This Week's UK Cinema Releases

Week Commencing November 27th 2017

Release wise the cupboard is pretty bare, with only a handful of films to pick from. Wonder is the biggest release of the week, ticking all the right boxes for a late run at the Oscars. Austrian director Michael Haneke returns after 5 years with the darkly cynical Happy End, while it's the time of year when The Muppets Christmas Carol gets a little run out. We also hear the story about the creation of Dicken's A Christmas Carol in The Man Who Invented Christmas, while Ana Asensio's festival favourite, Most Beautiful Island, gets a small release.
