FILMS OUT THIS WEEK
Meryl Streep is back this week as a rock star mother in Ricki And The Flash. An American family holiday is interrupted by a coup in No Escape and dark secrets complicate friendship for Buttercup Bill, while a maid is visited by her estranged daughter in The Second Mother and teenagers look out for a sick friend in Me And Earl And The Dying Girl. A marriage comes under strain in the award-winning 45 Years and relationship difficulties are also highlighted in L'Eclisse, out on re-release. A teenage geek's college ambitions are threatened when he's set up with Dope and a stoned secret agent fends off assassins in American Ultra, plus there's a big-screen outing for Hitman: Agent 47, Zac Efron plays an ambitious young DJ in We Are Your Friends, and the story of NWA is told in Straight Outta Compton. A tower block is infested in Zombie Fight Club, there's a re-release for brutal criminal biopic Bronson, and in the documentary corner, Teesdale farmers are Addicted To Sheep. All this, plus we're bringing you coverage of the Venice Film Festival.
