First up it’s Jessie Buckley, Olivia Coleman and Timothy Spall in Wicked Little Letters (15).

When people in Littlehampton - including conservative local Edith - begin to receive letters full of hilarious profanities, rowdy Irish migrant Rose is charged with the crime.

Suspecting something is amiss, the town's women investigate.

Also new this week at the High Street venue is the comedy drama American Fiction (15).

Jefferey Wright stars as Monk, a frustrated novelist who's fed up with the establishment that profits from black entertainment that relies on tired and offensive tropes.

To prove his point, he uses a pen name to write an outlandish black book of his own, a book that propels him to the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain.

Also still showing at the Arc is the Bob Marley biopic Bob Marley: One Love (12A), while for kids there Migration (PG), The Jungle Bunch: World Tour (U), Peppa’s Cinema Party (U) and this week’s Kid’s Club, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem (PG).
