- 1h 49min
- Directed by: Marielle Heller
- Cast: Matthew Rhys, Tom Hanks, Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Cooper
Lloyd Vogel (Rhys) is a journalist assigned to interview beloved television host Fred Rogers (Hanks), arriving with cynicism but finding himself charmed and disarmed by Rogers’ unexpected complexity. Audiences expecting a treacly tearjerker will be surprised; Heller makes bold choices, with Rhys conveying bitter, curdled anger and Hanks masterfully portraying Rogers’ depth and hard-working decency.

- Cast: Charlize Theron, Margot Robbie, Nicole Kidman, John Lithgow
The story of the Roger Ailes sexual harassment scandal at Fox News. It favours snappiness rather than a serious examination of the crimes, but Theron is excellent as Megyn Kelly and Kidman and Robbie are also compelling. Slick, glossy and entertaining, but it could have used more sensitivity and anger.

- Cast: Robert Pattinson, Willem Dafoe
Ephraim (Pattinson) and Tom (Dafoe) are two lighthouse keepers in 19th century Maine who find that the isolation is getting to them. A slow-burn psychological thriller with rich use of salty period language and unexpected shards of black comedy, filmed in shadowy monochrome: the result is somewhere between FW Murnau and Buster Keaton.
Tue 10 Mar
- 1h 59min
- Directed by: Armando Iannucci
- Cast: Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Aneurin Barnard, Ben Whishaw, Morfydd Clark, Peter Capaldi, Gwendoline Christie, Benedict Wong, Paul Whitehouse, Daisy May Cooper
David (Patel) is an ever-optimistic orphan who’s given shelter by poor but worthy Mr Micawber (Capaldi). Iannucci brings out the lighter side of Dickens, and the result is a sprightly, breezy and colourful crack at a classic, with a fabulous supporting cast and a perfect turn by Patel as the likeable hero.

- Directed by: Makoto Shinkai
- Cast: Kotaro Daigo, Nana Mori, Chieko Baishô
Hodaka (Daigo), a 16-year-old runaway, arrives in Tokyo and meets orphaned Hina (Mori), who seems to have special powers. An animated tale of adolescent romance set in a beautifully rendered Tokyo, it’s visually resplendent, even if it’s not quite up to director Shinkai’s sublime 2016 Your Name.
