An American diplomat (Cunningham) and his European wife (Bejo), living in France in 1919 for the Versailles negotiations, have a pretty son (Sweet) who develops into a horribly spoiled brat. Ambitious and well-crafted but pretentious and narratively unconvincing fable from actor-turned-director Corbet.

- Directed by: Sean Foley
- Written by: Julian Barratt, Simon Farnaby
- Cast: Essie Davis, Julian Barratt, Richard McCabe, Alex Wyndham, Alannah Olivia
Washed-up actor Richard Thorncroft (Barratt) was the star of an 80s British TV series in which he was an MI5 agent with an optical lie detector who could ‘see the truth’; in the present day, a serial killer case draws him in. Endearingly silly comedy with a fully committed performance from Barratt; fans of Partridge and Garth Marenghi will appreciate it.

- Directed by: Claude Barras
- Cast: Gaspard Schlatter (voice), Sixtine Murat (voice), Paulin Jaccoud (voice)
Icare (Schlatter) is a nine year old boy who gets placed in an orphanage after the death of his alcoholic mother. Charming but profound stop-motion animated tale, skilfully adapted by Celine Sciamma (Girlhood) from Gilles Paris's novel; the kids' candid discussions about adult topics shows how much they have been through, yet it can be enjoyed by younger audiences.

- 2h 42min
- Directed by: Maren Ade
- Cast: Peter Simonischek, Sandra Hüller, Michael Wittenborn
When Winfried (Simonischek) visits his adult daughter Ines (Hüller) in Romania, he thinks that she takes life too seriously, and decides to play pranks on her. Superlative third feature from German writer-director Ade, ranging from flamboyantly lunatic comedy to a wonderfully natural, textured portrait of the parent-child relationship. Inimitable and unforgettable.
Mon 23 Oct
- 1h 51min
- Directed by: Stephen Frears
- Cast: Judi Dench, Ali Fazal, Eddie Izzard, Adeel Akhtar, Michael Gambon
When Queen Victoria (Dench) is introduced to a young man from India, Abdul Karim (Fazal), she is charmed when he prostrates himself and kisses her foot: unlikely cross-cultural friendship and Urdu lessons duly ensue. Fazal and Dench are excellent and there’s a surprisingly effective political subtext.
