Hunky Dory sounds interesting, although it had mixed reviews from other bloggers and I do have High School Musical flashbacks. But then again, High School Musical would never have a snogging (making out) scene.
"In the heat of the summer of 1976, keen drama teacher Vivienne fights sweltering heat and general teenage apathy to put on an end of year music version of Shakespeare's The Tempest. To engage her students, she uses hits of the time, which will be performed by a fresh young cast led by rising star Aneurin Barnard." (IMDb)
London Paris New York - A romantic comedy, this film has everything I would want to watch. However, it's not only screening in limited to key cities, but it's also in Hindi and, as far as I can tell, there are no subtitles. Or at least, that information is not made clear in any of the cinemas I checked.
"Nikhil and Lalitha are two completely different individuals who are drawn to each other in spite of their differences -- or perhaps because of it. Follow their journey as they meet in London, Paris and New York for a night in each city." (IMDb)
This Means War is just hilarious! And if you don't like romantic comedies... Well... Ladies, watch it just because Tom Hardy is in it. Those lips and the tattoos? It's aaaallll worth it. ^_^
"Two top CIA operatives wage an epic battle against one another after they discover they are dating the same woman." (IMDb)

A Man's Story is a must for any fashion lover, especially blokes who love a good suits or anyone into tailoring. It tells the story of British fashion design and king of tailoring Ozwald Boateng. Absolutely fascinating, especially since he had to overcome many adversities to get where he is today. It's only available in key cities, though, so check before heading for the cinema.
Flying the British Film flag is Hard Boiled Sweets. A must for any gangster or crime film lover. Like anything of that genre, expect nudity, swearing, drugs, the lot. So this is a Certificate 15. It's on a very limited release schedule, only screening in London and Basildon at the moment.
