When 12 granite pod-like spaceships land on Earth, linguistic expert Dr Louise Banks (Adams) is recruited to try to communicate with their owners. Powerful, intelligent and profound sci-fi, with assured direction, impressive but restrained effects and anchored by a mesmerising performance from Adams as the brave, vulnerable and fallible central character.

- Written by: Aleksandr Sokurov

A meditation on the most iconic of museums: the Louvre. Sokurov's roving camera, restless ghosts and emphasis on history as being alive and kicking evokes his masterpiece Russian Ark but the focus on the Louvre gives it unique character. A true conversation with the past.

- Cast: Madina Nalwanga, David Oyelowo, Lupita Nyong'o
Biopic of Phiona Mutesi (Nalwanga), a girl from the slums of Katwe, Uganda, who turned out to have a genius for chess. Confidently heartwarming stuff, if a little predictable, with a wonderfully engrossing performance from Nalwanga and classy support from Oyelowo as Phiona's coach and Nyong'o as her mother.
