What’s new on the big screen
The Mountain Between Us
THIS isn’t so much a survival flick as a disaster romance. Neither Idris Elba nor Kate Winslet is capable of a bad performance and the chemistry between them threatens to melt the film’s spectacular snow-covered backdrop. Their acting compels the story forward even when the action falters.◗ Stars: Idris Elba, Kate Winslet, Dermot Mulroney. Rating :M In cinemas: now.
A SINGLE mum’s new life in Los Angeles takes an unexpected turn when she takes in three unlikely house guests, struggles to reinvent her career and finds herself entangled in a new relationship. This film is full of rom com veterans, but they can’t elevate this beyond the formulaic. Stars: Reese Witherspoon, Michael Sheen, Nat Wolff. Rating :M In cinemas: Thursday.
