Amy
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Asif Kapadia

Documentary on Amy Winehouse, charting her career from her early days to superstar status and subsequent fall. Kapadai creates an incredibly intimate look at the singer, with clips of her lighter side underlining the gravity of her loss. Punchy, provocative and just plain sad.

The Bad Education Movie

The Bad Education Movie
  • 2015

  • 90 min

  • Directed by: Elliot Hegarty
  • Cast: Jack Whitehall, Mathew Horne, Sarah Solemani, Harry Enfield

In this big-screen adaptation of the sitcom, disastrous teacher Alfie Wickers (Whitehall) takes his suspiciously small class on a school trip to Cornwall. A confusing and offensive mess, likely to appeal only to Whitehall completists interested in seeing prosthetic recreations of his balls on multiple occasions.

Best of Enemies

Best of Enemies
  • 2015
  • US
  • 87 min
  • Directed by: Robert Gordon/Morgan Neville
  • Cast: John Lithgow, Kelsey Grammer, Dick Cavett

A fascinating account of the televised debates of 1968 that became legendary between the liberal Gore Vidal and the conservative William F Buckley Jr. Using a combination of extensive archive footage and a line-up of insightful talking heads, this superbly assembled doc provides plenty of context and background knowledge, and though in watching the modern day clips, you keenly feel the loss of both Vidal and Buckley, this riveting, impressively crafted and thought-provoking film at least provides a fitting tribute.

Charlotte's Web
  • 2006
  • USA
  • 97 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Gary Winick
  • Cast: Dakota Fanning, voices of Julia Roberts, Sam Shepherd, Steve Buscemi

Chirpy tot Fern (Fanning) rescues Wilbur the pig from a cruel farmyard fate for lovable arachnid Charlotte to eventually save the day in a bittersweet finale that touches on practical matters of life and death. Somewhere between the cutesy 'Babe' and Orwell's political 'Animal Farm' it should draw in children and nostalgic adults alike.

  • Directed by: Pete Docter
  • Cast: Kaitlyn Dias, Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Phyllis Smith

Riley (Dias) is an 11 year old girl whose family is moving from Minnesota to San Francisco; her troubled mind is represented as a factory hub commanded by Joy (Poehler), Fear (Hader), Sadness (Smith), Disgust (Kaling) and Anger (Black). Delightful, poignant and hysterically funny coming-of-age story from Pixar.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
  • 2015
  • US
  • 116 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Guy Ritchie
  • Cast: Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, Hugh Grant

This stylish rendition of the 60s spy series suffers from a vague and clunky script, but is somewhat redeemed by the skilful casting of Cavill and Hammer. Grant has enormous fun as the shadowy controller Waverly, and there's one incredible set piece you don't want to miss.

  • US
  • 125 min

  • Cast: Amy Schumer, Tilda Swinton, Bill Hader, John Cena, Brie Larson, Colin Quinn

Journalist Amy (Schumer) is assigned by her editor (Swinton) to write a feature on sports doctor Aaron (Hader); she sleeps with him, then is boggled when he asks for a second date. The drama is sometimes forced, but Schumer's wit, honesty and edginess make her a standout protagonist, and the men too are refreshingly well-written.
