This weekend marks the sweet spot of summer. You’ve adapted to the heat. It isn’t a national holiday. You still have a few weeks to knock off the rest of your summer bucket list (that battered copy of American Gods won’t re-read itself). Instead of lounging by the pool or meeting up with friends and family, why not kick back and go into a cold dark room with a flickering light amongst a group of popcorn-eating strangers? Not sure which film to see? Well, as with every Friday, we’ve compiled a list of tweets, our reviews and some recommended reading for you, our film connoisseur-filled readership.

Wish I Was Here (Kristen Lopez’s ★★ Review)
Just watched #wishiwashere Not bad. Not as good as Garden State, but not many movies are. Very similar feel to The Last Kiss.
