The Big Lebowski

The Big Lebowski
  • 1997
  • US
  • 1h 53min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen (uncredited)
  • Written by: Ethan Coen, Joel Coen
  • Cast: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore

The Coen brothers give their unique twist to a Chandler-esque LA noir, as 70s hippy throwback Jeff 'The Dude' Lebowski (Bridges) is drawn into the sordid affairs of his millionaire namesake. Suddenly he has to sleuth his way through disorganised crime. Trademark oddball characters, surreal imagery and excellent performances grace this virtuoso comedy.

The Bookshop

The Bookshop
  • 2017
  • 1h 53min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Isabel Coixet
  • Cast: Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy, Patricia Clarkson

Florence (Mortimer) is a war widow who causes a stir in a 1950s Suffolk seaside town when she opens a bookshop. Like modern-day Brief Encounter, this adaptation of Penelope Fitzgerald’s novel is all unspoken sentiment which never descends into mawkishness. Restrained but quietly subversive.

Cold War

Cold War
  • 2018
  • Poland / France / UK
  • Directed by: Pawel Pawlikowski
  • Cast: Joanna Kulig, Tomasz Kot, Borys Szyc, Jeanne Balibar

In 1949 Poland, Wiktor (Kot) is given the job of starting a folk music and dance academy, where he falls for Zula (Kulig). Pawlikowski’s film, dedicated to his own parents, is shot in ravishing black and white and is a stunning love story, steeped in song and emotion and exquisitely crafted.

The King of Thieves

The King of Thieves
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Charlie Cox, Michael Gambon

Brian (Caine) is an octogenarian gangster who puts together a team of old codgers to rob the Hatton Garden diamond vaults. The biggest and flashiest of the four versions so far of this story has lots of star power but a boring script, dislikeable characters and colourless direction. Pointless and disappointing.

Luis and the Aliens

Luis and the Aliens
  • 2018
  • Germany/Luxembourg
  • 1h 26min
  • U
  • Directed by: Christoph Lauenstein, Wolfgang Lauenstein
  • Cast: Callum Maloney, Dermot Magennis, Ian Coppinger

Luis (Maloney) is an 11-year-old boy obsessed with aliens, who gets visited by some shape-changing extra-terrestrial blobs. It has an attractive sheen and likeable characters, but the tone is uncertain and it’s too derivative and unsure of itself to win many admirers.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • 1h 54min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ol Parker
  • Cast: Christine Baranski, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Julie Walters, Alexa Davies, Pierce Brosnan, Jeremy Irvine, Colin Firth, Hugh Skinner, Stellan Skarsgård, Josh Dylan, Cher, Dominic Cooper, Andy García

Sequel to the feel-good ABBA musical Mamma Mia! Despite its absurdities and shoe-horning of ABBA songs, at its heart is a touching mother-daughter love story and an irresistible esprit de corps.

The More You Ignore Me

The More You Ignore Me
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: Keith English
  • Cast: Ella Hunt, Sheridan Smith, Mary Addy, Fiona Phillips, Jo Brand

Alice (Hunt) is a Blackpool teenager struggling to escape from the shadow of her mentally ill mother Gina (Smith). Debut director English fails to hit a consistent tone, and although Smith gives a charismatic performance and Brand (adapting her own novel) clearly knows what she’s talking about, it’s ultimately a bit of disappointment.

Pin Cushion

Pin Cushion
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 22min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Deborah Haywood
  • Cast: Lily Newmark, Joanna Scanlan, Loris Scarpa, Sacha Cordy-Nice

Lyn (Scanlan) is an eccentric mother who moves to a new Midlands town with her teenage daughter Iona (Newmark), but the pair’s close bond is threatened when Iona makes friends with school bully Keeley (Cordy-Nice). Despite the whimsical surface it delivers brutal truths about female experience, as well as the power of love and connection.
