Shadow And Bone
Netflix, Friday 23 April
Based on Leigh Bardugo’s bestselling “Grishaverse” novels, and adapted by Eric Heisserer (who wrote the superb sci-fi film Arrival), this latest epic fantasy from Netflix is set in a war-torn world where a soldier and orphan Alina Starkov (Jessie Mei Li) realises she has a superpower that could help to set her country free. She trains with an elite army of soldiers known as Grisha, who also have magical powers, and together they face the might of something called the Shadow Fold. This eight-parter also stars Ben Barnes (The Falcon And The Winter Soldier), Zoë Wanamaker (Britannia) and Luke Pasqualino (Skins).
