Borg vs McEnroe

Borg/McEnroe
  • 2017
  • Sweden/Denmark/Finland
  • 1h 40min
  • Directed by: Janus Metz
  • Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Stellan Skarsgård, David Bamber

Spot-on performances from Shia LaBeouf and Sverrir Gudnason power this story of a classic sporting rivalry. Flashbacks to pushy parents in the case of McEnroe, and unsupportive ones with Borg are relied on a bit too heavily, as are the usual sports movie clichés, but the match itself is suspenseful and exhilarating to watch, despite knowing the outcome.

Daphne

Daphne
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 1h 30min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Peter Mackie Burns
  • Written by: Nico Mesinga
  • Cast: Emily Beecham, Geraldine James, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor

Daphne (Beecham) is a wisecracking 31-year-old who thinks she knows it all before she witnesses something which knocks her for six. The script could be punchier and James is wasted as Daphne’s mum, but Burns’s narrative debut benefits from Beecham’s charismatic performance: a star in the making.

God's Own Country

God's Own Country
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 44min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Francis Lee
  • Written by: Francis Lee
  • Cast: Josh O'Connor, Alec Secareanu, Gemma Jones

Johnny (O’Connor) is a young Yorkshireman living with his sour grandmother (Jones) and disgruntled father (Hart), whose life is turned upside-down by the arrival of Romanian migrant Ghoerghe (Secareanu). Fluid photography and achingly honest performances make for a transformative drama about the possibility of a better life.

Insyriated

Insyriated
  • 2017
  • Belgium
  • 1h 25min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Philippe Van Leeuw
  • Cast: Hiam Abbass, Diamand Bou Abboud, Juliette Navis

Character-led drama set against the background of war-battered Damascus. Skilfully made, and the lead actresses in particular do raw but heartfelt work, but it’s all very manipulative and for all its sincerity and technical achievement, you’re left with not much more than a feeling of how lucky you are.

mother!

Mother!
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 55min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Darren Aronofsky
  • Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris

The wife (Lawrence) of a poet (Bardem) live in a vast house in the middle of nowhere, until their life is interrupted by a surgeon (Harris), his wife (Pfeiffer) and their violent sons. Lawrence is astonishing, but other than that it’s an infuriating exercise in noisy style over substance.

On Body and Soul

On Body and Soul
  • 2017
  • 1h 56min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Ildikó Enyedi
  • Cast: Géza Morcsányi, Alexandra Borbély, Zoltán Schneider

An unusual love story set in the everyday world, based around the duality of sleeping and waking, mind and matter. As the title suggests, it's a film that revels as much in the physical as the spiritual. One minute, we're in dreamland, the next we're watching a graphic shot of a cow being dismembered in the slaughterhouse (vegetarians be warned). David Lynch, perhaps, would approve.

Victoria & Abdul

Victoria and Abdul
  • 2017
  • UK/US
  • 1h 51min
  • PG
  • 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.

Wind River

Wind River
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 47min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Taylor Sheridan
  • Cast: Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Kelsey Asbille

Cory Lambert (Renner) is a wildlife officer used to tracking predators, who teams up with rookie FBI agent Jane Banner (Olsen) to solve a murder in Wind River Indian Reservation. For all the sensitive handling of Native American issues, the dialogue is hokey, the Olsen character is underwritten and there’s too much focus on Renner’s character.
