1917

1917
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Sam Mendes
  • Cast: George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Claire Duburcq, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch

Lance Corporals Schofield (MacKay) and Blake (Chapman) are given the job of hand-delivering a message to another unit, across the mud and misery of the trenches. It suffers from simplistic dialogue and flat characterisation, but it’s visually impressive and a respectable, heartfelt tribute to the sacrifice of WWI.

  • UK / US
  • 2h
  • PG
  • Directed by: Tom Hooper
  • Cast: James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson, Francesca Hayward

Victoria (Hayward) is a cat who find herself caught up with the tribe of the Jellicles, who are assembling to see which of them will ascend to the Heaviside Layer. For all the sheer vigour and professionalism of the performers, the ‘nakedness’ of the cats is unnerving and the end result is more flabbergasting than truly terrible.

The Irishman

The Irishman
  • 2019
  • US
  • 3h 30min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Cast: Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Anna Paquin

The story of mob enforcer and union official Frank Sheeran (De Niro) and his relationship with Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino) and Mafia string-puller Russell Bufalino (Pesci). The de-aging technology is easy to forgive thanks to the masterly filmmaking, and although there’s no room for a complex female character it’s gripping, sombre and builds to a shattering conclusion.

Le Mans '66

Le Mans '66
  • 2019

  • 2h 32min
  • Directed by: James Mangold
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal, Caitriona Balfe, Tracy Letts, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, Remo Girone, Ray McKinnon

Car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) teams up with mechanic/driver Ken Miles (Bale) in the story of how Ford tried to beat Ferrari at Le Mans in 1966. The race scenes are directed with thrilling energy, and if scenes between Miles and his wife Mollie (Balfe) are uneven, it’s an effective story about dreamers who risked everything.

  • Directed by: Robert Wise
  • Written by: Howard Lindsay, Russel Crouse, Maria von Trapp, Ernest Lehman
  • Cast: Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, Eleanor Parker, Richard Haydn, Peggy Wood, Charmian Carr

In the late 1930s, vivacious nun Maria (Andrews) introduces the Von Trapp children to the joys of music, and their widowed father (Plummer) to the joys of love as Nazism begins to sweep Austria. One of the great screen musicals, completely uncynical, and boasting a host of memorable songs and charm-sodden moments. And it's all based on a true story.
