Netflix’s biggest original film of the month arrived last week, and what an enjoyable romp it is.

Adding yet another fresh twist to a familiar story, Enola Holmes focuses on Sherlock’s younger sister, played by Millie Bobby Brown of Stranger Things fame.

Brown has an infectious likeability and although the material seems more like a particularly high quality BBC period drama, it all zips along merrily, hopefully whetting the appetite for a sequel.

Henry Cavill plays Sherlock with Helena Bonham Carter taking the role of their mother in a mystery that encompasses votes for women and tongue in cheek sleuthing. Prime viewing for a rainy Sunday afternoon.

On the big screen at Kinokulture this weekend we have the well-received live action version of Pinocchio from Italian director Matteo Garrone.

By all accounts a return to the original story that ignores Disney’s child friendly animated version. If you enjoy the works of directors like Guillermo del Toro or Tim Burton, I think you’ll find much to enjoy in this grown up take on a familiar story.

Amazon Prime members have some great options to watch for free right now, no-members can pay to stream these choices too. Journalist and writer Caitlin Moran’s brilliant semi-autobiographical novel, How to Build a Girl, has been turned into an enjoyably breezy coming of age film that will entertain anyone who was a moody NME reading teenager in the 1980s.

US actor Beanie Feldstein does a surprisingly good Black Country accent as the star of the story, and there’s excellent support from Paddy Consindine as her jazz loving dad. Also for free on Prime is Keira Knightley in true life GCHQ whistle-blower story Official Secrets and Rosamund Pike in the Marie Curie biopic Radioactive, both low key dramas that failed to score at the box office.
