Films: What’s on in April




Ever attended one of those films where you simply can’t move at the end? Either you find yourself sitting still in wonder and amazement at what you have seen, or you sit there admiring the achievements of the characters in the film or you are simply overwhelmed with emotion?

Back in 2015, I found myself sitting and weeping through the end credits of a documentary that couldn’t fail to move the hardest of hearts. The film was Amy, a look at the tragic life of Amy Winehouse. What a waste of an incredible talent. This month the story is being retold in a new dramatic film with Marisa Abela in the title role. Expect another emotional roller coaster in Back to Black.

Fans of action and horror are going to be well served during April. The First Omen, no, not that one, a new first Omen is out early in the month as is Monkey Man, basically an indian John Wick. Seize Them is set in the middle ages and sees a queen losing her empire.

Civil War looks like being action-packed as well as topical. In a dystopian future America, a team of military-embedded journalists race against time to reach Washington, DC, before rebel factions descend upon the White House. Despite the title, Sometimes I Think About Dying is a romantic comedy drama. Honest! Boy Kills Word is a violent revenge thriller that is an 18 certificate. Tennis fans can warm up for Wimbledon with Challengers, a romantic, comedy drama set around the game. Ordinary Angels follows a recovering alcoholic on her journey.

That’s your lot for April. I hope you enjoy your cinema what ever emotions they provoke. That’s all folks!
