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.

Sully

  • Directed by: Clint Eastwood
  • Cast: Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney

The story of pilot Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger (Hanks), who became an unassuming hero in 2009 after successfully ditching a US Airways Airbus 320 on the Hudson River. Eckhart gives strong support as co-pilot Jeff Skiles but the film belongs to Hanks, whose understated performance, with the skilful re-enactments of the crash, make for riveting drama.

  • Directed by: Chris Rock
  • Cast: Chris Rock, Rosario Dawson

Frustrated comedian-turned-film-star Andre (Rock) wants to make his mark in serious films, but his success in lowbrow action comedies dogs him until he has an antagonistic chat with reporter Chelsea (Dawson). Writer and director Rock plays a thinly disguised version of himself, but it's loose, funky, personal and surprisingly watchable.
