James KingIt's BAFTA week and James King is giving his expert opinion, letting us know what to watch with his Top Movie Picks of the week. The Film's of the Week are Ladybird and The Shape of Water.

Ladybird (15) - The best coming-of-age film in years sees a teenage Saoirse Ronan falling in love and battling her mum in suburban California. It’s the sharp script from writer/director Greta Gerwig which makes this a must; the perfect mix of the bitchy and the heartfelt.
The Shape of Water (15) - Filmmaker Guillermo de Toro beautifully blends 50s melodrama and ‘B’movie sci-fi for this lush, entirely unexpected drama. I mean, who’d have thought the tale of a mute woman falling in love with an undersea monster could have you reduced to tears?
