Cape Town - Two new offerings kick off the new year at local cinemas this weekend.

Jennifer Aniston stars as a pageant mom in the delightful comedy, Dumplin' with rising-star Danielle Macdonald as her daughter, and Carlos López Estrada's Blindspotting will take you on an emotional rollercoaster.

Here are the 2 new films releasing at SA cinemas:

Movie: Dumplin’

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: A delightful comedy about a mother-daughter relationship in the world of pageantry, Dumplin' manages to dance circles around pitfalls that would have made it another teenage cliché movie.

Our rating: 5/5

Short review: If you’re looking for gritty, raw drama with a healthy dose of comic relief, look no further than this rap-spitting, punch-throwing, joke-cracking, cinematic ode to street philosophy.
