All The Money In The World

All The Money In The World
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 13min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Cast: Michelle Williams, Christopher Plummer, Mark Wahlberg, Charlie Plummer

The story of the kidnapping of the grandson of miserly industrialist J Paul Getty (Plummer). Plummer, who was a last-minute replacement for the now-disgraced Kevin Spacey, brings understated gravitas and Williams is noble and credible as the kidnap victim’s mother Gail. A sometimes blood-boiling morality tale, pulled off by Scott with remarkable aplomb.

Call Me by Your Name

Call Me by Your Name
  • 2017
  • Italy/France/Brazil/US
  • 2h 10min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Luca Guadagnino
  • Cast: Armie Hammer, Timothée Chalamet, Michael Stuhlbarg

Oliver (Hammer) arrives at a country palazzo in Lombardy to be intern to the family patriarch (Stuhlbarg), but he slowly forms a strong bond with the 17-year-old son Elio (Chalamet). Sensitive and sensuous love story which treats characters and audiences with respect; one of the best films of the year.

Coco

Coco
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Lee Unkrich
  • Cast: Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Renée Victor, Ana Ofelia Murguia, Edward James Olmos

Coco (Rivera) is a 12-year-old Mexican boy who wants to be a musician, but his family disapproves. Then he steals a guitar from a mausoleum and finds himself in the Land of the Dead. An eye-popping mosaic of a kids’ movie which pays proper respect to Mexican folklore, its sincerity and creativity are ultimately winning.

Darkest Hour

Darkest Hour
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 54min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Joe Wright
  • Cast: Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Ben Mendlesohn, Ronald Pickup

May 1940: the situation in Europe is worsening, and Britain needs a new prime minister. The latest in a very long line of recent Churchill performances is by far the best: Oldman is virtually unrecognisable and attacks the part with relish, with Scott Thomas excellent as his wife Clemmie. It may veer into hero worship but it’s a confidently handled crowdpleaser.

  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 38min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Franco
  • Cast: James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Josh Hutcherson, Zac Efron, Hannibal Buress, Melanie Griffith, Sharon Stone, Jacki Weaver

The story behind the making of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room, regarded by many as the worst movie ever made; Franco plays the hapless auteur with impressive mimicry and sincerity. A charming tale about friendship, reaching for your dreams and trying to make it in Hollywood.

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.

Molly's Game

Molly's Game
  • 2017
  • 2h 20min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Aaron Sorkin
  • Cast: Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner

Competitive skier Molly Bloom (Chastain) turns to running professional poker games after suffering a career-ending sports injury. Sorkin’s directorial debut features much of his crisp dialogue which Chastain and Elba manage to make sound natural; shame about the script’s dispiriting preoccupation with Molly’s daddy issues.

The Party

The Party
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 11min
  • 15
  • 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.

Royal Opera House: Rigoletto

Royal Opera House: Rigoletto
  • 2018
  • Directed by: David McVicar
  • Cast: Dimitri Platanias, Lucy Crowe, Micheal Fabiano

David McVicar’s production of Verdi's tragedy highlights the cruelty at the heart of the court of Mantua.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 32min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rian Johnson
  • 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.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
  • 2017
  • UK / US
  • 1h 55min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Martin McDonagh
  • Cast: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage

Exasperated by the police’s failure to catch her daughter’s murderer, Mildred Hayes (McDormand) buys ad space on the titular billboards to tear a strip off the police chief (Harrelson). McDonagh’s latest delicately balances the lingering pain of the crime itself with dark comedy, and a superb cast is topped by a magnificent performance from McDormand.

Walk with Me

Walk with Me
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 28min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Marc J Francis, Max Pugh

Documentary about the Plum Village monastic community in France, founded by Zen Master Thích Nhất Hạnh. Some may find the lack of story or explanation exasperating, but the overall approach is to lead the viewer to the point of understanding without preaching. It’s a thoughtful and persuasive invitation to a world of meditation.
