Wintry films to add to your must-watch list

 

The very best thing about the onset of winter is the scope it brings for guilt-free hibernation. All we want to do is snuggle up under our duvets and watch some seriously wintry movies. So, what needs to be on your watch list?

 

COOL RUNNINGS

The ultimate underdog story, this feelgood film sees a Jamaican bobsleigh team fight many odds, including a reluctant coach, to compete in the 1988 Winter Olympics. And, while it features a sport that chills us to our bones, the story of Cool Runnings is guaranteed to warm your heart, too. You can rent this film through Amazon Prime.

 

THE SECRET GARDEN

In this classic tale for all ages, a spoiled young girl finds herself transformed when she uncovers a secret garden which has been neglected and hidden for years. Slowly but surely, the magic of the outdoors winds its spell upon her and the entire household. The Secret Garden is available to stream on Netflix.

 

HOLD THE DARK

Retired naturalist and wolf expert Russell Core journeys to the edge of civilization in northern Alaska at the pleading of Medora Slone, a young mother whose son was killed by a pack of wolves. As Core attempts to help Medora track down the wolves who took her son, a strange and dangerous relationship develops between the two lonely souls. But then Medora’s husband Vernon returns home from the Iraq War, igniting a terrifyingly violent chain of events. Hold The Dark is available to stream on Netflix.

 

THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE

Snow! Turkish delight! Lions and fauns and ice queens! What’s not to love about this long, lush, lovely fantasy? Grab your furriest coat and step inside the wardrobe with Lucy, Peter, Susan, and Edmund Pevensie, and experience the magic all over again. The film is available to rent on Amazon Prime.

 

MARCH OF THE PENGUINS

What could be more wintry than a feature-length documentary which follows the Emperor Penguins of the South Pole as they journey through the awe-inspiring Antarctic scenery to complete an age-old mating ritual?  March Of The Penguins is available to rent on Amazon Prime.
