  • UK release: 30 December 2016

Callum Lynch (Fassbender) is a convicted murderer who wakes up in a research facility to find that his ancestor was a 15th century Spanish assassin and he's to travel in time and wage war against the Knights Templar. The set pieces are spectacular but the flip-flopping between past and present messes up the rhythm, and…

  • 4 stars
  • 2016
  • US
  • 89 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Roger Ross Williams
  • Cast: Owen Suskind, Ron Suskind,
  • UK release: 9 December 2016

At the age of three, Owen Suskind was diagnosed with severe autism and stopped talking. His parents finally realised that his passion for Disney animated movies gave him a way of communicating. Williams doesn't shy away from complex issues such as the limitations of interacting with the world via Disney, but incredibly…

  • US
  • 103 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ron Clements, John Musker
  • Cast: Auli'i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Scherzinger, Rachel House, Jemaine Clement, Alan Tudyk
  • UK release: 2 December 2016

Moana (Carvalho) is a plucky Polynesian girl who revives the voyaging tradition of her island tribe, with the help of buffoonish demigod Maui (Johnson, exuberantly sending himself up.) The unabashed positivity is pure Disney but Bush's zingy screenplay satirises the studio's princess obsession and there's a refreshing…

  • 4 stars
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 88 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Alice Lowe
  • Cast: Alice Lowe, Kayvan Novak, Gemma Whelan, Kate Dickie

Ruth (Lowe) is an expectant mother who starts to hear her unborn baby urging her to kill people. Lowe's blackly comic, squirmingly uncomfortable directorial debut is remarkably well-realised, with an impressive cast and her own eerily passive, brilliantly-timed performance at the core. Enjoyably provocative.

  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Cast: Adam Driver, Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, Tadanobu Asano
  • UK release: 1 January 2016

Scorsese's long-planned passion project, an adaptation of Shusaku Endo's 1966 novel about two 17th century Catholic priests (Garfield & Driver) who travel to Japan in search of their mentor (Neeson). Fervently told and unusually cerebral – if a little black and white – it's a work of courageous severity and…

Tue 21 Feb

Zoe Lyons: Little Misfit

Razor-sharp wit and incisive, offbeat gags from the award-winning stand-up.
