The Aftermath

The Aftermath
  • 2019
  • UK / US / Germany
  • 1h 48min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Kent
  • Cast: Alexander Skarsgård, Keira Knightley, Jason Clarke

In post-WWII Hamburg, Rachael (Knightley) and her officer husband Lewis (Clarke) are living in a house with the German owner Stefan (Skarsgård) confined to the attic, and soon Rachael is drawn to Stefan. Rhidian Brook’s original novel may work, but on screen, the stiff upper lips and war-is-hell clichés are ridiculously shop-worn and clumsy.

Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel
  • 2019
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck
  • Cast: Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Gemma Chan, Ben Mendelsohn, Robert Kazinsky

Danvers (Larson) is a fighter with the Kree Starforce who finds herself on Earth, and encountering Agent Nick Fury (Jackson). The storyline doesn’t give Larson a lot of time to establish a persona, but her charm, style and ass-kicking make her Marvel’s coolest customer and whatever it lacks in heart, it makes up for with sheer likeability.

The Great Escape

The Great Escape
  • 1963
  • US
  • 2h 53min
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Sturges
  • Cast: Steve McQueen, James Garner, Richard Attenborough, James Donald, Charles Bronson, Donald Pleasence, James Coburn

The classic WWII escape drama, featuring a fine ensemble cast trying to get out of the Nazi stalag. McQueen's 'Cooler King' became a screen icon, particularly in the scene where he attempts to jump over a field of barbed wire fences on a motorbike.

Green Book

Green Book
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • Directed by: Peter Farrelly
  • Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini

Don Shirley (Ali), virtuoso pianist, is chauffeured around the American South in 1962 by his Italian-American driver Tony (Mortensen), and much learning ensues. It’s beautifully made and very worthy, but far too gentle and broad to be effective; Tony, rather than Don, is the heart of the story and it lacks bite.

The Kindergarten Teacher

The Kindergarten Teacher
  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 36min
  • Directed by: Sara Colangelo
  • Cast: Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gael García Bernal, Ato Blankson-Wood

Lisa (Gyllenhaal) is a downtrodden kindergarten teacher who passes off the poems of one of her students as her own. This remake of a 2014 Israeli film stays grounded but it doesn’t have a satisfying enough payoff to its well-developed and intriguing situation.

On the Basis of Sex

On the Basis of Sex
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Mimi Leder
  • Cast: Felicity Jones, Armie Hammer, Justin Theroux

Biopic of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Jones), focusing on her journey from law student in the 50s to crusading lawyer in the 70s. Jones brings emotional conviction and power to the role, and her chemistry with Hammer as her lawyer husband Marty is sweet. Inspirational stuff.

What Men Want

What Men Want
  • 2019
  • US
  • Directed by: Adam Shankman
  • Cast: Taraji P. Henson, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Max Greenfield

Ali (Henson) is a sports agent who can suddenly understand the thoughts of her male co-workers. It fails to make the most of the battle of the sexes premise, becoming a predictable rom-com, but Henson gives an impressively physical performance and Badu has fun as the wacky psychic who starts the whole debacle.

Odeon Swiss Cottage in North London first opened its doors in 1937 and underwent a £3 million refurbishment in 2011, bringing it right up to date with one of only five IMAX 3D screens in London.

The five-screen cinema is directly adjacent to Swiss Cottage underground station and a five minute walk from Finchley Road underground station. A number of buses also pass by and there is a Regency pay and display car park next to the cinema.

Next door to the cinema there's a leisure centre and a number of food and drink establishments, including Ye Olde Swiss Cottage Pub. The cinema itself is home to a Costa Coffee and Ambar, which specialises in cocktails and Champagne.
