FILMS OUT THIS WEEK
This week sees three boys grow up in a tough neighbourhood in We The Animals while mutants take on aliens in X-Men: Dark Phoenix and an older woman struts her stuff at the disco in Gloria Bell. A talk show host finds her world changed when she hires a female writer in Late Night and four boys deal with a tragedy in Last Summer. In the documentary department there's a look at the work of artist Peter Howson in Prophecy, a profile of fashion designer Halston - see our interview with director Frédéric Tcheng - and a look at the consequences of Eating Animals. All this, plus there are rereleases for heist movie classic The Italian Job, Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan and Ealing comedy Kind Hearts And Coronets, and we're bringing you reviews and more from the Edinburgh International Film Festival and the New York Human Rights Watch Film Festival.
