Dior and I

Dior and I
  • 2014
  • France
  • 90 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Frédéric Tcheng

Documentary examining the arrival at fashion house Christian Dior of new creative director Raf Simons. A low-key and subtle film which suffers from the sense that it could have gone further (the dismissal of Simons' predecessor John Galliano is not mentioned), but with some slyly observed moments and engaging personalities.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains
  • 1982
  • US
  • 15
  • Directed by: Lou Adler
  • Written by: Rob Morton (Pseudonym of Nancy Dowd)
  • Cast: Diane Lane, Laura Dern, Marin Kanter, Ray Winstone, Steve Jones, Paul Cook, Paul Simonon, Fee Waybill, Barry Ford, Black Randy, Elizabeth Daily, Brent Spiner

Mommy

Mommy
  • 2014
  • Canada
  • 139 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Xavier Dolan
  • Cast: Anne Dorval, Antoine-Olivier Pilon, Suzanne Clément

Die (Dorval) is a gutsy single mother struggling to cope with her ADHD-diagnosed son Steve (Pilon); then they befriend tongue-tied neighbour Kyla (Clément). Die and Steve's relationship is tempestuous and howlingly inappropriate, but frequently hilarious; the cast excels, with Dorval astonishing and Pilon charismatic and exuberant. Aged just 25, writer/director Dolan steps into the big league.

Monty Python's Life of Brian

Monty Python's Life of Brian
  • 1979
  • UK
  • 93 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Terry Jones
  • Written by: Monty Python
  • Cast: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin

The Gospel According to Monty Python offended a whole host of religious dominations upon its initial release, which rather obscured the fact that behind the controversy lay their most sustained humour to date. A host of very funny setpieces and smart cameos from all the team climaxes in a rather fetching musical crucifixion.

The Sound of Music

The Sound Of Music
  • 1965
  • US
  • 173 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Robert Wise
  • Written by: Howard Lindsay, Russel Crouse, Maria von Trapp, Ernest Lehman
  • Cast: Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, Eleanor Parker, Richard Haydn, Peggy Wood, Charmian Carr

In the late 1930s, vivacious nun Maria (Andrews) introduces the Von Trapp children to the joys of music, and their widowed father (Plummer) to the joys of love as Nazism begins to sweep Austria. One of the great screen musicals, completely uncynical, and boasting a host of memorable songs and charm-sodden moments. And it's all based on a true story.

Suite française

Suite française
  • 2014
  • UK/France/Belgium
  • 107 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Saul Dibb
  • Cast: Michelle Williams, Kristin Scott Thomas, Matthias Schoenaerts

Lucile Angellier (Williams) is married and lives in a village in occupied France in the 1940s; when handsome young German officer Bruno von Falk (Schoenaerts) arrives, romance blossoms. Adapted from Irène Némirovsky's novellas, it suffers from wayward pacing but Williams is as honest and affecting as ever. Pack a hanky.

Wild Tales (Relatos salvajes)

Wild Tales (Relatos salvajes)
  • 2014
  • Argentina
  • 122 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Damián Szifrón
  • Cast: Ricardo Darín, Darío Grandinetti, Érica Rivas

Anthology film consisting of six short stories about diverse characters reaching their tipping points: an explosives expert faced with a parking fine, a road rage incident, and a wedding from hell. Szifrón's jubilantly batty third feature is an exemplary example of how to combine multiple stories in a coherent and often exhilarating way.
