Movies This Week – 11-09-19

The movie that no one really asked for, Downton Abbey the movie is released this week. Don’t expect too much from it, but with a ready made market, it should do pretty well!

Otherwise, there’s a couple of good ones, with Extra Ordinary starring Meave Higgins and Hustlers starring J. Lo… I still can’t believe it’s getting good reviews.
