You can tell it's Academy Awards season when the cinemas are crowded with high quality flicks, all hoping to capitalise on the free publicity. These five movies are Oscar hopefuls (with one deliriously weird exception) and all of them rate the maximum five stars from Time Out critics. From religious epics to searing coming-of-age dramas to 1960s spoofs, these are the ones to tick off your list.
