Far-From-the-Madding-Crowd-Poster SmallFar From the Madding Crowd

Director: Thomas Vinterberg

Stars: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen and Tom Sturridge

Carey Mulligan shines in this adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s novel, depicting the plight of an independent woman in rural Victorian England.  Despite having to reduce the plot to fit a two-hour movie, it fully captures the essence of the book and its iconic characters, and the cinematography is stunning. Not just for lovers of period drama.

TRASH_One-Sheet SmallTrash

Directors: Stephen Daldry, Christian Duurvoort

Stars: Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen

Another adaptation, this time from Andy Mulligan’s book for young adults, featuring two boys from the slums of Rio de Janeiro who find a wallet in their local trash dump which sets them on a risky adventure.  Director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Reader) doesn’t shy away from showing the poverty and harshness of street life, but captures the beauty of the wasteland in a tense, exciting and ultimately life-affirming story.

Mr-Holmes-Movie-Poster-SmallMr Holmes

Director: Bill Condon

Stars: Ian McKellen, Laura Linney

Is there anyone better suited to playing an aged Sherlock Holmes than Ian McKellen? (Answer, probably not.)  In 1947 the retired consulting detective is haunted by an unsolved, 50-year old case, but his powers are declining and his once brilliant mind is not what it was. The mystery unfolds via flashbacks. This is a wistful, witty character study rather than an action movie, which examines the differences between fiction and reality, memory and truth.

Certificate PG, 104 minutes, drama, mystery
