Drama, adventure, and horror at SA cinemas this weekend!

Cape Town - The tale of legendary South African outlaw John Kepe opens in cinemas this weekend.

Sew the Winter to My Skin is an action-adventure epic that retells the story of the Kepe, an outlaw of pre-apartheid SA. The film was SA's official Oscar's foreign language submission but sadly didn't make the cut.

Also showing: Melissa McCarthy in her Oscar nominated role as author Lee Israel, and Orange is the New Black’s Taylor Schilling makes her horror debut.

Here are the 3 new films releasing in SA cinemas:

Movie: Sew the Winter to My Skin

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: Not just another story of how white oppression affected people of colour, but a masterfully told tale of how one man defied the rules and made a name for himself as both a scoundrel and a hero.

Movie: The Prodigy

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: The Prodigy may never stand out as a truly extraordinary horror film, ironically, but there is something to be said for horror that is this solidly crafted and this fully aware of the allegorical potential of the genre.
