Trackers: Season 1

This sprawling action series set in South Africa follows three intersecting storylines that clash with organised crime rinks, diamond smugglers, Black Rhinos, CIA, state security and international terrorism.

The Farewell

Awkwafina scored herself a Golden Globe for her performance in writer-director Lulu Wang’s Sundance hit about a Chinese family who keep their terminally ill matriarch in the dark about her prognosis. In his 5-star review, Aaron Yap gushed: “Wang possesses a terrific, patient eye and an economical touch with story, and is supported by perhaps the most lovable and joyous ensemble you’ll see this year.”

Streaming on Neon from 10 June

Ad Astra

Brad Pitt travels the galaxy for his missing father (Tommy Lee Jones) and learns about a mysterious threat to humanity in this grand sci-fi from the director of The Lost City of Z. Co-starring Oscar nominee Ruth Negga (Loving) and the great Donald Sutherland, Flicks editor Steve Newall praised the film in his review: “It looks spectacular, ratchets up the tension in multiple action scenes, had me utterly captivated for something like its last 20 or 30 minutes and left with plenty to ponder.”

Streaming on Neon from 25 June

Rialto Film Collection

Rialto delivers another collection of arthouse cinema so staggering, you could host a mini-film festival in your own home. The line-up includes Hirokazu Kore-eda’s 5-star Palme d’Or-winner Shoplifters, the “scrupulously lean” real-time one-location thriller The Guilty, the “darkly downbeat” Bill Nighy oddity Sometimes Always Never, and master French filmmaker Claire Denis’ sci-fi High Life.

Streaming on Neon from 4 June
