  • Cast: Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth, Mark Strong

Christine (Kidman) is an amnesiac, unable to recall her marriage to husband Ben (Firth) and the incident which caused her amnesia in the first place; can neuropsychologist Dr Nash (Strong) help? Stylish but superficial thriller which makes for an entertaining evening's viewing, but – like Christine – you may not remember much the next day.

  • 2014
  • UK
  • 102 min
  • Directed by: George Hencken
  • Cast: Tony Hadley, John Keeble, Gary Kemp

Documentary about Islington's own Spandau Ballet, charting their rise to Eighties superstardom, subsequent acrimonious split, royalties lawsuit and eventual reunion. Hencken has the band narrate their own story in voiceover, glossing over the more contentious issues; pity, as you sense that's where he would have found the real gold.

Still the Enemy Within

Still the Enemy Within

  • 112 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Owen Gower

Documentary on the 1984–85 UK miners' strike, in which Thatcher's government went to destroy the power of the trade unions. Gower's film focuses on ex-miners, their wives and supporters and there's little sense that things might have happened differently, but the lingering anger is shockingly clear, as is the nostalgia for the solidarity that grew in communities under attack from their own government.
