Among the titles joining the service are Henry V (1989) with Kenneth Branagh; La Vie En Rose (2007), a two-time Oscar and four-time BAFTA winner starring Marion Cotillard; Oscar winner Once (2007); The Passion of the Christ (2004), directed by Mel Gibson; Whale Rider (2003) with Keisha Castle-Hughes; Waking Ned (1998) and more.

Chris Sharp, chairman of W4Free, said: “Our goal for W4Free has been to establish the service as a leading provider of free entertainment in and out of the home. With that in mind, and with viewing hours continuing to build aggressively since our launch, these films help us meet some important goals. From family fare to horror to documentary to drama, these additional films include a mix of genres, ranging from well-known classics, award-winning films and some hidden gems. We hope our viewers will enjoy discovering them all.”
