FILMS OUT THIS WEEK
A girl longs for magical powers like her family's this week in Disney's Encanto, while ambition leads to jealousy and a spiral of deceit in House Of Gucci and a love affair in a salt farming community brings an enemy to light in historic drama Lapwing. A teacher's reputation is at risk due to Bad Luck Banging Or Loony Porn - check out our A to Z guide to the film - while a widower has a haunting experience on an island in Shepherd and Oliver Stone explores newly released evidence in JFK Revisited: Through The Looking Glass. Egon Spengler's daughter and grandkids find themselves bustin' a fresh set of spooks in Ghostbusters: Afterlife, interlinked science fiction stories explore the meaning of life in Warning, the story of tennis stars the Williams sisters is told in King Richard and a bereaved girl has a magical experience in Petite Maman. A musician encounters a disturbing presence in The Strings, a couple raise an unusual child in Annette, a rescue mission involves a trip to another universe in Prisoners Of The Ghostland, and the history of London's lesbian underground is explored in Rebel Dykes.
