With the majority of the UK self-isolating or working from home during the coronavirus outbreak, Amazon Prime Video’s sizeable library of movies and TV shows is a useful resource for keeping entertained. But before you start bingeing through the line-up, don’t miss out on catching up with some modern gems before their rights expire.
This is your last chance to stream the following with Amazon Prime UK:

Gemma Arterton and Sally Hawkins are superb in this winning tale of female factory workers fighting for equal pay.

Margot at the Wedding – 30th June

Scorsese’s energetic dive into organised crime is a thrilling ride laced with brutally dark irony.

When a reformed jewel thief is suspected of returning to his former occupation, he must ferret out the real thief in order to prove his innocence. Alfred Hitchcock. Gracy Kelly. Cary Grant. What more could you want?
Four Weddings and a Funeral – 30th June
“Is it still raining? … I hadn’t noticed.” Richard Curtis’ portrait of 30-somethings trying to find their way through love is a wonderfully funny and adorably earnest affair.
Days of Heaven – 30th June
Terrence Malick’s 1978 classic follows a young steelworker who accidentally kills his boss at the turn of the century and goes on the run with his girlfriend and little sister.
Side Effects – 4th July
Steven Soderbergh’s entertaining pharma-conspiracy thriller should come with its own warning label.
Robot & Frank – 4th July
Frank Langella is wonderful in this smart, sweet look at ageing, memory, death… and robots.
Philomena – 6th July

Paddington 2 – 11th July
This flawless family comedy sequel will make you laugh, cry and fall in love with Hugh Grant.

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence are on superb form in David O’Russell’s drama.
Community: Season 1 to 6 – 14th July
Created by Dan Harmon, Community is the story of a dysfunctional study group at a community college. Over six seasons, it became a modern classic of surrealism, pop-culture parodies and ludicrous plotlines – if you’ve never seen it, don’t miss your chance.
The Wrestler – 14th July
A return to form for Mickey Rourke and Darren Aronofsky, The Wrestler is a beautifully crafted film.
Frost/Nixon – 14th July
This thrilling close-up of a presidency being derailed makes for sublime cinema.
