6 films in UAE cinemas this week

Eye In The Sky (15)
Helen Mirren, Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul and the late, great Alan Rickman star in the latest film to focus on the morality of modern-day warfare. In Eye in the Sky, Mirren and Rickman assume the roles of remote military commanders, tracking a suspected terrorist. The mission changes when a drone relays footage of a terror cell. The problem? A single civilian girl playing in the area, who would also be wiped out by any attack. Thus hangs the balance: one innocent life over thousands?

The DressMaker (15)
Rosalie Ham’s 1950s Australian novel gets a cinematic overhaul with Kate Winslet cast as haute-style misfit Tilly Dunage, returning to her dusty-town origins in Oz after a stint in Europe’s most exclusive fashion houses. Not gripped yet? No, we didn’t think so. Throw in some old wives tales, including a little boy’s death for which Tilly is somehow blamed, and The Dressmaker is actually more than the sum of its sewn up parts.

All Roads lead to Rome (PG)
Sarah Jessica Parker is the uptight mom who, lo and behold, turns out to be alright in this teenage-daughter-mother bond-building tale with an Italian backdrop. The plot centres on angsty daughter Summer, who attempts to abscond from the Tuscan villa to which her mother has so cruelly taken her on holiday to return to her no-good love interest in New York. SJP is left to enlist the help of a handsome stranger from her past to trek across Italy to find her rebellious child. Well, at least the scenery is very nice.
