Cape Town – Channel24 Movies has all the deets on the latest movies you can see on the big screen this weekend.

An Oscar nominated film that puts the Catholic Church in the spotlight, a gripping true-life at sea rescue, a dressmaker's dramatic return to her small town home and a Nicholas Sparks romance – there is something to see for everyone.

Here are 4 new movies showing in South Africa:

Movie: Spotlight

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: You probably won't lose much if you don't catch it on the big screen but Spotlight needs to be seen, both for its beautifully realised, subtle storytelling and for the incredible story it has to tell.

Movie: The Finest Hours

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: The visual effects of The Finest Hours are as harrowing as the real event it was based on, masking the Disney-fied corny romance the audience is forced to partake in.
