Book Club

Book Club
  • 2018
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bill Holderman
  • Cast: Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Mary Steenburgen

Four women (Keaton, Fonda, Bergen and Steenburgen) form a book club to read Fifty Shades of Grey, and in so doing reassess their lives. Irresistibly cheeky and shamelessly cheesy ensemble drama in which older women are placed in the centre of the action, with a torrent of innuendo delivered with relish by a superior cast.

Lean on Pete

Lean on Pete
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 2h 1min
  • Directed by: Andrew Haigh
  • Cast: Charlie Plummer, Steve Buscemi, Chloe Sevigny

Teenage Charley (Plummer) goes to work for grizzled horse trainer Del (Buscemi) and befriends the titular horse, before going on the road in search of his aunt. Haigh’s delicate directorial style makes a desperately sad coming-of-age tale very watchable, helped by Plummer’s appealingly understated performance.

That Good Night

That Good Night
  • 2017
  • UK/Portugal
  • 1h 30min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Eric Styles
  • Cast: John Hurt, Sofia Helin, Max Brown

Ralph Maitland (Hurt) is a celebrated screenwriter coming to terms with his impending death, who receives a visit from his son Michael (Brown) and Michael’s girlfriend (Richards). A maudlin and rather predictable drama notable for being Hurt’s last major screen role; he gives a commanding but vanity-free performance, and has some good scenes with Dance as an angel of death figure.
