I watched a really good movie the other day on Amazon Prime called "The Bookshop". It was very good!

Have you seen any good movies or TV shows that you would recommend?

"Unstoppable"  starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pine, and Rosario Dawson.  There was another movie with the same name that was quite different.

Is The Bookshop anything like  The Coffee Shop?   <G>  

Thanks for suggesting!   I have made a note to check it out on Amazon Prime.    

I really like the streaming provider  *ACORN TV*.  The cost is under $10 a month for excellent programming. 

Right now I have been watching the  Documentary Series  * The Yorkshire Vet *  which is the practice from 

All Things Great and Small in England.  Warning: A bit graphic surgery scenes but I find it all interesting.  

 Keep Calm and Stream On,  CAT

Amazon Prime:
1. The Americans (multi-seasons, ended)
2. Bosch (multi-seasons, I think there will be one more)
3. The Boys (in its second season). HOWEVER, it is bloody and profane, though great satire.

I love animal shows of all kinds! I haven't subscribed to Acorn or BritBox, but I may still consider getting one or the other, as I love British programming.

We watched a wonderful film recently on Prime. It was the 1999 version of a Terrence Rattigan play called The Winslow Boy. There had been another film in the '40's which was good but the later version is superb. David Mamet wrote the screenplay and directed. Nigel Hawthorn, Gemma Jones, Jeremy Northup and other fine actors make up the cast. Highly recommended.

Another recent, I believe on Hulu (these things move around), is called Hunt for the Wilderpeople. It's an indie made in New Zealand starring Sam Neill. He and his wife take in a homeless Maori boy who's been in the system. Things happen. It's very funny and touching at the same time. A most unusual film. We enjoyed it very much indeed.

I came across The Winslow Boy and thought I might like it, so with your recommendation I'm inclined to watch it now. 

I'll check Hulu for that other one. I don't think I've come across it.

Both are very special. I hope you enjoy them.

I had another thought. Prime had all of the episodes of the 1981 mini-series of Brideshead Revistied with Jeremy Irons and Anthony Andrews. If they still have it, I cannot recommend it strongly enough. The dialogue and narration are taken straight from the book. It's a beautiful story and wonderfully done. There's a movie of the book which is on Prime, too. Avoid at all costs.
