  • US
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Desiree Akhavan
  • Cast: Desiree Akhavan, Rebecca Henderson, Scott Adsit
  • UK release: 6 March 2015

Shirin (writer-director Akhavan) is a twentysomething Iranian-American bisexual woman, attempting to get a grip on the aftermath of her breakup with longterm girlfriend Maxine (Henderson).

Avengers: Age of Ultron

  • 4 stars

  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joss Whedon
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, James Spader, Samuel L. Jackson
  • UK release: 23 April 2015

Ultron, an artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark (Downey Jr) to keep the peace, goes rogue and decides to kill off the Avengers. Barely logical but impressively entertaining superhero fun; Johansson and Olsen are central to the action and Whedon's script is strong, snappy and irreverent, but it doesn't have much…

  • 2014
  • UK
  • 107 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Daniel Wolfe
  • Written by: Daniel Wolfe, Matthew Wolfe
  • Cast: Sabeena Jameen Ahmed, Conor McCarron, Gary Lewis

Teenage Laila (Ahmed) and her boyfriend Aaron (McCarron) take sanctuary on the Yorkshire Moors from her disapproving family. Atmospheric and grimly impressive debut feature from music video director Wolfe and his co-writer brother; it has its flaws (including some one-dimensional characters) but otherwise, full of promise.

Chris Ramsey : All Growed Up

Support Act - 8pm, Interval- 8.30pm, Main Act - 8.50pm.

  • UK release: 27 March 2015

Cinderella (James) loses her parents and is left with stepmother Lady Tremaine (Blanchett) and cruel stepsisters (McShera and Grainger); but soon enough, she's off to the ball. Weitz's crafty script has enough surreal touches to keep you interested and the result, while hardly a new take on the story, is still a pleasant…

  • Directed by: Kim Longinotto
  • UK release: 6 March 2015

Documentary about Brenda Myers-Powell, whose Dreamcatcher Foundation is a Chicago-based charity that helps women get out of prostitution.

The Face of an Angel

  • 100 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Michael Winterbottom
  • Cast: Kate Beckinsale, Daniel Brühl, Cara Delevingne
  • UK release: 27 March 2015

Thomas (Brühl), a slightly washed-up filmmaker, arrives in Italy to cover a lurid murder story (loosely based by Winterbottom on the case of Meredith Kercher) but gets distracted. It’s very good on the rapacious media coverage, less so when Thomas becomes obsessed with Dante and starts hallucinating; ultimately, a mixed…

Lydia (Williams) and Abbie (Pugh) are close friends at a late 60s British girls' school.

  • Cast: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Juno Temple, Michael Sheen
  • UK release: 1 May 2015

Bathsheba Everdene (Mulligan) is a headstrong rural girl who inherits a farm and attracts the attention of three suitors; lowly Gabriel (Schoenaerts), well-to-do Boldwood (Sheen) and unscrupulous Troy (Sturridge). A straight-up take on Hardy's classic; Mulligan is a convincing Bathsheba and Vinterberg captures the brewing…

  • Directed by: Ruben Östlund
  • Cast: Johannes Kuhnke, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Clara Wettergren, Vincent Wettergren, Kristofer Hivju, Fanni Metelius
  • UK release: 10 April 2015

In this penetrating study of human weakness, Tomas (Kuhnke) is the patriarch of a Swedish family holidaying in the French Alps; confronted with what he wrongly thinks is a lethal avalanche, he abandons his family and boots it, pausing only for his gloves and iPhone. Östlund draws out the painfully comic consequences of…

  • Cast: Rihanna, Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez, Steve Martin

Oh (Parsons) is part of an alien race who've colonised Earth by decanting humans to amusement parks in Australia, but he's forced to team up with lost little girl Tip (Rihanna). A grating experience, thanks to a confusing and uninteresting story, wall-to-wall Rihanna songs, twee dialogue and Parsons' annoyingly whiny voice.

Sabine (Winslet), a widowed landscape gardener in 1682 Paris, is commissioned to work on the gardens of Versailles, but her friendship with the head gardener (Schoenaerts) provokes the fury of his scheming wife (McCrory). Crowd-pleasing period drama; what it lacks in historical accuracy it makes up for with fine…

Die (Dorval) is a gutsy single mother struggling to cope with her ADHD-diagnosed son Steve (Pilon); then they befriend tongue-tied neighbour Kyla (Clément).

America, 1871: when Danish ex-pat Jon (Mikkelsen) kills the murderers of his wife (Fabricius) and son (Bjarke), he incurs the wrath of land baron Delarue (Morgan).

Lucile Angellier (Williams) is married and lives in a village in occupied France in the 1940s; when handsome young German officer Bruno von Falk (Schoenaerts) arrives, romance blossoms. Adapted from Irène Némirovsky's novellas, it suffers from wayward pacing but Williams is as honest and affecting as ever. Pack a hanky.

Anthology film consisting of six short stories about diverse characters reaching their tipping points: an explosives expert faced with a parking fine, a road rage incident, and a wedding from hell.
