Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them
  • 2016
  • UK/US
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Written by: J.K. Rowling
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston

Newt Scamander (Redmayne), a socially-challenged animal whisperer of sorts, has to gather up the fantastic beasts which have escaped from his briefcase and are roaming 1920s New York. A suitably magical spin-off, with Rowling's screenplay skilfully balancing dark and light, and director Yates maintaining a thrilling pace and exciting spectacle.

Sully

Sully
  • 2016
  • US
  • 96 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Clint Eastwood
  • Cast: Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney

The story of pilot Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger (Hanks), who became an unassuming hero in 2009 after successfully ditching a US Airways Airbus 320 on the Hudson River. Eckhart gives strong support as co-pilot Jeff Skiles but the film belongs to Hanks, whose understated performance, with the skilful re-enactments of the crash, make for riveting drama.

The Unknown Girl

  • 2016
  • Belgium
  • 113 min
  • Directed by: Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardienne
  • Cast: Adèle Haenel, Fabrizio Rongione, Olivier Gourmet

Jenny (Haenel) is a brisk, kindly GP beloved of her patients. After a rare moment of carelessness, she is compelled to investigate the death of a young black woman. Haenel is compelling, and the story has plenty of resonance, but the surprisingly conventional narrative doesn't quite add up and it's worthy rather than inspired.
