Home (in 3D)
Stars: Rihanna, Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez, Steve Martin

Our Two Cents: No harm no foul – everyone needs an animated film every once in a while.
Stars: Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper
Directed by: Susanne Bier
Synopsis: Just before the Depression, timbre magnate George Pemberton struggles to sustain his empire. The arrival of his wife appears to be his saving, but her irrational behaviour and growing disdain for his lovechild makes her a dangerous adversary.
Our Two Cents: This film is already out in England, and it’s terrifyingly bad – you may lose faith in Lawrence altogether.

Synopsis: A middle-aged couple who maintain a seemingly lovely if not simple life are forced to question everything they have but together with the arrival of a younger couple.
