Movies This Week – 20-06-18
A few new releases this week but nothing we’d be willing to demand you go and see. There is a little Irish one worthy of your attention called Kissing Candice down the bottom that has Conall Keating from ‘Leper + Chip‘ fame! Worth checking out for that alone. The Happy Prince with Rupert Everett is probably the best of the bunch.
