The 10 bestselling DVDs at Readings in 2017

Here are our 10 bestselling DVDs from the past year.

(We’ve also compiled our 100 bestselling books of 2017 and our 10 bestselling CDs of 2017.)

Our bestselling DVDs of last year reveal our customers' love of historical dramas, crime mysteries and cats!

Ceyda Torun’s documentary about the cats of Istanbul, Kedi was a favourite with staff as much as it was with customers this year, as was Taika Waititi. We’re so pleased to see the New Zealander listed here for his heartwarming family film, Hunt for the Wilderpeople.

Several of the following DVDs are adapted from literary works. Inspector Montalbano draws from Andrea Camilleri’s detective stories, The Night Manager is a sleek imagining of one of John le Carré’s espionage novels, Death in Brunswick is based on Boyd Oxlade’s black comedy classic, and Big Little Lies brings Liane Moriarty’s addictive suburban drama to vivid life.

Speaking of Big Little Lies, it just picked up four awards at the 2018 Golden Globes including Best Miniseries or Television Film.
