The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book
  • 2016
  • US
  • 106 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Written by: Justin Marks (screenplay), Rudyard Kipling
  • Cast: Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken

You know the story: boy (Sethi) left in woods, adopted by wolves (Nyong'o and Esposito), mentored by panther (Kingsley), befriended by bear (Murray), hunted by tiger (Elba, terrifying). Favreau and his team successfully retool the story with stunning CGI, and a script with heart, soul and spirit. A feelgood delight.

The Witch

The Witch
  • 2015
  • US
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Robert Eggers
  • Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Kate Dickie, Ralph Ineson

A Puritan family in 17th century New England is threatened by dark forces when their baby son is stolen from their isolated farm. Gripping, dread-filled debut feature from Eggers; Dickie is superb as a mother on the edge, Taylor-Joy gives a pitch-perfect and dedicated performance as the eldest daughter and it's nerve-shredding, exquisitely crafted cinema.
