    ‘The Voices’ is an ecstatically deranged, pitch-black comedy about a lovable murderer named Jerry (Ryan Reynolds). We also meet the cat who thinks Jerry should kill his colleagues and the sleepy mutt who disagrees (both voiced by Reynolds). It’s t...

    According to Hollywood legend, the Oscars banned animals from being eligible for Best Actor after German shepherd Rin Tin Tin won most votes in 1929. That won’t sound so ridiculous if you watch this powerful Hungarian drama featuring the Al Pacino...

    Cinema doesn’t come much more exuberant, musical and raw than French-Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan’s ‘Mommy’. It’s the tale of a wild, gurning teen, Steve (Antoine-Olivier Pilon), an angel face hiding devilish deeds. Steve has severe ADHD, which...

    You know him as a surly lunk of slab-faced Aussie manhood. But Russell Crowe shows his squishy side as the director of this soft-hearted war melodrama. He also stars as Connor, a farmer whose three sons are missing presumed dead on the WWI battlef...

    ‘A Little Chaos’ is, you imagine, what Alan Titchmarsh might dream about after watching ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’. Kate Winslet plays a pioneering seventeenth-century gardener in the French court of Louis XIV, and she’s the best thing about the film....

    A silver fox for a silver crowd: Richard Gere is the magic card up the filmmakers’ sleeve for this warm if rambling sequel to the 2011 hit ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’. Novelist Deborah Moggach only ever wrote one book about a ramshackle India...
