  • Cast: Emma Stone, Steve Carell, Andrea Riseborough, Elisabeth Shue

Based on the true story of the 1973 tennis match between unrepentant male chauvinist ex-no. 1 Bobby Riggs (Carell) and Wimbledon champion Billie Jean King (Stone). An irresistible story, with Carell finding the outrageous and the sad within Riggs, and Stone’s warm and forceful performance winning the film.

James (Mooney) was kidnapped as a boy by April (Adams) and Ted (Hamill) and was raised partly on a TV show that Ted made just for him, Brigsby Bear Adventures; as a man, James has to adjust to the real world. Weird and wonderful comedy drama which intelligently and sympathetically considers arrested development.

Enchanted

Enchanted
  • 2007
  • US
  • 1h 47min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Kevin Lima
  • Written by: Bill Kelly
  • Cast: Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Timothy Spall, Idina Menzel, Rachel Covey, Susan Sarandon

Two fairytale characters struggle to find each other and make it in the 'real' world in this mix of live and animated action (à la Who Framed Roger Rabbit). Enchanted is one of the nastiest, most insidious children's films adults will have the displeasure of seeing this year. Chock full of pseudo-Christian ideas, Waspish imperialism, product placement and celebrations of consumer culture this is about as evil as Disney gets. Leave your critical faculties, reason and humanity at the door.

  • 2017
  • USA
  • 1h 46min
  • U
  • Directed by: Carlos Saldanha
  • Written by: Munro Leaf
  • Cast: Kate McKinnon, David Tennant, Bobby Cannavale

Ferdinand (Cena) is a Spanish bull who prefers sniffing flowers to staring down bullfighters; shipped off to a farm, he has to escape both the slaughterhouse and the ring. Amiable animation which, although funny, is too overcrowded and unfocused to be really satisfying.

  • Directed by: Francis Lee
  • Written by: Francis Lee

Johnny (O’Connor) is a young Yorkshireman living with his sour grandmother (Jones) and disgruntled father (Hart), whose life is turned upside-down by the arrival of Romanian migrant Ghoerghe (Secareanu). Fluid photography and achingly honest performances make for a transformative drama about the possibility of a better life.

  • France / Austria / Germany
  • 1h 47min
  • Directed by: Michael Haneke
  • Cast: Jean-Louis Trintignant, Isabelle Huppert, Mathieu Kassovitz, Fantine Harduin

The story of a powerful, privileged bourgeois family living near Calais but seemingly oblivious to everything happening on its doorstep. It’s bleak and pitiless, and doesn’t quite have the hypnotic intensity of previous Haneke films like Amour and The White Ribbon.

Ambitious documentary about the global refugee crisis,, made with 25 crews criss-crossing the globe. Ai’s empathy for the displaced comes through and although it’s a little unwieldy at times, it’s full of poetic images and fascinating on-the-ground footage.

In a conservative Hasidic community in Brooklyn, widowed father Menashe (Lustig) wants to raise his own 12-year-old son (Niborski), but the rabbi rules that the boy must live with relatives until such time as Menashe is ready to remarry. Lightly comic character piece which examines its milieu with affection and humour.

Mountain

Mountain
  • 2017
  • Australia
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jennifer Peedom
  • Cast: Willem Dafoe,

Staggering immersive documentary about the pursuit of peril, matching images of free climbers grappling for footholds with the sound of the Australian Chamber Orchestra playing Vivaldi, Beethoven and Chopin. The occasionally pompous narration sometimes lets it down, but it’s a great advert for mountaineering.

Paddington 2

Paddington 2
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Imelda Staunton

Paddington (Whishaw) falls foul of a dastardly scheme to steal the key to a hidden fortune. The sequel to the wildly successful first film is implausibly even better, with spiffing action pieces, seemingly throwaway gags paying rich dividends later, and splendid performances from all, with Grant brilliant as the has-been thespian villain. Joyful stuff.

  • Directed by: Sally Potter
  • Cast: Kristin Scott Thomas, Timothy Spall, Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, Cherry Jones

Janet (Scott Thomas) is throwing a party to celebrate her promotion to Shadow Health Minister, but as friends arrive, secrets emerge and it all starts to unravel. Potter’s most accessible and uproarious film yet runs to a succinct 71 minutes but expertly takes the pulse of the nation.

The Prince of Nothingwood

The Prince of Nothingwood
  • 2017
  • France / Germany
  • 1h 25min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sonia Kronlund

Documentary about Afghanistan’s most prolific filmmaker, Salim Shaheen, who has made over a hundred movies even in wartime conditions. Director Kronlund lets Shaheen self-mythologise without restraint and although it’s a touch repetitive and could use more context, it’s a fun and sometimes revealing fly-on-the-wall about an indefatigable movie eccentric.

Shrek

Shrek
  • 2001
  • US
  • 1h 30min
  • U
  • Directed by: Andrew Adamson, Vicky Jenson
  • Written by: Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio, Joe Stillman, Roger S H Schulman
  • Cast: Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, John Lithgow

Shrek will have Walt Disney turning in his cryogenic freeze tank. This truly subversive animated film takes pot shots at fairytale mythology, while singling out Uncle Walt's beloved Snow White, Cinderella, Pinocchio, et al. Under the guise of a quest to rescue a princess from a dragon undertaken by the eponymous green ogre (which kids will love), Shrek also ruthlessly pillages corporate Disney, satirising its theme parks and executives. And who's behind all this? Producer Jeffrey Katzenberg of Disney rival studio DreamWorks, also formerly head of, yep, Disney.

  • Directed by: Francesco Stefani

A prince attempts to win the heart of a spoilt princess by finding the singing, ringing tree. Notoriously creepy East German fairy tale.

  • Cast: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran

Rey (Ridley) meets Luke (Hamill) to learn all about the Force. Johnson expands on the casualties-of-war theme, making magnificent, roaring action sequences and leading the viewer through a blood-stained moral labyrinth. Driver returns with a vengeance, Dern is terrific and it hits the sweet spot between nostalgia and gripping storytelling.
