A private detective tries to solve the murder of a friend this week in Motherless Brooklyn, a child star stands up to his ex-rodeo clown father in Honey Boy and aliens cause panic in Invasion Planet Earth, while documentary The Cave visits a Syrian hospital forced underground by bombs. An Irishwoman seek revenge in 19th Century Tasmania in The Nightingale, a firefighter battles to save the Earth in animé Promare, and it's Knives Out after the death of a writer. Documentary Shooting The Mafia profiles Sicilian photographer Letizia Battagli and there are rereleases for seasonal favourites Elf and Gremlins, AIDS drama Buddies, Jacques Demy classic The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg and Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut. All this, plus we're bringing you coverage of the French Film Festival.
