Love, Simon

Love, Simon
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • Directed by: Greg Berlanti
  • Cast: Nick Robinson, Jennifer Garner, Katherine Langford

Simon (Robinson) is a young high school student who hasn’t yet come out as gay, who starts swapping email with an anonymous fellow student calling himself ‘Blue’. The script gets bogged down in irrelevant subplots and the first kiss is delayed until the end credits, making it a disappointing cop-out as gay teen movies go; indies handle this much better.

McKellen: Playing the Part

McKellen: Playing the Part Live
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 32min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joe Stephenson
  • Cast: Ian McKellen, Scott Chambers, Luke Evans, Frances Barber

A feature-length interview with Ian McKellen, in which the actor looks back over his long career as an actor and LGBT activist. Those who only know him from appearances in big movie franchises will find great clips from his theatre work, and McKellen is a born, unpretentious storyteller. Warm and endearing.

On Chesil Beach

On Chesil Beach
  • 2017
  • UK
  • Directed by: Dominic Cooke
  • Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Anne-Marie Duff, Emily Watson

Adaptation by Ian McEwan of his own novella, in which newlyweds Eddie (Howle) and Florence (Ronan) have an unsatisfying wedding night in a Dorset hotel in the early 60s. Overwrought and underwhelming, it’s filmed with a heavy hand by theatre director Cooke, making it for self-important and unengaging viewing.

A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 30min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John Krasinski
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe

Lee Abbott (Krasinski), his wife Evelyn (Blunt), son (Jupe) and deaf daughter (Simmonds) live and work in an empty dystopian world in complete silence, hiding from creatures who hunt by sound. Krasinski's third film as director is a smart, weird sci-fi frightener that is beautifully simple but thoughtfully composed.
