Asterix: The Mansions of the Gods

Asterix: The Mansions of the Gods
  • 2014
  • France/Belgium
  • 85 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Louis Clichy, Alexandre Astier
  • Cast: Jack Whitehall, Nick Frost, Greg Davies, Matt Berry, Catherine Tate, Harry Enfield, Dick & Dom, Jim Broadbent

Julius Caesar devises a plan to assimilate the indomitable Gauls by building a luxury housing development in the forest surrounding their village. Much the slickest animated Asterix adaptation, with a sharply-written script which combines satire on capitalism with people being hit in the face with fish; the British dub also has some inspired voice casting.

David Brent: Life on the Road

Life on the Road
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 96 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ricky Gervais
  • Written by: Ricky Gervais
  • Cast: Ricky Gervais, Doc Brown, Andy Burrows, Rebecca Gethings

David Brent (Gervais) takes unpaid leave to pursue rock stardom with his band Foregone Conclusion. The skin-crawling songs are worth the price of admission, although the comedy feels crueller than before, and after a brilliant start and amusing middle, the film dissolves into cheap sentiment.

Fantastic Mr Fox

Fantastic Mr Fox
  • 2009
  • USA
  • 88 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Wes Anderson
  • Cast: George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray

Anderson's inspired choice of stop-motion animation pays off in this beautiful and idiosyncratic adaptation of the well-loved children's tale. While kids may enjoy it, Anderson's typically arch humour is aimed more at their parents, who will also be impressed by the star-studded voice cast – Bill Murray as a badger lawyer anyone?

Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words

Ingrid Bergman in Her Own Words
  • 2015
  • Sweden
  • 114 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stig Björkman
  • Cast: Ingrid Bergman, Roberto Rossellini, Pia Lindström

Respectful but discerning documentary about one of Hollywood's greatest stars, culled from home movies, diaries, letters from friends and contributions from her children (including Isabella Rossellini in delightfully idiosyncratic form). A shrewd and elegant look at a woman who took films more seriously than life.

Love & Friendship

Love & Friendship
  • 2016
  • Ireland/Netherlands/France/US
  • 92 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Whit Stillman
  • Cast: Kate Beckinsale, Chloë Sevigny, Xavier Samuel, Stephen Fry

Lady Susan Vernon (Beckinsale) is penniless, selfish and keen to marry off her nelfected daughter to the nearest wealthy dolt, but she's also smart, witty and beautiful. Stillman gives a wickedly droll adaptation of Jane Austen's short novel, choicely acted by the whole ensemble.

Matilda

Matilda
  • 1996
  • US
  • 98 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Danny DeVito
  • Written by: Nicholas Kazan, Robin Swicord
  • Cast: Mara Wilson, Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman, Embeth Davidtz, Pam Ferris

Capturing the delicious wickedness of Roald Dahl's writing, director De Vito fully exploits exaggeration and playful camera work to tell the tale of a gifted child who uses her super brain to outwit her neglectful parents. Offsetting the loveable Matilda against a series of horribly inflated bad characters, the film's empowering message for children will appeal to the mischevious kid in everyone.

Sing Street
  • 2016
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: John Carney
  • Cast: Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Lucy Boynton, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Aidan Gillen

Fifteen year old Dubliner, Cosmo (Walsh-Peelo), moves from a posh school to a terrifying inner city institution, where in order to deter bullies and attract aspiring model Raphina (Boynton), he starts a band. A little cloying, but overall a funny, cheering sweetly optimistic romance with wit, character and grit.

  • 2014

  • Directed by: Hiromasa Yonebayashi
  • Cast: Sara Takatsuki, Kasumi Arimura, Nanako Matsushima

When asthmatic 12-year-old Anna suffers panic attacks and finds it hard to make friends, her parents send her to her aunt and uncle in the country for the summer, where she finds a new friend in (possibly imagianary) Marnie. Proof that Studio Ghibli has life beyond Miyazaki; a beguiling, delicately executed, almost Hitchcockian tale about complex emotional issues.
