A superb and lovable coming-of-age story about 13-year-old Kayla, tackling her final week of middle school and the move to high school. This scalpel-sharp coming-of-age story, written and directed by stand-up comedian Bo Burnham, follows 13-year-old Kayla (Elsie Fisher) as she moves from middle to high school. Struggling with the usual teenage insecurities, she creates YouTube advice vlogs that present a calmly confident persona to the world. The reality is a sullen resentment of her single dad, fragile friendships and a life that only seems to exist on social media. Funny, distinctive and endearing, this is a smart and lovable film to treasure.

A wonderful showcase of Aretha Franklin’s sublime talents in this film of a 1972 gospel concert in Los Angeles. In 1972 Aretha Franklin went back to her roots to perform a gospel concert in Los Angeles. Legal squabbles and issues with sound quality led to the film of the concert being shelved for 46 years, before this welcome release of a remastered version following the Queen of Soul’s death last year. It’s a no-frills film, shot in a small and modest church, without much in the way of narrative structure – it’s purely about the power of her voice; but you quickly discover you don’t need anything else. A must-see.
