The best films at the cinema this week

A selection of the best movies currently screening in Beijing

Taking place in the immediate aftermath of President John F. Kennedy's assassination, Jackie follows Jackie Kennedy as she's forced to confront the unimaginable. Nuanced and complex (thanks in large part to Natalie Portman's stunning Oscar-nominated performance), Pablo Larraín’s daring character study of history's favourite first lady is masterfully constructed and intensely affecting.

You can book tickets for all general release films – usually at least 50 percent cheaper than walk-in prices at the cinema – through Time Out Tickets. Click on the film you want to see, choose your seat and pay via card or WeChat – it's as easy as that. See here for a full list of all the movies in Beijing theatres.
