If I Stay

  • Rated as: 3/5

First love always feels like a matter of life and death. But it really is for Portland teenager Mia (Chloë Moretz, Hit Girl in ‘Kick-Ass’) in this adaptation of Gayle Forman’s bestselling young-adult novel. We find the budding classical cellist as her relationship with rocker Adam…

A Most Wanted Man

  • Rated as: 3/5

He’s pasty-faced, overweight, miserable and existing on a diet of booze. Watching Philip Seymour Hoffman play Günther Bachmann, a German intelligence agent at the heart of this John le Carré adaptation, it’s hard to banish thoughts about the tragic death…

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

  • Rated as: 2/5

Meaty fists connect with faces, guns explode like nukes and panes of glass don't have a chance of maintaining structural integrity – yet for all of the amplified destruction of Robert Rodriguez’s action sequel to 2005’s ‘Sin City’, it never impresses. Why is it such a snooze?…

Pride

  • Rated as: 5/5

It’s the holy grail for filmmakers: to tell a story with something to say about our world that is also shamelessly entertaining, moving and funny. ‘Pride’ recalls how a small group of gay activists took a trip from London to rural South Wales in 1984 to lend their support to…

Shirley: Visions of Reality

The life of a fictional actress (Stephanie Cumming) and the paintings of Edward Hopper illustrate 30 years of American history.

Miss Julie

She’s best known as Ingmar Bergman’s favourite actress, appearing in many of the Swedish master’s films including ‘Persona’, ‘Autumn Sonata’ and ‘Cries and Whispers’. But Liv Ullmann also has a successful career as a director, from 1992’s heartfelt ‘Sofie’ to 2000’s ‘Faithless’, scripted by Bergman. An adaptation of the Strindberg play…

The Hundred-Foot Journey

  • Rated as: 3/5

If you catch whiffs of ‘Chocolat’, you’re not imagining them: this middlebrow culture-clash foodie fable, based on a novel by Richard C Morais, shares more than just a director with that Juliette Binoche confection from 2000. There’s also the quaint, postcard-ready…

Sex Tape

  • Rated as: 2/5

A tired premise and a sheen of desperation tanks this limp comedy, which plays more like a saucy seaside postcard than a fully-fledged movie. Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz had unexpected, sharp-tongued chemistry in 2011’s ‘Bad Teacher’; here, they sag into married stasis as an exhausted two-kid…
