Our reviewer Maysa Moncao saw an early screening of this film at the recent TIFF15 and had nothing but good things to say about it in her review. Johnny Depp leads in this 1970’s Boston gangster thriller, with Joel Egerton and Benedict Cumberbatch. See the official Warners website. Showing all over the UK, after preview screenings this weekend. Find Any Film should help locate where.

There’s been a little buzz in the media about this Todd Haynes drama, making much of the lesbian sex scene between stars Cate Blanchet and Rooney Mara. As with Haynes’ Far From Heaven (2002) there is a gay/coming out theme, it is a 1950’s set film and it looks exquisitely beautiful, but instead of the husband (Dennis Quaid) unveiling themselves as a homosexual, this time it is the wife (Blanchett). See the official website for more including the trailer. It will be screening across a selection of UK-wide cinemas. See Find Any Film for your nearest one.

For the review, see Maysa Moncao’s take on it.

As part of the BFI’s LOVE season, this multi-Oscar winning blockbuster from 1965 is given a dusting off for a fairly broad key cities only UK release. Omar Sharif is the titular poetry writing medical man whose tangled personal life envelops those around him as the Russian Revolution erupts on a wider scale.

The Good DinosaurGood-Dinosaur poster

Good Lord, Disney need a website that gives more info than a trailer! Thankfully, there is a Facebook page for this film, the 16th offering from the Pixar studio. The movie looks at what would have happened to the world if the cataclysmic asteroid which wiped out the dinosaurs had never struck the earth and these mighty animals had never become extinct. Showing at just about every cinema anywhere near to you.

Swedish drama in which we get to know Stella, a willful girl entering her teens. She looks up to her older sister who succeeds in everything. But Stella’s love and admiration for her sister is put to the test when she understands that her sister is hiding something that will change their family. See the official Tumblr site for more; showing at key cities only so you will probably see Find Any Film as being useful in locating where you can watch this.

And the new films released in the UK from Tuesday 1 December…

Christmas With the Cooperschristmas-with-the-coopers-poster

A star cast, including Diane Keaton, John Goodman and Amanda Seyfried star in a film that is more traditional in America than Thanksgiving – the festive season movie. Even here in the stuffy ole UK, we can go gaga over American sentimentality.

So, in what may become a new genre in cinema, four generations of the Cooper clan come together for their annual Christmas Eve celebration. But a series of unexpected visitors and unlikely events turn the night upside down, leading them to a surprising rediscovery of family bonds and the spirit of the holiday.

Anything with Diane Keaton is at least worth a sneaky peak, which won’t b difficult as this should be screened just about everywhere. See the official Facebook page for more.

And the new films released in the UK from Thursday 3 December…

Victor Frankensteinvictor-frankenstein-poster

Literally, I am massively excited about this film coming out.

Am I silly? Deranged? Overly hopeful?

Tish and pish! It’s a modern update of Shelley’s novel, and any film version should be enjoyed, so…I will enjoy it! Told this time from the perspective of the titular God-complex scientist’s deformed servant Igor (Daniel Radcliffe), we look at how Frankenstein creates the hides monster he unleashes on the world. Jessica Brown-Findlay from Downton Abbey co-stars.

Showing everywhere, see the official Facebook page for more.
