Movies This Week – 30-05-18
It’s another slow one, so don’t expect too much! There is a re-release of 2001 knocking around, so maybe go to that? Or time to catch up on what you missed from the last few weeks. My Friend Dahmer is the only one we’d recommend. Sadly L’amant Double doesn’t seem to be getting a cinema release over here.
