The Farewell

The Farewell
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 38min
  • Directed by: Lulu Wang
  • Cast: Awkwafina, Tzi Ma, Diana Lin, Shuzhen Zhao

When a Chinese grandmother gets terminal cancer, the family is torn between hiding the diagnosis from the patient or telling her. Poignant and deeply personal family comedy from Wang, with a hugely affecting performance from rapper-turned-actress Awkwafina as Billi, who adores her Nai Nai (Zhao, effervescent). A bittersweet portrait of undying love.

The Good Liar

The Good Liar
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 49min

  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Ian McKellen, Helen Mirren, Nell Williams

Roy (McKellen) is a con man who targets wealthy widows, and when he targets Betty (Mirren) her son Steven (Tovey) becomes suspicious. It’s a blend of several genres which don’t quite fuse and is ultimately diverting but far from essential.

  • Directed by: Todd Phillips
  • Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro

Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) is an unsuccessful clown who wants to be a comedian, but he gradually turns to evil. This dizzying origin story about Batman’s nemesis is like an ode to 1970s New York City; Phoenix is astonishing and Phillips’s grave vision never swerves. Unmissable.

Last Christmas

Last Christmas
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 43min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, Emma Thompson, Michelle Yeoh

Kate (Clarke) is a Yugoslavian immigrant whose life is going downhill until she meets the mysterious bike-riding Tom (Golding), who seems too good to be true. Thompson and Kimmings’ script is a saccharine romantic fantasy and George Michael’s music isn’t always incorporated effectively, but its heart is in the right place.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
  • 2019
  • US / UK
  • 2h 45min
  • Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Cast: James Marsden, Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio

Past-his-peak actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his stuntman and buddy Cliff Booth (Pitt) are living in Hollywood in 1969; then Sharon Tate (Robbie) and her husband Roman Polanski move in next door. Compelling and provocative, but uneven; for all the fine performances, black comedy and savage violence, Tarantino may have bitten off more than he can chew.
