  • Directed by: Yann Demange
  • Cast: Jack O'Connell, Sam Reid, Sean Harris

Belfast, 1971: Gary (O'Connell) is a young British soldier who, on his first night patrol, gets separated from his unit and finds himself wandering the backstreets. O'Connell is marvellous as the luckless soldier but the complex power-play between the IRA, loyalist paramilitaries and the British Army make for more than just a thriller.

The Boxtrolls

  • 97 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Graham Annable, Anthony Stacchi
  • Cast: Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Ben Kingsley, Elle Fanning, Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, Tracy Morgan

Eggs (Hempstead-Wright) lives underground with a family of Boxtrolls, marginalised creatures who make their home from rubbish. But then the trolls are hunted by a group of exterminators, led by the grotesque Snatcher (Kingsley). Adventurous, intense and sometimes disturbing animated movie, with plenty to keep adults occupied; whether kids will respond is another question.

  • 2014

  • 108 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Richard Laxton
  • Written by: Emma Thompson
  • Cast: Dakota Fanning, Emma Thompson, Julie Walters

Period piece looking at the early life of Euphemia 'Effie' Gray (Fanning), who at 19 made a disastrous marriage to the Victorian art critic John Ruskin (Wise). Enjoyable if slightly sluggish biopic which overcomes its flaws thanks to Thompson's way with dialogue, even if it's not as affecting as it ought to be.
