THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 2 ★★★★

The fourth and final instalment of the epic fantasy adaptation sees Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) leading a band of A-listers towards revolution, while proving that steely determination and awesome archery tricks are just the thing to turn an aspiring actress into a young adult Hollywood role model.


THE DRESSMAKER ★★

Kate Winslet plays a glamorous 1950s fashionista who returns to her dusty Australian home town to settle some scores with her trusty sewing machine. The oddball Aussie film stitches together several plot threads and ends up as a patchwork of physical comedy, romance and serious drama. Colourful, but hardly seamless.


MOMENTUM ★★

A sadistic CIA assassin relentlessly tracks a glamorous bank robber in this super-slick action thriller, which sees James Purefoy playing cat and mouse with Olga Kurylenko through the streets of Cape Town.
