Fifty Shades Freed

“Believing they have escaped the dark secrets of their past, newlyweds Christian and Ana have their honeymoon cut short when Ana’s former boss Jack Hyde (Eric Johnson) kidnaps Christian’s sister Mia (Rita Ora), holds her hostage, and demands a ransom for her release. With time running out, a pregnant Ana must do all she can to get Mia back as Christian struggles to come to terms with the prospect of fatherhood.”

The Shape of Water

“Mute cleaner Elisa Esposito (Sally Hawkins) works in a government laboratory in 1960s Baltimore. When the lab takes delivery of a classified experiment Elisa’s life changes forever. Inside a mysterious water tank is a creature that was caught in a South American river by Colonel Richard Strickland (Michael Shannon). While cleaning one day, Elisa discovers that the creature is in fact a humanoid amphibian (Doug Jones) for which she quickly develops romantic feelings. When she learns of the creature’s fate at the hands of the Colonel, she sets a plan in motion to kidnap him and return him to the sea.”

Finding Your Feet

“Imelda Staunton, Timothy Spall, Celia Imrie and Joanna Lumley star in this British comedy directed by Richard Loncraine.

“As she’s about to settle in to retirement, Sandra (Staunton) discovers that her husband Mike (John Sessions) has been having an affair with her best friend Pamela (Josie Lawrence). Finding herself at a loss and having to start her life over, Sandra moves in with her hippy sister Bif (Imrie) and sets out on a path of self-discovery, along the way recapturing the happy-go-lucky woman she used to be.”

I, Tonya

“Margot Robbie stars in the title role of this biographical drama about American figure skater Tonya Harding.

“Growing up with an aggresively pushy mother (Allison Janney), Tonya Harding was forced into the world of figure skating but never quite fit in. Unlike others in the sport, she was not from a privileged background nor did she present an image of grace and elegance, but her ability far outweighed this and she went on to compete in and win several competitions.

“But with the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships looming and her opponent Nancy Kerrigan (Caitlin Carver) posing a dangerous threat, her ex-husband Jeff Gillooly (Sebastian Stan) decides to take matters into his own hands to ensure that Tonya wins the title.”
