Pick of the Week: Most of these movies this week have not had a massive marketing push around Australia as films in previous or coming weeks. The Space Between Us looks like another Young Adult love story aimed at teenagers and The Cure for Wellness looks incredibly weird so that could suit some people. That being said Loving strikes me as a great choice for a few reason. One that it is a historical drama set during a fascinating time period of the Civil Rights movement where it is hard to believe how bad people were treated. Two, it has a great cast including Oscar Nominated Ruth Negga. It is also exciting to see Nick Kroll branch out from comedy into a dramatic role.

Loving is my Pick of the Week.
