Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad

Belle (Watson) is forced to live with a Beast (Stevens) in this live-action retelling of the 1991 blockbuster. Watson is winsome but feisty, Evans as Gaston is splendid of voice and hilariously odious, McGregor brings much joie de vivre to ‘Be Our Guest’, and it’s an enchantingly realised delight.

The Boss Baby

The Boss Baby
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 97 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Tom McGrath
  • Written by: Marla Frazee/Michael McCullers
  • Cast: Miles Christopher Bakshi, Alec Baldwin, Tobey Maguire, Steve Buscemi

The Boss Baby (Baldwin) is a tot with the mannerisms of a ruthless corporate tycoon, who upsets seven year old Tim (Bakshi). The frantic visual style and crude slapstick overwrite the charm of the original story by Marla Frazee, and there’s not much for audiences to take to their hearts.

Cézanne et Moi

Cézanne et Moi
  • 2016
  • France
  • 116 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Danièle Thompson
  • Cast: Guillaume Canet, Guillaume Gallienne, Alice Pol, Deborah Francois

The story of the lifelong friendship between painter Paul Cézanne (Gallienne) and Emile Zola (Canet), who share an idyllic childhood in Aix-en-Provence before Zola becomes an acclaimed writer and Cézanne an eternally aggrieved bu unsuccessful painter. Sketchy and superficial but with nice production design; still more soap opera than serious drama.

The Hippopotamus

The Hippopotamus
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 89 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John Jencks
  • Cast: Roger Allam, Matthew Modine, Russell Tovey, Emily Berrington

Ted Wallace (Allam) is a failed poet and bitter crtic who is asked by an old friend to investigate miracle cures on a country estate. A half-hearted mixture of Poirot-like sleuthing, Wodehouse-styloe hijinks and slapstick, only partially redeemed by Allam’s ebullient performance as the withering Ted.

Lady Macbeth

Lady Macbeth
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 89 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: William Oldroyd
  • Cast: Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Naomi Ackie

Katherine (Pugh) is a young bride shackled to a middle-aged man; when left alone in the grand manor house she begins an affair with a stable-hand (Jarvis) and it all goes downhill. Restrained, compulsively watchable debut feature with a chilling, droll performance from Pugh as the wicked but compelling Katherine.

  • Directed by: Sean Foley
  • Written by: Julian Barratt, Simon Farnaby
  • Cast: Essie Davis, Julian Barratt, Richard McCabe, Alex Wyndham, Alannah Olivia

Washed-up actor Richard Thorncroft (Barratt) was the star of an 80s British TV series in which he was an MI5 agent with an optical lie detector who could ‘see the truth’; in the present day, a serial killer case draws him in. Endearingly silly comedy with a fully committed performance from Barratt; fans of Partridge and Garth Marenghi will appreciate it.
