Simmering tensions between neighbours in an Icelandic suburb are brought to boiling point in this terse black comedy. Inga (Björgvinsdóttir) and her husband have a beautiful tree in their back garden which, for them, symbolises tradition and security. But it throws a shadow over the woman next door’s sunbathing spot and she wants it cut down. Foliage isn’t the only thing under threat. Inga’s son has moved back home having been thrown out by his wife for watching a pornographic tape of himself and a former girlfriend. His arrival only complicates the situation in his parent’s home, and family members, possessions and pets are all caught up in what escalates into a vicious conflict. A caustic and astute look at contemporary culture and the clash between old and new worlds.

But when Chiquita is imprisoned for fraud, the passive Chela is left on her own. Using her old Daimler, she begins to provide a local taxi service for wealthy elderly ladies. In her new life as a chauffeur, Chela meets a younger, free-spirited woman who helps her rediscover her own desires.
A decade after Mamma Mia! The Movie, we’re heading back to the Greek island of Kalokairi for another joyful and infectious musical based on the songs of ABBA. Ten years on from the events of the first movie, Sophie (Seyfried) is pregnant and wants to learn more about her mother’s past. The film begins to flit between past and present as Sophie learns the trials Donna (Streep) went through before she was born, and how those experiences could solve her own worries. Lily James (Baby Driver, Darkest Hour) joins the fun under the sun to play Donna’s younger self, while Jeremy Irvine, Hugh Skinner and Josh Dylan feature as young Sam, Harry and Bill respectively.
