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.

Highlander

Highlander
  • 1986
  • UK/US
  • 1h 50min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Russell Mulcahy
  • Cast: Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery, Clancy Brown, Roxanne Hart

A handful of immortals battle through the centuries to win a mythical prize. A curious mixture of romance in 16th century heather and car chases in present day New York, the film is an inelegant, often ludicrous, but enjoyably daffy adventure. Lambert seems more at home with the contemporary passages and only the ever wonderful Connery has the requisite style for the kitsch Scottish scenes.

In Bruges

In Bruges
  • 2008
  • UK/Belgium
  • 1h 47min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Martin McDonagh
  • Written by: Martin McDonagh
  • Cast: Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Ralph Fiennes, Clémence Poésy

Two gobby Dublin criminals bide their time in Bruges, awating instruction from their cryptic and remote gangster boss Harry. Irish playwright McDonagh, in his feature debut, which wrestles some affecting moments from demonstrative characters, nicely teases out the parallels between the trio and Beckett's Vladimir, Estragon and Godot.

The Post

The Post
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 56min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Sarah Paulson

The story of how the Washington Post, led by its publisher Katherine Graham (Streep) and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), got the chance to print devastating revelations about US involvement in Vietnam. An old-fashioned Hollywood showstopper with a stellar supporting cast, and sizeable if predictable performances from the leads.

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.

Wonder

Wonder
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 53min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stephen Chbosky
  • Cast: Julia Roberts, Jacob Tremblay, Owen Wilson

Auggie Pullman (Tremblay) has endured over 27 operations to correct his facial abnormalities and is at last going to school, to his parents’ concern. Chbosky manages to pluck your heartstrings without coating the story in sugar, thanks in part to the excellent work of Tremblay, Robert and Wilson.
