During the German occupation of the Channel Islands, Lily James is Juliet, a struggling writer who visits a book club in Guernsey whose members have found solace in her otherwise failing book. On meeting the eccentric members of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society she begins to write about life on the island in the occupation and tell their story.

Guys, slick your hair and girls, sew yourself into the tightest pair of leggings you can find – because Grease is returning to cinemas to celebrate its fortieth anniversary. Hopelessly devoted fans can croon along with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John once again in the 1950s high school musical.

At the other end of the musical spectrum, albeit still with leather jackets and uncomfortably tight leggings, comes Scream For Me Sarajevo. This documentary follows Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson as he takes his other band, Skunkworks, to perform amid the Sarajevo siege in 1994. Deeper than just your regular concert movie, it shows the lives of the fans caught up in the conflict as Dickinson faces the near impossible task of playing a show in an active war zone.
