All is True

All is True
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 41min
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Lolita Chakrabarti, Jack Colgrave Hirst

William Shakespeare (Branagh) comes back to Stratford to find his family estranged from him. Branagh and screenwriter Elton search for the man behind the myth, but lose sight of the genius; there’s no sense of the writer’s intelligence or empathy and only McKellen as the Earl of Southampton brings any life to the proceedings.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody
  • 2018
  • UK/USA
  • 1h 31min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, Mike Myers

The Freddie Mercury story. Malek as Mercury does a great job, with a passionate and impressive performance, but despite the recreation of momentous performances it’s a disappointingly tame affair, with a by-the-numbers screenplay and a bland lack of insight into Mercury’s heritage or sexuality.

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Can You Ever Forgive Me?
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 46min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Marielle Heller
  • Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Richard E. Grant, Dolly Wells

Lee Israel (McCarthy) is a writer facing financial difficulties who starts forging letters from famous writers as a way to earn money. McCarthy gives one of her best performances as the stubborn Lee, and Grant is excellent as her buddy Jack. Deviously funny and deeply moving.

Finding Nemo

Finding Nemo
  • 2003
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • U
  • Directed by: Andrew Stanton
  • Cast: Albert Brooks, Ellen DeGeneres, Alexander Gould

Pixar's delightful tale of a little fish and his daddy's attempts to find him when he gets scooped out of the water by a human. Clever, funny and better than The Little Mermaid (just).

Green Book

Green Book
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • Directed by: Peter Farrelly
  • Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini

Don Shirley (Ali), virtuoso pianist, is chauffeured around the American South in 1962 by his Italian-American driver Tony (Mortensen), and much learning ensues. It’s beautifully made and very worthy, but far too gentle and broad to be effective; Tony, rather than Don, is the heart of the story and it lacks bite.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Dean DeBlois
  • Cast: Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett, Craig Ferguson, Jonah Hill, Kit Harington, Justin Rupple, Kristen Wiig, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, F. Murray Abraham, Gerard Butler

Hiccup (voiced by Baruchel) is now a chief with growing responsibilities, while Toothless the dragon is in love; but then dragon hunter Grimmel (Abraham) is determined to spoil people’s fun. The franchise is running out of steam; there’s too much going on and the central bond is obscured.

If Beale Street Could Talk

If Beale Street Could Talk
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Barry Jenkins
  • Cast: KiKi Layne, Stephan James, Regina King

Tish (Layne) and Fonny (James) are friends since childhood who grow up to realise that they’re soulmates, but then Fonny gets arrested and charged with rape. Jenkins’s follow-up to Moonlight is an enchanting, heartbreaking love story, adapted from James Baldwin’s novel. A great film with anger in its tender heart.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
  • 2018
  • UK/US

  • PG
  • Directed by: Ol Parker
  • Cast: Christine Baranski, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Julie Walters, Alexa Davies, Pierce Brosnan, Jeremy Irvine, Colin Firth, Hugh Skinner, Stellan Skarsgård, Josh Dylan, Cher, Dominic Cooper, Andy García

Sequel to the feel-good ABBA musical Mamma Mia! Despite its absurdities and shoe-horning of ABBA songs, at its heart is a touching mother-daughter love story and an irresistible esprit de corps.

  • 1h 48min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Phyllida Lloyd

A bride-to-be tries to find out the identity of her real father in the lead up to her wedding on a Greek island. Faithful film adaptation of Broadway and West End ABBA song musical mega hit with all star cast.

Mary Queen of Scots

Mary Queen of Scots
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • 2h 4min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Josie Rourke
  • Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Margot Robbie, Jack Lowden, David Tennant, Martin Compston, Joe Alwyn, Brendan Coyle, Guy Pearce

Mary Stuart (Ronan) and Elizabeth (Robbie) would like to be sisters but political rivalry drives them apart. Ronan gives a sophisticated performance and Robbie as Elizabeth is a blend of nervous uncertainty and confident outrage. Over the top, perhaps, but its ridiculousness hits a raw nerve in the current political climate, where women politicians are attacked for dancing.

A Private War

A Private War
  • 2018
  • UK / US
  • 1h 50min
  • Directed by: Matthew Heineman
  • Cast: Rosamund Pike, Jamie Dornan, Tom Hollander, Stanley Tucci

The story of the last years of Marie Colvin (Pike), celebrated war correspondent. Pike’s intrinsic frostiness is perfect for Colvin’s determination, resourcefulness and arrogance, and while Dornan, Hollander and Tucci are all good as (respectively) photographer, editor and lover, it’s Pike’s show, and a mesmerising, discomforting and inspiring one.
