Julien (Gioria) is eleven years old and his parents are splitting up. Against his will, he has to spend alternate weekends with his hated father Antoine (Ménochet). Legrand tackles the issue of domestic abuse with great skill; it’s often profoundly distressing, but that’s precisely the point.

Funny Cow

Funny Cow
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 42min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adrian Shergold
  • Cast: Maxine Peake, Stephen Graham, Paddy Considine

Funny Cow (Peake) is a northern woman who takes to stand-up comedy in the 70s and 80s. The film foregrounds the pain and suffering involved, from her abusive husband Bob (Pitts, also the screenwriter) and the grim reality of working men’s clubs. A fine supporting cast is largely wasted, but a great soundtrack and Peake’s fearless performance give it plenty of soul.

When the corrupt Mayor of Megasaki City sends all the dogs to Trash Island, his 12-year-old ward Atari (Rankin) goes there to find out what happened to his beloved Spots (Schreiber). Sensationally rendered stop-motion tribute to Japanese cinema, rich in detail and full of deadpan heroism and epic ineptitude. Delightful.

Let the Sunshine In

Let the Sunshine In
  • 2017
  • 1h 34min
  • Directed by: Claire Denis
  • Cast: Juliette Binoche, Philippe Katerine, Xavier Beauvois

Isabelle (Binoche) is a powerfully sexy middle-aged woman who for some reason can’t find a half-decent mate; on this farcical plot, Denis hangs an idiosyncratic, empathetic and intimate comedy, adapted from Roland Barthes’ A Lover’s Discourse with a wonderful sense of the absurd. Binoche is self-deprecating and achingly human.

  • 2016
  • UK
  • 2h 5min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Terence Davies
  • Written by: Terence Davies
  • Cast: Cynthia Nixon, Jennifer Ehle, Duncan Duff

Emily Dickinson (Nixon) is a quick-witted, intelligent woman living in 19th century Amherst, Mass., debating with her Catholic lawyer father (Carradine) and pious aunt (Badland). Compelling portrait of the great American poet, with brilliant work from Ehle as Emily’s younger sister and a barnstorming performance from Nixon, combining wit with vulnerability.

Smiles Of A Summer Night

Smiles Of A Summer Night
  • 1955
  • Sweden
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ingmar Bergman
  • Cast: Gunnar Bjornstrand, Eva Dahlbeck, Una Jacobson.

The ex-mistress of a provincial lawyer bumps into her old flame after a number of years and invites both him and his new young wife to her mother's country home for a weekend. Elegant comedy of genteel period manners, which although not of the genre one associates with Bergman is nevertheless handled with a good deal of detached wit and sophistication. It was, of course, the model for Woody Allen's 'Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy'.
