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.

Dear White People

Dear White People
  • 2014
  • US
  • 1h 48min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Justin Simien
  • Cast: Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Kyle Gallner

This canny satire from Simien follows the lives of four black students at an Ivy League college. It presents a complex picture of racial politics and identity in the US, taking matters way beyond simple provocation, and is performed to perfection by its young, predominantly black cast. This film provides thoughtful, witty commentary on the dog-eat-dog world of ambitious hopefuls of any skin colour, and is executed with both class and character.

  • 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.

An Impossible Love

An Impossible Love
  • 2018
  • France / Belgium
  • 2h 15min
  • Directed by: Catherine Corsini
  • Cast: Virginie Efira, Niels Schneider, Jehnny Beth

The story of Rachel (Efira) and her relationships with good-for-nothing Philippe (Schneider), and her daughter Chantal and her relationship with her absent father. By turns distressing and engrossing, it’s a remarkable tale of how one man’s actions affect the lives of two women.

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.
