The Accountant

  • US
  • 128 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Gavin O'Connor
  • Cast: Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, JK Simmons
  • UK release: 4 November 2016

Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a high-functioning autistic accountant who's also a trained sniper and lethal martial arts fighter, who uncovers corporate skulduggery in his employers. Affleck's wry, low-key performance is actually a good fit and Kendrick is sweet and likeable as his fellow geek, but it's top-heavy with…

It's A Wonderful Life

  • 5 stars
  • 1946
  • US
  • 129 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Frank Capra
  • Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers

Small-town boy Stewart runs into financial difficulties and is on the brink of suicide when an elderly angel descends to earth to show him all the good his life has done for those around him. Archetypal Capra sentimentality with a superbly detailed fantasy framework and one of Stewart's most lovable performances. One to…

The Light Between Oceans

  • 3 stars
  • 2016
  • US/Australia/UK/New Zealand
  • 132 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Derek Cianfrance
  • Cast: Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander, Rachel Weisz, Bryan Brown, Jack Thompson

Tom (Fassbender) is a repressed former soldier working as a lighthouse keeper in post-WWI Australia; one day he and his wife Isabel (Vikander) find a live baby and dead man in a rowboat. Weighty stuff, but the laboriously worthy screenplay and overwrought direction make it disappointingly conventional and mawkish where it…

Miracle on 34th Street

  • 3 stars
  • 1994
  • US
  • 110 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Les Mayfield
  • Cast: Richard Attenborough, Elizabeth Perkins, Dylan McDermott.

Kriss Kringle (Attenborough) is a department store Santa who goes one better and claims he's the genuine article. Only by winning a court case – and convincing one cynical little girl (Mara Wilson) can he put the joy and magic back into the festive period. A fairly unnecessary remake, but this secular fable still sparkles…

The Night Before

  • 3 stars
  • 2015
  • US
  • 101 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jonathan Levine
  • Cast: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Anthony Mackie
  • UK release: 4 December 2015

Ethan (Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Rogen) and Chris (Mackie) hit the streets of New York in search of the elusive Nutcracker Ball, but each has their own reason to want to get utterly wasted. Conventional Christmas comedy, heavily reminiscent of Rogen and Goldberg's Superbad but not as good, with crude silliness and…

Seann Walsh: One for the Road

Sharp and energetic observational humour from this fast-riser.
