Director: Pablo Larraín. USA/Chile/France 2016. 100 mins. | Watch the trailer
Seamlessly making his English-language debut, director Larraín (No) presents an intimate and quietly harrowing study of the week following the assassination of John F. Kennedy, as seen through the eyes of his widow (Natalie Portman, hotly tipped for an Oscar).
La La Land (12A)
Director: Damien Chazelle. USA 2017. 128 mins. | Watch the trailer
A tribute to the Hollywood musical, but with a story embedded in present-day Los Angeles life, Chazelle’s La La Land is nothing short of a triumph. The transition from musical numbers to the powerful narrative is seamless, and Gosling and Stone give winning performances in this bewitching romance. Contains infrequent strong language.
Director: Barry Jenkins. USA 2016. 111 mins. | Watch the trailer
Never less than riveting, Moonlight is the story of an African-American gay man growing up in a USA that is perhaps even more intolerant than ever. Three different actors brilliantly portray the same character at different ages.
Directors: Garth Jennings, Christophe Lourdelet. USA 2016. 108 mins. | Watch the trailer
In an attempt to save his theatre, koala bear and impresario Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) dreams up a talent contest for animal performers. The result is a wildly funny, beautifully realised animation with a starry voice cast, witty subplots and great, great music.
The LEGO Batman Movie (U)
Director: Chris McKay. USA/Denmark 2017. TBC mins.| Watch the trailer
A spin-off from The Lego Movie, this is a tongue-in-cheek take on the Caped Crusader, told entirely by meticulously computer-animated Lego. At heart it is a father-son story about playboy Bruce Wayne/Batman (a growly voiced Arnett) and the wide-eyed orphan (Cera) he grudgingly takes under his wing.
Director: Denzel Washington. USA 2016. 139 mins. | Watch the trailer
Troy (Denzel Washington) and Rose (Viola Davis) are the parents of three troubled boys in 1950s Pittsburgh. There’s much wit and affection in this adaptation of the Tony Award-winning play, a hard-edged family drama about secrets and buried emotions. Contains outdated use of racist language.
Manchester By The Sea (15)
Director: Kenneth Lonergan. USA 2016. 137 mins | Watch the trailer
When lonely janitor Lee (Casey Affleck) hears that his brother has died, he reluctantly heads to his home town, Manchester By The Sea, where he must finally face up to his own past. One of the must-see dramas of awards season, articulating profound themes of grief, anger and forgiveness.
Director: Garth Davis. Australia/UK/USA 2016. 118 mins. | Watch the trailer
Five-year-old Indian Saroo gets adopted and starts a new life in Australia. Twenty-five years later, the grown-up Saroo (Dev Patel) goes in search of his mother. This emotionally charged film is based on a true story.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (12a)
Director: Gareth Edwards. USA 2016. 134 mins| Watch the trailer
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
Hidden Figures (PG)
Director: Theodore Melfi. USA 2016. 127 mins | Watch the trailer
Without three gifted mathematicians, America might not have put its first man into space in 1961. That they were also female and black in a country where racial segregation still had a sour normalcy only adds piquancy to the story. Hidden Figures deftly avoids clichéd melodrama to celebrate amazing achievements in a society in the throes of change.
Toni Erdmann (15)
Director: Maren Ade. Germany/Austria 2016. 162 mins. German with English subtitles. | Watch the trailer
Winfried doesn’t see much of his working daughter Ines. He pays her a surprise visit in Bucharest, where she’s busy as a corporate strategist. The geographical change doesn’t help them to see more eye to eye. Practical joker Winfried annoys his daughter with corny pranks and jabs at her routine lifestyle of meetings and paperwork. Father and daughter reach an impasse, and Winfried agrees to go home to Germany. Enter Toni Erdmann: Winfried’s flashy alter ego. Disguised in a tacky suit, weird wig and fake teeth, Toni barges into Ines’ work circle, claiming to be her CEO’s life coach. As Toni, Winfried doesn’t hold back, and Ines meets the challenge. The harder they push, the closer they become. In all the madness, Ines begins to see that her eccentric father deserves a place in her life.
Viceroy’s House (12a)
Director: Gurinder Chadha. UK/India 2017. 106 mins. | Watch the trailer
Hugh Bonneville and Gillian Anderson play Lord and Lady Mountbatten, charged by King George VI to oversee the peaceful transition of power from Britain to the India it had ruled for 300 years. Set in the Viceroy’s House in Delhi, drama escalates as the Mountbattens struggle to manage both the hundreds of servants under their care and the conflicts that emerge over the birth of a newly independent nation. Hindu, Sikh and Muslim differences threaten to overwhelm them, and Edwina Mountbatten, in particular, finds her well-intentioned efforts often sorely misplaced. Co-writer/director Gurinder Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham) has a deep understanding of the conflict which caused hundreds of thousands of deaths following the botched partition process, though the emphasis of her often deeply moving film is here on the Mountbattens’ personal lives.
