If Beale Street Could Talk

If Beale Street Could Talk
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Barry Jenkins
  • Cast: KiKi Layne, Stephan James, Regina King

Tish (Layne) and Fonny (James) are friends since childhood who grow up to realise that they’re soulmates, but then Fonny gets arrested and charged with rape. Jenkins’s follow-up to Moonlight is an enchanting, heartbreaking love story, adapted from James Baldwin’s novel. A great film with anger in its tender heart.

Instant Family

Instant Family
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 58min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Sean Anders
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Rose Byrne, Isabela Moner

Pete (Wahlberg) and Elie (Byrne) are a couple who decide to try fostering children, and they take in teenage Lizzy (Moner) and her siblings. A good vehicle for Wahlberg’s blue-collar charm, with humour that feels earned and details that have the smack of real experience. Manipulative but likable.

Wild Strawberries
  • 1957
  • Sweden
  • 1h 34min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ingmar Bergman
  • Written by: Ingmar Bergman
  • Cast: Victor Sjöström, Bibi Andersson, Ingrid Thulin, Gunnar Björnstrand

Following an appalling, symbol-laden nightmare, an elderly professor (Sjöström) finds himself reliving his life as he travels to an academic awards ceremony. Bergman's customary bleakness is shelved, with enjoyable results, while Sjöström's performance glows with feeling and intelligence.
