First up we have Dumb and Dumber To from directorial duo the Farrelly Brothers. The endearing dummies Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) have once again set out on a road trip, this time having to deal with the unbreakable ties and love families have. Have the Farrelly brothers recaptured the slapstick humour that defined the previous films? Read our review to find out.
The Theory of Everything depicts the love story between world renowned physicist Stephen Hawking and his wife, Jane. The film tells the relatable story of both falling in love and the dissolution of relationships, along with the obstacles we come across, overlook and overcome for the people we care about. For further insight on this film, read our review.
Next up is the new werewolf film, Wolves. The film follows protagonist Cayden's transformation into a creature of the night and whether or not he is the only of his kind. But does this genre-subversion/hybrid coming-of-age film say anything new about self-identity, or does it merely stalk a familiar path? Find out in our review of the film.
Beyond the Lights concentrates on up-and-coming singer Noni Jean, and her inner turmoil of being depicted in an overly sexualized manner in the entertainment industry. Read our review to find out more about Jean's struggle and her relationship to both the industry and her "scuzzy and lecherous" boyfriend.
The Better Angels tells the tale of Abraham Lincoln's childhood through moments rather than as a linear narrative. The film shows both the positive and difficult hardships he and his family had to endure, which helped shape and influence the 16th President of the United States.

Lastly, we have Jean Luc Godard's Goodbye To Language 3D. The film is "intentionally vague on plot details and is more interested in the juxtaposition of sounds and images, rendered literal through his use of 3D superimposition," our reviewer point out.
