Johannesburg - City Press has put together a list of movies to catch in cinemas this week. This list also includes a movie you can catch at an independent cinema. 

There's something for everyone from drama and romance to a musical and a gangster flick.

Here are 4 movies to catch on the circuit this week:

1. Moonlight

This story of two black, gay lovers is a film of staggering beauty – a collection of character studies that gets under the skin of manhood. 

– Charl Blignaut

2. Live by Night

A disappointing effort by director and lead Ben Affleck. This dreary crime story drags on without much payoff. – Gayle Edmunds

3. La La Land

Up for a number of Oscars, this musical follows a young couple trying to follow their dreams in Los Angeles. It’s thoughtful and well choreographed, but not particularly memorable. – Grethe Kemp


4. Respire / Breathe

The Bioscope, Maboneng Precinct

Thursday, 7.30pm

Charlie is an average French suburban teenager, but when she becomes fast friends with Sarah, the rebellious new girl at school, she discovers there’s nothing average about how she feels.
