FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

A teenager falls in love with skateboarding this week 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 girl with an ailing mother set out to transform her neighbourhood in Wonder Park and a trans man takes on pregnancy in documentary A Deal With The Universe - we spoke to director Jason Barker. Two assassins hunt their quarry through the Wild West in The Sisters Brothers, a family finds it hard to let go of the dead in Pet Sematary, a teenager takes on super powers in Shazam! and there's a rerelease for Kubrick classic A Clockwork Orange.
