Moonlight
  • 2016
  • US

  • Directed by: Barry Jenkins
  • Cast: Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, Trevante Rhodes, Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monáe, Naomie Harris

The story of a young black man growing up, struggling with his sexuality and neglected by his drug-addicted mother. Astutely judged and beautifully humane sophomore feature from Jenkins, with sublime work from the three actors playing the main character (Hibbert, Sanders, Rhodes) and fine support from Ali, Harris and Monáe. Terrific.

Trespass Against Us

Trespass Against Us
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 99 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adam Smith
  • Cast: Michael Fassbender, Brendan Gleeson, Lyndsey Marshal, Rory Kinnear

Chad (Fassbender) is a cocksure criminal from a tight-knit traveller family, trying to get from under the thumb of his ignorant and paranoid father Colby (Gleeson). Fassbender is as magnetic as ever but the gang, supposed to be fearsome, is beyond shambolic, and Kinnear’s incompetent copper isn’t exactly a worthy rival.
