  • UK/France
  • 100 min
  • 15
  • 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. Familiar territory for Loach and screenwriter Laverty but despite unapologetic heartstring-tugging, the subject – the system's intrinsic cruelty…

  • 15
  • 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…

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gurinder Chadha
  • Cast: Gillian Anderson, Michael Gambon, Hugh Bonneville, Manish Dayal, Huma Qureshi
  • UK release: 3 March 2017

Lord Louis Mountbatten (Bonneville) is to oversee Britain’s withdrawal from India and the ensuing partition, but he and his wife Edwina (Anderson) witness the violence erupting through the country.
