- 1h 55min
- Directed by: Blake Edwards
- Cast: Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard, Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen
'How do I look?' asks original waif Hepburn in the role of borderline schizophrenic Holly Golightly. 'Very good, I must say I'm amazed,' replies Peppard in the role of frustrated writer and part-time gigolo Paul Varjak in this adaptation from the novel by Truman Capote. The iconic Hepburn has never made neurosis look so good, and while the film may have numerous redeeming features (not least the exquisite cinematography by Franz F Plane and the swinging soundtrack by Henry Mancini), it is she who remains responsible for making it such a well-loved classic.

- 2h 24min
- Directed by: Martin Campbell
- Written by: Ian Fleming
- Cast: Daniel Craig, Eva Green, Mads Mikkelsen, Judi Dench
The prequel to the other Bond films time warps back to the enduring action hero becoming a 00 licensed to kill. The latest Bond (Craig) proves to be a strong leading man, but the film is let down by trying to do too much. With a weak villain and Bond girl to boot, it doesn't really feel like a Bond film at all.
Fri 20 Jul
- 1h 48min
- Directed by: Baz Luhrmann
- Written by: Baz Luhrmann, Craig Pearce
- Cast: Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor, Jim Broadbent, Richard Roxburgh, John Leguizamo, Jacek Koman, Caroline O'Connor
Luhrmann's celebration of Montmartre is a delirious jukebox musical, mashing up Labelle with Nirvana and generally playing out like La traviata on steroids. Gloriously extravagant if you're in the mood, possibly overheated if you're not, it's a suitably over-the-top climax to its director's Red Curtain trilogy.
