There’s nothing better than avoiding the Boxing Day bargain hunters and participating in the time-honoured tradition of digesting the previous day’s over-indulgences in the comfort of an air-conditioned movie theatre.
Not sure what’s on? We’ve got you covered.
These are the movies released this Boxing Day:
With a kick-arse female cast of Meryl Streep, Helena Bonham Carter and Carey Mulligan, Suffragette is sure to entertain and inspire.

The film is rated M for its mature themes and coarse language and has been well received by critics.
She’s a woman with an idea she’s determined to see succeed. Jennifer Lawrence stars as the movie’s namesake inventor and businesswoman, surrounded by a dysfunctional family and ruthless competitors.

From the director of American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook (two of the four films in which Cooper and Lawrence have starred together), the film is classified M for infrequent course language.
