Ballerina

Ballerina
  • 2016
  • France / Canada
  • 89 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Eric Summer / Éric Warin
  • Cast: Voices of Dane DeHaan, Elle Fanning, Maddie Ziegler

Orphaned Félicie (Fanning) strives to reach her dream of performing ballet at the Grand Opera House, with the help of mentor Odette (Jepsen). A ballet version of The Karate Kid, it looks nice but the soundtrack is a mish-mash and the story is formulaic and lacks comic zing.

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad

Belle (Watson) is forced to live with a Beast (Stevens) in this live-action retelling of the 1991 blockbuster. Watson is winsome but feisty, Evans as Gaston is splendid of voice and hilariously odious, McGregor brings much joie de vivre to ‘Be Our Guest’, and it’s an enchantingly realised delight.

The Boss Baby

The Boss Baby
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 97 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Tom McGrath
  • Written by: Marla Frazee/Michael McCullers
  • Cast: Miles Christopher Bakshi, Alec Baldwin, Tobey Maguire, Steve Buscemi

The Boss Baby (Baldwin) is a tot with the mannerisms of a ruthless corporate tycoon, who upsets seven-year-old Tim (Bakshi). The frantic visual style and crude slapstick overwrite the charm of the original story by Marla Frazee, and there’s not much for audiences to take to their hearts.

Fast & Furious 8

Fast and Furious 8
  • 2017
  • US
  • 136 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: F. Gary Gray
  • Cast: Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky, Kurt Russell, Charlize Theron, Scott Eastwood, Helen Mirren

Cyber-terrorist Cypher (Theron) pits rogue racer Dom (Diesel) against his fellow petrolheads, including wife Letty (Rodriguez). Baffling and inconsequential story aside, it’s all shamelessly about car-based action, and although human doorstop Diesel isn’t up to the story’s limited emotional demands, Johnson and Statham make up for it with some grade-A squabbling.

The Good Lie

The Good Lie
  • 2014
  • US/Kenya/India
  • 110 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Philippe Falardeau
  • Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal, Corey Stoll, Sarah Baker, Kuoth Wiel

A group of Sudanese orphans escape the horror of the civil war by walking 800-odd miles to a refugee camp; years later, they are relocated to the USA. Witherspoon gives generous support but the central players (chiefly Oceng, Duany and Jal) are charismatic and moving, as are the children who play their younger selves.

Royal Shakespeare Company: Julius Caesar

Royal Shakespeare Company: Julius Caesar
  • 2017
  • UK

  • Directed by: Angus Jackson
  • Cast: Andrew Woodall, Alex Waldmann, Jon Tarcy, James Corrigan

Angus Jackson directs Shakespeare’s epic political tragedy, as the race to claim the empire spirals out of control.

The Sense of an Ending

The Sense of an Ending
  • 2017
  • US
  • 108 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ritesh Batra
  • Cast: Jim Broadbent, Harriet Walter, Michelle Dockery, Emily Mortimer

Tony Webster (Broadbent) is a grumpy old git who’s on good terms with his ex wife (Walter); when he’s bequeathed the diary of an old friend, he is prompted to relive his schooldays. This adaptation of a Julian Barnes novel feels hokey and safe, although it has a nice cast and the scenes between Broadbent and Walter are among the few highlights.

Sing Street

Sing Street
  • 2016
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: John Carney
  • Cast: Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Lucy Boynton, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Aidan Gillen

Fifteen year old Dubliner, Cosmo (Walsh-Peelo), moves from a posh school to a terrifying inner city institution, where in order to deter bullies and attract aspiring model Raphina (Boynton), he starts a band. A little cloying, but overall a funny, cheering sweetly optimistic romance with wit, character and grit.

Their Finest

Their Finest
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 117 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Lone Scherfig
  • Cast: Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy

London, 1940: fledgling screenwriter Catrin Cole (Arterton) joins the Ministry of Information’s Film Division and starts working on a propaganda movie. Scherfig wraps the war in a cosy cloak of nostalgia in a way that dulls moments of high anxiety, and despite a fine ensemble it’s all too muffled and mild-mannered.
