Ten new movies to see this month

March's biggest, best and most unmissable theatrical releases


You Were Never Really Here

British filmmaker Lynne Ramsay (‘Ratcatcher’, ‘Morvern Callar’) returns with an impressionistic and daringly enigmatic hitman thriller taken from a short novel by Jonathan Ames. Look out for a career-redefining turn from Joaquin Phoenix and another Jonny Greenwood score that will ring in your ears for days afterwards.

Sweet Country

Good as 'The Proposition' is, Australia isn't exactly known for its westerns. That may slowly change if early word on Warwick Thornton's Outback oater is anything to go by. The 'Samson & Delilah' director is back with a chase movie that boasts a compassion and inclusive perspective on the Aboriginal experience. But will justice be served? Don't count on it.

Isle of Dogs

If Wes Anderson’s 'Fantastic Mr. Fox' was a joyful slice of whimsy, his latest foray into stop-motion creature features looks like a more complex beast. Set in a near-future Japan, it’s a dystopian tale in which crusading young people take on a corrupt establishment. Anderson's old pals – Bill Murray, Bob Balaban, F. Murray Abraham – lend their dulcet tones, along with some new additions to the roster, including Greta Gerwig and Bryan Cranston. Woof!

A Wrinkle in Time

Ava DuVernay is already a star – her work on 'Selma' and her inspirational championing of female filmmakers in recent months have made her a key figure in Hollywood's future – but this big-budget Disney sci-fi promises to seal the deal. Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling headline a galaxy-spanning adventure that boasts diversity, imagination and plenty of quirky charm.

It's been seven years since Paddy Considine's directorial debut 'Tyrannosaur' won him wild praise from critics. He's back with another emotional, hard-hitting drama and is going a step further this time: he's starring in this one, too. Considine plays a boxer, whose final fight presages not a happy retirement but a brutal rehabilitation process. Jodie Whittaker co-stars as the fighter's wife, bringing added heart and soul to a marital drama with a difference.

Mary Magdalene

Jesus takes a backseat to his friend, confidente and early feminist Mary Magdalene in this record-resetting look at her life. It probably won't make the Vatican's watchlist – at least, not in the good sense – but two serious-minded headliners (Rooney Mara, Joaquin Phoenix) and plenty of provocative touches, it'll definitely get people talking.

The Square

4 out of 5 stars

Swedish writer-director Ruben Östlund moves from skewering the male ego in 2014's pin-sharp comedy-drama 'Force Majeure' to turning his sights on the art world. Claes Bang stars as a contemporary art museum's curator who finds his life unraveling around him in all sorts of surprising ways. 'The Square' didn't win best foreign language film at the Oscars but don't let that deter you: it's another lacerating gem from Östlund.

Ready Player One

The king of popcorn sci-fi, Steven Spielberg hasn't tackled the genre since 'Minority Report'. Excitement levels will be pitched correspondingly high for a visual extravaganza that sends Tye Sheridan's gamer into a VR world called OASIS. Expect '80s references, furious action and sinister bad guys.

My Generation

Michael Caine is back and hoping to blow the cinema doors off with a curated tour of the Swinging Sixties. It's a subject he knows a thing or two about – he played Alfie, after all – and he should make a suitably insightful guide to the era of sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll, and twinkling-eyed Cockneys made good. Fans of The Beatles, Stones, and assorted '60s icons should note that he's coaxed a few old pals along for the ride too.

The restlessly creative Steven Soderbergh attempts another one of his high-wire experiments in form and style (see also: 'Schizopolis', 'The Girlfriend Experience') with a rapidly-shot, iPhone-filmed thriller that sticks poor Claire Foy in a psychiatric ward and throws all manner of mayhem her way. Yes, HRH from 'The Crown' is slumming it in a sure-to-be-spiky journey into the dark side of the human psyche.

i really liked sultan movie


I was lucky enough to catch an advance screening of this movie, and I was extremely glad I did. After watching the previews I felt as though a lot of the movie was given away, but I was blown away by the performances on screen. The movie was centered around a champion prize fighter hitting rock bottom, and slowly climbing his way back into the ring. It was an emotional journey that cannot simply be categorized as a movie about boxing, but rather, an inspiring and riveting tale of parenthood and a father's love for his daughter. The cast was excellent and everyone excelled in their roles. I wouldn't have expected to like Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson in a role as much as I did. Jake Gyllenhaal and Forest Whitaker had Oscar worthy performances. Everyone did a great job with their roles. The cinematography was fantastic, and the fight scenes gave some great first person shots that made you feel as though you were there in the ring fighting along side the actors. Overall, this movie is an experience that is not to be missed

Schoenarts is amazing in 'Rust and Bone' as well, with Marainne Cotillard. By the way he's Belgian, not Dutch, and it not too hard to pronounce if you ignore the spelling - shone (rhymes with bone) arts - shone-arts .
