What we know

Rom-dram (er, romantic drama) where Kate Winslet plays a landscape designer who goes to work at Versailles.

What the critics say

  • “Winslet isn’t stretched in the lead role but she brings grit and determination to her trendsetter.” - Warrington Guardian
  • “Like many actors stepping behind the camera, Rickman is unstintingly generous with his leads, although the movie built around them isn’t always so assured” - SMH

What’s it rated?

RottenTomatoes: 5.8/10

IMDB: 6.6/10

What we know

Critically lauded film starring Irish actor Jack Reynor as a taxi driver, and his Toni Collette as his alcoholic mother.

What the critics say

  • “Several close-ups of Reynor’s face as he beams with love or is fraught with worry for Kit, Shane or Jean tell the rest of the story and confirm the actor’s impressive talent for conveying emotions without using words.” - The Hollywood Reporter

Child 44

What we know

Tom Hardy sports an awful accent to play a Russian police agent who’s trying to figure out how his son died.

What the critics say

  • “There’s artistry here, too; one edit that cuts from the squeal of a train’s brakes to the screams of children sends a shiver down the spine.” - Gamesradar
  • “This cartoonish portrayal of 1953 Soviet Russia in the year that Stalin died is, as I say in my video review above, a throwback to the paranoid portrayals we saw of that country throughout the Cold War.” - Deadline
