FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

A young woman's friendship with a widow becomes something stranger this week in Greta, an elderly woman is arrested for espionage in Red Joan, two suspended cops look for trouble in Dragged Across Concrete and an atheist converts to Christianity in Let There Be Light. A teenager falls in love with skateboarding in Mid90s, the true story of ballet dancer Carlos Acosta is told in Yuli - see what Icíar Bollaín and Paul Laverty told us about it - and The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot does what it says on the tin. A trans man takes on pregnancy in documentary A Deal With The Universe - we spoke to director Jason Barker - and there are rereleases for Monty Python's Life Of Brian and classic kids' adventure film The Goonies.
