6 movies to watch in November

Hollywood will have a blockbuster November with lots of movies to watch. This November you should watch these 6movies. Sorry We Missed You Ken Loach might be 83, but the great British director is as angry as ever about the plight of the working class. With the help of his usual screenwriter, Paul Laverty, he is as adept as ever at making cinema-goers angry, too. His heartbreaking new exposé of the gig economy focuses on Ricky (Kris Hitchen), a man who provides for his family by driving a delivery van around Newcastle on a zero-hours contract. If he works hard enough, he can make a living, but if he is forced to take a day off, he's as good as dead. Released 1 November in the UK and Ireland, 8 November in Finland and Norway and 14 November in Italy and Netherlands Last Christmas Queen, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles... they've all inspired nostalgic films in the last couple of years. And now it's George Michael's turn. A festive romantic comedy with a chronic illness thrown in, Last Christmas stars Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as a Bridget Jones-y shop assistant whose life in London is a mess, and Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians) as the eligible bachelor who tidies it up. Released on 7 November in Australia and New Zealand, 8 November in the US and Canada and 15 November in the UK and Ireland Charlie's Angels Hollywood action movies starring women are vanishingly rare. But Hollywood action movies starring women that are written and directed by women, too? Charlie's Angels is one of the first. A reboot of the 1970s TV series, not to mention the two films from 2000 and 2003, the new version is masterminded by Elizabeth Banks, whose first feature film as a director was Pitch Perfect 2. She also plays Bosley, the intermediary between the mysterious Charles Townsend and the female detectives he pays to go on globe-trotting adventures. Charlie's latest Angels are Kristen Stewart, Ella Balinska, and Naomi Scott, although they'll struggle to outshine the trio who recorded the film's theme song, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey. Released on 14 November in Australia and Hong Kong, 15 November in the US, Canada and Mexico and 29 November in the UK and Ireland Queen & Slim Another sign that Hollywood is beginning to change, Queen & Slim is a romantic thriller written and directed by two women of colour. Its director, Melina Matsoukas, is the Grammy-winning creative behind numerous Beyoncé videos, and screenwriter, Lena Waithe, is the Emmy-winning creator of The Chi. It will be released on 27 November in US and Canada. Frozen II Frozen was the highest grossing film of 2013 and, until The Lion King remake overtook it, it was the highest grossing animated film ever, so it's hardly surprising that the studio made an exception in this case. To put it another way: they couldn't let it go. The premise of Frozen II is that Elsa, Anna, Olaf and Kristoff leave Arendelle to seek the source of Elsa's icy magic. Although the millions of children who loved the first film are older now, so they might give it a frosty reception. This will be released on 20 November in Germany and France and 22 November in the UK and the US Knives Out Agatha Christie's murder mysteries are regularly adapted for the screen, but Rian Johnson's sparkling, star-studded Knives Out is something far less common - a country-house whodunnit in the Christie tradition, but with a brand new plot and a political agenda all of its own. When a best-selling author (Christopher Plummer) is found dead in his study, he seems to have cut his own throat. Yet he could have been killed by his daughter (Jamie Lee Curtis), his son-in-law (Don Johnson), his daughter-in-law (Toni Collette), his grandson (Chris Evans) or his nurse (Ana de Armas). An eccentric southern detective (Daniel Craig) investigates, stealing the show in the process. On general release from 27 November.
