Silver Screen Weekly - What's Coming Up At The Cinema From Friday 15th March

Our film critic and media correspondent has been looking and trawling the new releases. Here's what you can see on the big screen this week.

From Friday 15th March

Drive-Away Dolls (15)
From Ethan Cohen comes this road movie crime thriller comedy, that sees Jamie (Margaret Qualley) regret a break-up with her girlfriend Marian (Geraldine Viswanathan). Attempting a fresh stat they head on a trip to Tallahassee, where they cross paths with some increasingly inept criminals. Co-starring the likes of Pedro Pascal, Matt Damon and Colman Domingo, Drive-Away Dolls is a wild ride that is a fun concoction bolstered by two terrific lead performances and some memorable insanity on this journey.
