Gay and lesbian activists and South Wales miners make the unlikeliest of allies in this feelgood movie focused around the 1984 coal strike. Politically motivated Mark (Ben Schnetzer) forms the Lesbian and Gays Support the Miners group but fails to land the support of the National Union of Mineworkers. So he heads off to the Welsh Dulais colliery and wins over their leader Dai (Paddy Considine) and poetry-loving ex miner (Bill Nighy). Sharp, sassy and very funny, this joins that revered company of industrial British movies Brassed Off and The Full Monty.

    The all-action, don't-mess dream team of Jason Statham and Vinnie Jones knuckle down for this remake of the Burt Reynolds jailhouse sports smash The Longest Yard. Vinnie is well cast as a convicted footy star who must assemble a team of inmates to take on guv'nor David Hemmings' talentless prison officers XI. Don't expect many fair play awards from a comedy that keeps it simple but plays shin-splinteringly hard.

    When Yorkshire Women's Institute stalwarts Helen Mirren and Julie Walters ask their members to contribute to their next charity push, it's not the usual selection of buns and baps they want to put on display. More than just a female Full Monty, this is the true story of eleven plucky ladies whose tastefully titillating tribute to a dear friend made headlines from Swaledale to Hollywood. A feelgood winner... with no front bottoms, of course.

    The Indian-set Saga saga continues with the geriatric ex-pats firmly settled in Jaipur and currying favour with the locals, particularly garrulous hotelier Sonny (Dev Patel) and his fiancée. There's unspoken attraction between Douglas (Bill Nighy) and Evelyn (Judi Dench), Cockney ex-char Muriel (Maggie Smith) is helping Sonny with his expansionist plans and the arrival of eligible silver fox Richard Gere sets hearts aflutter. Sweet-natured romantic sequel for the older generation.

    Halle Berry won the Best Actress Oscar as a widow who falls for Death Row prison guard Hank (Billy Bob Thornton) who was on duty for her husband's execution. The delicate situation is made even more volatile by Hank's irredeemably racist father (Peter Boyle), whose prejudice is shared by Hank's son (Heath Ledger). Sexual and racial tensions run at a feverish high in this unflinchingly acted drama, splendidly handled by future Bond director Marc Forster.

  • Selma

    Available until 30 Nov 2016

    British star David Oyelowo embodies an American icon as civil rights leader Martin Luther King in this stirring account of the events surrounding the historic march for voting rights that began in Selma, Alabama in 1965. Facing a regime that prevents the majority of black people from exercising their lawful right to vote, Dr King urges all his fellow Americans to take non-violent action. But the opposition is brutal. Brilliantly played and frighteningly relevant, Selma presents a compelling chronicle of an era that is less bygone than it should be.
