Thu 13 Sep
- 1h 42min
- Directed by: Michael Curtiz
- Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid
You must remember this … Bogart being impossibly noble, Bergman torn between two lovers, Claude Rains playing both ends against the middle, devious Nazis, a fogbound airport, a piano-player tinkling that tune. A wonderful hill of beans.

Snobbish Sandra (Staunton) is disturbed to find that her husband Mike (Sessions) has been having an affair with best friend Pamela (Lawrence) but her free-spirited sister Bif (Imrie) helps her loosen up. Familiar but pleasant comedy-drama for mature audiences with a dash of daring.

Sympathetic but blackly funny biopic of disgraced American skater Tonya Harding (Robbie), who suffered violent abuse from a young age and strove to get recognition in a sport that didn’t welcome her. Robbie does affecting, impressive and Oscar-nominated work and Janney revels in viciousness as Tonya’s awful mum LaVona.

Mischievous bunny Peter (Corden) and his sisters Flopsy (Robbie), Mopsy (Debicki) and Cotton-Tail (Ridley) contend with Thomas (Gleeson), an uptight cottage garden owner. The interweaving of CGI animals with live action is flawless, Gleeson proves to have fine comedy chops and there’s a lot of slapstick, but anyone looking for Beatrix Potter will be sorely disappointed.

In 1962 Baltimore, Eliza (Hawkins) is a mute who works as a cleaner in a secret government facility alongside the chatty Zelda (Spencer); there she makes a connection with a mysterious monster (Jones). A wondrous tale of underwater love, with an apt and refreshing approach to female sexuality; from screenplay through casting, score and production, it all gels superbly.

Holly Martins has been invited to unstable, post-World War II Vienna by his old chum Lime, who is now in the grand-scale drug dealing business, only to discover that he is dead. Except, he isn't of course, and a multilayered cat and mouse scenario is triggered. So, what's so good about it? Well, you have a stirring zither score by Anton Karas, the ferris wheel and the 'cuckoo clock' speech yet possibly its greatest triumph is to cram so much wonder into so little time.
