Trailer Watch: Which movie should you go see this weekend?

What’s a must-watch, and what’s a miss? We tell you.

Ghostbusters

What we know

Right, it has actually been out since Monday, but you might not have seen it yet. A sort-of remake of the original, but starring an all-female cast, and with Paul Feig at the helm. Enjoy.

What the critics say

  • “As enjoyable as this movie is, sometimes it feels like it’s holding back; no one’s id runs wild. But the limitations of Ghostbusters make Wiig, McCarthy, McKinnon, and Jones even more valuable. They make a big franchise-starter warmer and more endearing than it needs to be.” - AV Club
  • “The real triumph of this new Ghostbusters is that it doesn’t feel like an inversion, or an experiment, or a novelty. It just feels funny.” - The Guardian

Mom and Me

What we know

Ken Wardrop, the Irish director of His & Hers, is back with a documentary about mums and their sons – but set in the US. It’s not just a look at parental relationships, but also modern-day masculinity.

What the critics say

  • “Together, each portrait melds to create a heartrending whole guaranteed to make men think to call their mothers more often. To those who have lost their mothers, the experience of watching Mom and Me might prove unbearable – it’s that touching.” - The Guardian
  • “There is no real wisdom imparted in these stories, only evidence of the weird variety of humankind and the imperishability of that most essential and elemental of human relationships, between a mother and child.” - Hollywood Reporter

Summertime

What we know

Two women meet in 1971 and fall passionately in love. But when Delphine has to return to help on her family farm, can their love survive in a climate where their love must remain unspoken?

What the critics say

  • “…this beautifully realized tearjerker works as well as it does in part because the characters themselves don’t seem quite ready to follow through on the love they’re feeling.” - Variety
  • “Together, they are an almost textbook opposites-attract couple, though their chemistry is so real and natural you can’t help but root for them to be together.” - Hollywood Reporter
