WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT
Based on Kim Barker’s bestselling memoir The Taliban Shuffle (Knopf Doubleday, R257 for ebook), Tina Fey plays a war reporter who spent time in Afghanistan and Pakistan in the early 2000s. Between the AK47S, bombs, burqas and hard-drinking press corps is the humour and absurdity that wartime creates. ✪✪✪✪
QUEEN OF THE DESERT
Nicole Kidman stars as Gertrude Bell, a writer, cartographer, archaeologist and political attaché less famous than her male counterpart, Lawrence of Arabia. You’re in for beautiful cinematography and passionate scenes as Ms Bell notches up unforgettable experiences – and lovers, played by James Franco, Robert Pattinson and Damian Lewis.
When John Gray (David Dencik) admits to sexually abusing his 17-year-old daughter Angela (Emma Watson), detective Bruce Kenner (Ethan Hawke) turns to experimental methods to try and get Angela to remember what happened. Working alongside psychiatrist Kenneth Raines (David Thewlis), they soon uncover that a satanic cult may be involved. A tense, dark psychological thriller.
