Adult Life Skills

  • 4 stars
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 96 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Rachel Tunnard
  • Cast: Jodie Whittaker, Lorraine Ashbourne, Brett Goldstein
  • UK release: 24 June 2016

Anna (Whittaker) is a filmmaker bereft after the death of her twin and creative partner Billy (Hogg), and who now lives in her mother's garden shed. It's a shrewd, sweary, polished rib-tickler as well as a credible, intimate study of grief, and although Goldstein is adorable as Anna's admirer, romance for once takes a…

Couple in a Hole

  • 4 stars
  • 2015
  • UK/Belgium/France
  • 105 min
  • Directed by: Tom Geens
  • Cast: Paul Higgins, Kate Dickie, Jérôme Kircher
  • UK release: 8 April 2016

Scottish couple John (Higgins) and Karen (Dickie) literally live in a hole in a French forest, after she has been driven near-mad by a tragic event. A wonderfully wonky look at marriage and trauma, with superb performances from Higgins and the ever-excellent Dickie; surprising, sincere and unforgettably peculiar.

Dirty Dancing

  • 3 stars
  • 1987
  • US
  • 100 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Emile Ardolino
  • Written by: Eleanor Bergstein
  • Cast: Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Jerry Orbach, Cynthia Rhodes

The plot – in the summer of 1963 bad boy Johnny (Swayze) meets good girl Baby (Grey) and teaches her hip grinding, eventually winning the respect of her parents. Sure it's full of stereotyping, bad dialogue and a pre-teen sugar coated prurience, but decades on Dirty Dancing still has the ability to send a generation of…

The Incident

  • 3 stars
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 94 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jane Linfoot
  • Cast: Ruta Gedmintas, Tom Hughes, Tasha Connor
  • UK release: 25 November 2016

Joe (Hughes), a successful young architect, has an unplanned kerbside encounter with prostitute Lily (Connor) and then returns to his wife Annabel (Gedmintas) riddled with guilt. Narratively slight but visually striking drama with no backstory or detail to bring any real context; as a result, motivations and behaviour…

The Levelling

  • 2016
  • UK
  • 83 min
  • Directed by: Hope Dickson Leach
  • Written by: Hope Dickson Leach
  • Cast: Ellie Kendrick, David Troughton, Jack Holden

When her brother takes his own life Clover Catto must return to her family's farm and see the father she hasn't spoken to in years.

Live By Night

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • 128 min
  • Directed by: Ben Affleck
  • Cast: Ben Affleck, Scott Eastwood, Zoe Saldana

Joe Coughlin (Affleck) is a mobster and WW1 veteran who aims to avenge the death of his lover. Lavish production values and fine performances aside, Affleck the actor doesn't quite get under his character's skin and this isn't up to the standard of his previous directorial work.

Prevenge

  • 4 stars
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 88 min
  • Directed by: Alice Lowe
  • Cast: Alice Lowe, Kayvan Novak, Gemma Whelan, Kate Dickie

Ruth (Lowe) is an expectant mother who starts to hear her unborn baby urging her to kill people. Lowe's blackly comic, squirmingly uncomfortable directorial debut is remarkably well-realised, with an impressive cast and her own eerily passive, brilliantly-timed performance at the core. Enjoyably provocative.

T2 Trainspotting

  • 2017
  • UK
  • Directed by: Danny Boyle
  • Cast: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kelly MacDonald, James Cosmo, Shirley Henderson, Irvine Welsh
  • UK release: 27 January 2017

The cast of Danny Boyle's 1996 hit Trainspotting are reunited for the imaginatively named Trainspotting 2. Renton, Sick Boy, Begbie and Spud are definitely older but are they any wiser? The film is loosely based on Irvine Welsh's 2002 novel, Porno and had the residents of Edinburgh agog as they filmed scenes around the…

When Harry Met Sally

  • 5 stars
  • 1989
  • US
  • 95 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Rob Reiner
  • Written by: Nora Ephron
  • Cast: Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan, Carrie Fisher, Bruno Kirby
  • UK release: 11 December 2015

Angsty wise guy Harry (Crystal) and neurotic kook Sally (Ryan) become friends, and their friendship lasts for years until one fateful New Year's Eve. A blueprint for the modern romantic comedy, thanks to Ephron's intelligent, savvy script, brilliant performance from the leads and Reiner's relaxed approach.
