This week's new films

The Skin I Live In (15)

(Pedro Almodóvar, 2011, Spa) Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya, Jan Cornet, Marisa Paredes. 120 mins.

Almodóvar's silky skills and supreme confidence tempt respectable audiences into an elegantly twisted tale of surgical obsession that few others could pull off. It's best not to spell things out too much about this; suffice to say Banderas's project to create a new form of skin, with Anaya his captive guinea pig, doesn't go where you'd expect.

As usual, there's a lot going on beneath the surface.

One Day (12A)

(Lone Scherfig, 2011, Us) Anne Hathaway, Jim Sturgess, Rafe Spall. 108 mins.

Fans might not have had Hathaway's migratory trans-Pennine accent in mind when they fell in love with David Nicholls's calendar-crossing odd-couple romance on paper, and the equally wayward period details detract even further. A pity, given the promising material, but Grazia readers will lap it up just the same.

Conan The Barbarian (15)

The Little House

  • ScreenTerrier
Rising star Lucy Griffiths, best known for her role as Maid Marion in Robin Hood, stars in a new two-part drama for ITV The Little House. 24 year old Lucy (represented by Hamilton Hodell), has gone blonde again for the part of Ruth, as she did for her role as Jane in ITV's five-part drama Collision.

The Little House is a compelling two-part thriller exploring the psychological power struggles within one family and the lengths an obsessive mother will go to keep control of her son, based on the best-selling novel by Philippa Gregory. Adapted for television by Ed Whitmore, the drama also stars BAFTA-winning actress Francesca Annis, Tim Pigott-Smith, and Rupert Evans.

"The Little House is a creepy and compelling tale of the power struggles within one family. Ed's script brilliantly captures the claustrophobia and tension in Philippa's novel and constantly plays with your perceptions of the two central women.
