  • 85 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Louis Clichy, Alexandre Astier
  • Cast: Jack Whitehall, Nick Frost, Greg Davies, Matt Berry, Catherine Tate, Harry Enfield, Dick & Dom, Jim Broadbent
  • UK release: 19 August 2016

Julius Caesar devises a plan to assimilate the indomitable Gauls by building a luxury housing development in the forest surrounding their village. Much the slickest animated Asterix adaptation, with a sharply-written script which combines satire on capitalism with people being hit in the face with fish; the British dub…

Bridget Jones's Baby

  • 2 stars
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 123 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sharon Maguire
  • Cast: Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey
  • UK release: 16 September 2016

Bridget (Zellweger) is back, and pregnant, either by handsome American Jack (Dempsey) or Mark (Firth), the ex she never got over. Cue babymaking shenanigans. Bridget's fretting about being a 'spinster' comes across as self-hatred, and the men don't deserve the poor treatment she gives them. Not cute, not charming; just…

Café Society

  • 3 stars
  • 2016
  • US
  • 96 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Woody Allen
  • Written by: Woody Allen
  • Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Steve Carell
  • UK release: 2 September 2016

The 1930s: Bobby (Eisenberg), a wide-eyed Jewish New Yorker, goes to Hollywood to work for uncle Phil (Carell), where he falls for Phil's spiky secretary Vonnie (Stewart). Storaro's beautiful cinematography and some fine work from Eisenberg can't conceal that this is just one more ho-hum late Woody movie.

Captain Fantastic

  • 3 stars
  • 2016
  • US
  • 118 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Matt Ross
  • Written by: Matt Ross
  • Cast: Viggo Mortensen, George MacKay, Samantha Isler

Ben (Mortensen) has raised a family of six off the grid in the Pacific Northwest, teaching them survival skills and science but leaving them unprepared for the rest of the world. The film doesn't face how Ben seems more like a cult leader than a great dad and it's contrived and contradictory, but Mortensen is a delight.

The Childhood of a Leader

  • 3 stars
  • 2016
  • UK / France / Hungary

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Brady Corbet
  • Cast: Berenice Bejo, Liam Cunningham, Tom Sweet, Robert Pattinson, Stacy Martin
  • UK release: 19 August 2016

An American diplomat (Cunningham) and his European wife (Bejo), living in France in 1919 for the Versailles negotiations, have a pretty son (Sweet) who develops into a horribly spoiled brat. Ambitious and well-crafted but pretentious and narratively unconvincing fable from actor-turned-director Corbet.

Teenager Jake (Butterfield), traumatised by the death of his grandfather (Stamp), goes to visit the titular home, where his grandfather grew up, run by eccentric Miss Peregrine (Green).
