Cruella

Co-produced by the UK and filmed in London’s Soho, this Disney+ prequel (of sorts) is high-camp, high-drama and highly-recommended. The costumes, created by British Oscar-winner Jenny Beavan, are astonishing, while a cast of talented UK actors - Emma Thompson, Mark Strong, Emily Beecham and Kirby Howell-Baptiste - complement a devilishly-good lead performance from Emma Stone.
