It is nearly the end of August and the end of summer is upon us, but good cinema is only just getting started.
With the summer blockbusters out of the way we can now focus on the autumn releases. Prepare for a wealth of hidden gems that you may have missed whilst attentions were on The Dark Knight Rises and other mega bucks movies.
