Cinderella

Cinderella
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • U
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Lily James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Stellan Skarsgård, Nonso Anozie, Derek Jacobi, Hayley Atwell, Ben Chaplin

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: Tim Johnson
  • Cast: Rihanna, Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez, Steve Martin

Oh (Parsons) is part of an alien race who've colonised Earth by decanting humans to amusement parks in Australia, but he's forced to team up with lost little girl Tip (Rihanna). A confusing and uninteresting story, wall-to-wall Rihanna songs, twee dialogue and Parsons' annoyingly whiny voice make for a grating experience.

  • Directed by: David Robert Mitchell
  • Cast: Maika Monroe, Keir Gilchrist, Olivia Luccardi

Jay (Monroe) is a Michigan teenager whose lover reveals that he's infected her with a potentially deadly curse. Sensitive, visually arresting and utterly disturbing horror about the possible consequences of a sexual encounter, with a deeply affecting performance from Monroe and an excellent supporting cast.

The Knife that Killed Me

The Knife that Killed Me
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Kit Monkman/Marcus Romer
  • Cast: Jack McMullen, Reece Dinsdale, Jamie Shelton

It's not a spoiler: Paul (McMullen) narrates the events that led to his fatal stabbing, as he started at a new school, fell in love, made friends but got pulled to the dark side. Made entirely on green-screen, it resembles a nightmarish urban cartoon; the stylised approach, initially remarkable, makes it hard to get involved. An interesting but flawed experiment.

The Philadelphia Story

The Philadelphia Story
  • 1940
  • US
  • 112 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: George Cukor
  • Cast: Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, James Stewart.

Splendidly sophisticated Hollywood comedy with Stewart as a scandalsheet reporter covering the society wedding of recently divorced Hepburn, ex-hubby Grant lurking in the wings, and romance recurdling despite itself. Sparkling dialogue and charismatic performances all round make this one of the best of its kind. Remade as the musical, High Society.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • 122 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Madden
  • Cast: Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Judi Dench

This sequel to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (yes, you may have guessed) has an ensemble cast, and follows the expansionist dreams of Sonny. He has his eye on a second property, but there are still predicaments to resolve in his first.

  • Directed by: William Eubank
  • Cast: Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke, Beau Knapp

Nic (Thwaites) is a student with muscular dystrophy whose relationship with girlfriend Haley (Cooke) is under stress; then he wakes up in a sinister hospital run by Dr Wallace Damon (Fishburne). With excellent performances and a sparing use of effects, this disconcertingly off-kilter sci-fi flick announces writer/director Eubank as a remarkable talent.

  • Cast: Michelle Williams, Kristin Scott Thomas, Matthias Schoenaerts

Lucile Angellier (Williams) is married and lives in a village in occupied France in the 1940s; when handsome young German officer Bruno von Falk (Schoenaerts) arrives, romance blossoms. Adapted from Irène Némirovsky's novellas, it suffers from wayward pacing but Williams is as honest and affecting as ever. Pack a hanky.

The Tale of The Princess Kaguya
  • 2013
  • Japan
  • U
  • Directed by: Isao Takahata
  • Cast: Chloë Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen

Kaguya (voiced by Moretz in the English dub) is magically born to a bamboo cutter (Caan) and his wife (Steenburgen), but she's devastated when he moves to the city so that she can become a princess. Enchanting, admirable fable about the damaging effects of stereotypes; Kaguya's father is not cruel, just terribly misguided.
