- Cast: Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning
John McBurney (Farrell) is a wounded Union deserter in the US Civil War who winds up in a school for girls, where headmistress Martha (Kidman) is persuaded to show him kindness. Coppola’s remake of Don Siegel’s sweaty 1971 original plays like meticulously crafted high-camp melodrama; intermittently enjoyable, but rushed and flustered.

Gru (Carell) and new wife and fellow agent Lucy (Wiig) are ensconced with their adorable adopted daughters when supervillain Balthazar Bratt (Parker) decides to take revenge on Hollywood for neglecting him. It’s all a bit familiar but it skilfully balances kid and adult appeal with its madcap approach and embarrassment of mischievous energy.

In a small German town after WW1, Anna (Beer) mourns her fiancé Frantz who was killed, when she meets Frenchman Adrien (Niney), who claims to have been his friend. Touching, mournful and beautifully crafted tale, with a fine performance from Beer as just one of the many impressive elements.

Mikael (Isaac) is a poor Armenian medical student in Constantinople in 1914, who falls in love with the vivacious Ana (Le Bon), except that she’s already carrying on with the dashing American journalist Chris (Bale). Epic, handsomely cast but overcooked historical romance set against the backdrop of the Turkish genocide of Armenians.
