A profound, detail-perfect and soulful slice of American family life, with some of the year’s most sincere performances to date. Terri White, Empire
A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to a tiny Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.
Judas & The Black Messiah (15)
A powerful, and candidly sympathetic, political biography with contemporary relevance. Joe Mordenstern, Wall Street Journal
Fred Hampton, played by BAFTA award winning Daniel Kaluuya, is a young, charismatic activist, becomes Chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party – putting him directly in the crosshairs of the government, the FBI, and the Chicago Police. But to destroy the revolution, the authorities are going to need a man on the inside.
First Cow (12A)
There’s something about the delicacy and modesty of what Reichardt is doing here that feels unique, even as she’s transporting you back to a primordial, partially untapped USA. David Fear, Rolling Stone
A loner and cook (John Magaro) has travelled west and joined a group of fur trappers in Oregon Territory, though he only finds connection with a Chinese immigrant (Orion Lee). The men collaborate on a business, although its longevity is reliant upon the participation of a wealthy landowner’s prized milking cow.
Rare Beasts (15)
There’s something alluring about the relish with which Piper and Bill sink their teeth into the gleefully overwrought script, particularly during the putative couple’s verbal sparring matches, during which deadpan sparks fly. Mark Jermode, The Guardian
Billie Piper’s directorial debut is an anti rom-com about Mandy, a career-driven single mother. She falls in love with the charming, traditionalist Pete who comes with his own troubles. Rare Beasts is a sharp frantic and witty film which highlights Piper’s ambitions as a film maker.
