The Birth of a Nation

The Birth of a Nation
  • 2016
  • US
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Nate Parker
  • Cast: Nate Parker, Armie Hammer, Aja Naomi King, Jackie Earle Haley, Penelope Ann Miller, Gabrielle Union

Nat Turner (Parker) is a slave in early 19th century Virginia, used by his owners to encourage other slaves to submit, but who is plotting an uprising of his own. Despite the controversy surrounding Parker, the film deserves to be seen: angry, dramatic and bittersweet, it's a story that needs telling.

The Eagle Huntress

The Eagle Huntress
  • 2016
  • UK / Mongolia / US
  • 87 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Otto Bell
  • Cast: Aisholpan Nurgaiv, Daisy Ridley (voice)

Aisholpan Nurgaiv, a 13 year old girl, trains to become the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter. Crowd-pleasing documentary which skirts some of the deeper issues, and Ridley's monotonous voice-over doesn't help, but only a cold heart would fail to be stirred by Aisholpan's game-changing story.

  • Written by: Raymond Briggs, Roger Mainwood

Adaptation of author and illustrator Raymond Briggs's book about his own parents, charting their lives from their first meeting until their deaths.

La La Land

La La Land
  • 2016
  • US
  • 126 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Damien Chazelle
  • Cast: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, J.K. Simmons

In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). Audaciously inventive homage to classic movie musicals, technically wonderful and joyously emotional, with Gosling as a goofy idealistic charmer and Stone showing the versatility, vulnerability and talent of a young Shirley MacLaine. Irresistible.

My Scientology Movie

My Scientology Movie
  • 2015
  • 99 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John Dower
  • Cast: Louis Theroux, Mark Rathbun,

Louis Theroux travels to Los Angeles to audition actors playing prominent Scientologists, engaging ex-Scientologist Marty Rathbun to help. The church doesn't take it well. There's much to enjoy in Theroux's approach, but the focus on current and much-disliked leader David Miscavige precludes the film from taking a broader look at the religion and its peculiar appeal for some people.

Snowden

Snowden
  • 2016
  • US
  • Directed by: Oliver Stone
  • Cast: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley, Rhys Ifans, Nicolas Cage, Melissa Leo

The story of Edward Snowden, the former CIA employee who in 2013 leaked thousands of classified documents to the Guardian, revealing the scope and reach of the USA's global surveillance program. Smartly dramatised and absorbing drama with fine performances from all, with Gordon-Levitt completely convincing as the earnest, idealistic Snowden.

Starfish

Starfish
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 94 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bill Clark
  • Cast: Joanne Froggatt, Tom Riley, Ellie Copping, Michele Dotrice, Phoebe Nicholls

Tom (Riley) falls ill with what his wife Nicola (Froggatt) thinks is food poisoning, but he is belatedly diagnosed with multiple organ failure and sepsis, necessitating multiple amputations. A gruelling dramatisation of true events, relentlessly grim, it's restrained, thoughtful and well-acted but that doesn't stop it being hard to endure.

You've Been Trumped Too

You've Been Trumped Too
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 79 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Anthony Baxter
  • Cast: Molly Forbes, Michael Forbes, Donald Trump

Documentary on the follow-up to events in You've Been Trumped. It's a history of promises of economic support, jobs and environmental diligence that have gone unmet, and Baxter draws astute parallels between Trump's insults and harassment of locals in Scotland, and his ugly, hate-filled presidential election campaign.
