Wintry films to add to your must-watch list
The very best thing about the onset of winter is the scope it brings for guilt-free hibernation. All we want to do is snuggle up under our duvets and watch some seriously wintry movies. So, what needs to be on your watch list?
The ultimate underdog story, this feelgood film sees a Jamaican bobsleigh team fight many odds, including a reluctant coach, to compete in the 1988 Winter Olympics. And, while it features a sport that chills us to our bones, the story of Cool Runnings is guaranteed to warm your heart, too. You can rent this film through Amazon Prime.
