Beat the boredom this weekend with three marvellous movies you simply have to watch… She is brilliant, bad and a little bit mad – get ready for a live-action film following the evil exploits of one of Disney’s most notorious and notoriously fashionable villains; enjoy an inspirational drama based on a true story about a Mexican boys’ home that entered the world’s biggest fishing tournament to save their orphanage; and catch a moving drama about a middle-aged couple in the midst of a cancer diagnosis.

Cruella, which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they’re able to build a life for themselves on the London streets. One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute. But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable, and revenge-bent Cruella. Now showing at a cinema near you.

To save their home, the boys and their guardian Omar, enter a fishing competition.
