It's 1970, and mutton-chopped, perma-stoned private detective Doc Sportello (Phoenix) reluctantly teams up with his po-faced LAPD nemesis Bigfoot (Brolin) on the case of a disappeared property developer.

  • Cast: Justin Fletcher, John Sparkes
  • UK release: 6 February 2015

When the Farmer gets lost in the Big City, Shaun (Fletcher) and his friends leave Mossy Bottom Farm to rescue him. With a steady stream of hilarious, well-timed sight gags, it's a beautifully made comedy for the whole family, packed with the kind of detail that rewards future viewings.

  • Australia
  • 108 min
  • 15

  • UK release: 30 January 2015

When JR (Thwaites) is locked up for a misdemeanour, he gets protected by notorious criminal Brendan (McGregor) but finds out that Brendan's protection has a price. Clichéd Aussie crime story, in which an actress as good as Vikander is reduced to mere eye-candy; a dull and derivative misfire.

  • Cast: Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen, Wagner Moura
  • UK release: 30 January 2015

In the Brazilian favelas, a trio of teenagers (Tevez, Weinstein and Luis) try to solve a mystery. Curtis' script and Daldry's simplistic and saccharine approach make the film hopeful, which is fine, but also less moving and honest than it could be; it's also excessively long.
