HBO Max will eventually feature a library of more than 2,000 films within the first year, but one of the movies streaming now is the superb Doctor Sleep. In ca se you missed it in cinemas last year, then you can catch it as well as the director’s cut. Clocking in at 3 hours, this sequel to Stephen King’s “The Shining,” is about the troubled, now-adult Dan Torrance (Ewan McGregor) who meets a teen who shares his extrasensory gift of the “shine” and tries to protect her from a cult whose members feed off the shine of innocents to become immortal.
The movie is directed by Mike Flanagan along with a fantastic score by The Newton Brothers.
