RUN ALL NIGHT (15)
★★★

Having sparked the trend for “geriaction” films with Taken back in 2008, Liam Neeson is still going in Run All Night. He’s killed a lot of people, but he’s also in reflective mood, weighing up his past sins against the danger now faced by his estranged son. He will find you…

THE WATER DIVINER (15)
★★★

Russell Crowe ventures behind the camera as well as starring in this dewy-eyed drama set a few years after the First World War massacre at Gallipoli. Crowe plays a father looking for the remains of his three sons and falls in love with Olga Kurylenko along the way.

Formats: DVD, Blu-ray and download at amazon.co.uk


GET HARD (15)
★★★

Will Ferrell muses on the rigours of life in confinement in an existentialist story with undertones of Bergman… Okay, okay, so it’s just a bit of dumb fun with Ferrell playing a rich, racist idiot getting prepped for jail-time by a put-upon Kevin Hart. Go on, enjoy yourself.

Formats: DVD, Blu-ray and download at amazon.co.uk


GLASSLAND (15)
★★★★

If laughing at Get Hard makes you feel a little bit guilty then make up for it by watching this soul-searching drama. Up-and-comer Jack Reynor gets mixed up in human trafficking as he tries to rescue his mum, Toni Collette, from the depths of the demon bottle. Go on, cleanse your soul.

Formats: DVD, Blu-ray and download at amazon.co.uk


SHE’S FUNNY THAT WAY (12)
★★

If you love old screwball rom-coms and Woody Allen, you may want to check out writer/director Peter Bogdanovich’s latest work. Owen Wilson, Imogen Poots and Jennifer Aniston are among the ensemble as typically neurotic New Yorkers caught in relationship tangles. In a word, kooky.
