Beast

★★★★ - The Guardian  - Fairytale meets psycho thriller as rising stars Jessie Buckley and Johnny Flynn find that opposites attract.  The Channel Islands become home to something eerie in this Jersey-set debut feature from writer-director Michael Pearce. Charting a turbulent relationship between a...

Beast

★★★★ - Stuff  - A chilling thriller that boasts two charismatic performances - A member of the local choir and a historical guide for tourists, Jersey resident Moll Huntford (Jessie Buckley) has always been considered special. She thinks it might be for striking ginger-haired looks, but, as her...

Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot

★★★½ - Rolling Stone  - Joaquin Phoenix and director Gus Van Sant turn a biopic of quadriplegic cartoonist John Callahan into something tender, unique. On the surface, it sounds like one of those true-life, triumph-over-adversity tearjerkers that Hollywood spoon-feeds folks with numbing frequency....

The House With A Clock in its Walls

★★★★½ - Stuff - Who knew that the director who once gave the world Hostel Part II could conjure up on the most magical family fantasies in years? Eli Roth certainly wouldn’t have been everybody’s first choice to direct this adaptation of John Bellair’s much-loved 1973 book and yet he’s managed a...

RBG

★★★★½ - The Dominion Post  - Ruth Bader Ginsberg is one of the most formidable and influential legal minds to have occupied the American judicial landscape in the 20th and 21st centuries.  That she has now also become a pop-culture icon, a series of memes, the subject a couple of fantastic murals...

Ladies in Black

★★★★½ - STUFF We're in Sydney. The year is 1959 and suburban Australia is in a mild spasm of lace-curtain twitching over the "refos" – refugees – who have recently fled war-ruined Europe for this promised land in the South, bringing with them such horrors as food with flavour, men who cook,...

Ladies in Black

★★★★ - THE AGE Bruce Beresford presents a puzzle to those who look for consistent patterns: what could unify a career that spans the whole history of modern Australian cinema? Part of the answer is suggested by the title of one of his recognised classics, the Henry Handel Richardson adaptation Th...

Christopher Robin

★★★★ - SYDNEY MORNING HERALD Winnie-the-Pooh doesn't have hyphens any more. Disney took them out when they bought most of the rights to A. A. Milne's stories and characters in 1961, five years after the English author's death. Most of us think of Mickey Mouse as the company's most famous...

A Simple Favour

★★★★½ - DOMINION POST  - Whether it’s last-minute brownies, school pyjama day or newborn visiting etiquette – Stephanie Smothers (Anna Kendrick) has handy hints for them all. But the aspiring mummy vlogger’s endless upbeatness hasn’t impressed many of the other parents with first graders at...

McKellen

★★★★ - EMPIRE  - At the age of 78, Ian McKellen looks back on his life, both professional and private. He talks of growing up in Wigan and developing a love for the stage, as well as the complicated path he had as a gay man in a changing society and becoming a film star well after he imagined it...

McQueen

★★★★ - TIME OUT  - Fashion world bad boy Alexander McQueen makes for an attention-grabbing subject for this insightful doc.  - Alexander McQueen was fashion’s bad boy done good. Born Lee Alexander McQueen (he dropped ‘Lee’ because Alexander ‘sounded posher’), he was the son of an East End cabby...

Spitfire

★★★★ - THE TELEGRAPH  - “There are some people who’d rather have a flight in a Spitfire than spend their pension money on a Jag,” a 99-year-old pilot points out in David Fairhead and Ant Palmer’s lyrical documentary. Narrated by Charles Dance, this is a film that will thrill those people – but it’s...
