Last month’s Sky Cinema catalogue was a pretty concise package with their catalogue chock full of great films perfect for Black History Month and Halloween. Some of my favourites included Just Mercy, Waves, and The Lighthouse. Sky Cinema in November 2020, however, is a little more eclectic.
There’s a sprinkle of horror including the sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep. Some great dramas such as Ash Is Purest White and Jojo Rabbit. Plus a (what I would call an early) Christmas film in Last Christmas. What does this mean? There’s something for everyone! Grab your family and friends and tuck into this month’s list of fantastic films on Sky Cinema.
