42nd Street

42nd Street
  • 1933
  • US
  • 1h 29min
  • U
  • Directed by: Lloyd Bacon
  • Cast: Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell, Ginger Rogers

‘Come and meet those dancing feet, on the avenue I’m taking you to – 42nd Street.’ One of the brightest, toe-tapping backstage musical triumphs from Depression era Hollywood, 42nd Street provided a major stepping stone in the career of twenty-two-year-old Ginger Rogers. Ruby Keeler is the chorus girl who steps in to replace an ailing leading lady and emerges a shiny new Broadway star but Rogers steals all her scenes as wise-cracking, gold-digging chorus girl Anytime Annie. Eye-popping choreography from Busby Berkeley is matched by an unforgettable score that includes ‘Shuffle off to Buffalo’, ‘You’re Getting to be a Habit with Me’ and the glorious title track. Part of the Glasgow Film Festival

  • 15
  • Directed by: Michael Showalter
  • Cast: Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter, Ray Romano

Culture clash comedy written by real life couple Emily V Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani. It plays out with charming, sometimes toe-curling honesty and an acknowledgement of how complicated life can get when expectations weigh heavy and tradition unceremoniously intervenes.

Dunkirk

Dunkirk
  • 2017
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Written by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles

Survival story set during the battle of Dunkirk in WWII. The younger cast members acquit themselves admirably, including pop star Harry Styles; and, in its uncomfortable depiction of frightened men looking to save their own skin, this is far from straightforwardly patriotic fare. As he delivers non-stop visual audacity, once again Nolan shows himself to be a master of pure cinema.

A Ghost Story

A Ghost Story
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 27min
  • Directed by: David Lowery
  • Cast: Rooney Mara, Sonia Acevedo, Casey Affleck, Carlos Bermudez

C (Affleck) and M (Mara) are a couple; when C is killed in a car crash, he returns as a ghost to make contact with M. Lowery manages to reanimate the corny old trope of the ghost under a bedsheet, creating a story about grief and a captivating reflection on the enormity of mankind’s existence.

Napping Princess

Napping Princess
  • 2017
  • Japan
  • 1h 51min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Kenji Kamiyama
  • Cast: Mitsuki Takahata, Shinnosuke Mitsuhima

When schoolgirl Kokone (Takahata) falls asleep, she assumes the identity of princess Enshen in a futuristic heartland where cars are an essential commodity. Bolder and brainier than its title suggests, this striking anime is an enjoyable adventure and a thoughtful allegory about the importance of following your dreams.

The Odyssey

The Odyssey
  • 2016
  • France
  • 2h 2min
  • Directed by: Jérôme Salle
  • Cast: Lambert Wilson, Pierre Niney, Audrey Tautou

Biopic of underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau (Wilson), focusing on his strained relationship with his son. It looks fantastic, but becomes bogged down in soap opera conventions and biopic cliché, with characters such as Cousteau’s long-suffering wife Simone (Tautou) pushed to the sidelines.
