Dir. J A Bayona, US, 2016

Splendid melodrama of a boy who seeks the help of a tree monster to cope with his single mother's terminal illness. Great performances in a deeply affecting movie that brings a lump to the throat. Partly filmed around Marsden.

Dir. Taika Waititi NZ, 2016

There are moments of pure magic in this New Zealand-based comedy drama about a national manhunt for a rebellious kid and his foster uncle played by Sam Neil. An oddball treat that both critics and audiences love.

Dir. Ralph Thomas, UK, 1962

 

Real life friends, Manchester's 20 year-old Ian McShane ('a real discovery') and 21 year-old John Hurt ('a sensitive roommate'), make their film debuts in this early sixties drama about students and their lives in a provincial University (Lincoln). Tame now but entertaining.

THE HEIRESSES

 

Another great award-winner from this year. Financial problems hit a wealthy female couple and the ensuring problems create a personal revolution for Ana Brun in a truly mesmerising performance. A quiet film of restlessness, beautifully observed beneath which is an ocean of emotion.

My Favourite Film: Keiran Hodgson introduces Danton

 

Holmfirth's own comedic actor introduces what Stanley Kubrick called the 'Best historical drama ever made'.

 

The last weeks of one of the leaders of the French Revolution, George Danton, brilliantly played by Gerard Depardieu, and his battle with Robespierre in what is an overwhelming indictment of government oppression. The great Polish director created an Oscar winning film that still today, holds a mirror to the past and to the present.

An impassioned film about much more than journalism. At its centre is a fine performance from Rosamund Pike as the celebrated, complex, forceful but flawed war correspondent Marie Colvin whose humanity shines through amidst the utter destruction of the many conflicts she covered.

Superb performances from John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan as the aging comedy duo who attempt to reignite their failing career with a tour of British variety clubs in 1953. A real delight with genuinely touching moments.
