Amazon Prime has been adding a long list of films for its subscribers. There are some interesting titles coming to the streaming channel this week.

1. The Twilight Saga (2008)

The famous vampire human love story The Twilight Saga made stars out of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Bella is a young college going girl weirdly attracted to classmate Edward. It is later revealed that Edward is a vampire almost a century old. The romantic story has had its share of controversies, yet for the romantic story lovers it is a classic. Kristen and Robert were dating during the film’s shoot, but broke off after Kristen had an affair.

 

2. Rabbit Hole (2011)

This Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart starrer is a couple’s story on how they are dealing with the loss of their young son. Based on a play by the same name, the film is well known for the performances of its lead actors, including an Academy Award and Golden Globe nomination for Nicole. Though the film received positive responses, the director of the 2010 play Robert Norman felt it lacked humour and hopefulness of the play script.

3. V for Vendetta (2005)

The famous DC comic limited series turned into a dystopian political thriller film. Thanks to its political content, the filmmakers said that it is meant to raise questions rather than providing any answers. It also dealt with the issues of homosexuality, Islamophobia and terrorism. Starring Natalie Portman, Hugo Weaving, Stephen Rea and John Hurt, the film is directed by James McTeigue. Margaret Thatcher was the inspiration behind the fascist British police state in the film.

4. Letters to Juliet (2010)

The romantic drama film stars Amanda Seyfried, Christopher Egan, Vanessa Redgrave, Gael García Bernal, and Franco Nero among others. Amanda plays Sophie who goes with her fiancé for a pre-honeymoon, but that travel marks the end of the relationship. She instead finds letters to Juliet and ventures out to have Claire (the letters’ writer) unite with her lover. That she falls for her grandson in the process is a different story altogether. The Juliet Letter Service is a real thing in Italy.

5. A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)

Directed by Steven Spielberg, the film depicts the reality that may exist in the late 22nd century wherein global warming has wiped out coastal cities across the globe. A child humanoid David wants to become a human child so that he can get the love of his foster human mother. It is based on a story written in 1969, but the film has captured a lot of realities that we have to face today or are gearing up to face.
