The Greatest Showman

The Greatest Showman
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michael Gracey
  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya

A musical version of the life of showman and genius of hype PT Barnum (Jackman), and how he went from running a museum of ‘curiosities’ to promoting Swedish soprano Jenny Lind (Ferguson). Jackman has rock-star charisma and Gracey delivers a kaleidoscopic, family-friendly spectacle.

Little Women

Little Women
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 15min
  • U
  • Directed by: Greta Gerwig
  • Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, Laura Dern, Timothée Chalamet, Meryl Streep, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, James Norton, Louis Garrel, Chris Cooper

Adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s 1868 novel about a group of sisters growing up after the American Civil War. Gerwig’s affection and respect for the book is obvious but she boldly captures the transition from childhood to womanhood by playing with structure; an outstanding cast and skilful filmmaking make it a beautifully crafted tale of sisterhood, memory and authorship.

Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back

The Empire Strikes Back
  • 1980
  • US
  • 2h 4min
  • U
  • Directed by: Irvin Kershner
  • Written by: George Lucas, Leigh Brackett, Lawrence Kasdan
  • Cast: Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, David Prowse, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, Frank Oz

Arguably the best Star Wars film, the middle part of the original trilogy is packed with drama, tension, humour and a belter of a cliffhanger. Much of its impact has been lost to familiarity (that twist) but it's a masterpiece, impeccably directed by George Lucas' old UCLA tutor Kershner.
