FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

Two young women spiral into danger this week in Stray Dolls, a teacher embarks on a deceptive love affair in Who You Think I Am and there's something nasty in the water in Sea Fever. A magical journey takes place in The Iron Mask and a murder-suicide is explored in documentary A Thread Of Deceit: The Hart Family Tragedy. An author turns detective in Agatha And The Truth Of Murder, tales from New York's criminal underworld feature in Inner City Rats and racist murders in the US South are the subject of documentary What You Gonna Do When The World's On Fire? A lawyer tries to save a death row inmate in Just Mercy, while a crime lord blackmails a mother into running dangerous errands in Acceleration and a group of kids encounter a psammead in Four Kids And It. Two brothers and a teenage girl try to dodge mob assassins in Clover, there's time travel with a twist in James Vs His Future Self, an unplanned pregnancy prompts a difficult journey in Never Rarely Sometimes Always and there's a strange pilgrimage in The Whalebone Box, while the final work of Yves Saint Laurent features in Celebration - we spoke to director Olivier Meyrou.
