Baby Driver

Baby Driver
  • 2017
  • UK/US
  • 113 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Edgar Wright
  • Written by: Edgar Wright
  • Cast: Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx

Baby (Elgort) is an Atlanta getaway driver, forced by his boss Doc (Spacey) into doing one last heist. Exuberant crime caper full of stonking music; the story is hardly original, but Wright’s snappy dialogue and zesty direction reinvigorates the genre clichés, and the stars revel in it. Great fun.

Hampstead

Hampstead
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 102 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joel Hopkins
  • Written by: Robert Festinger
  • Cast: Diane Keaton, James Norton, Brendan Gleeson

Emily (Keaton) is an American widow living in Hampstead who falls for the grumpy Donald (Gleeson), who lives in a shack on Hampstead Heath. Twee later-life rom-com with Ketaon in pure ditz mode; her and Gleeson’s chemistry is appealing, but there are no surprises.

My Cousin Rachel

My Cousin Rachel
  • 2017
  • UK/US
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Roger Michell
  • Cast: Sam Claflin, Rachel Weisz, Holliday Grainger

A young Englishman plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms. Weisz is a fine choice for the eponymous enigma, while Claflin is superb as her heedless admirer Philip but the film feels desperately abbreviated.

Okja

Okja
  • 2017
  • South Korea / US
  • Directed by: Bong Joon-Ho
  • Cast: Ahn Seo-Hyun, Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano

Lucy (Swinton) is the CEO of a vast agrochemical company which is developing an environmentally friendly super-pig, but 13-year-old Mija (Ahn, endearingly understated) befriends one. Brash, cartoonish satire with great special effects but mannered performances from Swinton and Gyllenhaal, which uneasily tries to mix an ET-style heartwarmer with a sometimes graphic exploration of industrial food production.
