Cineroom would like to present you a bumper ten films that will be released worldwide this month in our ‘Films for’ feature.
February sees the awards season come to a close with a few one-word belters. We have Loving, Fences and the beautiful Moonlight. We have the German comedy Toni Erdmann, the hilarious animation film The LEGO Batman Movie, the intriguing tale of The Founder and the powerful 20th Century Women.
Rounding out the month will be the captivating A Cure for Wellness…
A practical joking father tries to reconnect with his hard working daughter by creating an outrageous alter ego and posing as her CEO's life coach.

The LEGO Batman Movie

A timeless story of human self-discovery and connection, Moonlight chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami.

The three films below will certainly be a trio that you should catch in February. 20th Century Women stars a plethora of talent in Elle Fanning and Annette Bening – the latter of which could have squeaked an Oscar nomination. The Founder and A Cure for Wellness are two very different films but will certainly entertain. ‘ACFW’ sees Gore Verbinski return to the big screen after four years out.
