Beautiful Boy

Beautiful Boy
  • 2018
  • US
  • Directed by: Felix Van Groeningen
  • Cast: Steve Carell, Timothée Chalamet, Maura Tierney

David (Carell) is a successful freelance journalist whose son Nic (Chalamet) becomes dependent on meth. True-life story of family breakdown, capturing the never-ending cycle of rehab and relapse; handsomely photographed but repetitive and a bit formulaic, but Chalamet is outstanding.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody
  • 2018
  • UK/USA
  • 1h 31min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, Mike Myers

The Freddie Mercury story. Malek as Mercury does a great job, with a passionate and impressive performance, but despite the recreation of momentous performances it’s a disappointingly tame affair, with a by-the-numbers screenplay and a bland lack of insight into Mercury’s heritage or sexuality.

Colette

Colette
  • 2018
  • UK / US
  • 1h 51min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Wash Westmoreland
  • Cast: Keira Knightley, Eleanor Tomlinson, Fiona Shaw

Biopic of French writer Colette (Knightley), focusing on her early years and her wild days in fin-de-siecle Paris after her marriage to Henry Gauthier-Villars (West). Knightley is fantastic as the bisexual icon and the film becomes more playful as it goes on. A pleasurable rite of passage about a woman striving for independence.

The Favourite

The Favourite
  • 2018
  • Ireland / UK / US

  • Directed by: Yorgos Lanthimos
  • Cast: Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone, Nicholas Hoult

In the court of Queen Anne (Colman), power is wielded by Lady Sarah Marlborough (Weisz), but then Sarah’s young cousin Abigail (Stone) arrives. Brash, bawdy and beguiling, and a deceptively acute commentary on the nature of power, with career-best work from Weisz and Stone and a commanding performance from Colman as the ailing Queen.

Glass

Glass
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • 15
  • Directed by: M. Night Shyamalan
  • Cast: James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Anya Taylor-Joy, Sarah Paulson, Samuel L. Jackson

Kevin (McAvoy) from Shyamalan’s Split and David (Willis) from his Unbreakable are incarcerated together with the second film’s Mr Glass (Jackson), in this closer to the trilogy. There’s plenty of suspense and fine acting from the three leads, but it would have been better if it had seemed less self-congratulatory. Flawed but entertaining.

Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins Returns
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Marshall
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, Dick Van Dyke, Angela Lansbury, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep

Michael Banks (Whishaw) is facing ruin after the death of his wife, and his sister Jane (Mortimer) can’t help—but then Mary Poppins (Blunt) sails down from the sky. Blunt is suitably brusque and radiant and a fine songstress, and while it’s a sliver of a story it’s impressively imaginative and unashamedly, triumphantly nostalgic.

Mary Queen of Scots

Mary Queen of Scots
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • Directed by: Josie Rourke
  • Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Margot Robbie, Jack Lowden, David Tennant, Martin Compston, Joe Alwyn, Brendan Coyle, Guy Pearce

Mary Stuart (Ronan) and Elizabeth (Robbie) would like to be sisters but political rivalry drives them apart. Ronan gives a sophisticated performance and Robbie as Elizabeth is a blend of nervous uncertainty and confident outrage. Over the top, perhaps, but its ridiculousness hits a raw nerve in the current political climate, where women politicians are attacked for dancing.

Royal Opera House: The Queen of Spades

Schindler's List

Schindler's List
  • 1993
  • US
  • 3h 15min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Cast: Liam Neeson, Ben Kingsley, Ralph Fiennes

Factory owner Oskar Schindler (Neeson) becomes more and more involved in efforts to rescue Jewish workers during the Holocaust, defying amoral Nazi concentration camp commander Amon Goeth (Fiennes). Spielberg's grimmest film doesn't flinch from the terrible reality; despite manipulative moments it's undeniably very moving, with Neeson giving his best work thus far.

Stan & Ollie

Stan & Ollie
  • 2018
  • UK / Canada / US
  • Directed by: Jon S. Baird
  • Cast: Steve Coogan, John C. Reilly, Shirley Henderson, Danny Huston, Nina Arianda, Rufus Jones, Susy Kane

Stan Laurel (Coogan) and Oliver Hardy (Reilly) are touring postwar Britain in the hope of bankrolling their next picture, but their time seems to be passing. A classy, ambitious look at the gruelling nature of showbiz, weaving Laurel & Hardy’s routines into the fabric of the story; Coogan is particularly good and it’s a loving nod to two of cinema’s greats.

The Upside

The Upside
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 6min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Neil Burger
  • Cast: Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston, Nicole Kidman

Dell (Hart) is an unemployed ex-con who gets a job as live-in carer to millionaire Phil (Cranston), paralysed after a hang-gliding accident, and the pair forge an unlikely friendship. Predictable but entertaining remake of the French smash hit comedy-drama Untouchable, with a fine and affecting performance from Hart in particular. Entertaining if formulaic.
