42nd Street

42nd Street
  • 1933
  • US
  • 1h 29min
  • U
  • Directed by: Lloyd Bacon
  • Cast: Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell, Ginger Rogers

‘Come and meet those dancing feet, on the avenue I’m taking you to – 42nd Street.’ One of the brightest, toe-tapping backstage musical triumphs from Depression era Hollywood, 42nd Street provided a major stepping stone in the career of twenty-two-year-old Ginger Rogers. Ruby Keeler is the chorus girl who steps in to replace an ailing leading lady and emerges a shiny new Broadway star but Rogers steals all her scenes as wise-cracking, gold-digging chorus girl Anytime Annie. Eye-popping choreography from Busby Berkeley is matched by an unforgettable score that includes ‘Shuffle off to Buffalo’, ‘You’re Getting to be a Habit with Me’ and the glorious title track. Part of the Glasgow Film Festival

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 38min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bonni Cohen, Jon Shenk
  • Cast: Al Gore, Barack Obama, Donald J. Trump

Eleven years after the original film, this is a fly-on-the-wall portrait of the Big Daddy of global environmentalism going about his work. Gore comes across as a charming and savvy negotiator, funny, empathetic and passionate. An inspiring call to people to exercise their power.

Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 55min
  • 15
  • Directed by: David Leitch
  • Cast: Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman, Sofia Boutella,

Lorraine Broughton (Theron) is an MI6 agent tasked with finding a list of double-crossing agents, aided by dodgy fellow spy David (McAvoy) as she kicks the arses of an army of foes in 1989 Berlin. Basically a showcase for Theron’s sparring ability and withering looks, it features authentically exhausting fights and is a shamelessly derivative but fun actioner.

The Big Sick

The Big Sick
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Michael Showalter
  • Cast: Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter, Ray Romano

Culture clash comedy written by real life couple Emily V Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani. It plays out with charming, sometimes toe-curling honesty and an acknowledgement of how complicated life can get when expectations weigh heavy and tradition unceremoniously intervenes.

England Is Mine

England Is Mine
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 32min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mark Gill
  • Cast: Jessica Brown Findlay, Jodie Comer, Jack Lowden

Manchester, 1976: Steven Patrick Morrissey (Jack Lowden) impatiently waits for his genius to be uncovered. Lowden shows some stage presence but this unauthorised biopic of the Smiths frontman has little to say and features none of the band's iconic music.

A Ghost Story

A Ghost Story
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 27min
  • Directed by: David Lowery
  • Cast: Rooney Mara, Sonia Acevedo, Casey Affleck, Carlos Bermudez

C (Affleck) and M (Mara) are a couple; when C is killed in a car crash, he returns as a ghost to make contact with M. Lowery manages to reanimate the corny old trope of the ghost under a bedsheet, creating a story about grief and a captivating reflection on the enormity of mankind’s existence.

Your Name
  • 2016
  • Japan
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Makoto Shinkai
  • Written by: Makoto Shinkai
  • Cast: Mone Kamashiraishi, Etsuko Ichihara, Ryûnosuke Kamiki

Country girl Mitsuha (Kamishiraishi) and city boy Taki (Kamiki) find themselves inexplicably transported into each other's bodies. A sweet love story told against a background of genuine tragedy, it has more philosophical meat than most grown-up dramas, and a finely wrought, emotionally charged payoff.
