7 Kate Winslet Movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney+ Hotstar You Can Watch
1. Titanic – Disney+ Hotstar
Let’s just go Titanic right off our list. Undoubtedly one of the most popular films not only in Kate’s filmography, but also in modern cinema itself, Titanic will always remain a cult classic of our generation. Released in 1997, Titanic, directed by James Cameron, also starring Leonardo Di Caprio. The story is a fictional retelling of the infamous Titanic accident in 1912. The film focuses on a young couple – Jack and Rose – on board who not only try to survive, but also help save many passengers. Celine Dion’s Every night in my dreams is still one of the best songs in a movie and is just another reason for you to see this epic.
2. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – Netflix
From an absolute blockbuster to a twisted and unpredictable love story, Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind maybe not for everyone. But Kate Winslet stars in this crazy love story in reverse that also stars Jim Carrey. Written by Charlie Kauffman, the story follows two people, Joel Barish and Clementine Kruczynski (Carrey and Winslet), who are polar opposites but unintentionally attracted to each other. They decide to erase all bad memories from their two-year relationship, which ends up being a messy job.
3. Revolutionary Road – Amazon Prime Video
The couple Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet were loved by all in The Titanic, but few have been able to see the depth in their acting Revolutionary way. They portray a married couple who have been going through quite a rough patch and decide to make a fresh start and move to Paris. But an unplanned pregnancy forces them to abandon the plan that is driving the couple further apart. The film, directed by Sam Mendes, features an iconic scene between the two acting powerhouses that is almost unforgettable.
4. The Holiday – Netflix
Holiday movies have a very different atmosphere. And The holiday is a glorious entry into this genre. Two girls (Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz) on opposite sides of the Atlantic decide to switch homes over the holidays to take a break from their respective relationships. Their lives change when they fall in love with two local boys during the holidays. Even though it is an ensemble, Kate Winslet’s rendition is memorable and well worth watching.
5. Diverse – Amazon Prime Video
Divergent will be the most notable movie you will see from this list. Set in a futuristic Chicago, Kate Winslet plays an antagonist. And she does so convincingly. The story takes place in the future where society is divided into five different factions. With Kate’s character Jeanine Matthews at the head of these factions, it’s a battle between her and the main character Beatrice Prior (played by Shailene Woodley), a divergent who is prevented from fitting into a faction.
6. Sense and Sensitivity – Netflix
I had the choice between Contamination and this one, and I chose the latter mainly because this was Kate Winslet’s introduction to the world. Released in 1995, Sensation and sensitivity is beautifully adapted from Jane Austen’s 19th century period drama. The story follows three women who have to get out of poverty after the death of their father. The film also stars Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman.
7. Black Beauty – Disney+ Hotstar
And finally a fantasy film about a beautiful bond between a young girl and a horse, Black Beauty makes for a really enjoyable watch. Yes, Kate Winslet the voice of the horse and that’s good enough for us. How bonding with the horse helps the girl overcome challenges in her life will lift anyone watching this film, and don’t we all need a pick-me-up now and then?
