FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

Would you buy a used spaceship from this man? Solo: A Star Wars Story comes blasting into cinemas this week. A widow takes on a mountain in Edie, a 17th Century army officer awaits a transfer in Zama and an undercover rottweiler goes all out to save a panda cub in Show Dogs. An Afghan girl defies the Taliban by dressing as a boy in The Breadwinner and documentary The Rape Of Recy Taylor recounts how one woman's courage helped to change America. Mutants take on a time traveller in Deadpool 2, while a troubled woman becomes obsessed with a teenager in Allure, a couple have a crisis on their wedding night in On Chesil Beach, and three people struggle against eviction in A Cambodian Spring. Plus there are big screen rereleases for The Sound Of Music and 2001: A Space Odyssey.
