Catch Me Daddy

Catch Me Daddy
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 107 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Daniel Wolfe
  • Written by: Daniel Wolfe, Matthew Wolfe
  • Cast: Sabeena Jameen Ahmed, Conor McCarron, Gary Lewis

Teenage Laila (Ahmed) and her boyfriend Aaron (McCarron) take sanctuary on the Yorkshire Moors from her disapproving family. Atmospheric and grimly impressive debut feature from music video director Wolfe and his co-writer brother; it has its flaws (including some one-dimensional characters) but otherwise, full of promise.

Cinderella

Cinderella

  • US/UK
  • U
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Lily James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Stellan Skarsgård, Nonso Anozie, Derek Jacobi, Hayley Atwell, Ben Chaplin

Cinderella (James) loses her parents and is left with stepmother Lady Tremaine (Blanchett) and cruel stepsisters (McShera and Grainger); but soon enough, she's off to the ball. Weitz's crafty script has enough surreal touches to keep you interested and the result, while hardly a new take on the story, is still a pleasant surprise.

  • Directed by: Peter Strickland
  • Cast: Sidse Babett Knudsen, Chiara D'Anna, Monica Swinn

Cynthia (Knudsen) and Evelyn (D'Anna) are lovers who share a passion for the collection and study of winged insects, but their sadomasochistic mistress-servant relationship is threatened by Evelyn's insatiable appetites. The sensual imagery and tortured relationship are tempered by sensitive performances and surprisingly irreverent humour.

Paddington

Paddington
  • 2014

  • 95 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw (voice), Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins

The story of an illegal immigrant from Peru and his efforts to be integrated into British society. He's a bear, by the way. Whishaw imbues the CGI Paddington with immense charm, the rest of the cast are excellent and the exuberant direction and smart, knowing script make for a genuine delight.

  • Cast: Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Judi Dench

This sequel to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (yes, you may have guessed) has an ensemble cast, and follows the expansionist dreams of Sonny. He has his eye on a second property, but there are still predicaments to resolve in his first.

Lucile Angellier (Williams) is married and lives in a village in occupied France in the 1940s; when handsome young German officer Bruno von Falk (Schoenaerts) arrives, romance blossoms. Adapted from Irène Némirovsky's novellas, it suffers from wayward pacing but Williams is as honest and affecting as ever. Pack a hanky.

The Tale of The Princess Kaguya
  • 2013
  • Japan
  • U
  • Directed by: Isao Takahata

Kaguya (voiced by Moretz in the English dub) is magically born to a bamboo cutter (Caan) and his wife (Steenburgen), but she's devastated when he moves to the city so that she can become a princess. Enchanting, admirable fable about the damaging effects of stereotypes; Kaguya's father is not cruel, just terribly misguided.
