  • Directed by: Sophie Hyde
  • Cast: Holliday Grainger, Alia Shawkat, Fra Fee

Laura (Grainger) and her friend Tyler (Shawkat) are flatmates either side of 30, negotiating transitions in their lives. Unsworth adapts her own novel and Hyde’s gently interrogatory style lends intimacy and buoyancy to the proceeding. A funny and authentic portrait of two sexually confident but otherwise confused women.

Blinded by the Light

Blinded by the Light
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 54min
  • Directed by: Gurinder Chadha
  • Cast: Viveik Kalra, Kulvinder Ghir, Meera Ganatra

In 1982 Luton, Javed (Kalra) is a misfit who struggles to relate to family, neighbours and girls until he discovers the music of Bruce Springsteen. A joyful musical comedy about how music connects people; if it sometimes feels forced, and isn’t going to win prizes for subtlety, it’s still uplifting fun.

It Chapter Two

It Chapter Two
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 50min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Andy Muschietti
  • Cast: James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Skarsgård, Bill Hader

Twenty-seven years after the events of the first film, the town experiences a series of attacks, causing the Losers to reunite. Darker-toned than the first one, it has an impactful story about friendship and buried secrets and if the repetitive CGI lose their impact, there are still surprises in store.

The Lion King

The Lion King
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 58min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Cast: Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, James Earl Jones

The photorealistic version of the beloved Disney story has memorable visuals, impressive set-pieces and adorable yet credible animals, but precisely because they’re so realistic, it’s weird when they speak and even stranger when they sing. All the star voices in the world don’t count when you can’t simulate heart and soul.

  • PG
  • Directed by: Terry Gilliam
  • Written by: Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin
  • Cast: John Cleese, Sean Connery, Shelley Duvall, Ralph Richardson, Katherine Helmond, Ian Holm, Michael Palin, David Warner

A young boy (Craig Warnock) is escorted through time and space by a band of dwarves, meeting legendary heroes along the way before a final confrontation between good and evil. Imaginitive comic fantasy on a modest budget, but a series of witty guest spots and Gilliam's richly detailed screen style win the day.
