Be it a blockbuster Hollywood superhero action movie, a thought-provoking art film or a light comedy, we all love going to the cinema to relax or catch up with friends. Let us see what the weekend has in store in the cinemas of Budapest.

We have another real-life inspired film debuting this week, too: Beautiful Boy adapts the best-selling memoirs of David and Nic Sheff. Nic (Timothée Chalamet) and David’s (Steve Carell) relationship as father and son appear normal and loving from the outside, but when Nic is about to go to university, things spiral out of control, and he is succumbed by his drug addiction.
The film is said to portray almost all stages of addiction with truthfulness without trying to point a finger at anybody – it rather focuses on connecting things and discovering the triggering events.

After becoming a widow, Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan) decides not to remarry but to take back what is rightfully hers, the throne of Scotland from Queen Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie).
Josie Rourke’s directorial debut features the tension between two strong-willed and intelligent women in power surrounded by men who wish to see them fall.
History dramas today have a very important task to perform: to present the past in the way that the already-known facts become enjoyable once again – with two Academy Award Nominees playing the two queens, this should be a captivating experience.

A fishing boat captain, Baker Dill (Matthew McConaughey), becomes haunted by his past when his ex-wife (Anne Hathaway) appears out of nowhere, asking for his help to kill her current drunkard husband (Jason Clarke). Baker’s life soon spins out of control, and he soon realises that nothing is what it seems.
Some critics argue that the film sets the bar high when it comes to expectations, trying to appear as a mystery full of twists, but it is rather like a film noir parody.
Still, the number of superstar actors and an Academy Award Winner lead gives us some hope that Steven Knight’s film based on his very own book is an enjoyable experience.
