Birdman

Birdman
  • 2014
  • US
  • 119 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Alejandro González Iñárritu
  • Cast: Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts, Amy Ryan

Riggan Thompson (Keaton) played Birdman, a popular Hollywood superhero, but that was a while ago and he's having trouble getting the second art of his career started. A stellar cast (Norton, Watts, Stone) and fluid script prop up an award-worthy turn from Keaton, all mesmerisingly photographed by Lubezki. Highly imaginative.

  • Cast: John Lithgow, Alfred Molina, Marisa Tomei

After 39 years together, NYC couple Ben (Lithgow) and George (Molina) get married, whereupon George loses his teaching job at a Catholic school and the couple have to live apart while they find a cheaper apartment. Lithgow and Molina are a joy and in spite of uncertain pacing it has all the ingredients of a modern classic.

The Theory of Everything
  • 2014
  • US/UK
  • 123 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones, Tom Prior

Stephen Hawking (Redmayne) and Jane Wilde (Jones) lock eyes at a university party, but their budding love affair is given a blow by his diagnosis of motor neurone disease. Redmayne is astonishingly good and Jones inspires sympathy and admiration, but the script is never really convincing.

Winter Sleep

Winter Sleep
  • 2014
  • Turkey
  • 196 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Nuri Bilge Ceylan
  • Cast: Haluk Bilginer, Melisa Sözen, Demet Akbag, Serhat Mustafa Kiliç

Aydin (Bilginer) is a former actor turned journalist and landowner, who runs a hotel in the Turkish mountains with his young wife (Sözen). Ceylan's latest film is an enthralling, achingly sad study of the strategies adopted by the rich to assuage guilt, and how age and isolation can poison a personality.
