Flatliners

What we know

Ellen Page and Diego Luna are among the cast who take on a rebooted Flatliners (remember the original?), where a group of young people dice with death in order to experience the afterlife.

What the critics say

- “Cheap-looking and shoddy, Flatliners utterly fails to generate any scares over its 110 minutes, although it does inspire a pervasive sense of panic about Ellen Page’s career.” – StudentEdge

Goodbye Christopher Robin

What we know

This is based on the true story of playwright AA Milne (played by our own Domhnall Gleeson), who, while suffering from writer’s block, gets inspiration from his son. The result? Pooh.

What the critics say

  • “Despite it beginning with Milne’s struggles, the film ultimately focuses on Christopher’s emotional journey. And whether that’s successful comes down to the actor playing him. Happily, Will Tilston (in his first role) is a revelation.” – Empire
  • “Instead, we’re left with something handsome but safe, a film that tries to bridge the gap between children’s characters and adult concerns without ever anchoring itself to either side.” – IndieWire

Home Again

What we know

Reese Witherspoon plays a recently separated woman who decides to move back home to LA with her daughters. But while out one night, she meets three young filmmakers, and inexplicably ends up letting them move into her house. Larks and emotional dramas ensue. Directed by Nancy Meyers’ daughter, Hallie Meyers-Shyer.

What the critics say

  • “A Nancy Meyers movie is instantly recognizable. They are signature and without compare—which is what makes Home Again so fascinating and strange. The film throws you deep into the uncanny valley, presenting a synthetic version that’s so close to the real thing—which is to say, a genuine Nancy Meyers movie—that its small differences drive you mad.” – Vanity Fair 
  • “The problems begin with the script, or perhaps just with the insulting idea that Alice would be crying buckets into a mirror because she’s turning 40 on the day the story opens.” – New York Times
