Cape Town – A-listers hit the big screen at local cinemas this weekend.
Jessica Chastain stars in the biopic of ex-Olympic skier turned poker princess - Molly Bloom, Liam Neeson gets caught up in a murder conspiracy during his daily train commute and in the third flick Ben Stiller goes through a midlife crisis.
Here are the 3 new films releasing in local cinemas:
Movie: Molly’s Game
Our rating: 4/5
Short review: For his directorial debut, Aaron Sorkin turns in a film that is both more enjoyable and more nuanced than its basic plot may suggest.
Movie: The Commuter
Our rating: 3/5
Short review: The Commuter plays to many of Liam Neeson’s strengths but fails in its execution.
Movie: Brad’s Status
Our rating: 2/5
Short review: For the second time in as many months, Mike White strikes out with a film that is as annoying as it is, quite clearly, well-intentioned.
