When Robin (Andrew Garfield) is struck down by polio at the age of 28, he is confined to a hospital bed and given only a few months to live. With the help of his wifes twin brothers (Tom Hollander) and the groundbreaking ideas of inventor Teddy Hall (Hugh Bonneville), Robin and Diana (Claire Foy) dare to escape the hospital ward to seek out a full and passionate life together - raising their young son, traveling and devoting their lives to helping other polio patients.Part exuberant love story, part great escape adventure, this is an old-fashioned tale of triumph over adversity that refuses - like its protagonists - to succumb to confinement. I honestly cant remember the last time I laughed and cried so much at the same movie. Mark Kermode

Directed by Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn, Woman in Gold), the film looks at the relationship between children's author A. A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin, whose toys inspired the magical world of Winnie the Pooh. Along with his mother Daphne (Margot Robbie), and his nanny Olive (Kelly MacDonald), Christopher Robin and his family are swept up in the international success of the books; the enchanting tales bringing hope and comfort to many after the First World War but the cost to the family may be greater than any of them anticipated.

Fiona (Fiona Gordon) is a small-town Canadian librarian. When her orderly life is disrupted by a letter of distress from her 88-year-old Aunt Martha (delightfully portrayed by Emmanuelle Riva), who is living in Paris, Fiona hops on the first plane she can and arrives only to discover that Martha has disappeared. In an avalanche of spectacular disasters, she encounters Dom (Dominique Abel), the affable, but annoying tramp who just wont leave her alone. Replete with the amazing antics and intricately choreographed slapstick that has come to define Abel and Gordons work, Lost in Paris is a wondrously fun and hectic tale of peculiar people finding love while lost in the City of Lights.Thank goodness for burlesque duo Abel and Gordon. They are, simply put, the two funniest clowns working in cinema today. No, really: Dominique Abel is a Belgian-born, vaudeville-style human pretzel and gifted physical comic on par with Chaplin or Keaton, while real-life Australian wife Fiona Gordon is a Tilda Swinton-tall redhead with Olive Oyl elbows and an Easter Island profile. And with their latest film, Lost in Paris, they are bound to finally register on Americas radar – because who wouldnt want a picturesque trip to the French capital that delivers more laughs than a nitrous oxide leak near the hyena compound? In fact, Id go as far as to promise that Lost in Paris offers the three most delightful sight gags youll see on screen all year. Variety

- Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
- Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley
Murder in the dead of night, a carriage of suspects trapped in an avalanche, and the world’s greatest detective is on hand to solve it. Against the odds, Branagh pulls off a stylish, first-class, surprisingly poignant retelling with fluid camerawork and a top cast, and has a fine old time as the arrogant, outrageously moustachioed Poirot.
