MAD MAX: FURY ROAD ★★★★
Tom Hardy cements his hardman image with a gloriously exciting reboot of the Aussie road warrior franchise. The action is spectacular, and the impressive cast also includes Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult.
This sugary yarn set in 1945 is a kind of Cinderella in reverse as teenage princesses Margaret and Elizabeth take to the streets – and mingle with the commoners – to celebrate VE Day.
PITCH PERFECT 2 ★★★
It’s not as good as the original but this sequel, which follows the a cappella adventures of Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson as they enter an international singing contest, has enough fun moments and musical interludes to appeal.
CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA ★★★★
There are outstanding performances from Juliette Binoche (as a movie star struggling with getting older) and Kristen Stewart (as her long-suffering assistant) in this intriguing and thoughtful drama.
