FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

Zimbabwe's first ever wine tasting championship team takes shape this week in documentary Blind Ambition - see our interview with directors Robert Coe and Warwick Ross - while a girl struggles to relate to her mother in animé Fortune Favours Lady Nikuko. A troubled family implodes in What Josiah Saw, and an impotent man tries to assert himself through fighting in Vengeance Is Mine, All Others Pay Cash.

If you can't get to a cinema, we have plenty of suggestions for films to watch on television and streaming services in our Stay-at-Home Seven, plus you can read a review of Kier-La Janisse's House Of Psychotic Women (Expanded Edition) in our Eye For Books column, and as we look forward to this year's edition of Edinburgh International Film Festival we're shining a spotlight on past winners and selecting some highlights to catch as the festival celebrates its 75th year.
