Must See Movies: May

At Reel Steel we want to make sure you’re getting the most of your cinematic enthusiasm, so each month we put together our short list of some of the best new releases, from popcorn munching explosion fests to the often weird and wonderful.
Take a look at the trailers below and see this month’s recommendations…


Vox Lux
released Friday May 3rd, 2019

A timely and unique examination of modern celebrity, Vox Lux is a stylish and absorbing modern portrait of a troubled pop star’s rise from the ashes of a national tragedy to global superstardom, featuring a sensational performance from Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman.


Madeline’s Madeline
released Friday May 10th, 2019

When Madeline joins a prestigious theatre group, director Evangeline knows she’s found her star.
Effortlessly talented, Madeline has an uncanny ability to pour herself into every role, but something isn’t quite right; Madeline’s stopped taking her medication, and her grasp on reality has started to slip.
As fact and fiction blur, Madeline is in danger of losing herself completely.

A mesmerising and distinctively shot film which explores ideas of race and identity, as well as the creative process and the overlap between art and life, alongside the pressures of growing up.


High Life
released Friday May 10th, 2019

In deep space, a group of criminals have volunteered for a mission to avoid imprisonment: investigate a black hole.
Lightyears from earth, they find themselves in an unimaginable situation as they approach their destination – the black hole in which time and space cease to exist.

From director Claire Denis (35 Shots of Rum), starring Robert Pattinson (Good Time), Mia Goth (Suspiria) and Juliette Binoche (Clouds of Sils Maria), High Life explores what it means to be human, and promises to be one of the most daring films of the year.
