FILMS OUT THIS WEEK
As Avengers: Age Of Ultron continues to dominate at the box office, there's sci-fi action in Monsters: Dark Continent and things take a turn for the absurd in A Pigeon Sat On A Branch Reflecting On Existence. Senegalese immigrant Samba tries to build a future in France and Sudanese children experience life after war in The Good Lie and an Asian teenager faces violence in a young offenders' institution in We Are Monster, while there's terror in the highlands in Let Us Prey. Romance is complicated in new adaptation Far From The Madding Crowd, a Japanese girl comes of age in Au Revoir L'Été, a young Englishman learns to love Spanish-style in Tea & Sangria and a Taiwanese woman faces middle age in Exit. A musician's story is told by her daughter in documentary Argerich, and the facts beneath the feathers are explored in I Am Big Bird: The Carroll Spinney Story. Plus we still have reviews coming in from Tribeca.
