American Honey

American Honey
  • 2016
  • UK, US
  • 162 min
  • Directed by: Andrea Arnold
  • Cast: Sasha Lane, Shia LaBeouf, Riley Keough

When 18-year-old Star (Lane) meets Jake (LaBeouf, deliciously gross) and his crew of magazine sellers, all ruled over the straight-talking Krystal (Keough), she joins them on an epic road trip across America. A spine-tingling, uplifting tale of youth and rebellion from Arnold, with a pumping soundtrack and impressive performances.

Denial

Denial
  • 2016
  • UK/US
  • 109 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Mick Jackson
  • Cast: Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Spall

Deborah Lipstadt (Weisz) is a historian and lecturer who faces a libel suit after she derides controversial author David Irving (Spall) for his views on the Holocaust. This dramatisation of a 1996 court case has some compelling stretches, but Hare’s script lacks insight and it’s little more than a dry reconstruction of the trial.

Hacksaw Ridge

Hacksaw Ridge
  • 2016
  • US
  • 139 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mel Gibson
  • Cast: Andrew Garfield, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Vince Vaughn

Desmond Doss (Garfield) is a Seventh Day Adventist who enrols in the US Army in WWII and then refuses even to pick up a rifle, let alone shoot one. Doss’s real-life bravery and Garfield’s awkward-everyman persona make this rise above Gibson’s rather clichéd reverence, and the battle sequences are superbly realised.

Notes on Blindness
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 90 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Pete Middleton, James Spinney
  • Cast: Dan Renton Skinner, Simone Kirby,

Haunting, throat-catching drama-documentary about theologian John Hull (Skinner), who went blind in the early 80s and recorded hundreds of cassettes in which he talked about his condition and what it meant to him. Actors lip-sync to his recordings, creating an elegiac, immersive and deeply moving portrait of Hull, his wife (Kirby) and his family.
