Silver Screen Weekly - What's Coming Up At The Cinema From Friday 3 November 2023

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 3rd November

The Royal Hotel (18)
Director Kitty Green’s psychological thriller sees Americans Hanna (Julia Garner) and Liz (Jessica Henwick) backpacking in Australia, where they take a temporary live-in job at an outback mining town, where things begin to grow uneasy and soon rapidly escalate out of control. A paranoid and unnerving excise in suspense, Green’s film features terrific performances and is a breakout work of nerve-testing escalating tension. Co-starring Hugo Weaving.
