Movie: Ma

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: Octavia Spencer takes on the character of Ma so well that without her, this would just be another teen thriller.

Movie: Anna

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: Anna is a much more irreverant, enjoyable and flat out bizarre spy thriller than it might first appear and is bolstered by a storming lead performance from newcomer Sasha Luss who easily holds her own against wonderfully fun performances from the likes of Cillian Murphy and Helen Mirren.
