  • Cast: Miles Teller, Ted Levine, Katey Sagal

The story of Vinny Pazienza (Teller), a kid from Rhode Island who became a boxing champion, suffered a devastating tragedy and fought another battle to reclaim his life. Workmanlike boxing and redemption drama, all too reminiscent of many others; it doesn't help that Teller's Vinny is a stubborn, obnoxious ass who it's…

  • 1 star
  • 2016
  • US
  • 97 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Frankel
  • Cast: Will Smith, Edward Norton, Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren

Ad-man Howard (Smith) is numbed with grief from the loss of his child, and his business partners plot to undermine him, but it turns out they have their own personal problems blah blah blah. The best that can be said for this torturously schmaltzy Christmas Carol rip-off is that it's shorter than other bad Will Smith films.

  • UK release: 16 December 2016

Aisholpan Nurgaiv, a 13 year old girl, trains to become the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter. Crowd-pleasing documentary which skirts some of the deeper issues, and Ridley's monotonous voice-over doesn't help, but only a cold heart would fail to be stirred by Aisholpan's…

  • Directed by: Ken Loach
  • Cast: Dave Johns, Hayley Squires

Newly widowed Newcastle joiner Daniel (Johns) has worked all his life, but when his doctor tells him that his heart condition means he can't work, the welfare system disagrees.

  • 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…

  • UK release: 13 January 2017

In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling).

Live by Night

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • 128 min
  • Directed by: Ben Affleck
  • Cast: Ben Affleck, Scott Eastwood, Zoe Saldana

Joe Coughlin (Affleck) is a mobster and WW1 veteran who aims to avenge the death of his lover. Lavish production values and fine performances aside, Affleck the actor doesn't quite get under his character's skin and this isn't up to the standard of his previous directorial work.
