Darkest Hour

Darkest Hour
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 54min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Joe Wright
  • Cast: Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Ben Mendlesohn, Ronald Pickup

May 1940: the situation in Europe is worsening, and Britain needs a new prime minister. The latest in a very long line of recent Churchill performances is by far the best: Oldman is virtually unrecognisable and attacks the part with relish, with Scott Thomas excellent as his wife Clemmie. It may veer into hero worship but it’s a confidently handled crowdpleaser.

Lady Bird

  • Directed by: Greta Gerwig
  • Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Odeya Rush, Kathryn Newton

Christine (Ronan) is a 17-year-old from Sacramento, dreaming of the life that awaits her while having to deal with her hyper-critical mother. Gerwig’s solo directorial debut is a sure-footed charmer, wise, witty and breezing along with sunny optimism and an acute understanding of human nature.

The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou

The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou
  • 2005
  • US
  • 1h 58min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Wes Anderson
  • Written by: Wes Anderson, Noah Baumbach
  • Cast: Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Cate Blanchett, Anjelica Huston, Willem Dafoe, Seu Jorge, Jeff Goldblum, Michael Gambon, Bud Cort

Anderson's fourth film is part high seas adventure, part film industry satire, part existential meditation on the meaning of relationships. It is consistently clever and hilarious, shifting from the light-hearted to the surreal, to scenes of real depth with the kind of ease we've come to expect from the Texan director. Bill Murray heads an eccentric, often brilliant cast, as ageing oceanographer and filmmaker Steve Zissou. No one likes his films any more and his life is falling apart around him. So he rallies a crew around him that includes his estranged wife (Huston), a journalist (Blanchett), and a man who may or may not be his son (Wilson) and takes one last fated revenge expedition in search for the mythical Jaguar Shark.

Reynolds Woodcock (Day Lewis) is a haute couture dressmaker in 50s London; when he meets Alma (Krieps), and she becomes his muse and then his lover, the carefully crafted life he has made with his sister (Manville) is turned upside down. A multi-layered, expertly observed study of desire and control, with masterful work from Anderson and his cast.

  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Guillermo del Toro
  • Cast: Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones, Lauren Lee Smith, Michael Stuhlbarg, Octavia Spencer

In 1962 Baltimore, Eliza (Hawkins) is a mute who works as a cleaner in a secret government facility alongside the chatty Zelda (Spencer); there she makes a connection with a mysterious monster (Jones). A wondrous tale of underwater love, with an apt and refreshing approach to female sexuality; from screenplay through casting, score and production, it all gels superbly.

The Square

The Square
  • 2017
  • Sweden / Germany / France / Denmark
  • 2h 22min
  • Directed by: Ruben Östlund
  • Cast: Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss, Dominic West,

Christian (Bang), the curator of a modern art museum, is scammed and robbed of his wallet, phone and cufflinks, and as a result tracks his phone and leaves threatening letters where he thinks it might be. At its best it mixes sly, Swiftian satire with an almost Ballardian view of human nature, but it’s sprawling and overstuffed.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
  • 2017
  • UK / US
  • 1h 55min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Martin McDonagh
  • Cast: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage

Exasperated by the police’s failure to catch her daughter’s murderer, Mildred Hayes (McDormand) buys ad space on the titular billboards to tear a strip off the police chief (Harrelson). McDonagh’s latest delicately balances the lingering pain of the crime itself with dark comedy, and a superb cast is topped by a magnificent performance from McDormand.
