Still struggling with the death of her fiancé, Mira (Priyanka Chopra Jonas) unintentionally sends a series of romantic texts to his old phone number – not realising it has since been reassigned to Rob (Sam Heughan), a journalist. Captivated by her messages and unsure how to find a way to meet Mira in person, he seeks advice from the subject of the feature article he is currently writing: music superstar Celine Dion.
Based on a 2016 German film and the novel that inspired it, this modern-day rom-com explores how love can come from the most unexpected places. And who better to teach us about love than Dion, playing herself in her very first film role?

The year is 1987 and Father Gabriele Amorth (Russell Crowe) is the Vatican’s chief exorcist, a seasoned veteran who never fails to find levity in his demonic day job. Aided on his latest assignment by a rookie priest (Daniel Zovatto), Amorth travels to Spain to exorcise a young boy who has seemingly been possessed by a demon. What he uncovers, however, is much worse: a centuries-old conspiracy that the Vatican has desperately tried to keep hidden.
Based on the writings of Amorth, who was indeed the eponymous exorcist between 1986 and 2016, this pulpy horror flick is best taken with a grain of salt. But a thoroughly entertaining performance from Russell Crowe makes it all worthwhile.
