Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Can You Ever Forgive Me?
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 46min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Marielle Heller
  • Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Richard E. Grant, Dolly Wells

Lee Israel (McCarthy) is a writer facing financial difficulties who starts forging letters from famous writers as a way to earn money. McCarthy gives one of her best performances as the stubborn Lee, and Grant is excellent as her buddy Jack. Deviously funny and deeply moving.

Green Book

Green Book
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • Directed by: Peter Farrelly
  • Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini

Don Shirley (Ali), virtuoso pianist, is chauffeured around the American South in 1962 by his Italian-American driver Tony (Mortensen), and much learning ensues. It’s beautifully made and very worthy, but far too gentle and broad to be effective; Tony, rather than Don, is the heart of the story and it lacks bite.

If Beale Street Could Talk

If Beale Street Could Talk
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Barry Jenkins
  • Cast: KiKi Layne, Stephan James, Regina King

Tish (Layne) and Fonny (James) are friends since childhood who grow up to realise that they’re soulmates, but then Fonny gets arrested and charged with rape. Jenkins’s follow-up to Moonlight is an enchanting, heartbreaking love story, adapted from James Baldwin’s novel. A great film with anger in its tender heart.

The Raft

The Raft
  • 2018
  • Sweden / Denmark / US
  • 1h 37min
  • Directed by: Marcus Lindeen

A look at a 45-year-old experiment in which Mexican-Spanish anthropologist Santiago Genoves invited ten people to cross the Atlantic with him on a raft. Director Lindeen blends archive footage with modern-day reflections as surviving participants reminisce, in what makes for a complex moving show of disagreements and bonds. Fascinating.

Sing
  • 2016

  • Directed by: Garth Jennings
  • Written by: Garth Jennings
  • Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Tori Kelly, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton, Scarlett Johansson

Koala impresario Buster Moon (McConaughey) decides to save his ailing theatre with a singing competition. Most of the humour comes from cute critters singing occasionally inappropriate songs; the plot is spread far too thin and there no real surprises, but it ticks the usual boxes.
