A Christmas Star

  • 2015
  • UK
  • 82 min
  • Directed by: Richard Elson
  • Cast: Rob James-Collier, Suranne Jones, Bronagh Waugh

  • 2016
  • US
  • 123 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Timur Bekmambetov
  • Cast: Jack Huston, Morgan Freeman, Toby Kebbell, Nazanin Boniadi
  • UK release: 7 September 2016

Judah Ben-Hur (Huston) is a wronged nobleman who does a lot of stuff but chiefly races in a chariot against adopted brother Messala (Kebbell). Forgettable and largely pointless remake of the 1959 classic, heavy on the action but light on plot, characterisation or entertainment.

Captain Fantastic

  • 3 stars
  • 2016
  • US
  • 118 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Matt Ross
  • Written by: Matt Ross
  • Cast: Viggo Mortensen, George MacKay, Samantha Isler

Ben (Mortensen) has raised a family of six off the grid in the Pacific Northwest, teaching them survival skills and science but leaving them unprepared for the rest of the world. The film doesn't face how Ben seems more like a cult leader than a great dad and it's contrived and contradictory, but Mortensen is a delight.

A programme of events held across the Highlands to showcase the history and influence of Harris Tweed.

Faclan: The Hebridean Book Festival

Since moving beyond the equinox to the cusp of winter and focusing on themes such as Second Sight, the Supernatural, Blood, Belief and Pilgrimage this festival at An Lanntair has attracted major names.

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…

Kubo and the Two Strings

  • 4 stars
  • 2016
  • US
  • 102 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Travis Knight
  • Cast: Art Parkinson, Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara, Ralph Fiennes, Brenda Vaccaro, George Takei
  • UK release: 9 September 2016

One-eyed origami expert Kubo (Parkinson) joins forces with no-nonsense Monkey (Theron) and goofy human/insect warrior Beetle (McConaughey) on a quest to defeat the Moon King (Fiennes). Breathtakingly beautiful stop-motion animation, maybe too scary for young kids, but with plenty of humour, fine voice performances and a…

Mark Steel: Who Do I Think I Am?

  • 3 stars

Mark Steels talks about being adopted, and the remarkable things he discovered when searching for his biological parents.

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.
