Cape Town – Holiday season is in full swing, and what better way to kick if off than with a movie. 

A true life romance, a teen comedy that is one of the best movies of the year, Tom Hanks in an action flick, and an animation for the kids - there's something for everyone to see.

Here are the 5 new movies releasing in South Africa today:

Movie: Inferno

Our rating: 1/5

Short review: The worst of the Robert Langdon series by far, Inferno isn't just not saved by the talented people involved with it but looks all the worse precisely because everyone involved should have known better.

Movie:  The Edge of Seventeen

Our rating: 5/5

Short review: Funny, moving, smart, expertly made and utterly truthful, The Edge of Seventeen is one the year's very best films and a high point in the coming of age genre. Not bad for a teen comedy.

Movie:  A United Kingdom

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: The strength of this movie lies solely on the shoulders of its stars – Rosamund Pike and David Oyelowo give stellar performances in this biopic.

Our rating: 2/5

Movie: Robinson Crusoe

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: With a weak script and safe storyline, Robinson Crusoe might put you to sleep rather than keep you on the edge of your seat.
