  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • U
  • Directed by: Brian Fee
  • Cast: Armie Hammer, Nathan Fillion, Owen Wilson, Kerry Washington
  • UK release: 14 July 2017

Lightning (Wilson) is challenged by new car on the block, Jackson Storm (Hammer). The least interesting Pixar franchise rumbles on in a rudimentary cash-grab which is basically a training montage in search of a story, and Randy Newman’s score can’t save it from being a dull lunge for the finish line.

  • U
  • Directed by: Pierre Coffin, Kyle Balda
  • Cast: Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Nev Scharrel, Steve Coogan, Julie Andrews, Jenny Slate, Pierre Coffin
  • UK release: 30 June 2017

Gru (Carell) and new wife and fellow agent Lucy (Wiig) are ensconced with their adorable adopted daughters when supervillain Balthazar Bratt (Parker) decides to take revenge on Hollywood for neglecting him. It’s all a bit familiar but it skilfully balances kid and adult appeal with its madcap approach and embarrassment of…

Dunkirk

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Written by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles

Survival story set during the battle of Dunkirk in WWII. The younger cast members acquit themselves admirably, including pop star Harry Styles; and, in its uncomfortable depiction of frightened men looking to save their own skin, this is far from straightforwardly patriotic fare. As he delivers non-stop visual audacity…

Hampstead

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 42min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joel Hopkins
  • Written by: Robert Festinger
  • Cast: Diane Keaton, James Norton, Brendan Gleeson

Emily (Keaton) is an American widow living in Hampstead who falls for the grumpy Donald (Gleeson), who lives in a shack on Hampstead Heath. Twee later-life rom-com with Ketaon in pure ditz mode; her and Gleeson’s chemistry is appealing, but there are no surprises.

Tue 8 Aug

  • 14:30 – 16:30

The Handmaiden

  • 2h 24min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Park Chan-Wook
  • Cast: Kim Tae-Ri, Kim Min-Hee, Ha Jung-Woo, Jo Jin-Woong
  • UK release: 17 February 2016

Thief Sook-Hee (Tae-ri) is hired to pose as a maid to wealthy heiress Hideko (Min-hee) as part of a con trick, but then maid and heiress discover mutual passion. This loose adaptation of Sarah Waters's Fingersmith is bravura filmmaking, but while the emotion between the two women is vibrant, an extended sex scene is…

Wed 16 Aug

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

Thu 17 Aug

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

The Hippopotamus

  • 2 stars
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 29min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John Jencks
  • Cast: Roger Allam, Matthew Modine, Russell Tovey, Emily Berrington
  • UK release: 28 May 2017

Ted Wallace (Allam) is a failed poet and bitter crtic who is asked by an old friend to investigate miracle cures on a country estate. A half-hearted mixture of Poirot-like sleuthing, Wodehouse-styloe hijinks and slapstick, only partially redeemed by Allam’s ebullient performance as the withering Ted.

Fri 21 Jul

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

Lady Macbeth

  • 4 stars
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 1h 29min
  • 15
  • Directed by: William Oldroyd
  • Cast: Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Naomi Ackie

Katherine (Pugh) is a young bride shackled to a middle-aged man; when left alone in the grand manor house she begins an affair with a stable-hand (Jarvis) and it all goes downhill. Restrained, compulsively watchable debut feature with a chilling, droll performance from Pugh as the wicked but compelling Katherine.

Mon 24 Jul

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

Wed 26 Jul

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

The Levelling

  • 4 stars
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 1h 23min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Hope Dickson Leach
  • Written by: Hope Dickson Leach
  • Cast: Ellie Kendrick, David Troughton, Jack Holden
  • UK release: 12 May 2017

Following the death of her brother, veterinary student Clover (Kendrick) returns to her flood-damaged family home and her father (Troughton) in denial, living in a caravan. Sombre, deeply moving Dardenne-ish drama set after the 2014 floods, with fine performances, especially from Kendrick.

Sun 30 Jul

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

Wed 2 Aug

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove)

  • 4 stars
  • 2015
  • Sweden
  • 1h 56min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Hannes Holm
  • Cast: Rolf Lassgård, Bahar Pars, Zozan Akgün, Tobias Almborg
  • UK release: 30 June 2017

Ove (Lassgård) is an ageing, widowed grump who’s the self-appointed prefect of a small community; his attempts at suicide are continually frustrated by his new neighbours, mouthy Iranian immigrant Parvaneh (Pars) and her family. Shamelessly feelgood, with a welcome streak of black comedy, it’s predictable but heartwarming.

Thu 27 Jul

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 9min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joachim Rønning, Espen Sandberg
  • Cast: Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom
  • UK release: 26 May 2017

Captain Jack (Depp) and friends are on a mission to obtain the trident of Poseidon before ghoulish Captain Salazar (Bardem) can get his hands on it. A partial return to form for the franchise, with Bardem vigorous as Jack’s nemesis and a winning performance from Scodelario as an astronomer. It’s all too crowded but it…

Fri 28 Jul

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

Sat 29 Jul

  • 2h 20min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Matt Reeves
  • Written by: Mark Bomback, Matt Reeves
  • Cast: Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn, Amiah Miller, Karin Konoval, Judy Greer, Terry Notary
  • UK release: 14 July 2017

After the apes suffer massive losses, ape leader Caesar begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. Though war is waged in exhilarating style, it is the strength of the emotions the characters go through that will leave you well and truly shaken.

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

  • 19:30 – 22:00

Sun 13 Aug

£5.50 (£4.50) / 0115 901 3640

Transformers: The Last Knight

  • 2 stars
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 28min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Michael Bay
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Laura Haddock, Anthony Hopkins
  • UK release: 23 June 2017

It turns out that the Transformers shape human history, as Oxford lecturer Viviane (Haddock), butch inventor Cade (Wahlberg) and an English Earl (Hopkins) charge about from action sequence to action sequence. Wahlberg and Haddock have zero chemistry and it’s a deadening pile-up of CGI carnage, grating quips and joyless…

  • UK release: 1 June 2017

Diana (Gadot) is a princess of the Amazons, who rescues WW1 pilot / secret agent interest Steve (Pine) and resolves to end the war. Stylish and exciting, with a top cast, touches of real humour and tragedy, and spiffing action sequences, anchored by a strong and highly likeable performance from Gadot.
