More about this week's new releases:

The Secret Garden (PG)
Frances Hodges Burnett’s classic story of a young girl discovering a magical, hidden garden has remained a favourite for more than a hundred years. It has been brought to the big screen three times already, and now, a new version directed by Marc Munden will introduce a new generation to this tale of friendship and discovery.

Kajillionaire (12A)
A beautifully bizarre film whose strange quirkiness allows for sharp observations about family, loneliness and the terror of emotional intimacy, Kajillionaire is further proof of writer-director Miranda July’s ability to bend reality to her will. Evan Rachel Wood plays the unhappy daughter of scammer parents who wonders if there is more to life than total disengagement from the world around her.

The Other Lamb (18)
Polish director Malgorzata Szumowska (Mug) takes an uncompromising look at gender politics with The Other Lamb. Her first film in English, and her most controversial yet, this is an unsettling and atmospheric drama about a group of women and girls who live in thrall to a single, male spiritual leader.
