Tale of Tales

There was already something wonderfully weird and carnivalesque about Italian filmmaker Matteo Garrone's past films about the Naples mafiosi ('Gomorrah') and our modern yearning for celebrity ('Reality'). Now, the director has let his circus ringmaster's instinct flower...

X+Y

At the core of this tender-hearted and moving British indie film is a fascinating relationship between a single mum, Julie (played by the superb Sally Hawkins), and her autistic teenage son, Nathan – played with equal smarts and insight by the young actor Asa Butterfield...

Entourage

Once upon a time on TV, the saga of rising star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) and the trio of chauvinistic halfwits clinging to his coattails was able to blossom into a fable about how loyalty breeds success. But in 2015, bros only come before hos alphabetically...

Unfriended

‘Unfriended’ takes place entirely on one teenager’s very busy laptop screen. That’s where we all live now, so why not? It’s a horror film, which is to say bad things will happen. But parents might find it scary from the first jittery moment...
