous contemporaries, and while it perhaps doesn?t spend enough time with the Joy Division side of the story, it?s a film that?s otherwise hard to fault. Control, ultimately, not only managed to sidestep many of the contrivances of the genre, but it also offers a raw, electric and emotional experience, and proved to be one of 2007?s finest films. Don?t miss it. --Jon Foster

  • Cider With Rosie [DVD] Cider With Rosie | DVD | (28/09/2015) from £6.85  |  Saving you £13.14 (65.70%)  |  RRP £19.99

  • Morvern Callar [2002] Morvern Callar | DVD | (21/07/2003) from £3.99  |  Saving you £16.00 (80.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Eerie, morbid, yet somehow life-affirming, Morvern Callar stars the superb Samantha Morton (Sweet and Lowdown, Minority Report) as the title character, a young Scottish woman whose boyfriend has just killed himself, leaving behind a cassette of assorted songs and an unpublished novel. Instead of reporting his death, Morvern puts her name on his novel before sending it off to a publisher, then uses the dead man's bank card to pay for a trip to Spain with her friend Lana (Kathleen McDermott), where she tries to lose herself in sensation and chaos. The events of Morvern Callar suggest a story, but director Lynn Ramsay (Ratcatcher) focuses on moments of ambiguity and ambivalence between the sequences of dramatic action--and when Morvern does take decisive action, her choices are unnerving. The movie's striking images and rich use of colour vividly capture a dislocated state of mind, when life has come unmoored from meaning. --Bret Fetzer

The two men form an unlikely bond that is threatened when one of the officers finds himself drawn to a young widow (Samantha Morton) setting off an ethical dilemma that plays out in touching and surprising ways.

On the DVD: Minority Report on disc brings up Janusz Kaminski's wonderfully subdued cinematography in an ideal anamorphic widescreen print. John Williams's Bernard Herrmann-esque score is the major beneficiary of Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS sound options. There is no commentary, and the movie plus everything on the second disc, which contains five short featurettes and an archive of text and visual material, could probably have been squeezed onto just one disc. The featurettes are: "From Story to Screen", "Deconstructing Minority Report", "The Stunts of Minority Report", "ILM and Minority Report" and "Final Report: Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise". There are subtitles in English and Scandinavian languages. --Mark Walker
