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.

I, Daniel Blake

I, Daniel Blake
  • 2016
  • UK/France
  • 100 min
  • Directed by: Ken Loach
  • Cast: Dave Johns, Hayley Squires

Newly widowed Newcastle joiner Daniel (Johns) has worked all his life, but when his doctor tells him that his heart condition means he can't work, the welfare system disagrees. Familiar territory for Loach and screenwriter Laverty but despite unapologetic heartstring-tugging, the subject – the system's intrinsic cruelty and unfairness – is sadly more relevant than ever.

A Street Cat Named Bob
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Roger Spottiswoode
  • Cast: Luke Treadaway, Ruta Gedmintas, Joanne Froggatt, Anthony Head

James (Treadaway) is a homeless heroin addict who gets onto a support programme, which offers him a flat on condition he stick to the rules. Enter the titular cat, which forces James to care for something else. Based on a true story; Treadaway is very watchable, and Bob the cat is (largely) played by himself. Gritty and heartwarming.
