The Good Liar

The Good Liar
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 49min

  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Ian McKellen, Helen Mirren, Nell Williams

Roy (McKellen) is a con man who targets wealthy widows, and when he targets Betty (Mirren) her son Steven (Tovey) becomes suspicious. It’s a blend of several genres which don’t quite fuse and is ultimately diverting but far from essential.

  • Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Cameron Seely, Angela Lansbury

The Grinch (Cumberbatch) is a grumpy, green creature who despises Christmas so much that he plots to steal it. The animation is gorgeous, the pace is breezy and Cumberbatch does a decent job with the voice, but the film is stolen by the Grinch’s adorable dog Max.

Honey Boy

Honey Boy
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Alma Har'el
  • Written by: Shia LaBeouf
  • Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Lucas Hedges, Noah Jupe

Otis (Jupe, later Hedges) is the son of a difficult father, James (LaBeouf, playing a character based on his own father), in a story that goes back and forth between the 90s and 00s. Obviously a cathartic tale for actor turned screenwriter LaBeouf, it’s indulgent, irritating and emotional but has impressive performances and memorable imagery.

It's A Wonderful Life

It's a Wonderful Life
  • 1946
  • US
  • 2h 9min
  • U
  • Directed by: Frank Capra
  • Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers

Small-town boy Stewart runs into financial difficulties and is on the brink of suicide when an elderly angel descends to earth to show him all the good his life has done for those around him. Archetypal Capra sentimentality with a superbly detailed fantasy framework and one of Stewart's most lovable performances. One to warm even the most glacial heart.

Documentary about Imelda Marcos, which initially appears to treat her with kid gloves until survivors of the Marcos dictatorship talk about the level of torture, corruption and violence. Marcos herself is a pioneer of fake news and grand delusions; the continuing support for her in the Philippines is unfathomable.

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rian Johnson
  • Cast: Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, Christopher Plummer

When mystery writer Harlan Thrombey (Plummer) is found with his throat slit, puffed-up private detective Benoit Blanc (Craig) gets on the case. A wickedly knowing, flamboyantly bitchy take on the whodunnit, with a great cast, bags of style and a splendidly outrageous comic turn from Craig. Bloody good fun.

La belle époque

La belle époque
  • 2019
  • France
  • Directed by: Nicolas Bedos
  • Cast: Daniel Auteuil, Guillaume Canet, Doria Tillier

Victor (Auteuil) is a sixtysomething cartoonist who’s kicked out by his wife Marianne (Ardant) for being boring, but he then takes his friend Antoine (Canet)’s offer to re-enact an earlier era of his life and live out a fantasy. Immaculately constructed, achingly romantic, with great performances, sparkling wit and a perfect ending.

  • Directed by: Lisa Barros D'Sa, Glenn Leyburn
  • Cast: Liam Neeson, Lesley Manville, David Wilmot

Joan (Manville) and Tom (Neeson) are a long-married couple whose contentment is shattered with Joan discovers a lump in her breast. The facts of cancer are covered in unsparing detail, but the acting makes it watchable, with Neeson investing Tom with gruff tenderness and Manville compelling as a woman who fears the worst. A modest, understated heartbreaker.
