New Family Films Trending On Demand
May 2021 sees two new additions to the streaming platforms for the family to enjoy.
Things are looking spotty for Emma Stone in her role as ‘Cruella’ in the role of the titled character from the ‘101 Dalmatians’ franchise.
Directed by Craig Gillespie (Fright Night, I), the film sees Cruella in her origin story and finding her way into the fashion industry.
Critics have said that the picture is “Sinisterly superb, this is a well-crafted, phenomenally acted, artistically drenched triumph that’s a whole lot more responsible than most other villain-as-main-character films“.
You can watch ‘Cruella’ now on Disney Plus.
Meanwhile in the realm of fairy tale lore, Directors Guillermo del Toro and Mark Gustafson tackle the classic story ‘Pinocchio’.
Starring Gregory Man in the title role alongside Ewan McGregor as Jiminy Cricket, the film takes a more darker approach embedded in it’s traditional roots from the 1883 novel by Carlo Collodi.
The film was originally released in 2019 within Italy but has reached a wider expanse by being made available on demand.
Critics say “A beautiful and cleverly crafted piece which manages to be a faithful return to Collodi’s original tale and very much the director’s own take.”
You can watch ‘Pinocchio’ now on Stan.
