Celluloid Streams: What to watch this week

We're back with another selection of films available to stream from home.

Minding the Gap (15) - BBC iPlayer

Bing Liu's documentary was the toast of Sheffield Doc/Fest in 2018 and went on to be nominated for an Oscar. Rightly so. His feature debut is a coming-of-age tale of three friends growing up in America's Rust Belt. Watch trailer here.

My Life as A Courgette (PG) - All4

While Céline Sciamma is rightly receiving plaudits for her latest film, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, everything she's done so far has been great. That's not just her own films. She also wrote the screenplay for Claude Barras' wonderful stop motion comedy-drama. Watch trailer here.

Pond Life (15) - NOW TV

Set just outside of Doncaster, Bill Buckhurst's drama is a story of young friendship and growing up in a world trapped between two eras. It was sadly overlooked on release and deserves to reach a wider audience. Watch trailer here.

Bumblebee (PG) - All4

The Transformers films are, quite frankly, pretty dreadful. The first one's ok but they rapidly descended into a high-speed headache-inducing mess. Bumblebee, on the other hand, is an absolute marvel. Watch trailer here.

Appropriate Behaviour (15) - Prime

Set in New York, Desiree Akhavan's dry comedy drama is just the antidote you need to mainstream rom-coms. Watch trailer here.

Charlie Bartlett (15) - Netflix

The sad passing of Anton Yelchin in 2016 deprived the world of one of its best young actors. He gives one of his best performances in Jon Poll's comedy-drama. Watch trailer here.
