Autumn is in the air, but before the sun can disappear out of sight, it’s got some competition from a flock of Amazon Prime Video titles, which are racing over the horizon as their streaming rights expire. From spooky horror and intensely performed drama, this month is your last chance to stream the following on Amazon Prime Video UK:
Flight – 23rd September
Denzel Washington soars in this worthy drama about an alcoholic pilot struggling to deal with the aftermath of a plane crash.
Lion – 27th September
Dev Patel is sensational in this powerfully moving drama about a five-year-old Indian boy, who gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, thousands of kilometers from home. 25 years later, after being adopted by a family in Australia, he sets out to find his lost family.
Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark – 30th September
Katie Holmes and Guy Pearce star as the parents of a young girl who finds the family’s new mansion is also home to critters in the basement that only come out when the lights are off. Guillermo Del Toro’s co-written script keeps the kids’ perspective creepily convincing, while Troy Nixey’s direction plays on moving shadows with genuinely spooky tension.
The Girl on the Train – 6th October
Emily Blunt is excellent in this uneven adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ gripping novel.
