It can feel like you’re drowning after awards season.

There's no time to WATCH a movie, let alone sit down and research what it's about, what the reviews are like, and whether it's still in the cinema or not.
So we've thrown together a 2017 Golden Globes movie 'cheat sheet' of sorts. The movies you can still see at the cinema. What they were nominated for. And what they're about.
Take a peek, friends...
