  • 4 stars
  • 2009
  • US
  • 100 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Henry Selick
  • Cast: Dakota Fanning, Teri Hatcher, Jennifer Saunders, Dawn French, John Hodgman, Ian McShane

After her family moves to Pink Mansions, Coraline (voiced by Fanning) quickly becomes bored with the large dusty house, and in particular with her hardworking parents (Hatcher and Hodgman). The fantasy kicks into top gear when she discovers a secret door that leads her into an alternate version of her home. A lush, visually imaginative and freshly entertaining stop-motion adaptation of Neil Gaiman's children's novel.

Effie Gray

Effie Gray
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 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.

Mr Turner

Mr Turner
  • 5 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 150 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Mike Leigh
  • Cast: Timothy Spall, Paul Jesson, Dorothy Atkinson

Portrait of the last 25 years of the life of painter Joseph Mallord William Turner (Spall). A work of great beauty, wit and poignancy, presenting the artist as unapologetically gruff but sympathetic and spectacularly eccentric. Leigh's latest demonstrates a command of his craft to rival that of his subject.

Northern Soul

Northern Soul
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 99 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Elaine Constantine
  • Written by: Elaine Constantine
  • Cast: Eliot James Langridge, Josh Whitehouse, Antonia Thomas, Steve Coogan

In 1974 Lancashire, John (Langridge) meets Matt (Whitehouse) and becomes hooked on Northern Soul, the high-energy soul and funk that northern English clubbers loved to dance to. Constantine's debut feature is simplistic and the story is underdeveloped, but she knows the scene and the all-important dancefloor scenes hum with energy.

The Overnighters

The Overnighters
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jesse Moss

Documentary about the small town of Williston, North Dakota, and how local pastor Jay Reinke opened up his church to the wave of workers who were attracted to the area by the oil fracking boom. A raw, honest and brutally relevant picture of environmental change, the decline of community and the fallacy of the American dream.

Zabriskie Point

Zabriskie Point
  • 4 stars
  • 1969
  • US
  • 110 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Michelangelo Antonioni
  • Cast: Mark Frechette, Daria Halprin

Rambling, would-be epic of anti-establishment America, with mellow visuals loosely draped on a plot in which Frechette flees accusations of police murder, steals a plane, takes in the sights of the Nevada desert, picks up Halprin, makes whoopee with her in Death Valley, then returns home to face the music. Beautiful and intense (Sam Shepard was one of several writers), if quite immersed in late-60s trippiness.
