The Eagle Huntress

The Eagle Huntress
  • 2016
  • UK / Mongolia / US
  • 87 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Otto Bell
  • Cast: Aisholpan Nurgaiv, Daisy Ridley (voice)

Aisholpan Nurgaiv, a 13 year old girl, trains to become the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter. Crowd-pleasing documentary which skirts some of the deeper issues, and Ridley's monotonous voice-over doesn't help, but only a cold heart would fail to be stirred by Aisholpan's game-changing story.

Indignation

Indignation
  • 2016
  • US
  • 110 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Schamus
  • Cast: Logan Lerman, Sarah Gadon, Tracy Letts

Ohio, 1951: Marcus (Lerman) is a young Jewish man attending a liberal college, where he meets Olivia (Gadon), a magnetic, troubled woman whose advances attract and also guilt-trip him. This deliberately low-key drama about sex and religion benefits from Schamus's refined storytelling, making it the best Philip Roth adaptation in decades.

  • Directed by: Damien Chazelle
  • Cast: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, J.K. Simmons

In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). Audaciously inventive homage to classic movie musicals, technically wonderful and joyously emotional, with Gosling as a goofy idealistic charmer and Stone showing the versatility, vulnerability and talent of a young Shirley MacLaine. Irresistible.

  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Cast: Adam Driver, Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, Tadanobu Asano

Scorsese's long-planned passion project, an adaptation of Shusaku Endo's 1966 novel about two 17th century Catholic priests (Garfield & Driver) who travel to Japan in search of their mentor (Neeson). Fervently told and unusually cerebral – if a little black and white – it's a work of courageous severity and contemplation.

Storks used to deliver babies, but now they run an Amazon-style delivery service; then ambitious stork Junior (Samberg) and colleague Tulip (Crown) have to deliver an actual baby. Colourful animation and some amusing voice work can't fix the gigantic plot holes, which will leave both parents and kids scratching their heads.
