Suspiria

When we heard Dario Argento’s unmatchable horror Suspiria was getting a remake we were, well, horrified. But we’re willing to eat our words, as Call Me By Your Name’s Luca Guadagnino’s 2018 reboot – starring Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz and Mia Goth – is exceptional. Young American dancer Susie Bannion arrives in 1970s Berlin to audition for the world-renowned Helena Markos Dance Co. When she vaults to the role of lead dancer, the woman she replaces breaks down and accuses the company's female directors of witchcraft. Meanwhile, an inquisitive psychotherapist and a member of the troupe uncover dark and sinister secrets as they probe the depths of the studio's hidden underground chambers.

Fired from the National Security Agency, Frans Balder recruits hacker Lisbeth (Foy) to steal FireWall, a computer program that can access codes for nuclear weapons worldwide. The download soon draws attention from an NSA agent who traces the activity to Stockholm. Further problems arise when Russian thugs take Lisbeth's laptop and kidnap a math whiz who can make FireWall work. Now, Lisbeth and an unlikely ally must race against time to save the boy and recover the codes to avert disaster.

Widows

An all-star cast bolsters this crime thriller from Steve McQueen – the man behind 12 Years A Slave and Shame.

Nearby, an uncontrolled forest fire rages close to the Canadian border, and when Jerry loses his job – and his sense of purpose – he decides to join the cause of fighting the fire, leaving his wife and son to fend for themselves. Suddenly forced into the role of an adult, Joe witnesses his mother's struggle as she tries to keep her head above water.
