The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - INSIDER -

GAME NIGHT 100 min­utes (MA15+) Ja­son Bate­man and Rachel McAdams play for keeps in this hilarious com­edy ca­per which pulls off more nar­ra­tive twists than an Olympic freestyle skier. BLACK PAN­THER 134 min­utes (M) In Mar­vel’s ever-ex­pand­ing su­per-verse, where the diet is pure pop­corn, the big cat loses its edge. WINCH­ESTER 99 min­utes (M) A cu­ri­ous true story gets the cookie cut­ter treat­ment, re­ly­ing heav­ily on jump scares and clas­sic hor­ror tropes to hold our at­ten­tion. 2:22 99 min­utes (M) Michiel Huis­man and Teresa Palmer don’t so much race against the clock in this ro­man­tic co­in­ci­dence thriller, as be­come tan­gled up in its in­ner work­ings. FIND­ING YOUR FEET 111 min­utes (M) A creaky, pre­dictable crowd­pleaser about em­brac­ing life in one’s later years. Not even its sea­soned English cast can save it. LADY BIRD 94 min­utes (M) An un­flinch­ingly in­ti­mate com­ing-of-age story about a young woman dy­ing to es­cape the con­fines of sub­ur­ban Sacra­mento. MOLLY’S GAME 140 min­utes (M) Alan Sorkin makes an im­pres­sive di­rec­to­rial de­but in this look at the rise and spec­tac­u­lar fall of poker queen Molly Bloom. I, TONYA 121 min­utes (MA15+) Margot Robbie is fear­less, fe­ro­cious and very funny in this look at the down­fall of ice skater Tonya Hard­ing. THE SHAPE OF WA­TER 123 min­utes (MA15+) Guillermo del Toro’s oth­er­worldy fairy­tale is so metic­u­lously art di­rected, it feels a bit self-con­scious. A FAN­TAS­TIC WOMAN 104 min­utes (M) A break­through per­for­mance from ac­tress/singer Daniela Vega as a trans­gen­der woman who en­coun­ters ex­treme prej­u­dice af­ter the death of her part­ner.
