On our radar: the films you need to see this month

With an exciting line up of films due to hit the cinemas soon, The Gryphon Arts Team have assembled their highlights of upcoming flicks.

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children
30th September

Directed by Tim Burton, it’s being heralded as his best work in years. Expect the weird, the wonderful and the gothic in this tale of an orphanage that’s home to children with some very peculiar powers.

Southside With You
30th September 

The first of two films about Obama out in quick succession, Southside With You focuses on Barack and Michelle’s first meeting and the romance that follows, and allows us to get to know the first couple on a more personal level.

American Honey
14th October

A tale of young love, adolescent trouble and long road trips, American Honey stars Shia LaBeouf and won the Jury prize at Cannes this year, and has been stirring up a lot of interest.

The Girl On The Train
5th October

Emily Blunt stars in this book to film adaption of the best-selling thriller about a divorcee who gets tanged up in case of a missing person. Definitely this year’s Gone Girl.

I, Daniel Blake
21st October

Legendary director Ken Loach won the Palme D’or this year with this film about an ordinary man fighting the welfare system after an injury renders him unable to work. Unapologetically political and highly powerful.

My Scientology Movie
7th October

Louis Theroux’ feature length documentary on the infamous Church of Scientology interviews famous members like Tom cruise and attempts to clear up some of the mystery surrounding it.
