Cinderella (James) loses her parents and is left with stepmother Lady Tremaine (Blanchett) and cruel stepsisters (McShera and Grainger); but soon enough, she's off to the ball. Weitz's crafty script has enough surreal touches to keep you interested and the result, while hardly a new take on the story, is still a pleasant surprise.

  • Directed by: Brett Morgen
  • Written by: Brett Morgen
  • Cast: Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love, Krist Novoselic

Documentary about the Nirvana frontman, mixing home movie footage, music videos, talking heads of his nearest and dearest and animated drawings from his sketchbooks. Full of insight, imagination and energy, but the furious collaging is sometimes exhausting; with fewer bells and whistles it would have had even more impact.

A Little Chaos
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 116 min

Sabine (Winslet), a widowed landscape gardener in 1682 Paris, is commissioned to work on the gardens of Versailles, but her friendship with the head gardener (Schoenaerts) provokes the fury of his scheming wife (McCrory). Crowd-pleasing period drama; what it lacks in historical accuracy it makes up for with fine performances, an engaging story and strong direction from Rickman.

  • Cast: Zsófia Psotta, Sándor Zsótér, Lili Horváth

Hagen, a mongrel dog, is abandoned by the father of his teenage owner (Psotta, terrific); he quickly learns street smarts and is ultimately driven to lead a rebellion against the humans. Arresting, Hungarian drama with extraordinary animal choreography, posing hard questions about how people treat animals – and other people. Thrilling stuff.

  • Directed by: Simon Curtis
  • Cast: Helen Mirren, Andrew Garfield, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Brühl
