Born to be Blue

Born to be Blue
  • 2015
  • Canada/UK
  • 98 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Robert Budreau
  • Cast: Ethan Hawke, Carmen Ejogo, Callum Keith Rennie

Unconventional biopic of West Coast trumpet player Chet Baker (Hawke), mixing fact and fiction in a story where Baker is asked to play himself in a movie. Hawke has rarely been better, as the film captures the textures and torments of an artist's life. A cool, crucial indie.

Bridget Jones's Baby

Bridget Jones's Baby
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 123 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sharon Maguire
  • Cast: Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey

Bridget (Zellweger) is back, and pregnant, either by handsome American Jack (Dempsey) or Mark (Firth), the ex she never got over. Cue babymaking shenanigans. Bridget's fretting about being a 'spinster' comes across as self-hatred, and the men don't deserve the poor treatment she gives them. Not cute, not charming; just awful.

Captain Fantastic
  • 2016
  • US
  • 118 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Matt Ross
  • Written by: Matt Ross
  • Cast: Viggo Mortensen, George MacKay, Samantha Isler

Ben (Mortensen) has raised a family of six off the grid in the Pacific Northwest, teaching them survival skills and science but leaving them unprepared for the rest of the world. The film doesn't face how Ben seems more like a cult leader than a great dad and it's contrived and contradictory, but Mortensen is a delight.

  • UK / France / Hungary
  • 118 min

An American diplomat (Cunningham) and his European wife (Bejo), living in France in 1919 for the Versailles negotiations, have a pretty son (Sweet) who develops into a horribly spoiled brat. Ambitious and well-crafted but pretentious and narratively unconvincing fable from actor-turned-director Corbet.

Simple, affecting comedy that builds into full-on action, with great chemistry between Neill and Dennison.

Norfolk

  • 87 min
  • Directed by: Martin Radich
  • Cast: Denis Menochet/Barry Keoghan/Goda Letkauskaite/Sean Buckley/Eileen Davies/Rupert Proctor

A powerful and dreamlike new British drama.

A haunting and atmospheric film from director Martin Radich (who made the disturbing 2008 drama Crack Willow) driven by a broodingly intense performance by Denis Menochet (Inglourious Basterds) as a tough-love father whose strong relationship with his teenage son (Barry Keoghan) is tested when the boy befriends a girl (Goda Letkauskaite). The film’s Norfolk backdrop veers between pastoral beauty and a sense of desolation, which emphasises an almost post-apocalyptic mood heightened by Radich’s use of various camera techniques, keeping the mood tense, oblique and confusing.
