Your Weekend Cinema Fix Is Here: Your Sister’s Sister, Killer Joe and Friend’s With Kids

Friends With Kids

Fancy a trip to the cinema this weekend? Course you do.

Three cracking - and very different - films are released today and Grazia have reviewed them all for your viewing pleasure.

Whether you’re after comedy, action or family awkwardness played out in front of your very eyes, one of these is bound to hit the spot.

You’re after… A thoughtful indie flick

Sibling relationships get complicated as best pals Mark Duplass and Emily Blunt discover truths about themselves when they retreat to a remote cabin with the latter’s half-sister (Rosemarie Dewitt). Most of the provocative comedy-drama, from director of Humpday, Lynn Shelton,

was improvised, for that authentic feel. It pays off.

You’re after… A twisted thriller 

Matthew McConaughey leads the way, as a cowboy hit-man hired to kill the mother of a trailer-trash family. British up-and-coming actress Juno Temple (The Three Musketeers, St Trinian’s) is excellent as an innocent little sister Dottie, who is pawned to Joe (McConaughey) as a ‘retainer’ whilst her family find the cash to pay Joes for his services. Weird.

You’re after… An intelligent rom-com

Jennifer Westfeldt (Jon Hamm’s very lucky lady) writes, produces, directs <and> stars in this smart, intelligent and very funny rom-com about two friends who decided to have a baby together and avoid the romantic complications (cue lots of complications, obviously). Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Chris O’Dowd, Megan Fox – and Jon Hamm himself – also star. So what are you waiting for?
