  • Belgium/Canada/France
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Olivier Nakache, Éric Toledano
  • Cast: Jean-Pierre Bacri, Jean-Paul Rouve, Gilles Lellouche

Max (Bacri) is the head of a catering company whose powers are tested by the impending nuptials of Pierre (Lavernhe) and Héléna (Chemla). Charming and finely tuned ensemble comedy with a highly effective script, and the cast is a riot, with Bacri a master of the withering put-down.

Estonia Now: The Man Who Looks Like Me + Ice

Estonia Now: The Man Who Looks Like Me + Ice

Hugo, a music critic suffering from post-divorce depression, is just beginning to rebuild his life when his jazz musician father Raivo arrives unexpectedly. The old man announces that he is near death and expects his only son to take care of him. When an attractive psychotherapist enters the men’s lives, the father and son begin to compete for her attention. Andres Maimik and Katrin Maimik’s tragicomedy is an exploration of family and loneliness, the pursuit of happiness and a road to forgiving. 

Preceded by the short film 'Ice'.

Introduced by Eero Talvistu, producer of Ice.

Ice Harri is a lieutenant colonel in the Estonian army. Divorced, he only sees his 10-year old son during school holidays. Harri decides to make up for lost time by going to an adventurous father-son winter trip to an island. Missing the last ferry, Harri decides to take a local ice road over the frozen sea. On the vast snowy desert past memories collide with the present.

Meet Me In St Louis

Meet Me In St Louis
  • 1944
  • US
  • 1h 53min
  • U
  • Directed by: Vincente Minnelli
  • Cast: Judy Garland, Margaret O'Brien, Mary Astor, Lucille Bremer, Tom Drake, Marjorie Main

Released during wartime, this 1903-set musical was an optimistic attempt to emphasise family values, but Minnelli never wallows in nostalgia. Instead he combats it with sparky and sarky family dynamics. The put-upon father wants to move his family from St Louis to New York but faces resistance from his gaggle of girls who have romances to get on with, and the fast-approaching World Fair to enjoy. Perfect casting and performances, along with songs like 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas' add to the warm glow.

Outlaw King

Outlaw King
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: David Mackenzie
  • Cast: Chris Pine, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Florence Pugh, Billy Howle, Tony Curran, Stephen Dillane

Robert the Bruce (Pine) reluctantly accepts Edward I (Dillane) as King of Scotland and agrees to an arranged marriage with Elizabeth (Pugh). This big-budget epic is a little abrupt and choppy to begin with, but becomes an enthralling, blood-drenched history lesson. Pugh is terrific as the shrewd and independent-minded queen.

  • Cast: Simon Pegg, Kate Ashfield, Lucy Davis, Nick Frost, Dylan Moran, Bill Nighy, Penelope Wilton, Peter Serafinowicz, Jessica Stevenson

The team behind the cult TV series 'Spaced' venture into film with a likeable zom-rom-com that pits a bunch of London slackers against the undead. Pleasingly puerile.

Sunset Boulevard

Sunset Boulevard

  • PG
  • Directed by: Billy Wilder

Suspiria

Suspiria
  • 2018

  • Directed by: Luca Guadagnino
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, Angela Winkler, Ingrid Caven, Elena Fokina, Sylvie Testud, Renée Soutendijk, Christine LeBoutte, Fabrizia Sacchi, Małgosia Bela, Jessica Harper, Chloë Grace Moretz

Susie (Johnson), a hugely ambitious young dancer, joins the Tanz Dance Academy in 1977—but is it a coven of witches? Guadagnino’s remake of Argento’s original references historical violence and guilt and it’s a richly provocative piece of modern art, with sighs, screams and occasional explosions of bone-crunching intensity.

Veronica (Davis) is the wife of career criminal Harry (Neeson), who talks the wives of her husband’s associates into pulling off a heist after their husbands are unable to (see the movie title.) Densely populated and richly realised crime drama, with three fine leads in Davis, Debicki and Rodriguez, and McQueen’s contemplative style is balanced with genre thrills and feminist fury.
