Mad about movies: This week's new UAE film releases

What's on at the cinema.



An intriguing prospect, we’ll be front and centre for this American-Canadian sci-fi solely based on the buzz it has created. Hailed as one of the best genre concepts Hollywood has produced in a few years, the movie centres on Chloe (Lexy Kolker), a seven-year old forced by her father (Emile Hirsch) to stay at home her entire life as a result of the ‘freaks’ wandering the streets who took her mother (Amanda Crew). When the child finally steps out into the world, awakening telepathic powers, she believes her mum to be alive. Rotten Tomatoes gives it 88%

A teen romance – its not our number one motivation for going to the cinema, but hey ho, we’re just happy new films are flooding in. A sequel to the movie After (2014), the story picks up where the last one left off. Tessa Young (Josephine Langford) must venture out into the world of business. Her beau, Hardin (Hero Fiennes Tiffin*) can’t help but succumb to temptation when she’s away, driving Tess into the arms of another man: Trevor (Dylan Sprouse) from work. IMDb gives it 6. *That’s really his name.

Breathtaking animation is becoming increasingly common, but occasionally a cartoon comes along which looks genuinely astounding. Vivarium is that film. Coming out of Japan, in the UAE we can choose between the English version starring Riz Ahmed and Alison Brie or a native language edition with Nana Mori and Shun Oguri. Either will suffice because you will go for the visuals anyway. Story-wise it’s a sc-fi mystery about a young woman who can control the weather and a reporter who wishes to write about her power. Rotten Tomatoes gives it 91%
