Highly controversial in its native France, François Ozon’s (Frantz, Swimming Pool) brilliant new film follows the survivors of an ongoing child abuse scandal in the Catholic church as they seek justice. With deep compassion and sensitivity, we follow three very different real-life figures who revealed their trauma to expose the church’s conspiracy.
While the film is as absorbing as a political thriller, it sacrifices none of the human realities of surviving a broken childhood. Sincere, compassionate and morally righteous, Ozon has crafted a powerful and moving drama that bears comparison with Oscar-winner Spotlight as it shines a light on a shameful chapter in the church’s history.

This amiable buddy movie was a hit at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
Zak (Zack Gottsagen) has Down’s Syndrome and has been in a nursing home for two years when he stages an escape, aided by an older inmate (Bruce Dern). Hiding himself upon a fishing boat owned by Tyler (Shia LeBeouf), he is on a mission to attend a wrestling training camp he has seen on an aged VHS tape and become the titular Peanut Butter Falcon. As the duo team up, they are pursued by nursing home volunteer Eleanor (Dakota Johnson).
One of the rare films to allow a person with a disability centre stage, Gottsagen’s multilayered, often hilarious performance is at the heart of this winning story of finding yourself.

The Dirty War on the NHS is the new documentary from renowned BAFTA and Emmy-winning film-maker and journalist John Pilger.
"This film is a tribute to a unique institution," says Pilger at the start of Dirty War, which is about threatened democracy.
Above all, it is a warning. Pilger investigates the dismantling "by stealth" of the National Health Service, "a last bastion of true public service".

Oscar nominee Feras Fayyad (Last Men in Aleppo) delivers an unflinching story of the Syrian war.
For besieged civilians, hope and safety lie underground inside the subterranean hospital known as The Cave, where paediatrician and managing physician Dr Amani Ballour and her colleagues Samaher and Dr Alaa have claimed their right to work as equals alongside their male counterparts, doing their jobs in a way that would be unthinkable in the oppressively patriarchal culture that exists above.
Following the women as they contend with daily bombardments, chronic supply shortages and the ever-present threat of chemical attacks, The Cave paints a stirring portrait of courage, resilience and female solidarity.
