Ballerina

Ballerina
  • 2016
  • France / Canada
  • 89 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Eric Summer / Éric Warin
  • Cast: Voices of Dane DeHaan, Elle Fanning, Maddie Ziegler

Orphaned Félicie (Fanning) strives to reach her dream of performing ballet at the Grand Opera House, with the help of mentor Odette (Jepsen). A ballet version of The Karate Kid, it looks nice but the soundtrack is a mish-mash and the story is formulaic and lacks comic zing.

Collateral Beauty
  • 2016
  • US
  • 97 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Frankel
  • Cast: Will Smith, Edward Norton, Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren

Ad-man Howard (Smith) is numbed with grief from the loss of his child, and his business partners plot to undermine him, but it turns out they have their own personal problems blah blah blah. The best that can be said for this torturously schmaltzy Christmas Carol rip-off is that it's shorter than other bad Will Smith films.

The Fits

  • 73 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Anna Rose Holmer
  • Cast: Royalty Hightower, Alexis Neblett, Da’Sean Minor, Lauren Gibson, Makyla Burnam, Inayah Rodgers, Antonio A.B. Grant Jr., The Q-Kidz Dance Team

The beguiling story of an isolated tomboy.

A strikingly and often delightfully abstract story of an 11 year-old tomboy torn between two worlds, the masculine boxing gym where she spars and helps clean with her brother, and the adjacent gym where young female dancers practice. Royalty Hightower is quite mesmerising as young Toni, silently starring at the different worlds. Anna Rose Holmer’s debut film takes on an appropriately dreamy quality as Toni is drawn to dance troupe, the Lionesses.

Jackie

Jackie
  • 2016
  • USA
  • 100 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Pablo Larrain
  • Cast: Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, John Hurt

Impressionistic, non-linear portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy, with an agonising, in-depth performance by Portman, who is gripping either while giving a shy television tour of the White House, or going to pieces in a bathroom. A mesmerising, technically virtuosic and remarkable reflection on celebrity, memory and the determined individual crafting history.

La La Land
  • 2016
  • US
  • 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.

  • Cast: Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Lucas Hedges, Kyle Chandler, Gretchen Mol

Lee (Affleck) is a carefree small-town guy who, when his brother dies, is given the job of raising his nephew (Hedges). A masterful blend of high drama, quirky characterisations and incidental detail, with a soulful, heartbreaking turn by Affleck at its core.

  • Spain/UK/US
  • 108 min

  • Directed by: JA Bayona
  • Cast: Sigourney Weaver, Felicity Jones, Toby Kebbell, Lewis MacDougall, Liam Neeson

Twelve-year-old Conor (MacDougall) has a mother (Jones) who's battling cancer and a father (Kebbell) who's walked out; then a yew-tree-shaped monster with Neeson's voice comes into his life. Coming-of-age tearjerker with a sometimes thin story, but fine performances from Jones and MacDougall.

Roy Chubby Brown

Roy Chubby Brown

Sarcastic and insulting humour of a blue hue from the Yorkshire-born stand-up.

Not suitable for under 18s or those of a nervous disposition.

  • 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.
