20 Must-See Movies to Catch at SXSW 2017

From Charlize Theron kicking ass to music docs, midnight movies and the making of 'The Room' – what to see at the Austin-based film fest

'Atomic Blonde'

'Atomic Blonde'

Originally titled The Coldest City (after its 2012 graphic-novel source material) before getting a name-makeover that Imperator Furiosa would love, this Charlize Theron joint finds our lithe action-movie star hunting down a list of espionage double-agents on the eve of the Berlin Wall coming down. Given that it's directed by David Leitch – one half of the team that gave us Keanu Reeves' knock-down, drag-out John Wick franchise – you should expect some mondo ass-kicking and gun-fu shenanigans. James McAvoy and Kingsman's breakout star Sofia Boutella are along for the ride.
