Knives Out to Honey Boy – our pick of Home Ent films for your quarantine needs

Even the introverts are starting to chafe a little at staying indoors, but never fear: we’ve got a list of the best films out on Home Entertainment for you to enjoy. So whether you’re quarantined with family, roommates or all by your lonesome, we’ve got a film for everyone and every mood.

Knives Out

Rian Johnson’s acclaimed whodunnit stars a veritable who’s who of Hollywood from Jamie Lee Curtis to Michael Shannon to Chris Evans, Toni Colette, Daniel Craig, and his Bond co-star Ana de Armas. Join nurse Marta as she helps the suspect-Southern-accented Detective Benoit Blanc to solve the mystery of the murder of murder-mystery writer Harlan Thrombey – every family member is a suspect. On Blu-ray, DVD & digital now.

The Perfect Candidate

Haifaa Al-Mansour is Saudi Arabia’s first female film director, and her latest offering follows Maryam (Mila Al-Zahrani), a dedicated young doctor who decides to run for a local council position – unheard of for a woman in Saudi. This warm-hearted, inspirational drama centres community spirit and an admirable dedication to helping people simply because you can: a perfect viewing candidate for these troubled times. On digital now.

Honey Boy

Shia LaBeouf’s semi-autobiographical drama is based on his own childhood as a child-star and his subsequent issues with alcohol abuse and recovery in rehab. LaBeouf plays his own alcoholic father, with Lucas Hedges and Noah Jupe playing versions of himself. Director Alma Har’el leads this talented cast perfectly, and brings to life this painful story to incredible cathartic effect. On digital now.

Charlie’s Angels

What better way to spend a quarantined evening than watching Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska kick some ass? It’s not going to win any awards, but for girls’ night on Zoom this is the perfect flick. Grab a glass of wine and enjoy the action as Elizabeth Banks returns and helms this franchise reboot, spy extravaganza complete with ridiculously far-fetched plot and fabulous costume changes. On Blu-ray & DVD April 6.

Jumanji: The Next Level

Lad’s night needs some movie action too and we’ve got you covered: this reboot sequel doesn’t quite hit as well as the first one, but Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan and Jack Black still bring the laughs. This time the video-gamers are joined by Danny DeVito, Danny Glover and Awkwafina as they must save one of their own in the deadliest game yet. On digital 4 April, and Blu-ray 13 April.
