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.

Ling (Chen Shiang-chyi) is a middle-aged seamstress abandoned by her daughter and husband; when caring for her hospitalised mother-in-law she starts to bond with a man in a nearby bed whose eyes are bandaged over. Quiet, restless and lovely study of longing and abandonment, avoiding sentimentality and channelling understandable anger into a powerful conclusion.

  • Cast: Brayan Santamarià, Carols Fernando Perez, Alejandra Borrero

Ten-year-old Eric (Santamarià) is sent to live with his estranged carpenter father (Perez), but when wealthy Maria (Borrero) invites them to spend Christmas with her family, the festive façade begins to crack. Solid piece of Colombian realism, somewhat sluggish if well-intentioned, enlivened by an outstanding performance from newcomer Santamarià.

Documentary about Indonesian death squads, from the perspective of optometrist Adi, whose brother was killed by a squad in 1965.

Sherlock Holmes (McKellen) is 93 and living in with his stern housekeeper (Linney) and her son (Parker); the aged detective is still haunted by a case from 30 years before. McKellen is superb, Linney is on form and while the unhurried pace will frustrate some, if you like a meditative Holmes, this is for you.

Andrew (Teller) is an aspiring jazz drummer at Shaffer Conservatory, who falls under the influence of terrifying conductor/instructor Terence Fletcher (Simmons).

Riveting, audaciously edited and voraciously performed.
