FILMS OUT THIS WEEK
This week sees Golden Globe award nominee Robert Redford star as an elderly prison escapee in The Old Man & The Gun, and an ordinary man attracts media attention when he needs a face transplant in Mug. Scottish schoolkids take on zombies in award-winning musical Anna And The Apocalypse, Rachel Weisz plays a woman returning to her Orthodox Jewish community and the woman she once loved in Disobedience - we spoke to her co-star Alessandro Nivola - and Jean-Luc Godard explores a changing world in The Image Book. Eight hour documentary epic Dead Souls tells the story of the anti-rightist purges in China, Three Identical Strangers explores the bizarre story of triplets separated at birth in a strange experiment, and, just in time for Christmas, there are rereleases for Die Hard and Home Alone. All this, plus we have coverage of the French Film Festival UK , and we still have reviews coming in from the Marrakech Film Festival and the Scottish Queer International Film Festival.
