FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

A lonely boy confronts a family secret this week in A Trip To The Moon - see what director Joaquín Cambre told us about it - while two men try to keep love alive in difficult times in Sorry Angel. The early life of Rudolph Nureyev is dramatised in The White Crow - we spoke with composer Ilan Eshkeri - while three young men find skateboarding a refuge from violence in Minding The Gap and a boxing tournament that has helped turn lives around is celebrated in Cradle Of Champions. Doppelgangers cause trouble for a family in Jordan Peele's Us while a man becomes obsessed by a woman's disappearance in Under The Silver Lake, and a troubled young man returns home in Ben Is Back. A group of seafarers form a band in Fisherman's Friends and a trans teenager dreams of becoming a ballerina in Girl. All this, plus we're bringing you news and reviews from BFI Flare, the Viva! Spanish and Latin American Film Festival and New Directors/New Films.
