EDDIE THE EAGLE ★★★★★

Not one to be held back by rejection, ridicule or NHS specs, ‘80s ski jumper Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards becomes the hero of a bona fide movie about his life starring Taron Egerton. Hugh Jackman plays his sportingly optimistic coach in a true underdog tale that delivers a feel-good rush.

VICTORIA ★★★★

Behold a near-miraculous feat as German film-maker Sebastian Schipper composes an entire heist film with zero edits. He had a role in 1998’s Run Lola Run, which must have given him the bright idea to have an ever-moving camera track a girl from a nightclub to a bank job. Kerching.
