Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them
  • 2016
  • UK/US
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Written by: J.K. Rowling
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston

Newt Scamander (Redmayne), a socially-challenged animal whisperer of sorts, has to gather up the fantastic beasts which have escaped from his briefcase and are roaming 1920s New York. A suitably magical spin-off, with Rowling's screenplay skilfully balancing dark and light, and director Yates maintaining a thrilling pace and exciting spectacle.

  • 15
  • Directed by: Anne Fontaine
  • Cast: Lou de Laâge, Agata Buzek, Agata Kulesza

Mathilde (de Laâge) is a French Red Cross medic in Poland in 1945, who has to care for a group of nuns and novices who have become pregnant after being raped by Russian soldiers. An appalling plight is presented with sensitivity and restraint, and Buzek is poignant as the compassionate and relatively wordly Sister Maria.

  • US
  • 92 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Butler/Sam Fell
  • Written by: Chris Butler
  • Cast: Voices of Kodi Smit-McPhee, Anna Kendrick, Christopher Mintz-Plasse

Norman (Smit-McPhee) can communicate with the dead, which complicates his life when he's tasked with protecting his town from a centuries-old curse. A funny and stylish kids' film, but given the reanimated corpses and terrifying witch, it's worth making sure your little 'un is prepared for terror as well as laughs.

  • 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.
