Wajib (15)

‘Wajib’ meaning ‘duty’, in this case the Palestinian tradition resting upon Shadi to join his father Abu Shadi in delivering the invites to his sister’s wedding. But Shadi and Abu haven’t spoken for years: Shadi’s cosmopolitan outlook baffles Abu; Abu’s behaviour towards his mother before their divorce enrages Shadi. Tradition demands they set out on a roadtrip. Trapped within the confines of their car they are forced to confront their relationship, their differences and similarities. Subtle, poignant and extremely funny. For promoters who like a specialised film this is a good one. “Shot through with a likable streak of earthy humour”

Waking Ned Devine (PG)

The lucky winner of the national lottery is Ned Devine, so taken by his good fortune that he now can't be waked, because he died from the shock of it! News of the win spread quickly in the scenic little Irish village of Tully More, but not the secret news of Ned's demise. With lottery officials closing in to confirm the prize claimed by the deceased Devine, Ned's closest friends scheme to keep the prize money close to home, in memory of Ned of course! But as the plot twists humorously, they learn it is hard is to keep such a secret in a small town.

Where to Invade Next (15)

To show what the USA can learn from rest of the world, director Michael Moore playfully visits various nations in Europe and Africa as a one-man "invader" to take their ideas and practices for America. Whether it is Italy with its generous vacation time allotments, France with its gourmet school lunches, Germany with its industrial policy, Norway and its prison system, Tunisia and its strongly progressive women's policy and Iceland and its strong female presence in government and business among others, Michael Moore discovers there is much that American should emulate.

Widows (15)

Led by a superb, fierce performance from Davis this is a taut, emotional and thoroughly entertaining thriller that features a cast to die for. Four women plan to complete the heist in which their husbands were killed. The widows have nothing in common except a debt left behind by their husbands' criminal activities but find unexpected solidarity in tackling their men’s unfinished business. Set in corrupt contemporary Chicago, this sleek, stylish, pacey thriller zips through a host of issues - political corruption, police brutality, domestic violence - while also delivering high-octane action and a whole host of powerful performances.
