1917

1917
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Sam Mendes
  • Cast: George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Claire Duburcq, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch

Lance Corporals Schofield (MacKay) and Blake (Chapman) are given the job of hand-delivering a message to another unit, across the mud and misery of the trenches. It suffers from simplistic dialogue and flat characterisation, but it’s visually impressive and a respectable, heartfelt tribute to the sacrifice of WWI.

Emma

Emma
  • 2020
  • UK
  • PG
  • Directed by: Autumn de Wilde
  • Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Josh O'Connor, Gemma Whelan

Emma (Taylor-Joy) is a self-important matchmaker blinded by snobbery and youthful hubris. It’s in keeping with the vogue for complex, unapologetic heroines but the comedy is rather hit and miss and it looks great. Taylor-Joy’s alert performance makes Emma her own.

Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 48min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Taika Waititi
  • Cast: Roman Griffin Davis, Scarlett Johansson, Taika Waititi, Rebel Wilson, Thomasin McKenzie, Sam Rockwell, Stephen Merchant

Jojo (Davis) is a ten-year-old, obedient Nazi boy in WWII Germany whose mother (Johansson) is in the Resistance; Jojo reinvents Hitler (Waititi) as his oddball imaginary friend. Waititi ridicules Nazi ideology with aplomb, and as Jojo journeys towards enlightenment and reconnects with his humanity, it’s even rather beautiful.

The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 51min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Robert Eggers
  • Cast: Robert Pattinson, Willem Dafoe

Ephraim (Pattinson) and Tom (Dafoe) are two lighthouse keepers in 19th century Maine who find that the isolation is getting to them. A slow-burn psychological thriller with rich use of salty period language and unexpected shards of black comedy, filmed in shadowy monochrome: the result is somewhere between FW Murnau and Buster Keaton.

The Personal History of David Copperfield

The Personal History of David Copperfield
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 59min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Armando Iannucci
  • Cast: Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Aneurin Barnard, Ben Whishaw, Morfydd Clark, Peter Capaldi, Gwendoline Christie, Benedict Wong, Paul Whitehouse, Daisy May Cooper

David (Patel) is an ever-optimistic orphan who’s given shelter by poor but worthy Mr Micawber (Capaldi). Iannucci brings out the lighter side of Dickens, and the result is a sprightly, breezy and colourful crack at a classic, with a fabulous supporting cast and a perfect turn by Patel as the likeable hero.
