Movies The Zookeeper’s Wife

Diane Ack­er­man’s ac­claimed book, based on the diaries of the re­mark­able žabiñski, An­ton­ina makes for one of the year’s most pow­er­ful and poignant adap­ta­tions. An­ton­ina (Jes­sica Chas­tain) and her hus­band Jan (Jo­han Helden­bergh) ran the War­saw Zoo dur­ing World War II, and this is the mirac­u­lous ac­count of how they saved hun­dreds of Jewish refugees by hid­ing them among the an­i­mals. A mov­ing hu­man drama about survival against the odds.

The Shack

Based on the best­seller by William P Young, The Shack cen­tres around Mack Phillips (Sam Wor­thing­ton), a fa­ther who sinks into a de­pres­sion af­ter his daugh­ter is found mur­dered. One day he re­ceives a mys­te­ri­ous let­ter that steers him back to where her body was found. This multi-tis­sue drama also stars Oc­tavia Spencer and Radha Mitchell.

Ghost in the Shell

In this re­make of the 1995 Ja­panese anime film, Ma­jor (Scar­lett Jo­hans­son), a cy­borg po­lice­woman, heads an elite crime-fight­ing unit in a fu­tur­is­tic world. Slick and in­trigu­ing, the Sfx-rich ac­tion re­volves around the hunt for a killer known as the Pup­pet Mas­ter, and raises ques­tions about the re­la­tion­ship be­tween hu­man­ity and tech­nol­ogy.

Beauty and the Beast

Emma Wat­son and Dan Stevens star as Belle and the Beast in the live-ac­tion adap­tion of the Dis­ney clas­sic, known for its Os­car-win­ning score. The sets and cos­tumes are spec­tac­u­lar and it’s worth see­ing for the ball scene alone. A great ex­cuse to in­dulge your in­ner child and revel in the ro­mance.
