It's the boy-wizard's second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where evil forces have released a vicious serpent into the corridors. In line with JK Rowling's book, the second film is darker than the first. It's perhaps somewhat over-long, but the combination of old-fashioned kids' storytelling and blockbuster budget special effects make for something more pleasing than standard Hollywood eye candy.

  • Cast: Odessa Young, Josh O'Connor, Olivia Colman, Colin Firth, Sope Dirisu, Glenda Jackson

"Screenwriter Alice Birch (Normal People, Lady Macbeth) and director Eva Husson (Bang Gang, Girls of the Sun) prove the perfect creative duo bringing rich sensuality to this film starting Olivia Colman, Josh O’Connor and Colin Firth.

Henley, in the mid-1920s, young maid Jane (Young) works for the Nivens, one of several local ‘grand’ families who have been devastated by the loss of sons in the First World War. Jane is having a secret, passionate affair with Paul (Josh O’Connor), the sole surviving son of the Nivens’ neighbours, and on Mothering Sunday, Jane has plans to bicycle over to Paul’s house while his parents and servants are away, for a secret rendezvous. But Paul is engaged to be married to someone else and Jane has ambitions to be a writer.

Eva Husson and director of photography Jamie Ramsay bring a vibrant physicality to this period setting, creating a substantial tenderness and sense of place."

  • UK / US / Germany / Chile
  • 1h 51min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Pablo Larraín
  • Cast: Kristen Stewart, Timothy Spall, Jack Farthing, Sean Harris, Sally Hawkins

Pablo Larraín’s sublime ‘fable from a true story’ imagines a Christmas weekend at Sandringham in the early 1990s, as an unhappy Princess Diana contemplates saying ‘no’.

As played with intoxicating perfection by Kristen Stewart, who dominates almost every scene of Spencer, Diana is dying on the vine, showing only flashes of her former effervescence. Hers is the world’s most scrutinised persona since she began living the fairy-tale life of a girl who grew up to marry a prince; in reality, her husband rather publicly loves someone else. She’s also suffocating under the expectations of total subservience to Royal protocol. Working from a beautiful script by Steven Knight, Larraín (Jackie) ingeniously depicts a world in which every polished spoon and heavy curtain, every steely stare from staff, even a seemingly ‘jolly’ Christmas tradition, expresses Her Majesty’s disapproval of the young princess. The exquisite craft of Spencer makes you want to freeze every moment. director of photography Claire Mathon (Portrait of a Lady on Fire) shoots in 4:3 ratio with a micro-universe of colour emerging from the muted environments designed by Guy Hendrix Dyas. And Jonny Greenwood illuminates Diana’s internal tussle with solo piano and strings. It’s oppressive, until it isn’t anymore. Stewart and Larraín deliver a finale that will break your heart and make it skip all at once.
