The Light Between Oceans

The Light Between Oceans
  • 2016
  • US/Australia/UK/New Zealand
  • 132 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Derek Cianfrance
  • Cast: Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander, Rachel Weisz, Bryan Brown, Jack Thompson

Tom (Fassbender) is a repressed former soldier working as a lighthouse keeper in post-WWI Australia; one day he and his wife Isabel (Vikander) find a live baby and dead man in a rowboat. Weighty stuff, but the laboriously worthy screenplay and overwrought direction make it disappointingly conventional and mawkish where it should be moving.

Queen of Katwe
  • 2016
  • US
  • 124 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Mira Nair
  • Cast: Madina Nalwanga, David Oyelowo, Lupita Nyong'o

Biopic of Phiona Mutesi (Nalwanga), a girl from the slums of Katwe, Uganda, who turned out to have a genius for chess. Confidently heartwarming stuff, if a little predictable, with a wonderfully engrossing performance from Nalwanga and classy support from Oyelowo as Phiona's coach and Nyong'o as her mother.
