An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 38min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bonni Cohen, Jon Shenk
  • Cast: Al Gore, Barack Obama, Donald J. Trump

Eleven years after the original film, this is a fly-on-the-wall portrait of the Big Daddy of global environmentalism going about his work. Gore comes across as a charming and savvy negotiator, funny, empathetic and passionate. An inspiring call to people to exercise their power.

The Beguiled
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sofia Coppola
  • Cast: Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning

John McBurney (Farrell) is a wounded Union deserter in the US Civil War who winds up in a school for girls, where headmistress Martha (Kidman) is persuaded to show him kindness. Coppola’s remake of Don Siegel’s sweaty 1971 original plays like meticulously crafted high-camp melodrama; intermittently enjoyable, but rushed and flustered.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 29min
  • PG
  • Directed by: David Soren
  • Cast: Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch, Ed Helms

Animated superhero comedy based on the bestselling book series by Dav Pilkey. This is a film that sides with the kids, right down to its sly jabs at uncaring, cash-starved school systems and loose message about the value of laughing at yourself; and, of course, at the mere existence of a planet called Uranus.

Cars 3
  • 2017

  • Directed by: Brian Fee
  • Cast: Armie Hammer, Nathan Fillion, Owen Wilson, Kerry Washington

Lightning (Wilson) is challenged by new car on the block, Jackson Storm (Hammer). The least interesting Pixar franchise rumbles on in a rudimentary cash-grab which is basically a training montage in search of a story, and Randy Newman’s score can’t save it from being a dull lunge for the finish line.

Dunkirk

Dunkirk
  • 2017
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Written by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles

Survival story set during the battle of Dunkirk in WWII. The younger cast members acquit themselves admirably, including pop star Harry Styles; and, in its uncomfortable depiction of frightened men looking to save their own skin, this is far from straightforwardly patriotic fare. As he delivers non-stop visual audacity, once again Nolan shows himself to be a master of pure cinema.

England Is Mine

  • Directed by: Mark Gill
  • Cast: Jessica Brown Findlay, Jodie Comer, Jack Lowden

Manchester, 1976: Steven Patrick Morrissey (Jack Lowden) impatiently waits for his genius to be uncovered. Lowden shows some stage presence but this unauthorised biopic of the Smiths frontman has little to say and features none of the band's iconic music.

  • Directed by: Stanley Tucci
  • Cast: Geoffrey Rush, Armie Hammer, Clémence Poésy

American writer James Lord (Hammer) poses for a portrait by legendary painter and sculptor Alberto Giacometti (Rush), but regrets it as the deadline is extended beyond absurdity. Delightfully playful examination of the artist-subject relationship, and both Rush and Hammer are perfectly cast as the curmudgeonly master and his impeccably polite sitter.

The Last Word
  • 2017

  • Directed by: Mark Pellington
  • Cast: Shirley MacLaine, Amanda Seyfried, AnnJewel Lee Dixon

Control freak businesswoman Harriet Lauler (MacLaine) is concerned about her legacy, so demands that young journalist Anne (Seyfried) write her obituary in advance. Entirely predictable on every level, yet MacLaine’s energy, commitment and sheer star power makes you care about Harriet and give the film the benefit of the doubt.

  • 1h 56min

  • Directed by: Hannes Holm
  • Cast: Rolf Lassgård, Bahar Pars, Zozan Akgün, Tobias Almborg

Ove ( Lassgård) is an ageing, widowed grump who’s the self-appointed prefect of a small community; his attempts at suicide are continually frustrated by his new neighbours, mouthy Iranian immigrant Parvaneh (Pars) and her family. Shamelessly feelgood, with a welcome streak of black comedy, it’s predictable but heartwarming.

  • Cast: Ethan Hawke, Sally Hawkins, Kari Matchett

The story of Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis (Hawkins), who became famous for her simple but cheerful landscapes and pictures of flora and fauna. Hawkins is stunning as the meek and stooped Maud, who battles through her difficult home life and painful arthritis to something like triumph.

  • Directed by: Leopoldo Aguilar
  • Cast: Fiona Hardingham, Roger Jackson, Jenifer Beth Kaplan

Manic, simplistic and never especially funny, Monster Island is a plucky attempt that is unlikely to cause any sleepless nights for Despicable Me 3 or Captain Underpants. However, the ghoulish tone might just make it a primer for younger viewers hoping to graduate to the worlds of Tim Burton and Henry Selick.

The Odyssey

The Odyssey
  • 2016
  • France
  • 2h 2min
  • Directed by: Jérôme Salle
  • Cast: Lambert Wilson, Pierre Niney, Audrey Tautou

Biopic of underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau (Wilson), focusing on his strained relationship with his son. It looks fantastic, but becomes bogged down in soap opera conventions and biopic cliché, with characters such as Cousteau’s long-suffering wife Simone (Tautou) pushed to the sidelines.
