How To Build A Girl

  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 42min
  • Directed by: Coky Giedroyc
  • Cast: Beanie Feldstein, Sarah Solemani, Alfie Allen

Johanna (Feldstein) is a bookish teen who’s picked up as a writer for a music magazine. Likeably ludicrous comedy based on Caitlin Moran’s novel with typically confident comedic work from Feldstein; the real star is Moran’s hysterical script, full of memorable lines and killer observations.

  • Directed by: Alice Winocour
  • Cast: Eva Green, Zélie Boulant, Matt Dillon

Sarah (Green) is a French astronaut preparing to go to Mars, whose schedule is punctuated by visits from her daughter (Boulant). A heartrending astronaut drama that eschews spectacle and focuses on the mother-daughter relationship, with superb performances from all. Beautiful and insightful.

  • Belgium / France
  • 1h 30min
  • Directed by: Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardenne
  • Cast: Idir Ben Addi, Myriem Akheddiou, Claire Bodson, Victoria Bluck

Ahmed (Ben Addi) is a radicalised Muslim teenager fixated on killing his teacher (Akheddiou). The Dardenne brothers’ usual poise eludes them here, with a flimsy yarn aiming for a classic redemptive arc but brought down by unconvincing dialogue, perplexing subplots and a reliance on clichés.
