When two strangers take part in a mysterious drug trial they are assured it has no complications or side-effects but will solve all of their problems permanently. But things do not go as planned. While Maniac is in the sci-fi realm it's more a story about loneliness, human connections and friendships. A bit weirder but more engaging than The Innocents.
Idris Elba stars in the brutal war film set in an unnamed African country. The film focuses on the experiences of Agu (Abraham Attah), a nine-year-old boy forced to become a soldier in Elba’s rebel army.
