The Bookshop

The Bookshop
  • 2017
  • 1h 53min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Isabel Coixet
  • Cast: Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy, Patricia Clarkson

Florence (Mortimer) is a war widow who causes a stir in a 1950s Suffolk seaside town when she opens a bookshop. Like modern-day Brief Encounter, this adaptation of Penelope Fitzgerald’s novel is all unspoken sentiment which never descends into mawkishness. Restrained but quietly subversive.

Cold War
  • 2018

  • Directed by: Pawel Pawlikowski
  • Cast: Joanna Kulig, Tomasz Kot, Borys Szyc, Jeanne Balibar

In 1949 Poland, Wiktor (Kot) is given the job of starting a folk music and dance academy, where he falls for Zula (Kulig). Pawlikowski’s film, dedicated to his own parents, is shot in ravishing black and white and is a stunning love story, steeped in song and emotion and exquisitely crafted.

Rev Toller (Hawke) is an ailing priest at a First Reformed Church in upstate New York, who becomes concerned about despairing parishioner Michael (Ettinger) and his wife Mary (Seyfriend).

The Fulstow Boys

The Fulstow Boys

Based on a true story.

When the world’s press descended on a small village in Lincolnshire all hell broke loose.

Why doesn't the village have a war memorial, and what are they going to do about it? Determined to right a wrong that has been hanging over Fulstow since the First World War, the tenacious Nicola Pike leads the village committee to make a decision that threatens to tear the community apart.

Set across two time frames, this tale of a village’s monumental decision is both heart-breaking and hilarious.

Written and directed by Gordon Steel.

Gaslight

When her husband Jack is out on the town, Bella Manningham is terrorised by the sound of eerie footsteps in the empty flat above, or the mysterious flickering of the gaslight. Is she losing her mind? Are there perhaps dark secrets lurking in the corners of her home … or in her marriage? Written by Patrick Hamilton.

  • 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.

  • 2018
  • Germany / Belgium / UK / Italy
  • 1h 45min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Rupert Everett
  • Cast: Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, Emily Watson

The tale of the last days of Oscar Wilde (Everett), as he lives out his post-prison existence in France and Italy. If Firth and Watson are underused as pal Reggie Turner and wife Constance, they’re well-cast, and Everett himself, in his accomplished directorial debut, is sensational as the fallen star. A surprising and courageously unflattering portrait.

  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 5min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk

In this sequel to the 2004 original, Supers are still forbidden but Elastigirl (Hunter) gets to go up against a supervillain while husband Bob (Nelson) minds the kids. It looks great and the voice cast is excellent, but it feels dated and the set-pieces become tiring.

Sequel to the feel-good ABBA musical Mamma Mia! Despite its absurdities and shoe-horning of ABBA songs, at its heart is a touching mother-daughter love story and an irresistible esprit de corps.

Mary Shelley
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 2h

  • Directed by: Haifaa Al-Mansour
  • Cast: Elle Fanning, Maisie Williams, Douglas Booth, Ben Hardy

Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin (Fanning) meets her soulmate in poet Percy Shelley (Booth), skips off to the continent with he and her sister (Powley) and goes about writing her first novel, Frankenstein. Unassuming period drama, solidly crafted and absorbing but a little too respectful and tasteful to really come alive.

  • 1h 50min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gary Ross
  • Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter

Debbie Ocean (Bullock) sets in motion a plan to swipe a precious diamond necklace, and with pal Lou (Blanchett) puts together a gang of female crooks. The performances are great fun but Ross’s anonymous direction doesn’t add much, and it’s a bit let down by a needless subplot and unnecessary cameos.

Eric (Brydon) is a melancholy accountant in middle life who joins a synchronised swim team at his local pool. This ultra-low-budget offering has a game ensemble who work terrifically well as wisecracking comrades, and Riley as good as their tough coach. It may be The Full Monty with nose clips and goggles but it keeps afloat.

Clear-sighted, compassionate portrait of Whitney Houston, which derives its strength from the range of testimony it’s collected, from family members, surly former husband Brown, film co-stars and assorted siblings and loved ones. It reminds us of her thrilling, spine-tingling voice while bringing revelations that many of her troubles lay in childhood trauma.
