Yellowstone: Season 1 – 3

The modern-day Western suspense drama series led by Kevin Costner finally lands in Aotearoa. As Dominic Corry states in this extensive why-you-need-to-binge-this piece, “it’s a series boasting great pedigree from its stars to its writer-director.”

The Good Lord Bird

Ethan Hawke leads this limited series adaptation of James McBridge’s award-winning novel about an enslaved teenager (Joshua Caleb Johnson-Lionel) who becomes a member in abolitionist John Brown’s (Hawke) motley crew during the Bleeding Kansas era before the Civil War.

Capone

Tom Hardy is Al Capone in this crime biopic exploring the later years of the infamous gangster’s life, where those around him are unsure if he has dementia or if it’s all just an act.

Streaming from 6 January

Queen & Slim

Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith play two strangers on a first date who kill a cop in self-defence, forcing them to go on the run.”It’s the kind of feature debut I hope funding bodies continue to take chances on,” Amanda Jane Robinson urged in her review.

Streaming from 13 January

The Legend of Baron To’a

In this Kiwi action-comedy, a Tongan entrepreneur returns to his old neighbourhood and inadvertently causes the theft of his late father’s valued pro wrestling title belt. Failing to retrieve it, his only choice is to embrace his father’s legacy. In short, it’s “a kick-ass crack-up” Steve Newall praised.
