2

Here are some of the best offerings coming to Amazon Prime in November, so grab the snacks and enjoy some quality viewing with friends and loved ones.

You Were Never Really Here

Halloween may be over, but there are plenty of gripping horror stories still to come this month. You Were Never Really Here is a 2017 psychological thriller written and directed by Lynne Ramsay.

Based on the 2013 novella of the same name by Jonathan Ames, it stars Joaquin Phoenix as Joe, a traumatised veteran who tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job spins out of control, Joe's nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered, leading to what could be either his death or his awakening.

 

The Revenant

More commonly known as that film where Leonardo DiCaprio gets into a fistfight with a bear, The Revenant is a 2015 American semi-biographical epic western film directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu.

The inspiration behind the flick was in part Michael Punke's 2002 novel of the same name, which described frontiersman Hugh Glass's experiences in 1823. The novel was in turn based on the 1915 poem The Song of Hugh Glass.

The epic movie follows DiCaprio as a frontiersman on a fur trading expedition in the 1820s, who is left to fight for survival after being mauled by a bear and abandoned by members of his own hunting team.

Homecoming Shaping up to be Amazon’s answer to The Haunting of Hill House, Homecoming is an American psychological thriller series, based on the podcast of the same name created by Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg.

Starring Julia Roberts as Heidi Bergman in the lead role, the series follows her life and her job at Homecoming, a facility that helps soldiers transition into civilian life.

Years later she has started a new life of her own, but when the Department of Defense questions why she left Homecoming, Heidi realises there's a whole other story behind the one she's been telling herself.

Cruel Intentions

A true classic, Cruel Intentions is a 1999 American teen drama starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon and Selma Blair. The film is actually an adaptation of Les Liaisons Dangereuses, which was written by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos in 1782. However, this remake is set amongst wealthy teenagers attending high school in New York City instead of way back in 18th century France.

The story follows two vicious step-siblings attending an elite Manhattan prep school, who make a wager with each other to deflower the new headmaster's daughter before the start of term. The film was a huge box office success and inspired several sequels and a straight-to-TV movie.
