Beautiful Boy

Beautiful Boy
  • 2018
  • US
  • Directed by: Felix Van Groeningen
  • Cast: Steve Carell, Timothée Chalamet, Maura Tierney

David (Carell) is a successful freelance journalist whose son Nic (Chalamet) becomes dependent on meth. True-life story of family breakdown, capturing the never-ending cycle of rehab and relapse; handsomely photographed but repetitive and a bit formulaic, but Chalamet is outstanding.

Colette

Colette
  • 2018
  • UK / US
  • 1h 51min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Wash Westmoreland
  • Cast: Keira Knightley, Eleanor Tomlinson, Fiona Shaw

Biopic of French writer Colette (Knightley), focusing on her early years and her wild days in fin-de-siecle Paris after her marriage to Henry Gauthier-Villars (West). Knightley is fantastic as the bisexual icon and the film becomes more playful as it goes on. A pleasurable rite of passage about a woman striving for independence.

The Favourite

The Favourite
  • 2018
  • Ireland / UK / US
  • 15
  • Directed by: Yorgos Lanthimos
  • Cast: Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone, Nicholas Hoult

In the court of Queen Anne (Colman), power is wielded by Lady Sarah Marlborough (Weisz), but then Sarah’s young cousin Abigail (Stone) arrives. Brash, bawdy and beguiling, and a deceptively acute commentary on the nature of power, with career-best work from Weisz and Stone and a commanding performance from Colman as the ailing Queen.

The Flying Deuces

The Flying Deuces
  • 1939
  • USA
  • 1h 8min
  • U
  • Directed by: A Edward Sutherland
  • Written by: Ralph Spence, Charley Rogers, Fred Schiller, Harry Langdon
  • Cast: Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Jean Parker, Reginald Gardiner

A lovelorn Ollie is persuaded by Stan that joining the Foreign Legion is the only way to forget his spurned advances on Georgette, the innkeeper's daughter. No prizes for guessing that the hapless pair don't fit in too well in the military.

Mary Queen of Scots

Mary Queen of Scots
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • Directed by: Josie Rourke
  • Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Margot Robbie, Jack Lowden, David Tennant, Martin Compston, Joe Alwyn, Brendan Coyle, Guy Pearce

Mary Stuart (Ronan) and Elizabeth (Robbie) would like to be sisters but political rivalry drives them apart. Ronan gives a sophisticated performance and Robbie as Elizabeth is a blend of nervous uncertainty and confident outrage. Over the top, perhaps, but its ridiculousness hits a raw nerve in the current political climate, where women politicians are attacked for dancing.

The Public Enemy
  • 1931

Gangster classic set in the seedy Chicago underworld of the Depressed early 30s.

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.
