FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

Events leading up to an Australian tragedy are dramatised this week in Nitram - see our interview with director Justin Kurzel - and if you have a burning love for cinema, you can check out Baz Luhrmann's Elvis. Prisoners put on a play in The Big Hit and a man tries to rebuild his life as a pandemic causes amnesia in Apples - director Christos Nikou shared his thoughts. A young woman becomes her father's carer in Moon, 66 Questions - we spoke with director Jacqueline Lentzou - and Sufi Muslims go on a spiritual journey in Faya Dayi - see what director Jessica Beshir told us about it. All this, plus there's a rerelease for Rambo story First Blood.

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 we're shining a spotlight on Tribeca Film Festival winners.
