Another Mother's Son

  • 2 stars
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 43min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Menaul
  • Cast: Jenny Seagrove, Julian Kostov, Ronan Keating, John Hannah, Amanda Abbington
  • UK release: 24 March 2017

Louisa Gold (Seagrove) is a widowed Jersey shopkeeper with two sons fighting in WW2 when the Channel Islands are occupied by the Germans; she takes in an escaped Russian POW (Kostov). The look and atmosphere of 40s Jersey is well caught, but the story is predictable and it feels like a tame TV drama.

Churchill

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jonathan Teplitzky
  • Written by: Alex von Tunzelmann
  • Cast: Brian Cox, Miranda Richardson, John Slattery
  • UK release: 16 June 2017

The story of how Churchill (Cox) was vehemently opposed to the Normandy landings of 1944. Intelligent, sometimes moving drama with an exceptional cast (especially Purefoy as a touching George VI) but not notably cinematic, stringing together a series of confrontations with shots of Churchill being driven from one place to…

Going in Style

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • 1h 36min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Zach Braff
  • Cast: Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Alan Arkin

A slick, amiable if somewhat safe cover version of an unjustly neglected 1979 comedy, this time starring Oscar-winners Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin as poverty-stricken old-timers who decide to take their revenge on a banking system.

Hampstead

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 42min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joel Hopkins
  • Written by: Robert Festinger
  • Cast: Diane Keaton, James Norton, Brendan Gleeson

Emily (Keaton) is an American widow living in Hampstead who falls for the grumpy Donald (Gleeson), who lives in a shack on Hampstead Heath. Twee later-life rom-com with Ketaon in pure ditz mode; her and Gleeson’s chemistry is appealing, but there are no surprises.

The Sense of an Ending

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 48min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ritesh Batra
  • Cast: Jim Broadbent, Harriet Walter, Michelle Dockery, Emily Mortimer
  • UK release: 14 April 2017

Tony Webster (Broadbent) is a grumpy old git who’s on good terms with his ex wife (Walter); when he’s bequeathed the diary of an old friend, he is prompted to relive his schooldays. This adaptation of a Julian Barnes novel feels hokey and safe, although it has a nice cast and the scenes between Broadbent and Walter are…

Their Finest

  • 3 stars
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 1h 57min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Lone Scherfig
  • Cast: Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy
  • UK release: 21 April 2017

London, 1940: fledgling screenwriter Catrin Cole (Arterton) joins the Ministry of Information’s Film Division and starts working on a propaganda movie. Scherfig wraps the war in a cosy cloak of nostalgia in a way that dulls moments of high anxiety, and despite a fine ensemble it’s all too muffled and mild-mannered.

The Time of Their Lives

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 44min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Roger Goldby
  • Written by: Roger Goldby
  • Cast: Joan Collins, Pauline Collins, Franco Nero
  • UK release: 10 March 2017

Priscilla (P Collins) is a neglected housewife who finds herself on coach trip to France with some dotty pensioners, including forgotten film star Helen (J Collins). The Collinses make an engaging double act and it works best when it goes a little off the rails, but this amiable comedy occasionally feel unfinished.
