WIDESCREEN presents the current cinema releases in the week from Thursday, January 30th to Wednesday, February 5th. Some dramas can be seen on the screen this week: For example, "Sory We Missed You" deals with a British family after the economic crisis or the Dutch production "Romys Salon" deals with dementia in a family environment. The Russian production "(No) Perfect Man" also has something for fans of romantic comedy. We have a special note this week for the film adaptations of two books, on the one hand with "Little Women, which is based on the novel of the same name by Louisa May Alcott" and "The Fantastic Journey of Dr. Dolittle" after the now 100 year old children's book original.

Little women
Jo (Saorise Ronan) is one of four sisters who grew up in modest circumstances in the aftermath of the civil war. When her sister Beth (Eliza Scanlen) threatens to die, she returns to her parents' home. It shows how different the sisters are. It tells a coming-of-age story after the American Civil War based on a novel by Louisa May Alcott.

The fantastic journey of Dr. Dolittle
After the death of his beloved wife, Dr. Dolittle (Robert Downey Jr.) retired to his property, where he can speak to the animals living there. When the young Queen Victoria (Jessie Buckley) falls ill, he embarks on a journey with a handful of animals and a young apprentice to find the cure for the Queen. But the destination of that trip also promises a personal challenge for Dr. Dolittle.
