  • Directed by: Roberts Gannaway
  • Cast: Dane Cook, Ed Harris, Julie Bowen

When perky aeroplane Dusty (Cook) is forced to give up racing, he decides to retrain as a firefighter under crusty-but-fair Blade Ranger (Harris). Gannaway's sequel is better than the dismal original, but even as simple-minded entertainment it's a pity about the sexual and racial stereotyping and broad, male-orientated humour.

The Riot Club

  • Directed by: Lone Scherfig
  • Cast: Max Irons, Sam Claflin, Holliday Grainger

Affable Oxford undergraduate Miles (Irons) is courted by the Riot Club, an exclusive university society devoted to hedonism, but then a Club dinner in the back room of a pub becomes increasingly vile. Claflin is outstanding as the villainous Alistair, and Scherfig's film, in its portrayal of dangerously antisocial upper class twits, is appropriately discomforting and immersive.

  • Directed by: Martin Provost
  • Cast: Emmanuelle Devos, Sandrine Kiberlain, Olivier Gourmet

Biopic of French author Violette Leduc (Devos), focusing on her relationship with Simone de Beauvoir (Kiberlain), who got Leduc's first novel published, connected her with French literary life and won her unrequited love. Clever and complex study of female friendship, with expert performances from Devos as the borderline hysterical Violette and Kiberlain as the steely and charismatic de Beauvoir.
