HBO’s His Dark Materials and everything else streaming on NEON this November

NEON’s November line-up includes another big HBO series as well as some recent Oscar winners and one of the year’s most successful original films. Here are six highlights for the month followed by everything else coming to the streaming service.

His Dark Materials

Starring the likes of James McAvoy (Split), Ruth Wilson (TV’s Luther), Lin-Manuel Miranda (Mary Poppins Returns), and Logan‘s breakout star Dafne Keen, HBO’s adaptation of the renowned fantasy novels follows a parallel world where science, theology and magic are entwined.

Episode directors include Otto Bathurst (last year’s Robin Hood) and Oscar-winner Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech).

Streaming from 5 November

The Favourite

Two cousins (Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone) jockey for influence and power during the reign of Queen Anne (Olivia Colman, who scored an Oscar and Golden Globe for her performance) in this political comedy-drama from the Oscar-nominated director of The Lobster.

“A strange, twisted and darkly funny love story that is truly one of a kind.” -Katie Parker, FLICKS

Streaming from 7 November

The Sisters Brothers

Western dark comedy and Jacques Audiard’s follow-up to his Palme D’Or-winning Dheepan. Stars John C. Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix star as brothers (surname Sisters).

“Audiard’s storytelling has an easy swing to it, his dialogue is garrulous and unsentimental, and the narrative is exotically offbeat.” -THE GUARDIAN

Streaming from 11 November


Oscar-winning filmmaker Jordan Peele follows his debut feature Get Out with another critically acclaimed horror-thriller, following a family on holiday confronted by murderous strangers who look just like them.

“Even if the film doesn’t hang together in the moment as tightly as one might prefer, it fires up our synapses in the aftermath” -Aaron Yap, FLICKS

Streaming from 19 November

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Melissa McCarthy earned an Oscar nomination playing literary fraudster Lee Israel in this biopic from the director of The Diary of a Teenage Girl. Based on Israel’s memoir and co-starring fellow Oscar nominee Richard E Grant.

“Deftly and sensitively directed by Marielle Heller, the pace, narrative and visuals of this wonderfully understated film combine in perfect complementary balance with both McCarthy and Grant’s exceptional performances” -Sarah Voon, FLICKS

Streaming from 29 November

They Shall Not Grow Old

Peter Jackson directs this WWI documentary featuring never-before-seen black-n-white footage that’s been digitally coloured to commemorate the centennial of the war’s end.

“This digitalised revamping is unlike anything I’ve seen before—certainly not as simple as clicking a ‘turn on the colour’ button.” -Liam Maguren, FLICKS

Streaming from 29 November
