- Cast: Robert Redford, Dustin Hoffman, Jason Robards, Jack Warden, Hal Holbrook, Jane Alexander, Martin Balsam
Released in 1976 during the Carter-Ford presidential campaign, Pakula's political thriller traces the real-life story of journalists Bob Woodward (Redford) and Carl Bernstein (Hoffman) as they uncover an attempted crime in Washington DC's Watergate Complex that led to the Watergate Scandal and Nixon's resignation. A classic of the much abused crusader journalist genre.

- Written by: Dean Craig
- Cast: Loretta Devine, Peter Dinklage, Danny Glover, Regina Hall, Martin Lawrence, James Marsden, Tracy Morgan, Chris Rock, Zoe Saldana, Columbus Short, Luke Wilson
A scene-by-scene remake of 2007's ultra-lame Frank Oz comedy 'Death at a Funeral', this is a facile, crude, unloved sub-Richard Curtis farce in which a family's attempts at mourning are repeatedly interrupted.

- Written by: Saroo Brierley, Luke Davies
- Cast: Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, David Wenham, Nicole Kidman
The true story of Saroo Brierley, who aged five is separated from his mother and family in India, declared lost and adopted by an Australian couple, only to track his family down years later using Google Earth. Hugely emotional, remarkably assured debut from Davis, with fine performances.

- 96 min
- 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.

- 117 min
- Directed by: Lone Scherfig
- Cast: Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy
London, 1940: fledgling screenwriter Catrin Cole (Arterton) joins the Ministry of Information’s Film Division and starts working on a propaganda movie. Scherfig wraps the war in a cosy cloak of nostalgia in a way that dulls moments of high anxiety, and despite a fine ensemble it’s all too muffled and mild-mannered.
