1917

1917
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Sam Mendes
  • Cast: George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Claire Duburcq, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch

Lance Corporals Schofield (MacKay) and Blake (Chapman) are given the job of hand-delivering a message to another unit, across the mud and misery of the trenches. It suffers from simplistic dialogue and flat characterisation, but it’s visually impressive and a respectable, heartfelt tribute to the sacrifice of WWI.

  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Sanders
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Dan Stevens, Omar Sy, Karen Gillan, Bradley Whitford, Colin Woodell

Buck is a dog who is kidnapped in California and then has adventures all over the north, including with loner John Thornton (Ford). Big-hearted adaptation of Jack London’s classic 1903 novella, with skilful CGI and fine action sequences and a tear-jerking turn from Ford as both actor and narrator.

Custody

Custody
  • 2017
  • France
  • 1h 34min
  • Directed by: Xavier Legrand
  • Written by: Xavier Legrand
  • Cast: Léa Drucker, Denis Ménochet, Thomas Gioria

Julien (Gioria) is eleven years old and his parents are splitting up. Against his will, he has to spend alternate weekends with his hated father Antoine (Ménochet). Legrand tackles the issue of domestic abuse with great skill; it’s often profoundly distressing, but that’s precisely the point.

Dolittle

Dolittle
  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stephen Gaghan
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Antonio Banderas, Michael Sheen, Emma Thompson, Rami Malek, John Cena, Kumail Nanjiani, Octavia Spencer, Tom Holland, Craig Robinson, Ralph Fiennes, Selena Gomez, Marion Cotillard

Dr Dolittle (Downey) is grieving the death of his wife Lily when a young boy (Collett) and Lady Rose (Laniado) both come to ask him for help. The plot is a barely connected bunch of scenes, action sequences are hinted at but unrealised. The worst adaptation of Hugh Lofting’s stories to date: all this talent wasted in a big furry disappointment.

Emma

Emma
  • 2020
  • UK
  • PG
  • Directed by: Autumn de Wilde
  • Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Josh O'Connor, Gemma Whelan

Emma (Taylor-Joy) is a self-important matchmaker blinded by snobbery and youthful hubris. It’s in keeping with the vogue for complex, unapologetic heroines but the comedy is rather hit and miss and it looks great. Taylor-Joy’s alert performance makes Emma her own.

Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog
  • 2020
  • US / Japan
  • Directed by: Jeff Fowler
  • Cast: James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, Jim Carrey, Tika Sumpter

Sonic (Schwartz) finds himself alone on Earth, on the run from the authorities, with villain Dr Robotnik (Carrey) also in pursuit. A derivative script and a rather tired performance from Carrey aside, it’s got disarming charm and cheek and Sonic is a cutely cartoonish hero.
