  • 126 min
  • 12A
  • 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.

  • 2016
  • US / Taiwan / Mexico
  • 161 min
  • 15
  • 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.

  • Directed by: M. Night Shyamalan
  • Cast: James McAvoy, Jessica Sula, Haley Lu Richardson, Anya Taylor-Joy

Kevin (McAvoy) suffers from dissociative identity disorder; when he kidnaps three teenage girls, best pals Marcia (Sula) and Claire (Richardson) and troubled loner Casey (Taylor-Joy), multi-personality strangeness ensues. With superb work from McAvoy and Taylor-Joy, this is easily Shyamalan's most compelling and intelligent movie in years.

T2 Trainspotting

T2 Trainspotting
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 117 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Danny Boyle
  • Cast: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kelly MacDonald, James Cosmo, Shirley Henderson, Irvine Welsh

Renton (McGregor) returns to Edinburgh from Amstersdam, two decades on. Hodge's blood-pumping script builds on the original with characters that are older, sadder and definitely not wiser, and resentment and guilt festering like an open sore; but is it Archie-Gemmill-scoring-against-Holland good? Yes it is.
