Hala, Apple TV

Focusing on the story of Hala, a 17-year-old American Muslim, this new coming-of-age drama is a brilliant watch. Struggling to balance her traditional Muslim household and her identity at school as she explores her individuality, the teenager discovers a secret that threatens to destroy everything around her. Executively produced by Jada Pinkett Smith, the film was an official selection of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival and 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.

The Danish Girl, Netflix 

This fictionalised biopic of transgender artist Lili Elbe stars Eddie Redmayne in the title role and is well worth a watch. Redmayne received much acclaim for his thought-provoking portrayal of the troubled artist and Alicia Vikander, playing Gerda (the woman married to Lili), does an extraordinary job of depicting the growing loneliness she feels as her husband all but vanishes in front of her. Dark and complex themes run throughout and sexuality, identity and performance all interplay amidst scenes of love, bravery and turmoil.

The Witcher, Netflix

If you enjoyed Game of Thrones, this new series from Netflix might soon become your new go-to. Starring Henry Cavill, it follows the story of Geralt of Rivia – a mutated monster-hunter for hire – who journeys toward his destiny in a turbulent world full of sorcery, secrets and sex. It’s set to be an epic saga, with dark fantasy themes, full-scale battle scenes and plenty of interesting relationships. Apparently Cavill had to get up at 3am each morning to be transformed into Geralt for filming - we can’t wait to see how the Superman actor portrays his new character.

Starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver, this heartfelt story of a broken marriage depicts the complex relationship between love and hate. It follows Nicole (Johansson) and Charlie (Driver) as they embark on a separation, calling on  the help of two lawyers to determine who will receive sole custody of their son.
