Centered on a striking performance from Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet, this engaging and powerful love story sees a young American-Italian boy who discovers the happiness and heartbreak of first love. A delightfully nuanced coming-of-age drama, the relationship it portrays is intimate and authentic. Critical acclamation and a staggering award haul tell you all you need to know; this one is a must-see.

Andy Serkis’ directorial debut is a touching dramatization of a real-life couple who refuse to allow illness to define their lives. Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy are outstanding leads, while the story itself manages to keep trite sentimentality out of the equation. An uplifting story about triumph over adversity and true love, we’d recommend keeping the Kleenex within easy reach for this one!

A timeless classic is given a thoroughly satisfying reboot with Kenneth Branagh both directing and assuming the starring role – no word on whether or not he made the tea on set as well! An extraordinary cast – Penelope Cruz, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Willem Dafoe among the galaxy of stars – bring Agatha Christie’s iconic story of Hercule Poirot’s sleuthing commute to life, and the story still holds up some 84 years later!

A twisty (and twisted!) thriller sees a pair of estranged siblings reuniting at a remote country home – before, you guessed it, things start getting altogether strange! It’s visually impressive, well acted, and the sense of unease is palpable; given director Justin Kelly’s remarkable resumé as a horror director, that’s hardly a shock – but there’s plenty to find in that department as the dark and deranged truth is revealed!

If sarcasm was a person, it would likely have the face of Aubrey Plaza – quite simply one of the finest exponents of subtle comedy on the planet. And, as an unhinged social media-obsessed stalker, she’s utterly fantastic in this blacker-than-black comedy where she infiltrates the world of an LA influencer played by Elizabeth Olsen. Unnervingly precise, it’s a skewering of the modern online world that delivers belly laughs and brilliant observations in perfect harmony.

Though it’s based on one of the more unusual events in modern sporting history, nobody should be surprised that this dramatisation of the Billie Jean King v Bobby Riggs tennis showdown is an absolute smash! Emma Stone and Steve Carell are excellent as the figures at the centre of the whole racket, and the witty script and sharp storytelling offer plenty of parallels to modern day – put simply, it’s ace!
