Hereditary

Hereditary
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 7min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ari Aster
  • Cast: Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro

Annie (Collette) is an artist who crafts a dollhouse depicting the traumas of her life, but then her family begins to feel they’re being haunted by her late mother. Unnervingly oppressive debut from Aster, exploring maternal guilt and family anxiety. Collette has one of her best roles in years.

I, Tonya

I, Tonya
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h
  • 15
  • Directed by: Craig Gillespie
  • Cast: Margot Robbie, Allison Janney, Sebastian Stan, Paul Walter Hauser

Sympathetic but blackly funny biopic of disgraced American skater Tonya Harding (Robbie), who suffered violent abuse from a young age and strove to get recognition in a sport that didn’t welcome her. Robbie does affecting, impressive and Oscar-nominated work and Janney revels in viciousness as Tonya’s awful mum LaVona.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: JA Bayona
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, B. D. Wong, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall

Raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) and his ex, Claire (Howard) return to Isla Nublar to rescue the dinosaurs from an impending volcanic eruption. Lots of ideas and some earnest lessons about conservation can’t hide that the franchise is running out of oomph, but it’s still fun.

McQueen

McQueen
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 51min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ian Bonhôte, Peter Ettedgui
  • Cast: Alexander McQueen

Elegant documentary on the working-class London lad who became chief designer at Givenchy, combining behind-the-scenes footage with archive comments and fresh interviews, looking at the grief caused by the loss of close friend Isabella Blow and his beloved mother. Informative, engrossing but never maudlin.

Ocean's 8

Ocean's 8
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 50min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gary Ross
  • Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter

Debbie Ocean (Bullock) sets in motion a plan to swipe a precious diamond necklace, and with pal Lou (Blanchett) puts together a gang of female crooks. The performances are great fun but Ross’s anonymous direction doesn’t add much, and it’s a bit let down by a needless subplot and unnecessary cameos.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 14min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ron Howard
  • Cast: Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo

The origin story of the young Han Solo (Ehrenreich), as he gets out of Corellia, meets Chewbacca (Suotamo) and Lando (Glover) for the first time, and runs into former lover Qi’ra (Clarke). Ehrenreich has just the right easy charm and despite some missteps it’s an enjoyable yarn with fine set-pieces.

A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ava DuVernay
  • Written by: Madeleine L'Engle (novel), Jennifer Lee (screenplay)
  • Cast: Storm Reid, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peña, André Holland, Zach Galifianakis, Oprah Winfrey

Meg (Reid) is a headstrong, mixed-race 13-year-old who has to deal with the usual adolescent issues while searching for her missing scientist father (Pine); she soon goes on a planet-hopping adventure. Reid is an utterly charming heroine and the film allows her to be opinionated and self-doubting; an inspirational watch for all ages and genders.
