2/5 55% Five Feet Apart (2019) Five Feet Apart is a film for the tumblr generation. It's just a shame it's seven or eight years late. - Flicks.co.nz EDIT

4/5 87% Colette (2018) No one does seething quite like Keira Knightley, and she deploys some of her best emotional work in this film. - Flicks.co.nz EDIT

3/5 46% Second Act (2018) Second Act is nothing new or outstanding, but it's a nice watch, and worth it to see Jennifer Lopez on screen again. - Flicks.co.nz EDIT

2/5 69% Beautiful Boy (2018) Beautiful Boy is an ambitious film, one that hopes to make known the exhausting heartbreak of addiction. Unfortunately, it ends up simply exhausting. - Flicks.co.nz EDIT

4/5 94% CAM (2018) The plot of Netflix techno-thriller Cam doesn't entirely satisfy, but the compelling concept, excellent lead performance, and brilliant details win out. - Flicks.co.nz EDIT

2/5 70% Adrift (2018) Expositional dialogue, a predictable second act twist, and an over-reliance on score for emotional resonance all contribute to the film's chaotic tone. - Flicks.co.nz EDIT

5/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) Exquisitely renders the complex, funny, turbulent love between mother and daughter, which is to say, the way desire can feel like betrayal. - Flicks.co.nz EDIT
