What we know

Drama starring Game of Throne’s Maisie Williams, about an outbreak of fainting fits at a girls’ school.

What the critics say

  • “This is testy, tangy dramatic material, allowing for a range of interpretations — the most obvious positing the mass fainting as the involuntary outward expression of long-suppressed female sexuality” - Variety 
  • “There are so many acute insights, striking images and impressive performances in it, not least from lead Maisie Williams, it’s a tragic shame that elsewhere inexperience shows and the last 15 minutes devolve into a morass of melodramatic incident” - Hollywood Reporter

What we know

Avengers assemble again, under the eye of Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Boom. Minus the Black Widow though, how come?

What the critics say

  • “What’s shocking is how so many things that were strengths in the first film fall flat here” - The Verge 
  • “Now [The Avengers] are more like a G7 summit of world-saving and crime-fighting with every constituent member becoming a veritable Angela Merkel of demurely offbeat virility.” – The Guardian

The Good Lie

What we know

What the critics say

  • “[I]f any movie deserves two potentially get-out-your-hanky endings, it is this one.” - RogerEbert.com
  • “It’s often earnest to a fault and fearful of its deeper, darker implications.” - Rolling Stone
