Catch the latest new releases at home
There's no better way to show mum how much she means to you, than by spending quality time. While we can't head to the cinema, you can enjoy new release films across a variety of digital platforms, including Apple TV app/ iTunes, Fetch, Foxtel Store, Google Play, Microsoft Store, PlayStation Store and Telstra TV Box Office.

Check out our top picks below and make Mother's Day extra cosy with a movie night-IN!

Little Women: Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author's alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig's take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms -- is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.

 

Ride Like a Girl: As a little girl, Michelle Payne (Teresa Palmer) dreams of the impossible: winning the Melbourne Cup — horse-racing's toughest two-mile race. The youngest of 10 children, Michelle is raised by single father Paddy (Sam Neill).

She leaves school at 15 to become a jockey and after early failures she finds her feet, but a family tragedy, followed by her own near fatal horse fall all but ends the dream. But with the love of her dad and her brother Stevie, Michelle will not give up. Against all the medical advice, and the protests of her siblings, she rides on, and meets the Prince of Penzance. Together they overcome impossible odds for a shot at the dream: a ride in the 2015 Melbourne Cup, at odds of 100 to 1. The rest is history.

Ride Like A Girl is the incredible true story of Michelle Payne.

 

Charlies Angels: A team of female private agents, popularly known as Charlie's Angels, are tasked by their mysterious boss to expose an international conspiracy to weaponise an energy conservation device.

Cats: A tribe of cats compete during the annual Jellicle Ball, where one lucky feline will be chosen to ascend to the Heaviside Layer and be granted a new life.

 

Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears: Detective Phryne Fisher embarks on a globe-trotting adventure to uncover priceless treasures, wartime secrets and an ancient tomb that holds a terrible curse.
