American Honey

American Honey
  • 2016
  • UK, US
  • 162 min
  • Directed by: Andrea Arnold
  • Cast: Sasha Lane, Shia LaBeouf, Riley Keough

When 18-year-old Star (Lane) meets Jake (LaBeouf, deliciously gross) and his crew of magazine sellers, all ruled over the straight-talking Krystal (Keough), she joins them on an epic road trip across America. A spine-tingling, uplifting tale of youth and rebellion from Arnold, with a pumping soundtrack and impressive performances.

Bridget Jones's Baby

Bridget Jones's Baby
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 123 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sharon Maguire
  • Cast: RenĂ©e 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.

The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the Train
  • 2016
  • US
  • 112 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Tate Taylor
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Haley Bennett, Justin Theroux

Rachel (Blunt) spies on people from her commute to work, including ice queen Megan (Bennett) and her neighbour Anna (Ferguson). Then Megan disappears. Glossy but strangely unsuspenseful thriller which sticks too close to the book to be unpredictable, but there are refreshingly many decent roles for women, and Blunt is raw and committed as the unglamorous, alcoholic heroine.

  • USA
  • 115 min

  • Directed by: Tom Ford

  • Cast: Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Shannon

Susan (Adams) is a successful but bored LA gallery owner who is sent the manuscript of a book by her ex Edward (Gyllenhall), the titular Nocturnal Animals, which we see unfolding along with Susan's story. Ambitious, ravishingly shot tale exploring the engrossing impact of fiction; tense, intriguing and strange.

Royal Ballet: The Nutcracker

Royal Ballet: The Nutcracker
  • 2016

Tchaikovsky's music brings to life this Christmas favourite in which the toys come to life (and about 200 years before Toy Story at that).

Storks

Storks
  • 2016
  • US
  • 89 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Nicholas Stoller, Doug Sweetland
  • Written by: Nicholas Stoller
  • Cast: Andy Samberg, Katie Crown, Kelsey Grammer, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Jennifer Aniston, Ty Burrell, Danny Trejo, Stephen Kramer Glickman

Storks used to deliver babies, but now they run an Amazon-style delivery service; then ambitious stork Junior (Samberg) and colleague Tulip (Crown) have to deliver an actual baby. Colourful animation and some amusing voice work can't fix the gigantic plot holes, which will leave both parents and kids scratching their heads.

A Street Cat Named Bob

A Street Cat Named Bob
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Roger Spottiswoode
  • Cast: Luke Treadaway, Ruta Gedmintas, Joanne Froggatt, Anthony Head

James (Treadaway) is a homeless heroin addict who gets onto a support programme, which offers him a flat on condition he stick to the rules. Enter the titular cat, which forces James to care for something else. Based on a true story; Treadaway is very watchable, and Bob the cat is (largely) played by himself. Gritty and heartwarming.
