- 1h 55min
- Directed by: Doug Liman
- Cast: Tom Cruise, Sarah Wright, Domhnall Gleeson, Lola Kirke
Barry Seal (Cruise) is a once hotshot pilot turned family man, bored of life in commercial air travel, but then a mysterious man (Gleeson) turns up with an offer of undercover CIA work. It’s a hoot with an edge, as Barry gets more embroiled with CIA-sponsored terrorism; good to see Cruise thriving outside his usual zone.

- Cast: Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy, Diana Rigg
Dashing young Robin (Garfield) marries lovely young Diana (Foy) and they set off for Nairobi, where Robin rather inconveniently contracts polio which paralyses him from the neck down and forces him to rely on a respirator. Serkis’s directorial debut is an unashamed tearjerker, undoubtedly heavy-handed but redeemed by Foy’s sensible presence and Garfield’s decency.

- Cast: Olivia Cooke, Eddie Marsan, Bill Nighy
In Victorian London, Scotland Yard detective John Kildare becomes embroiled with music hall performer Lizzie Cree (Olivia Cooke). This adaptation by Jane Goldman of Peter Ackroyd’s 1994 novel never quite finds its rhythm, and although Cooke and Nighy are good, it promises more than it delivers.

Charles Dickens (Stevens), down on his luck, is in desperate need of a hit when Ebenezer Scrooge (Plummer) pops into his head and starts offering pointers. Decent if occasionally twee adaptation of Les Standiford’s non-fiction book, with Stevens being sympathetic and energetic and Plummer clearly relishing a chance to do Scrooge.
