FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

It's space battle time again this week in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2, a complicated romance forms during the Armenian genocide in The Promise, and a loveless marriage inspires murderous thoughts in Lady Macbeth - we chatted to director William Oldroyd. Illness complicates a relationship in The Big Sick, the effect of childhood stress is explored in Resilience, and a dying youth's choice proves able to Heal The Living - we spoke with director Katell Quillévéré. A British film crew is sent to make wartime propaganda in Their Finest, while an actress falls for a chauffeur in Rules Don't Apply and romance and boxing combine to make it The Happiest Day In The Life Of Olli Mäki . Friendship means everything to a lonely schoolboy in Handsome Devil while a bullied boy begins to identify with vampires in The Transfiguration and a doctor becomes obsessed with a young holidaymaker in Suntan. The true story of Gertrude Bell is told through her Letters From Baghdad - read what directors Sabine Krayenbühl and Zeva Oelbaum told us about it. All this, plus we're bringing you all the latest from the Tribeca Film Festival.
