FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

This week in cinemas, there's music and romance in La La Land, which has already swept the board at the Golden Globes and a man faces up to his past in fellow Oscar contender Manchester By The Sea. Meanwhile, in France, a doctor faces falling sick himself, but is he Irreplaceable? A young boy facing the illness of his mum gets a surprise when A Monster Calls - read what Sigourney Weaver said about the film here. Meanwhile, in a galaxy far, far away, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story sees the Rebel Alliance threatened by the Death Star. Back on planet Earth - and back in time - two 17th century Jesuit priests face persecution in Japan in Silence. There's also a chance to see Trainspotting back on the big screen. Plus, Alex Gibney's Zero Days takes a look at Stuxnet and cyber security.
