Arabian Nights Volume 1: The Restless One

Arabian Nights Volume 1: The Restless One
  • 2015
  • Portugal
  • 125 min
  • Directed by: Miguel Gomes
  • Cast: Crista Alfaiate, Miguel Gomes, Maria Rueff

The first of a sprawling, wildly inventive trilogy in which director Gomes confronts the age of austerity; director Gomes plays himself as a bumbling, Charlie Kaufman-esque figure overwhelmed by the task he has set himself, until he allows his storytelling imagination to soar.

  • Written by: Christopher Markus , Stephen McFeely, Mark Millar (comic book)

When world leaders demand that the Avengers operate under UN supervision, the team splits. If you haven't seen previous instalments it will make no sense, but if you have, all the plot points bear bittersweet fruit, in a brilliant combination of hectic action and one liners with intimate, heartbreaking moments.

Capture the Flag

Capture the Flag
  • 2015
  • Spain
  • 94 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Enrique Gato
  • Cast: Dani Rovira, Michelle Jenner, Carme Calvell

When villainous energy magnate Richard Carson questions the validity of the original moon landing, the race is on for NASA to return to the moon and stop Carson rewriting history. Despite a promising theme, this lame CG adventure is lacking in laughs, ideas or charm and just about scrapes by on good intentions.

Florence Foster Jenkins

Florence Foster Jenkins
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 110 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stephen Frears
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg

Florence Foster Jenkins (Streep) is a wealthy, cultured New York socialite, who insists on performing as a soprano in spite of a total inability to sing. Streep throws herself endearingly into the role, Grant is wonderful as her debonair husband and Frears keeps a confident balance of uproarious laughs and genuine pathos.

The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book
  • 2016
  • US
  • 106 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Written by: Justin Marks (screenplay), Rudyard Kipling
  • Cast: Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken

You know the story: boy (Sethi) left in woods, adopted by wolves (Nyong'o and Esposito), mentored by panther (Kingsley), befriended by bear (Murray), hunted by tiger (Elba, terrifying). Favreau and his team successfully retool the story with stunning CGI, and a script with heart, soul and spirit. A feelgood delight.

  • Cast: Franka Potente, Moritz Bleibtreu

Young Berlin punk Lola (Potente) has 20 minutes to raise 100,000 marks to save her stupid, but beloved boyfriend from murderous drug dealers. Not an easy task, but writer/director Tom Twyker gives Lola three chances and helps her pound the streets with a thumping, self-composed techno soundtrack. Using every style trick in the book, Twyker astounds with an adrenaline rush of a movie.

Auschwitz, 1944: prisoner Saul (Röhrig) is a member of the Sonderkommando, tasked with disposing of corpses after mass executions, who becomes determined to give a proper burial to a body he believes to be that of his son.
