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...

BROOKLYN (2015)

Certification12 Our Rating

Good quality weepie about a young woman whose determination to make something of her life tears her away from the home and family she loves - only for fate (or circumstance) to throw her back into its familiar arms right at the wrong time. A sweet love story that hits all the right cues. A fine Sunday afternoon drama.

Brilliant, moving, funny and beautiful, a truly wonderful film. Bates is superb as the frustrated Alabama housewife, liberated by Tandy's tales of her childhood memories of the irrepressible Idgie and the demure Ruth. Their adventures will enchant and delight you. WATCH THIS FILM. Best of the year!! find out more...

A stunning dramatisation of the mesmerising life and ultimately tragic times of Edith Piaf, the ‘little sparrow'. The singer's life is beautifully evoked, as is the time, while Marion Cotillard in the central role is perfection. A moving and marvellous delight.....'Je ne regrette rien'. find out more...

It's 1950s America and recent graduate Katherine Watson has been employed by a prestigious, but archaic, girls' school as their new art history teacher. Katherine however is keen to teach way beyond the set curriculum, she feels it her duty to expand the minds of her repressed pupils and drag a reluctant social strata into the modern world. 'Mona Lisa Smile' is not unlike 'Dead Poets' Society', ruthlessly adept with the emotional manipulation, intense and earnest but head crunchingly shallow; yo find out more...

Ann is 23 with two young children, married to her high school love and, though life is poor and her job soulless, she is comfortable in the knowledge that there is still plenty of time to fulfil her dreams. A medical check-up, however, causes Ann's presumptions to collapse around her, but rather than wallow in self pity she decides to set about doing all the things she'd wanted, whilst putting in place a world for those she loves that will last long after the little time that is left to her.

It's not difficult to fall in love with the characters that Hirokazu Koreeda creates, nor the stunning world in which they live. Still, this is, for me, the most wonderful so far. The story is about four sisters living together and talking through the highs and lows of life, love and death. Time moves at the most staggeringly beautiful pace and wherever there is heartbreak there is solace in sisterhood. Family meals, late night conversation, the promise and charm of find out more...

Streep and MacLaine give riveting portrayals as the celebrity mother and daughter, who, more alike than they think, battle against both each other and the alcohol and drug induced haze of Hollywood. Supposedly based on the true-life traumas of actress Carrie Fisher and her mum Debbie Reynolds and adapted from Fisher's semi-autobiographical novel. 9 out of 9. find out more...
