Polina

  • 2016
  • France
  • 1h 48min
  • Directed by: Valérie Müller, Angelin Preljocaj
  • Cast: Anastasia Shevtsova, Veronika Zhovnytska, Juliette Binoche

Polina (Zhovnytska as a girl, Shevtsova as a teenager) is a Russian ballet student who travels to Europe in search of new opportunities. The pleasure and pain of her journey are both examined, with exquisite dance sequences but also bleeding feet and hard graft. Real-life ballerina Shevtsova is utterly beguiling.

Stan & Ollie

Stan & Ollie
  • 2018
  • UK / Canada / US
  • Directed by: Jon S. Baird
  • Cast: Steve Coogan, John C. Reilly, Shirley Henderson, Danny Huston, Nina Arianda, Rufus Jones, Susy Kane

Stan Laurel (Coogan) and Oliver Hardy (Reilly) are touring postwar Britain in the hope of bankrolling their next picture, but their time seems to be passing. A classy, ambitious look at the gruelling nature of showbiz, weaving Laurel & Hardy’s routines into the fabric of the story; Coogan is particularly good and it’s a loving nod to two of cinema’s greats.

Tulip Fever

Tulip Fever
  • 2015
  • US
  • Directed by: Justin Chadwick
  • Cast: Dane DeHaan, Christoph Waltz, Jack O'Connell, Judi Dench

Sophia (Vikander) is married to elderly Cornelis (Waltz) but they can’t conceive a child; then he hires penniless artist Jan (DeHaan) to paint her, and she and Jan begin an affair. It’s a lovely recreation of 17th century Amsterdam, but Chadwick buries the story in restless camerawork, garbled dialogue and bawdy comic elements.
