New York City, 1981: Abel (Isaac) is a businessman who's married into dirty money, but who's determined to remain legit even as his rivals are circling.

  • 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.

Testament of Youth

  • 3 stars
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 129 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Kent
  • Cast: Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Taron Egerton
  • UK release: 16 January 2015

Vera (Vikander) is a wilful and intelligent English girl; when her friend Victor (Morgan), fiancé Roland (Harington) and brother Edward (Egerton) go off to fight in WW I, she follows them to be a nurse. Sparing and respectful adaptation of Brittain's 1933 memoir; tasteful rather than innovative, it still packs a punch.

Trash

  • 2014
  • UK/Brazil
  • 114 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Stephen Daldry
  • 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.

  • UK release: 16 January 2014

After the death of her free-spirited mother (Dern), a young woman (Witherspoon) decides to hike 1,100 miles along part of the Pacific Crest Trail, despite being almost comically unprepared.
