British summertime isn’t renowned for non-stop sun. But if your barbeque plans end up getting rained off, there’s always an on-demand film to keep you entertained.
With an eclectic mix of Eighties throwbacks, thrilling dramas and family classics, Amazon Prime has a wide selection of films to distract from the June drizzle.
