JOHN WICK ★★★★

Keanu Reeves plays to his strengths as a strong, silent type (and former hitman) who mounts a mammoth revenge mission after some bad guys kill his puppy. Well, what else did they expect?

GOOD KILL ★★★★

Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, In Time) directs an intense, thought-provoking drama in which Ethan Hawke spends a 9-5 day piloting a drone from the comfort of his American military base, then returns home to his wife.

WOMAN IN GOLD ★★★

In this sentimental but touching true-story tale, Helen Mirren plays a Jewish woman who enlists the help of a handsome young lawyer (Ryan Reynolds) to help get back a priceless painting that was stolen from her family by the Nazis.

LOST RIVER ★★★

Ryan Gosling steps behind the camera and away from his heart-throb image for this surreal, disturbing and blackly comic film, in which former Doctor Who Matt Smith co-stars with Eva Mendes, Christina Hendricks and Iain De Caestecker.
