  • Written by: Guy Hibbert
  • Cast: Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman

When a military operation to bring in a radicalised Englishwoman turns into a planned drone strike, commanding officer Katherine Powell (Mirren) and her colleagues have to juggle military necessity with saving civilian lives. Nerve-shredding and thought-provoking against-the-clock thriller which probes the moral grey areas of drone warfare.

Florence Foster Jenkins

Florence Foster Jenkins
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 110 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stephen Frears
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg

Florence Foster Jenkins (Streep) is a wealthy, cultured New York socialite, who insists on performing as a soprano in spite of a total inability to sing. Streep throws herself endearingly into the role, Grant is wonderful as her debonair husband and Frears keeps a confident balance of uproarious laughs and genuine pathos.

  • 2016

  • 111 min

  • Directed by: Jeff Nichols
  • Written by: Jeff Nichols
  • Cast: Adam Driver, Kirsten Dunst, Joel Edgerton

A father goes on the run with his son after he discovers his boy has mysterious powers in this film, which harks back to the grounded 1980s sci-fi of Steven Spielberg and John Carpenter. It's filled with beautiful shots of the Texan dusk, and Shannon is compelling in his role as father Roy. The revelation of what's really going on, though, is lamely conceived and cheaply mounted, and it's hard not to feel cheated.

Miles Ahead

Miles Ahead
  • 2016
  • US
  • Directed by: Don Cheadle
  • Cast: Don Cheadle, Ewan McGregor, Emayatzy Corinealdi

In 1970s New York, jazz legend Miles Davis (Cheadle) is visited by journalist Dave Braden (McGregor) and soon the two are essentially engaged in a buddy caper to retrieve a precious master tape. Despite the many biopic clichés, Cheadle's directorial debut is an entertaining passion project and both he and McGregor make an enjoyable double act.

  • Hungary
  • 107 min
  • Directed by: László Nemes
  • Written by: László Nemes, Clara Royer
  • Cast: Géza Röhrig, Levente Molnár, Urs Rechn

Auschwitz, 1944: prisoner Saul (Röhrig) is a member of the Sonderkommando, tasked with disposing of corpses after mass executions, who becomes determined to give a proper burial to a body he believes to be that of his son. Sensitive and non-judgemental but also intense and challenging (it won the Grand Prix at Cannes.)

The Survivalist

The Survivalist
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 101 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Stephen Fingleton
  • Cast: Martin McCann, Mia Goth, Olwen Fouere

After the breakdown of society, a nameless man (McCann) scratches out a basic existence in a Northern Irish forest, but then he meets two strangers (Goth and Fouere), and they strike a deal for survival. With provocative themes and explicit nudity it avoids cliché and exploitation, and the exceptional cast give it weight and heart. Stunning and thought-provoking.
