Documentary about Aretha Franklin’s 1972 concert at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Watts, Los Angeles, shot at the time by Sydney Pollack and realised by Alan Elliott. Digital technology has at last made it possible to sync the sound recording with the footage: revel in Aretha at the height of her power, with an exuberant choir, an engaged congregation and celebrity guests Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts.

When 12-year-old orphan Sam (Gilman) convinces Suzy (Hayward) to run away with him, her parents (Murray, McDormand), the local scoutmaster (Norton), sheriff (Willis) and Social Services (Swinton) are soon in pursuit. Anderson's movie will delight his fans; others may consider it overlong, whimsical and emotionally lightweight.

- Cast: Bill Nighy, Jenny Agutter, Alice Lowe
Alan (Nighy) is a fastidious widower who joins his son Peter (Riley) at the seaside on family business. Fine performances, including an ever-excellent one from Nighy, can’t quite breathe life into Hunter’s Wes Anderson-ish mannerisms, in this gently melancholic but too studied comedy drama.
