When Annie Gra­ham’s (Toni Col­lette) mother dies, her death be­gins to un­ravel some­thing far more sin­is­ter than just old wounds: her care­fully-con­structed minia­ture model dio­ra­mas are just slightly ‘off’, and her daugh­ter, Char­lie (Milly Shapiro), might be evok­ing an an­cient fam­ily curse. It’s a truly creepy hor­ror-thriller from first-time writer and direc­tor Ari Aster. Im­bued with a sense of dread right from the get-go, it’s 127 min­utes of fear as an un­speak­able fam­ily tragedy moves into the su­per­nat­u­ral. ✪✪✪✪✪

Ocean’s 8

This spin-off of the Steven Soder­berghdi­rected Ocean’s films stars San­dra Bul­lock as Deb­bie Ocean, the head of an all-fe­male heist crew. The cast (Ri­hanna, Cate Blanchett, Awk­wa­fina, Mindy Kal­ing, Sarah Paul­son and He­lena Bon­ham Carter) is as daz­zling as the $150 mil­lion neck­lace they plan to steal from celeb Daphne Kluger (Anne Hath­away) at the glit­ter­ing Met Gala. ✪✪✪✪

On Chesil Beach

Based on the novel by Ian Mcewan (best­selling writer of Atone­ment), the film fol­lows Ed­ward (Billy Howle) and Florence (Saoirse Ro­nan), vir­gins and new­ly­weds from dif­fer­ent so­ci­etal classes try­ing to nav­i­gate the pit­falls and pres­sures of the sex­ual rev­o­lu­tion in 1962 Eng­land. It’s a su­perb, gen­teel film, yet one with a dis­turb­ing grip. ✪✪✪✪


Prov­ing boys never grow up, is this com­edy about child­hood friends (Ed Helms, Jon Hamm, Han­ni­bal Buress and Jake John­son) who have been play­ing Tag since school. This year, the game co­in­cides with the wed­ding of Jerry (Jeremy Ren­ner), the only player to never be ‘it’ – and they are de­ter­mined to bring him down. Sounds lu­di­crous, but it works. ✪✪✪
