Darkest Hour

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 54min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Joe Wright
  • Cast: Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Ben Mendlesohn, Ronald Pickup
  • UK release: 12 January 2018

May 1940: the situation in Europe is worsening, and Britain needs a new prime minister. The latest in a very long line of recent Churchill performances is by far the best: Oldman is virtually unrecognisable and attacks the part with relish, with Scott Thomas excellent as his wife Clemmie. It may veer into hero worship but…

Dead Man's Hand

Written by: Seymour MatthewsThis captivating thriller employs a play within a play theme in a singularly exciting manner. At first, it seems to be the usual "Agatha Christie" type play two couples lured to a remote Italian villa to be murdered one by one. It is only when this play is well advanced that we learn we are…

The Death of Stalin

  • 5 stars
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 47min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Armando Iannucci
  • Cast: Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Buscemi, Jason Isaacs, Olga Kurylenko, Michael Palin, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Andrea Riseborough, Rupert Friend
  • UK release: 20 October 2017

When Joseph Stalin abruptly dies in 1953, his subordinates immediately start jockeying for the position of his replacement. The political backstabbing makes for maximum black comedy and exuberant farce, and the deft interplay of a gifted cast makes the whole film a consistent joy.

Sat 16 Mar 2019

£5–£6 / 0121 373 2761

Dunkirk

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Written by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles

Survival story set during the battle of Dunkirk in WWII. The younger cast members acquit themselves admirably, including pop star Harry Styles; and, in its uncomfortable depiction of frightened men looking to save their own skin, this is far from straightforwardly patriotic fare. As he delivers non-stop visual audacity…

Enchanted April

Written by: Matthew BarberFeeling lost in the shadows of marriage and forgotten in the rush of 1920s post-war society, two London housewives pool their savings to rent a villa in Italy for a ladies-only holiday away, reluctantly recruiting a pair of difficult upper-class women to share the cost and the experience.

The General

  • U

When Union spies steal an engineer's beloved locomotive, he pursues it single-handedly and straight through enemy lines.

Sat 26 Jan 2019

£5–£6 / 0121 373 2761

Hacksaw Ridge

  • 3 stars
  • 2016
  • US
  • 2h 19min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mel Gibson
  • Cast: Andrew Garfield, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Vince Vaughn
  • UK release: 27 January 2016

Desmond Doss (Garfield) is a Seventh Day Adventist who enrols in the US Army in WWII and then refuses even to pick up a rifle, let alone shoot one. Doss’s real-life bravery and Garfield’s awkward-everyman persona make this rise above Gibson’s rather clichéd reverence, and the battle sequences are superbly realised.

Sun 5 May 2019

£5–£6 / 0121 373 2761

Journey's End

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • 1h 47min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Saul Dibb
  • Cast: Paul Bettany, Sam Claflin, Asa Butterfield

In a French dugout in 1918, Captain Stanhope (Claflin) is running on whisky and nerves, and approaching a breakdown. Dibb retains the claustrophobia of the original play and a uniformly excellent cast means that the emotional moments are fully earned.

Sat 17 Nov

£5–£6 / 0121 373 2761

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World

  • 2003
  • US
  • 2h 18min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Weir
  • Written by: Peter Weir, John Collee, adapted from novels by Patrick O'Brian
  • Cast: Russell Crowe, Paul Bettany, Billy Boyd, James D'Arcy, Edward Woodall
  • UK release: 28 November 2003

During the Napoleonic Wars, a ship's captain obsessively pursues a French war vessel around South America, pushing his ship and her crew to their limits.

Paddington 2

  • 5 stars
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Imelda Staunton
  • UK release: 10 November 2017

Paddington (Whishaw) falls foul of a dastardly scheme to steal the key to a hidden fortune. The sequel to the wildly successful first film is implausibly even better, with spiffing action pieces, seemingly throwaway gags paying rich dividends later, and splendid performances from all, with Grant brilliant as the has-been…

The Wind that Shakes the Barley

  • 4 stars

  • Germany/Italy/Spain/France/Ireland/UK
  • 2h 7min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ken Loach
  • Written by: Paul Laverty
  • Cast: Cillian Murphy, Padraic Delaney, Orla Fitzgerald, Liam Cunningham

Telling the story of the Irish War for Independence, from the Irish point of view, Loach and Scottish screenwriter Paul Laverty produce a solid, no-nonsense piece of drama, impressively acted by professionals and non-professionals alike. Focusing on the human costs of a grand injustice, it serves as a rallying cry for us…
