Frozen 2

Frozen II
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 43min
  • U
  • Directed by: Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee
  • Cast: Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, Jonathan Groff

Elsa (Menzel) and Anna (Bell) head off on a dangerous journey after Elsa hears voices calling her to a distant land. The plot is less involving than the character interaction, but Olaf (Gad) is the comedic highlight and while it may be less compelling than the original, it's got all the ingredients for a hit.

The Good Liar

The Good Liar
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • 15
  • 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.

Harriet

Harriet
  • 2019
  • US
  • Directed by: Kasi Lemmons
  • Cast: Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr, Janelle Monae

The true story of abolitionist and activist Harriet Tubman (Erivo), who escaped from slavery and carried out numerous rescue missions to help family, friends and others. Erivo brings gravity and steeliness to a rather formulaic and superficial script, but at least it’ll get Tubman’s heroism more widely known.

Joker

Joker
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 2min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Todd Phillips
  • Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro

Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) is an unsuccessful clown who wants to be a comedian, but he gradually turns to evil. This dizzying origin story about Batman’s nemesis is like an ode to 1970s New York City; Phoenix is astonishing and Phillips’s grave vision never swerves. Unmissable.

Last Christmas

Last Christmas
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 43min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, Emma Thompson, Michelle Yeoh

Kate (Clarke) is a Yugoslavian immigrant whose life is going downhill until she meets the mysterious bike-riding Tom (Golding), who seems too good to be true. Thompson and Kimmings’ script is a saccharine romantic fantasy and George Michael’s music isn’t always incorporated effectively, but its heart is in the right place.

Le Mans '66

Le Mans '66
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 32min
  • Directed by: James Mangold
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal, Caitriona Balfe, Tracy Letts, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, Remo Girone, Ray McKinnon

Car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) teams up with mechanic/driver Ken Miles (Bale) in the story of how Ford tried to beat Ferrari at Le Mans in 1966. The race scenes are directed with thrilling energy, and if scenes between Miles and his wife Mollie (Balfe) are uneven, it’s an effective story about dreamers who risked everything.

The Lion King

The Lion King
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 58min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Cast: Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, James Earl Jones

The photorealistic version of the beloved Disney story has memorable visuals, impressive set-pieces and adorable yet credible animals, but precisely because they’re so realistic, it’s weird when they speak and even stranger when they sing. All the star voices in the world don’t count when you can’t simulate heart and soul.

Lucy in the Sky

Lucy in the Sky
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 4min
  • Directed by: Noah Hawley
  • Cast: Natalie Portman, Jon Hamm, Dan Stevens, Zazie Beetz

Lucy (Portman) is an astronaut back from her first space mission, who soon starts to be attracted to fellow astronaut and recently divorced dad Mark (Hamm). It soon goes into Fatal Attraction territory, and while Portman’s commitment is reminiscent of a young Jodie Foster, the film is more style than substance.

Ricky (Hitchen) becomes a freelance delivery driver in order to earn more money, but the financial toll on himself and his wife Abby (Honeywood) starts to destroy their family life. No easy answers, no triumph against the odds, just a gruelling portrait of the damage the system can do.
