The Shape of Water [15] 123 mins
Elisa is a mute, isolated woman who works as a cleaning lady in a hidden, high-security government laboratory in 1962 Baltimore. Her life changes for ever when she discovers the lab’s classified secret – a mysterious, scaled creature from South America that lives in a water tank. As Elisa develops a unique bond with her new friend, she soon learns that its fate and very survival lies in the hands of a hostile government agent and a marine biologist.

When his second-in-command, Officer Dixon, an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement is exacerbated. Starring Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Abbie Cornish, Peter Dinklage and Samara Weaving.
I, Tonya [15] 119 mins
Based on unbelievable but true events, I, Tonya is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history – an infamous, ill-conceived and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. This is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding’s life and career in all of its unchecked – and chequered – glory starring Margot Robbie, Allison Janney and Bobby Cannavale.
