  • US
  • PG
  • Directed by: James Bobin

  • UK release: 27 May 2016

Alice (Wasikowska) has to travel back in time to help the Mad Hatter (Depp), to the annoyance of Time (Baron Cohen). Nimble blockbuster with a good blend of mirth and melancholy, and director Bobin never lets the CGI swamp the story in the way Burton did in the first film.

Dheepan (Jesuthasan) is a former Tamil Tiger who starts a new life in a Parisian housing project with two strangers posing as his wife (Srinivasan) and daughter (Vinasithamby). Then his past starts to catch up. Touching, intense, beautifully crafted drama which loses some focus and conviction as it becomes more violent.

  • 4 stars
  • 2016
  • UK/US/Germany
  • 106 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Dexter Fletcher
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman, Christopher Walken
  • UK release: 1 April 2016

Eddie Edwards (Egerton) is determined to be a ski jumper, but his only hope lies through boozy, washed-up former star Bronson (Jackman). Feelgood dramedy more 'inspired by' than 'based on' the real-life story of a plucky loser, with Egerton delightfully innocent as the hapless Eddie, and some thrilling ski jumping scenes.

  • UK
  • 110 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stephen Frears
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg
  • UK release: 6 May 2016

Florence Foster Jenkins (Streep) is a wealthy, cultured New York socialite, who insists on performing as a soprano in spite of a total inability to sing. Streep throws herself endearingly into the role, Grant is wonderful as her debonair husband and Frears keeps a confident balance of uproarious laughs and genuine pathos.

High-Rise

  • 4 stars
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 119 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ben Wheatley
  • Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss

Adaptation of JG Ballard's dystopian novel about a high-rise apartment block which descends into chaos, with Hiddleston as bereaved doctor Robert Laing and Miller as his neighbour. Witty, scathing and uniquely cinematic, flecked with blood, guts and filmmaking genius.

Angry brilliance, with magic and stand-up, from the hurricane of Sadowitz. Adults only, and hard-to-offend ones at that.

  • 2016
  • US
  • 106 min

  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Written by: Justin Marks (screenplay), Rudyard Kipling
  • Cast: Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken
  • UK release: 15 April 2016

You know the story: boy (Sethi) left in woods, adopted by wolves (Nyong'o and Esposito), mentored by panther (Kingsley), befriended by bear (Murray), hunted by tiger (Elba, terrifying). Favreau and his team successfully retool the story with stunning CGI, and a script with heart, soul and spirit. A feelgood delight.

Lady Susan Vernon (Beckinsale) is penniless, selfish and keen to marry off her nelfected daughter to the nearest wealthy dolt, but she's also smart, witty and beautiful. Stillman gives a wickedly droll adaptation of Jane Austen's short novel, choicely acted by the whole ensemble.

Lee Gates (Clooney) is a motormouth host of a financial advice show, directed by Patty (Roberts); then desperate Kyle (O'Connell) hijacks the show and forces Lee to wear a bomb vest.

Middle-class couple Perry (McGregor) and Gail (Harris) are dining in a Marrakech restaurant when a wealthy Russian criminal (Skarsgård) invites himself into their lives. despite all the cover-ups and conspiracies, it works best as a study of Perry and Gail's frayed relationship. Solid rather than spectacular.

When news producer Kim (Fey) is given the chance to appear on screen by covering the War in Afghanistan, she grabs her big break. It takes a while to find its feet, but a well-cast Fey helps to make Kim's journey quite engaging, even though you may wish the film were a bit meatier politically.
