SVOD service Film Movement Plus is offering a 30-day free trial and 50% off the first month of membership “…to help break the stay-at-home boredom and to entice consumers.” FM+ has a growing library of more than 450 feature films, documentaries and shorts, all of which are award-winners from around the globe and prestigious film festivals, according to the company. The service aims to deliver absorbing entertainment for cinema aficionados, with 24/7 availability across all devices and platforms.

This month, FM+ is also premiering two digitally restored classics: the ’80s-era British comedy Gregory’s Girl from Local Hero director Bill Forsyth, and The Fate of Lee Khan, the high-flying wuxia film from trailblazing Chinese director King Hu. You can also see Winter Flies this month, a teen road-trip dramedy and winner of four Czech Lions, and the Israeli drama Policeman from Nadav Lapid and Corinth Films.

Take in the digitally restored Gregory’s Girl, a quirky, endearing ’80s-era comedy – one of the most loved British Films of all time – from Glasgow-born Local Hero director Bill Forsyth.

Two young boys hit the road for mischievous adventure in Olmo Omerzu’s award-winning coming-of-age road trip dramedy, Winter Flies, winner of four Czech Lion Awards and Czechoslovakia’s Official Oscar Submission for “Best International Film” in 2019.

The debut of director Nadav Lapid, Policeman, filmed prior to the Israeli protests of 2011, is a dual story told from both the point of view of an Israeli counter-terrorism unit and a band of young revolutionaries determined to politicize Israel’s growing class divide.

Commemorate the April 29th birthday of the late King Hu, the trailblazing Chinese filmmaker – the foremost genius of the high-flying, sword-swinging wuxia film – with The Fate of Lee Khan, the legendary 1973 martial arts masterpiece, a follow-up to A Touch of Zen, and now digitally restored for North American audiences.
