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.

Downsizing

Downsizing
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 15min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Alexander Payne
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis

When a Norwegian institute develops a successful process of human miniaturisation, people flock to take part so as to minimise the impact of humans on the planet. Mild-mannered comedy and gentle romance which looks beautiful but is sentimental and meandering.

Paddington 2

Paddington 2
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Imelda Staunton

Paddington (Whishaw) falls foul of a dastardly scheme to steal the key to a hidden fortune. The sequel to the wildly successful first film is implausibly even better, with spiffing action pieces, seemingly throwaway gags paying rich dividends later, and splendid performances from all, with Grant brilliant as the has-been thespian villain. Joyful stuff.

The Post

The Post
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 56min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Sarah Paulson

The story of how the Washington Post, led by its publisher Katherine Graham (Streep) and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), got the chance to print devastating revelations about US involvement in Vietnam. An old-fashioned Hollywood showstopper with a stellar supporting cast, and sizeable if predictable performances from the leads.

Royal Opera House: Rigoletto

Royal Opera House: Rigoletto

The Son of Bigfoot

The Son of Bigfoot
  • 2017
  • Belgium
  • 1h 32min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jeremy Degruson/Ben Stassen
  • Cast: Pappy Faulkner, Christopher L Parson, Cinda Adams, Bob Barlen, Cal Brunker

Adam (Faulkner) is an Oregon teenager with an absent father and concerns about his own big feet and hirsute-ness; it turns out that his father is Bigfoot. It gets bogged down in the middle section but the disparagement of male vanity is amusing, and it has enough above-par character and background animation to stand out from the crowd.

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.

Walk with Me

Walk with Me
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 28min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Marc J Francis, Max Pugh

Documentary about the Plum Village monastic community in France, founded by Zen Master Thích Nhất Hạnh. Some may find the lack of story or explanation exasperating, but the overall approach is to lead the viewer to the point of understanding without preaching. It’s a thoughtful and persuasive invitation to a world of meditation.
