Blue Story

  • 4 stars
  • 2019
  • 1h 31min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Andrew Onwubolu
  • Written by: Andrew Onwubolu
  • Cast: Stephen Odubola, Micheal Ward, Khali Best

Timmy (Odubola) befriends Marco (Ward), but they find themselves on separate sides of an increasingly ugly gang rivalry. Rapper-turned-writer/director Onwubolu, telling a story drawn from his own upbringing, draws compelling turns from Ward and Odubola and it packs a huge punch.

  • 4 stars
  • 2019

  • 2h 8min
  • Directed by: Alex Gibney

Documentary about oligarch-turned-agitator Mikhail Khodorkovsky, tracing his journey from one of the richest men in Russia to spending nearly ten years in a Siberian prison for fraud. A dizzying, roller-coaster ride of a film that grips like a political thriller and leaves the audience to make up its own mind.

Harriet

  • 3 stars
  • 2019
  • US
  • Directed by: Kasi Lemmons
  • Cast: Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr, Janelle Monae
  • UK release: 22 November 2019

The true story of abolitionist and activist Harriet Tubman (Erivo), who escaped from slavery and carried out numerous rescue missions to help family, friends and others. Erivo brings gravity and steeliness to a rather formulaic and superficial script, but at least it’ll get Tubman’s heroism more widely known.

Honey Boy

  • 3 stars
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Alma Har'el
  • Written by: Shia LaBeouf
  • Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Lucas Hedges, Noah Jupe

Otis (Jupe, later Hedges) is the son of a difficult father, James (LaBeouf, playing a character based on his own father), in a story that goes back and forth between the 90s and 00s. Obviously a cathartic tale for actor turned screenwriter LaBeouf, it’s indulgent, irritating and emotional but has impressive performances…

  • Directed by: Frank Capra
  • Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers

Small-town boy Stewart runs into financial difficulties and is on the brink of suicide when an elderly angel descends to earth to show him all the good his life has done for those around him. Archetypal Capra sentimentality with a superbly detailed fantasy framework and one of Stewart's most lovable performances. One to…

The Kingmaker

  • 4 stars
  • 2019
  • US / Denmark
  • 1h 41min
  • Directed by: Lauren Greenfield

Documentary about Imelda Marcos, which initially appears to treat her with kid gloves until survivors of the Marcos dictatorship talk about the level of torture, corruption and violence. Marcos herself is a pioneer of fake news and grand delusions; the continuing support for her in the Philippines is unfathomable.

  • Cast: Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, Christopher Plummer
  • UK release: 27 November 2019

When mystery writer Harlan Thrombey (Plummer) is found with his throat slit, puffed-up private detective Benoit Blanc (Craig) gets on the case. A wickedly knowing, flamboyantly bitchy take on the whodunnit, with a great cast, bags of style and a splendidly outrageous comic turn from Craig. Bloody good fun.

  • Cast: Liya Ai, Jiang Du, Zhao-Yan Guo-Zhang
  • UK release: 6 December 2019

Yaojun (Wang Jingchun) and Liyun (Yong Mei) are a married couple whose son drowns while playing with friends. Epic drama of 40 years of Chinese life, with a candid, observational eye; tumultuous and wrenching but ultimately an uplifting tale of the resilience of the humans spirit.

  • Cast: Zaki Youssef, Mohammed Ismail Mohammed, Imad Abul-Foul

Zakaria (Mohammed) is a 19-year-old Iraqi immigrant living in Denmark in 2025 and facing the rise of the anti-immigrant National Movement party. Depressingly plausible thriller which sometimes lacks a firm grasp on the bigger picture, but is gripping and compassionate.
