FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

A troubled girl discovers that she can see other people's forgotten invisible friends this week in If, while another grows up with a mother who hunts for treasure in bins in Hoard, and there is comedy as dark as it gets in The Coffee Table. A daughter retraces her troubled father's footsteps in Nightwatch: Demons Are Forever, a man tries to hold on to his failing hotel in A Family Affair, and the legacy of a certain Kevin Smith film is explored in Chasing Chasing Amy - we spoke with director and star Sav Rodgers. A troubled archaeologist helps to loot ancient treasures in festival hit La Chimera - we interviewed director Alice Rohrwacher - while two women care for partners with brain injuries in The Almond And The Seahorse. A documentarian tries to look after his uncle in Much Ado About Dying, and there's a rerelease for early Danny Boyle thriller Shallow Grave.

We also have a great selection of film and streaming suggestions in our Stay-at-Home Seven, plus read our Streaming Spotlight on the films of Roger Corman.
