Movies This Week – 08-05-19
Amazing Grace is released this week and we loved it. The hair, the dancing and so much more besides. A small slice of life in 1972! Otherwise, there’s a few interesting ones with High Life by Claire Denis and Detective Pikachu for the kids! I had high hopes for Destination Wedding but sadly the critics have ruined them! Fear not, Keanu fans, John Wick is released shortly.
Dates for all upcoming movies can be found here.
