Madonna doesn't try to steal the show and consequently this turns out to be an excellent film. In 1943, with the males away fighting, The All American Girls' Professional Baseball League was formed to keep the National Baseball League running. Hanks is the real star as the cynical manager/coach who learns to love his team. A comic and touching story highlighting many of the contradictions that working women face. High slush factor. find out more...

An enjoyable adaption of Helen Fielding's bestselling book. We follow our heroine on her increasingly desperate search for someone to love who loves her right back and whose closet merely houses clothes rather than skeletons. 'Bridget Jones's Diary' is a fun and slick romantic comedy very much in the tradition of Notting Hill. find out more...

A blossoming friendship with the black gardener and a husband whose fallen in love with another man leave Cathy shunned by her friends and neighbours, her outwardly idylic world finally revealed for the sham that it is. Far from Heaven looks stunning, the recreation of the period nothing short of immaculate, but I have never been a fan of 1950s m find out more...
