The Aftermath

  • 2 stars
  • 2019
  • UK / US / Germany
  • 1h 48min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Kent
  • Cast: Alexander Skarsgård, Keira Knightley, Jason Clarke

In post-WWII Hamburg, Rachael (Knightley) and her officer husband Lewis (Clarke) are living in a house with the German owner Stefan (Skarsgård) confined to the attic, and soon Rachael is drawn to Stefan. Rhidian Brook’s original novel may work, but on screen, the stiff upper lips and war-is-hell clichés are ridiculously…

Ben is Back

  • 4 stars
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 43min
  • Directed by: Peter Hedges
  • Cast: Julia Roberts, Lucas Hedges, Courtney B. Vance
  • UK release: 15 March 2019

Ben (Hedges) comes back to his family for Christmas when he’s supposed to be at a facility for recovering heroin addicts, to the alarm of his mother Holly (Roberts). Roberts is great and Hedges is entirely convincing, in this emotive domestic drama. Sometimes sentimental, but with sad authenticity.

Bohemian Rhapsody

  • 2 stars
  • 2018
  • UK/USA
  • 1h 31min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, Mike Myers
  • UK release: 24 October 2018

The Freddie Mercury story. Malek as Mercury does a great job, with a passionate and impressive performance, but despite the recreation of momentous performances it’s a disappointingly tame affair, with a by-the-numbers screenplay and a bland lack of insight into Mercury’s heritage or sexuality.

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

  • 5 stars
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 46min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Marielle Heller
  • Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Richard E. Grant, Dolly Wells
  • UK release: 1 February 2019

Lee Israel (McCarthy) is a writer facing financial difficulties who starts forging letters from famous writers as a way to earn money. McCarthy gives one of her best performances as the stubborn Lee, and Grant is excellent as her buddy Jack. Deviously funny and deeply moving.

Captain Marvel

  • 4 stars
  • 2019
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck
  • Cast: Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Gemma Chan, Ben Mendelsohn, Robert Kazinsky
  • UK release: 8 March 2019

Danvers (Larson) is a fighter with the Kree Starforce who finds herself on Earth, and encountering Agent Nick Fury (Jackson). The storyline doesn’t give Larson a lot of time to establish a persona, but her charm, style and ass-kicking make her Marvel’s coolest customer and whatever it lacks in heart, it makes up for with…

Everybody Knows

  • 3 stars
  • 2018
  • Spain / France / Italy
  • Directed by: Asghar Farhadi
  • Cast: Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Carla Campra

Laura (Cruz) returns to her small town for a family wedding with her teenage daughter Irene (Campra) and young son. But then Irene is kidnapped. A stellar cast and careful craftsmanship make this portrait of family tensions perfectly watchable, but it’s a bit soapy and predictable and never as gripping as it might be.

The Favourite

  • 5 stars
  • 2018
  • Ireland / UK / US
  • 15
  • Directed by: Yorgos Lanthimos
  • Cast: Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone, Nicholas Hoult

In the court of Queen Anne (Colman), power is wielded by Lady Sarah Marlborough (Weisz), but then Sarah’s young cousin Abigail (Stone) arrives. Brash, bawdy and beguiling, and a deceptively acute commentary on the nature of power, with career-best work from Weisz and Stone and a commanding performance from Colman as the…

Five Feet Apart

  • 3 stars
  • 2019
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Justin Baldoni
  • Cast: Haley Lu Richardson, Cole Sprouse, Claire Forlani
  • UK release: 22 March 2019

Stella (Richardson) is a young woman with cystic fibrosis who falls for another CF patient, Will (Sprouse). A smart script and touching performances but with a fumbled, melodramatic ending; still, it’s a sensitive, heartfelt and often moving look at what it’s like to live with this life-threatening condition.

The Great Escape

  • 4 stars
  • 1963
  • US
  • 2h 53min
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Sturges
  • Cast: Steve McQueen, James Garner, Richard Attenborough, James Donald, Charles Bronson, Donald Pleasence, James Coburn

The classic WWII escape drama, featuring a fine ensemble cast trying to get out of the Nazi stalag. McQueen's 'Cooler King' became a screen icon, particularly in the scene where he attempts to jump over a field of barbed wire fences on a motorbike.

Sun 24 Mar

  • 18:00

Green Book

  • 3 stars
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • Directed by: Peter Farrelly
  • Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini

Don Shirley (Ali), virtuoso pianist, is chauffeured around the American South in 1962 by his Italian-American driver Tony (Mortensen), and much learning ensues. It’s beautifully made and very worthy, but far too gentle and broad to be effective; Tony, rather than Don, is the heart of the story and it lacks bite.

The Lego Movie

  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US/Australia
  • 1h 40min
  • U
  • Directed by: Phil Lord/Christopher Miller
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Cobie Smulders
  • UK release: 8 February 2014

Emmett (Pratt), a regular Lego construction worker, finds himself acclaimed as the 'Special', who will save the Lego universe from evil Lord Business. Fast, funny, blisteringly paced and hugely inventive, it's also so layered with ironic detachment that the attempt at a sincere final act falls flat; still, good fun for…

Maiden

  • 4 stars
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 33min
  • 12
  • Directed by: Alex Holmes

Documentary about the all-female yacht crew that entered the Whitbread Round the World Race in 1989, focusing on the life of skipper Tracy Edwards. The footage and interviews are skilfully put together, immersing the viewer in the high stakes of it all and showing what obstacles the crew was up against.

Oscar Wilde Season Live: An Ideal Husband

A new production of Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband. Ambitious government minister, Sir Robert Chiltern’s smooth ascent to the top seems assured until Mrs Cheveley appears in London with damning proof of his previous financial trickery.

A Private War

  • 4 stars
  • 2018
  • UK / US
  • 1h 50min
  • Directed by: Matthew Heineman
  • Cast: Rosamund Pike, Jamie Dornan, Tom Hollander, Stanley Tucci

The story of the last years of Marie Colvin (Pike), celebrated war correspondent. Pike’s intrinsic frostiness is perfect for Colvin’s determination, resourcefulness and arrogance, and while Dornan, Hollander and Tucci are all good as (respectively) photographer, editor and lover, it’s Pike’s show, and a mesmerising…
