CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR ★★★★

In one of Marvel’s finest action epics, Earth’s heroes are forced into a battle royale when Captain America and Iron Man fall out over government registration of the super powered. It’s chock-full of old and new characters (including a familiar web spinner) who populate a story that leaves no one unscathed.

GOLDEN YEARS ★★★

A group of OAPs get mad as hell and embark on a criminal spree in this amiable caper featuring a vintage cast of veteran thesps led by Bernard Hill and Born Free’s Virginia McKenna. It’s gentle stuff but the Hatton Garden heist proves it’s not a subject beyond the bounds of reason.

DEMOLITION ★★

Jake Gyllenhaal brings emotional fibre and class to a hit-and-miss drama about a widower struggling to find himself after his wife’s death. Naomi Watts and Chris Cooper ensure the star has stalwart support. 


SON OF SAUL ★★★★★

Deservedly showered with awards (including an Oscar and a Golden Globe), this Hungarian film about the Holocaust charts a Jewish father’s attempts to give a boy a proper burial while trying to survive the horrors of a Nazi death camp in the dying days of the War. Not for the faint-hearted but not to be missed.
