If you did some research, you will find that in this year 2021, two movies came out with the same title, which is Help! However, in this article, we are going to give you movies like Help (2021) starring Jodie Comer, and streaming on channel 4.
The story of the movie is simple and we can all relate to it since we have all been going through the pandemic. So, Sarah is getting an offer to work in a care home in Liverpool, Sarah can easily connect with others, so the job was suiting her, and everything was going well.
However, the pandemic hits, and everything is changed, so, how is Sarah going to handle the situation? To be honest, I find the movie to be very realistic and did not show us a fake picture of what was really going on.
And, if you like a separate review about the movie Help 2021 (again the one starring Jodie Comer and Stephen Graham) let me know in the comments.
1 – Contagion
The closest movie like Help(2021) is Contagion, as the two movies share the same attribute, which is realistic events. the only difference is that Contagion has a different virus.
The movie is released in 2011. However, it got very popular when the pandemic hit in 2020, as the movie almost predicted what was going to happen, literally!
So, the story, in a nutshell, revolves in a mix of drama and thrill, as we see the challenge that the whole world is going to be facing when a new virus comes to the surface. However, the center of disease control is facing the pandemic and trying to save humanity.
And the movie did that in a very realistic way and it was almost how things have been going in our world these couple of years. The movie is highly recommended!

4 – Snowpiercer
“Snowpiercer” is something we don’t always find in movie theaters these days. It’s a clever Sci-Fi movie, whose story revolves around a train that travels non-stop 24/24, 7/7 to avoid freezing.
The movie can interest us in its future location at first and then draws our attention to its interesting journey full of fascinating scenes until it reaches a powerful conclusion.
