The Death of Stalin

Anybody familiar with the work of Armando Iannucchi will know what to expect with this latest offering from the Scottish writer/director whose penchant for political satire is perhaps unparalleled amongst contemporary piss-takers.

Ava

Hot on the heels of Ladybird comes this French coming-of-age story that mines some of the same territory explored by Greta Gerwig in her Academy Award-nominated effort before veering off into something quite unique and distinctly European.

A Fantastic Woman
