I’m only choosing from films that have been released in UK cinemas during 2015 (so, for instance, the ones I saw at the London Film Festival but which haven’t been given a general distribution aren’t in contention) and I’m only including movies which I’ve reviewed for London Mums.

Movie Preview: What To See In Early 2015

Dec 30 2014

The first few months of the year are a mixture of heaven and hell for film fans.  Heaven because all the big award contenders are released, which means plenty of good films, and hell because there’s so many, so you inevitably end up missing something.  But let’s be positive about it!   The films likely to be in the running for this year’s BAFTAs and Oscars (we won’t know for sure who they are until mid-January) will give adults plenty to get their teeth into – and there’s at least one family movie that could be up for a gong or two as well.

Here’s the Movie Preview pick of what the first three months of the New Year has to offer.
