The Australian Ballet Live: Coppelia
A tale of magic and mischief set to Delibes' lilting score.
- 117 min
- Directed by: Steven Spielberg
- Written by: Roald Dahl (novel), Melissa Mathison (screenplay)
- Cast: Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Bill Hader, Rebecca Hall
- UK release: 22 July 2016
Eight year old Sophie (Barnhill) looks out her window one evening to discover something terrifying – the Big Friendly Giant (Rylance), who unlike his giant brothers doesn't actually want to eat her. Magical, funny and surprising stuff from Spielberg, lacking only some of the menace of Dahl's original, but genuinely…
Bridget Jones's Baby
- 123 min
- Directed by: Sharon Maguire
- Cast: Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey
- UK release: 16 September 2016
Bridget (Zellweger) is back, and pregnant, either by handsome American Jack (Dempsey) or Mark (Firth), the ex she never got over. Cue babymaking shenanigans. Bridget's fretting about being a 'spinster' comes across as self-hatred, and the men don't deserve the poor treatment she gives them. Not cute, not charming; just…
Liverpool's undisputed kings of soulful pop harmonies.
- 135 min
- Directed by: David Fincher
- Cast: Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Helena Bonham Carter
Masculinity is in a mess and consumerism is to blame. Men have become docile spectators of life according to Fight Club, Fincher's controversial adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's novel. In reckless response to this late 20th century malaise, Norton's compliant spectator teams up with Pitt's mischievous Tyler Durden to form…
- 100 min
- Directed by: Pablo Larrain
- Cast: Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, John Hurt
- UK release: 20 January 2017
Impressionistic, non-linear portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy, with an agonising, in-depth performance by Portman, who is gripping either while giving a shy television tour of the White House, or going to pieces in a bathroom. A mesmerising, technically virtuosic and remarkable reflection on celebrity, memory and the…
La La Land
- 126 min
- Directed by: Damien Chazelle
- Cast: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, J.K. Simmons
- UK release: 13 January 2017
In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). Audaciously inventive homage to classic movie musicals, technically wonderful and joyously emotional, with Gosling as a goofy idealistic charmer and Stone showing the versatility, vulnerability and talent of a young Shirley MacLaine.
- Directed by: Garth Davis
- Written by: Saroo Brierley, Luke Davies
- Cast: Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, David Wenham, Nicole Kidman
The true story of Saroo Brierley, who aged five is separated from his mother and family in India, declared lost and adopted by an Australian couple, only to track his family down years later using Google Earth. Hugely emotional, remarkably assured debut from Davis, with fine performances.
Manchester by the Sea
- 135 min
- Directed by: Kenneth Lonergan
- Cast: Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Lucas Hedges, Kyle Chandler, Gretchen Mol
- UK release: 13 January 2016
Lee (Affleck) is a carefree small-town guy who, when his brother dies, is given the job of raising his nephew (Hedges). A masterful blend of high drama, quirky characterisations and incidental detail, with a soulful, heartbreaking turn by Affleck at its core.

- 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…
Monty Python and The Holy Grail
- 90 min
- Directed by: Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones
- Written by: Monty Python
- Cast: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin
Medieval legend done the Python way with modern misconceptions and anachronisms piling on the absurdity. Oh, and the Knights Who Say 'Ni!' make a cherishable appearance.

- Written by: Quentin Tarantino
- Cast: John Travolta, Samuel L Jackson, Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Amanda Plummer, Maria de Medeiros, Ving Rhames, Eric Stoltz, Rosanna Arquette, Christopher Walken, Bruce Willis
Much more ambitious than Reservoir Dogs, the most awaited second feature of the 90s has many scenes that crackle with Tarantino wit, and a few others that fall flat as the writer-director bravely experiments. Interlocking stories in the pulp crime manner concern hitmen, ailing boxers, gang bosses and their molls, drug…

Comic bookstore assistant Clarence meets, sleeps with and marries novice hooker Alabama within a matter of hours, then the lovebirds find themselves on the run with an accidentally stolen case of cocaine.

- Written by: Mike Myers, Bonnie Turner, Terry Turner
- Cast: Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, Rob Lowe, Tia Carrere
Two heavy metal dorks hit the big time when their public access cable show is snapped up by a greedy TV exec for national primetime. Crammed full of TV and film pastiches, this US phenomenon has far more hits than misses, while Wayne and Garth revel in an even wackier vocabulary than cinematic first cousins Bill and Ted.
The Wizard of Oz
- 102 min
- Directed by: Victor Fleming/Norman Taurog/Richard Thorpe
- Cast: Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger
Miserable Dorothy runs away from home but is soon whisked up into a magical land where her adventures teach her that happiness is to be found in her own back yard. Classic stuff indeed, just chockful of great songs, characterisation and memorably garish design. Perhaps marginally less enjoyable for the curmudgeonly…
