Bombshell

Bombshell
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jay Roach
  • Cast: Charlize Theron, Margot Robbie, Nicole Kidman, John Lithgow

The story of the Roger Ailes sexual harassment scandal at Fox News. It favours snappiness rather than a serious examination of the crimes, but Theron is excellent as Megyn Kelly and Kidman and Robbie are also compelling. Slick, glossy and entertaining, but it could have used more sensitivity and anger.

Céline And Julie Go Boating

Céline And Julie Go Boating
  • 1974
  • France
  • 3h 13min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jacques Rivette
  • Cast: Dominique Labourier, Juliet Berto, Marie-France Pisier

Eminent critic David Thomson describes it as 'the most innovative film since Citizen Kane.' With Alice in Wonderland style strangeness of its plotting, shifting between casual naturalism and stylised melodrama, this whimsical tribute to the pleasures of imagination, spontaneity and playfulness places the protagonists in a position, in Freud's phrase, 'to recapture the lost laughter of childhood.'

Muppets From Space

  • 1999
  • US
  • 1h 27min
  • U
  • Directed by: Tim Hill
  • Written by: Jerry Juhl, Joey Mazzarino, Ken Kaufman

For their sixth big screen adventure, the focus of our Muppet attentions is Gonzo, that blue, hooked nosed … thing.

Muppets From Space captures the spirit of the first movie and the original TV series that the subsequent films never did.

The Personal History of David Copperfield

The Personal History of David Copperfield
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 59min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Armando Iannucci
  • Cast: Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Aneurin Barnard, Ben Whishaw, Morfydd Clark, Peter Capaldi, Gwendoline Christie, Benedict Wong, Paul Whitehouse, Daisy May Cooper

David (Patel) is an ever-optimistic orphan who’s given shelter by poor but worthy Mr Micawber (Capaldi). Iannucci brings out the lighter side of Dickens, and the result is a sprightly, breezy and colourful crack at a classic, with a fabulous supporting cast and a perfect turn by Patel as the likeable hero.

Weathering with You

Weathering with You
  • 2019
  • Japan
  • 1h 51min
  • Directed by: Makoto Shinkai
  • Cast: Kotaro Daigo, Nana Mori, Chieko Baishô

Hodaka (Daigo), a 16-year-old runaway, arrives in Tokyo and meets orphaned Hina (Mori), who seems to have special powers. An animated tale of adolescent romance set in a beautifully rendered Tokyo, it’s visually resplendent, even if it’s not quite up to director Shinkai’s sublime 2016 Your Name.
