Amazon Prime Video offers a selection of films to enjoy

Sometimes you need a break from the TV shocking I know but Amazon Prime has a stack of films to enjoy.

There was a film that came to the service in June called The Souvenir

A young film student in the early ’80s becomes romantically involved with a complicated and untrustworthy man.

This one stars Honor Swinton Byrne as Julie Tom Burke as Anthony and Tilda Swinton as Rosalind.

Some other films that are well worth checking out on Prime include

Late Night

A late-night talk show host’s world is turned upside down when she hires her first and only female staff writer. Originally intended to smooth over diversity concerns, her decision brings about unexpectedly hilarious consequences as the two women who are separated by culture and generation become united by their love of a biting punchline.
This one stars Emma Thompson  Mindy Kaling and John Lithgow.

Last Christmas

Nothing seems to go right for young Kate, a frustrated Londoner who works as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop. But things soon take a turn for the better when she meets Tom — a handsome charmer who seems too good to be true. As the city transforms into the most wonderful time of the year, Tom and Kate’s growing attraction turns into the best gift of all — a Yuletide romance.
This one stars Emila Clarke, Emma Thompson and Henry Golding

The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee 17 July

Originally slated for cinema release in April and following the unprecedented closure of movie theaters with the COVID-19 outbreak, The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee will be premiering exclusively on Prime Video in Australia.

Starring as a fictionalised version of himself, The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee sees Paul Hogan enjoying a quiet life and all the perks of retirement in Brentwood, California, but he can’t seem to stay out of the headlines. When his granddaughter Lucy (Charlotte Stent) finds out he’s been offered a knighthood for services to comedy and tells all her friends, Paul reluctantly accepts the offer and has six weeks to stay out of trouble before the ceremony. But wherever Paul goes, trouble follows, and we see Paul’s reputation hilariously put through the wringer no matter how  close he gets to his important meeting with his biggest Royal fan.

Joining Paul in his new adventure is a star-studded cast including comedy legend’s John Cleese (Monty Python, A Fish Called Wanda) and Chevy Chase (National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Fletch), the beloved Olivia Newton-John (Grease), Aussie favourites Shane Jacobson (Kenny, Oddball), Julia Morris (House Husbands), Rachael Carpani (McLeod’s Daughters), as well as comedy stars including Jim Jefferies (The Jim Jefferies Show), Reggie VelJohnson (Die Hard), and Wayne Knight (Seinfeld, Jurassic Park)
