Hell or High Water

Rent from £3.45

This excellent modern Western has scored various Oscar nods including Best Original Screenplay, and stars Chris Pine and Ben Foster as a pair of bank-robbing brothers – with Jeff Bridges as the Texas Ranger on their tail.

The Girl on the Train

Rent from £3.45

This BAFTA nominee, adapted from Paula Hawkins’ gripping bestselling novel, stars Emily Blunt as a lonely and unstable divorcee who becomes entangled in a murder case. Blunt gives a fantastic performance in a psychological thriller that’ll keep you guessing.

The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Tour Years

Rent from £1.99

Director Ron Howard enlists a wealth of absorbing archive footage and new interviews to examine The Beatles’ hectic four-year tour during the 1960s. It was a period that would firmly establish a cultural phenomenon forever known as “Beatlemania”.

Under the Shadow

Rent from £3.45

A contender for Best British Film at this year’s BAFTAs, this Farsi-language horror offers its chills through dark suggestion rather than dumbed-down scares (although it’s certainly not without its jumps along the way). The result is chilling.

Kubo and the Two Strings

Rent from £3.45

Set off on a truly unique adventure in this mesmerising animation about a young boy’s quest to locate a magical suit of armor worn by his late father to defeat a vengeful spirit. The film joins a strong shortlist for the Animated Feature Film Oscar.

The Lobster

Rent from £3.49

Set in a dystopian society where single people have 45 days to find true love or face being turned into an animal and released into the woods, this film is both bizarre and brilliant in equal measure. It’s likely you haven’t seen one quite like it.

Fire At Sea

Rent from £1.99

This poignant documentary has already won some top awards since its release – can it clinch an Oscar, too? Focusing on the European migrant crisis by capturing life on the Italian island of Lampedusa, this is a must-see film with a powerful message.
