8 And A Half
  • 1963
  • Italy
  • 138 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Federico Fellini
  • Cast: Marcello Mastroianni, Claudia Cardinale, Anouk Aimée, Sandra Milo

Showing in a pristine new 35mm print. Many regard this moody magnum opus as the Italian maestro's finest hour. Following a scenario not unlike the one that faced Fellini himself when he was under pressure to come up with a sequel to the massive international success of 'La Dolce Vita', Mastroianni plays a filmmaker plagued by intellectual insecurity and Catholic guilt as a weird selection of actresses, financiers, writers and hucksters dog his every move. As ever with Fellini, it's all about spectacle rather than ideas, but the show is a sparkling one.

Cinderella

Cinderella

  • US/UK
  • 105 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Lily James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Stellan Skarsgård, Nonso Anozie, Derek Jacobi, Hayley Atwell, Ben Chaplin

Cinderella (James) loses her parents and is left with stepmother Lady Tremaine (Blanchett) and cruel stepsisters (McShera and Grainger); but soon enough, she's off to the ball. Weitz's crafty script has enough surreal touches to keep you interested and the result, while hardly a new take on the story, is still a pleasant surprise.

Dark Horse

Dark Horse
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 85 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Louise Osmond

Cheery documentary about Dream Alliance, the racehorse bred in a South Wales back garden by barmaid and whippet breeder Jan Vokes, with the support of a co-operative of locals. Writer-director Osmond avoids predictability, keeping the story taut and engaging. Stirring, unsentimental and gripping.

Far from the Madding Crowd

Far from the Madding Crowd
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 119 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Thomas Vinterberg
  • Cast: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Juno Temple, Michael Sheen

Bathsheba Everdene (Mulligan) is a headstrong rural girl who inherits a farm and attracts the attention of three suitors; lowly Gabriel (Schoenaerts), well-to-do Boldwood (Sheen) and unscrupulous Troy (Sturridge). A straight-up take on Hardy's classic; Mulligan is a convincing Bathsheba and Vinterberg captures the brewing tragedy magnificently.

The Impressionists: Exhibition on Screen

Phoenix

Phoenix
  • 2014
  • Germany
  • 98 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christian Petzold
  • Cast: Nina Hoss, Ronald Zehrfeld, Nina Kunzendorf

Berlin, 1945: Nelly (Hoss), a camp survivor and burns victim, returns home to find that her husband (Zehrfeld) fails to recognise her, believing her to be a stranger who resembles her dead wife. Despite compelling performances, remarkable design and authentic historical anguish, the basic premise is so implausible that the film can't quite recover.

A Royal Night Out

A Royal Night Out
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 97 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Julian Jarrold
  • Written by: Trevor De Silva/Kevin Hood
  • Cast: Sarah Gadon, Emily Watson, Rupert Everett

Whimsical romance based on the true story of how, on VE Day 1945, the teenage princesses Elizabeth (Gadon) and Margaret (Powley) were allowed out of Buckingham Palace to celebrate with the crowds. Gadon is hugely likeable, Powley steals scenes, Everett is excellent as their father and it's tender, funny and occasionally raucous.

The Salvation

The Salvation
  • 2015
  • Denmark
  • 15
  • Directed by: Kristian Levring
  • Cast: Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Eric Cantona

America, 1871: when Danish ex-pat Jon (Mikkelsen) kills the murderers of his wife (Fabricius) and son (Bjarke), he incurs the wrath of land baron Delarue (Morgan). Mikkelsen is terrific, Morgan is a despicable villain and Green, as a scarred mute, steals the movie without uttering a word. Impressive, well-made and passionately acted Western.

  • UK/Italy
  • 92 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Uberto Pasolini
  • Written by: Uberto Pasolini
  • Cast: Eddie Marsan, Joanne Froggatt, Karen Drury

John (Marsan) is a funeral officer for Lambeth Council, who meticulously arranges funerals for those who die alone; with redundancy looming, he decides to make an extra effort on his final case. A potent and poignant exploration of love and death, with wonderful performances from Marsan and Froggatt.
