FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

This week sees the opening of The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a con man falls for a novice in Focus and a young woman goes on the run in Catch Me Daddy. There's inventive horror in It Follows, a Coen brothers obsession leads to danger for Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter, and Jennifer Aniston plays a woman fascinated by a suicide in Cake. There's also bdsm romance in The Duke Of Burgundy, a thoughtful journey into the past in Hinterland and best men are for hire in comedy The Wedding Ringer. In the documentary corner, Dreamcatcher looks at one woman's attempt to help girls quit sex work - see what director Kim Longinotto said about it - while Life's A Beach meets a man trying to live outside the system and Maidan remembers the Ukrainian revolution. All this, plus we're bringing you all the latest from the New York Rendez-Vous with French Cinema, and we still have reviews coming in from the Glasgow Film Festival and the Berlinale.
