A thriller as tense as they come, this action-packed mystery movie follows three lighthouse keepers stationed on a remote Scottish island. We always understood lighthouses keep trouble away, but that doesn’t seem to have worked here!





Available to rent from May 10th on Virgin Movies from €4.99


It’s a film that was on everyone’s lips throughout award season – and it certainly lives up to the hype! Yorgos Lanthinos’ historical comedy is as gloriously bonkers as you’d expect, the whole thing looks sumptuous, and the performances – most notable from Oscar winning Olivia Colman – are something to write home about!






Available to rent from May 13th on Virgin Movies from €4.99


The life of the French writer is told in absorbing fashion, with Keira Knightley in extraordinary form. Her connection with on-screen partner Dominic West is certainly the trump card of this period masterpiece, though everything from the stylish sets to the lush score is worthy of acclaim…





Available to rent from May 20th on Virgin Movies from €4.99


This heartbreaking family drama tells the story of a young man’s battle with addiction. Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet are wonderful in the central roles, while the story doesn’t pull its emotional punches. Get the tissues in before watching this one!

A few sentences could never sum up this slice of sublime, spacey weirdness – and in truth, it’s best you don’t know what you’re in for either! Ostensibly, it’s the story of a soccer player embarking on a surreal quest – but from spoof to satire and sci-fi to Dali-style surrealism, this one is an absolute trip!





Available to rent from May 27th on Virgin Movies from €4.99


This gritty thriller is as uncompromising and unabashed as it gets – and nowhere is that made as clear as in the staggering lead performance of Nicole Kidman. It’s not all about power either, though; lashings of style and smart scripting play a part too, in a noir detective drama to be cherished.
