  • 4 stars
  • 2015
  • Australia/UK/US
  • 118 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Garth Davis
  • Written by: Saroo Brierley, Luke Davies
  • Cast: Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, David Wenham, Nicole Kidman

  • U
  • Directed by: Luc Jacquet
  • Written by: Luc Jacquet, Michel Fessler

Delightful if fairly routine (in a Discovery Channel kind of way) documentary which follows the Emperor Penguins' annual attempt to bring new life into the freezing climbs of Antarctica. Morgan Freeman's rich, cheesy voice-over makes the film.

  • UK release: 2 December 2016

Moana (Carvalho) is a plucky Polynesian girl who revives the voyaging tradition of her island tribe, with the help of buffoonish demigod Maui (Johnson, exuberantly sending himself up.) The unabashed positivity is pure Disney but Bush's zingy screenplay satirises the studio's princess obsession and there's a refreshing…
