5 movies to watch this week (27 Aug 2015)

Amy

For fans of: Music documentaries like ‘Montage of Heck’ (2015) and ‘Marley’ (2012)

Amy Winehouse documentary from the director of 2010's brilliant ‘Senna’. The story of one of England’s defining singers is told through interviews with family members, close friends and Winehouse herself.  The filmmakers have also been given access to the never-before-seen archival footage.

The filmmakers promise an "insightful portrait [that] will focus on the music of Amy Winehouse – the driving force of an incredible talent whose tragic loss was felt deeply by the music industry and music lovers around the world.” 


Inside Out

For fans of: Pixar movies like ‘Toy Story’ (1995) and ‘WALL-E’ (2008) 

From Disney/Pixar and the director of ‘Up’, comes a major emotion picture. ‘Inside Out’ is set inside a little girl's head where five emotions - Joy, Anger, Disgust, Fear and Sadness - try to guide her through life. 

Eleven-year-old Riley is your typical boisterous kid, but the anthropomorphic emotions that keep things ticking in the control room of her mind have their work cut out for them when her family uproots itself and moves cross-country to San Francisco.

Things take an even more complex turn when Joy (Amy Poehler) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) find themselves stranded far across the vast terrain of Riley's mind and have to return before her imbalanced emotions make an irreversible impact.


The Gallows

For fans of: ‘As Above, So Below’ (2014) and ‘Ouija’ (2014)

Woman In Gold

For fans of: ‘Big Eyes’ (2014) and ‘Rush’ (2013)

Ryan Reynolds, Katie Holmes, Daniel Brühl and Oscar-winner Helen Mirren star in this true legal drama centred on Holocaust refugee Maria Altman (Mirren).
