The Anarchists

The Anarchists
  • 2015
  • France
  • 101 min
  • Directed by: Elie Wajeman
  • Cast: Tahar Rahim, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Swann Arlaud

Paris, 1899: policeman Jean (Rahim) goes undercover to investigate a group of anarchists, convincing their leader Elisée (Arlaud) of his good intentions, but also falling for Elisée's girlfriend Judith. Atmospheric, well-crafted and rather disappointing period piece, with some interesting musical choices but ultimately predictable.

Bridget Jones's Baby

Bridget Jones's Baby
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 123 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sharon Maguire
  • Cast: Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey

Bridget (Zellweger) is back, and pregnant, either by handsome American Jack (Dempsey) or Mark (Firth), the ex she never got over. Cue babymaking shenanigans. Bridget's fretting about being a 'spinster' comes across as self-hatred, and the men don't deserve the poor treatment she gives them. Not cute, not charming; just awful.

Free State of Jones

Free State of Jones
  • 2016
  • US
  • 139 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Gary Ross
  • Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mahershala Ali

Newt Knight is a Mississippi farmer and Confederate soldier who rebels against the authorities and organises a group of escaped slaves into a militia. Based on a true story which feels considerably more interesting than the movie; Knight is too good to believe and the film's good intentions rarely spark.

Hell or High Water

Hell or High Water
  • 2016
  • US
  • 102 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: David Mackenzie
  • Cast: Jeff Bridges, Ben Foster, Chris Pine, Gil Birmingham

Career criminal Tanner (Foster) and his taciturn brother Toby (Pine) rob banks across Texas, pursued by gruff Texas Ranger Marcus (Bridges) and his partner Alberto (Birmingham). A winning combination of Heat-style action, social commentary and character comedy, with a sensational cast and an aching heart.

When his hoofed companion is captured by a trader who intends to present him as a gift to the French monarch, Maki stubbornly follows along on the adventure to protect his new friend from harm.
