What we know

Great director Andrea Arnold shifts her focus from the UK to the US with this film, following what happens when a young girl called Star gets mixed up with a group of wild young people. Also stars Shia LaBouef.

What the critics say

  • “There’s a great ninety minute movie here and pushing it to over two and a half hours causes the narrative to circle; repetition and monotony and aimlessness sets in with boredom not far behind it. That problem aside, there’s something real and honest about this story and Lane is a star in the making.” -
  • “Part dreamy millennial picaresque, part distorted tapestry of Americana and part exquisitely illustrated iTunes musical, “Honey” daringly commits only to the loosest of narratives across its luxurious 162-minute running time.” - Variety

What we know

In 1974, TV reporter Christine Chubbuck shot herself live on television. This documentary follows as actress Kate Lyn Sheil prepares to play Chubbuck.

What the critics say

  • “The film’s method of circling around its subject, then closing in at the end, feels coy and withholding, as if Mr. Greene reserved the few juiciest moments for last.” - NY Times
  • “Kate Plays Christine paints itself into a bit of a corner, sprinkling in flash-forwards of the final scene throughout, and ultimately chooses a “third way” finale. I won’t reveal it, but I will say that the tricksy solution falls flat for me, as other provocative film-makers have reached the same emotional conclusion in a more concordant manner.” - The Guardian

What we know

Tom Hanks plays Robert Langdon in the latest Dan Brown movie. At his side is colleague Dr Sienna Brooks, played by Felicity Jones.

What the critics say

  • “There’s a lot of people frowning, running about in tourist locations, frowning, driving cars, firing guns, talking on the phone, frowning, but at the end the block is stubbornly unbusted.” - The Guardian
  • “If the first film was ploddingly, airlessly faithful to its source, this follows the second in being frantically paced, chaotic and increasingly exasperating.” - IndieWire
