March starts with the most self-explanatory title of the year – The Batman (3 March). It is what it says on the tin, with Robert Pattinson playing Bruce Wayne and, we assume, his tights-wearing, caped-wielding alter-ego.

We then slow things down with an introspective drama about couples finding love, inspiration, or both in Bergman Island (10 March), French director Mia Hansen-Løve and a solid cast led by Tim Roth, Vicky Krieps and Mia Wasikowska (see LSJ film giveaway below).

Anonymous Club (17 March) is an Australian documentary about Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett, the unbearable weight of fame, and how she battled her insecurities of her deserved success reaching international heights.

For a little independent Italian-British co-production, Nowhere Special (24 March) promises to be a little gem of a tearjerker from the same people who produced The Full Monty.

Finally, we end the month with The Duke (30 March). The last film by Roger Mitchell is a charming caper with Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren on the real story behind the sexagenary taxi driver who stole a Goya painting.
