  • UK release: 12 December 2014

Nikki (Bening) is a widow whose husband Garret (Harris) drowned on holiday in Mexico; five years later, she sees a stranger (Harris again) who looks exactly like him, and makes contact with him. Bening as terrific, the chemistry between her and Harris is palpable, and the film achieves a powerful and genuinely romantic…

Gone Girl

  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 145 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: David Fincher
  • Cast: Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike
  • UK release: 3 October 2014

Nick (Affleck) comes home on his fifth wedding anniversary to find his wife Amy (Pike) gone, and a series of revelations cast him in the worst possible light. Fincher directs with cool proficiency and a sense of brutal fun; Affleck is perfect, and Pike gives a bravura, breakout performance.

Sat 17 Jan 2015

£6.50 (£5.50) / 01592 583302

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US/New Zealand
  • 144 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Jackson
  • Written by: Fran Walsh (screenplay), Philippa Boyens (screenplay), Peter Jackson (screenplay), Guillermo del Toro (screenplay), J. R. R. Tolkien (novel)
  • Cast: Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Andy Serkis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Graham McTavish, Ken Stott, Hugo Weaving, James Nesbitt, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Billy Connolly, Evangeline Lilly, Christopher Lee, Cate Blanchett, Ian Holm, Elijah Wood
  • UK release: 12 December 2014

Smaug's on the rampage, Thorin is consumed with greed and war breaks out. The final instalment of Jackson's Middle-earth adventures features moments of spirited action and some terrific performances, but like the other Hobbit films it pales in comparison to the episodes of the previous trilogy.

The Homesman

  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US/France
  • 122 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Tommy Lee Jones
  • Cast: Tommy Lee Jones, Hilary Swank, Grace Gummer
  • UK release: 21 November 2014

When Mary Cuddy (Swank) needs help escorting three madwomen from frontier Nebraska to Iowa, her only help is from rascally claim jumper George Briggs (Jones). A sombre, frequently horrific depiction of the pioneer experience, enlivened with flashes of sardonic humour and a few meaty cameos; Swank is heartbreaking and…

Fri 30 Jan 2015

£6.50 (£5.50) / 01592 583302

The Imitation Game

  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • UK/USA
  • 113 min
  • Directed by: Morten Tyldum
  • Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode
  • UK release: 14 November 2014

Historical drama about Alan Turing (Cumberbatch), father of modern computer science; how he and a team of codebreakers figured out how to beat the German Enigma machine during WWII, and his tragically early death. Triumphant slice of British heritage drama, with great emotional force and a touching performance from…

£5.50 / 01592 583302

£6.50 (£5.50) / 01592 583302

Interstellar

  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US/UK
  • 169 min
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Jessica Chastain, Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway
  • UK release: 7 November 2014

Cooper (McConaughey) is a pilot-turned-farmer who's recruited for an intergalactic mission to find humanity a new home. Despite awe and nail-biting tension, there's too much clunky exposition and cinematic clichés, and although Nolan's intentions to make a singular and cerebral film are admirable, it all gets a bit silly.

  • Russia
  • 140 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Andrey Zvyagintsev
  • Cast: Aleksei Serebryakov, Elena Lyadova, Vladimir Vdovichenkov, Roman Madyanov
  • UK release: 7 November 2014

Kolya (Serebryakov) has a beautiful wife (Lyadova), a healthy son (Pokhodaev) and a fine home, but he soon has to content with threats to them all. Despite heart-tugging content and a solemn emotional climate, it's an oddly uplifting tale, thanks to Zvvagintsev's ability to infuse his storytelling with small mysteries and…

Mr Turner

  • 5 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 150 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Mike Leigh
  • Cast: Timothy Spall, Paul Jesson, Dorothy Atkinson
  • UK release: 31 October 2014

Portrait of the last 25 years of the life of painter Joseph Mallord William Turner (Spall). A work of great beauty, wit and poignancy, presenting the artist as unapologetically gruff but sympathetic and spectacularly eccentric. Leigh's latest demonstrates a command of his craft to rival that of his subject.

National Theatre Live: The Hard Problem

  • 2015
  • Written by: Tom Stoppard

A screening of National Theatre's production of Tom Stoppard's play.

Nightcrawler

  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 117 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Dan Gilroy
  • Written by: Dan Gilroy
  • Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Bill Paxton
  • UK release: 31 October 2014

Lou (Gyllenhaal) is a young man in LA who finds work as a freelance cameraman, feeding grisly news footage to the sensationalistic networks. A characterful satire of the cynicism, manipulation and inhumanity prevalent in TV news, with showstopping work from Gyllenhaal as the motor-mouthed protagonist.

Paddington

  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 95 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw (voice), Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins
  • UK release: 28 November 2014

The story of an illegal immigrant from Peru and his efforts to be integrated into British society. He's a bear, by the way. Whishaw imbues the CGI Paddington with immense charm, the rest of the cast are excellent and the exuberant direction and smart, knowing script make for a genuine delight.

Sun 1 Feb 2015

£6.50 (£5.50) / 01592 583302

The Penguins of Madagascar

  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 92 min
  • Directed by: Eric Darnell, Simon J. Smith
  • Cast: Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, John DiMaggio, Christopher Knights, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, Peter Stormare
  • UK release: 5 December 2014

The espionage-savvy penguins team up with an interspecies special forces group, to tangle with octopus/scientist Dr Octavius Brine (Malkovich). The knockabout style offers few chances for genuine drama and the result is a lighthearted, frenetic but rather unimaginative romp, a step down from the psychedelic wit of…

Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast

  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 76 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Steve Loter
  • Cast: Voices of: Mae Whitman, Megan Hilty, Lucy Liu, Raven-Symoné, Anjelica Huston, Ginnifer Goodwin, Rosario Dawson, Mel B

When Tink's friend Fawn (Goodwin) befriends a mysterious creature in the woods, scout fairy Nyx (Dawson) decides to capture it before it can do any damage. The animation is agile and colourful and Goodwin delivers a likable central performance; it could have been funnier, but otherwise a charming addition to the franchise.
