Interstellar, Say When, Leviathan: this week’s cinema releases reviewed

Matthew McConaughey is out of this world, Keira Knightley refuses to grow up, and a Russian man engages in a David and Goliath battle

INTERSTELLAR ★★★★

Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan goes out of this world with his latest epic, a sci-fi blockbuster that’s both intelligent and emotional. Matthew McConaughey stars as a father and pilot who must risk everything to explore the universe, alongside scientist Anne Hathaway.

SAY WHEN ★★★

Keira Knightley is the girl who won’t grow up in a quirky romcom that sees her as a 20-something slacker who tries to relive her youth when she befriends teenager Chloë Grace Moretz.


LEVIATHAN ★★★★★

Masterful and incisive Russian drama that examines the country’s current political situation through the story of an ordinary man who comes into conflict with the town Mayor.


THE SKELETON TWINS ★★★★

Comedians Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) and Bill Hader (Superbad) turn down the funny for this bittersweet tale. They play an estranged brother and sister who attempt to patch up their relationship.


THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS ★★★★

Moving and artistic documentary about musician Edwyn Collins, who suffered a brain haemorrhage in 2005 but eventually managed to return to making music.
