A Private War (15)

In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless, while constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable sipping martinis with London's elite as she is confronting dictators. Colvin sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she's witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her - along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy - to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs.

A Shaun the Sheep Movie - Farmageddon (U)

With its high chuckle quotient and warm-hearted feel-good factor this is another dottily daft big-screen Aardman adventure that’s right on the money. When a friendly alien with amazing powers crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun the Sheep goes on a mission to shepherd the intergalactic visitor home before a sinister organization can capture her. Their usual mix of irresistible jolliness, English eccentricity and largely wordless slapstick with echoes of Keaton and Chaplin is a feast for the eyes. With many a nod to your favourite sci-fi movie this is expertly crafted in true, Aardman style to cater for anyone who wants a good laugh whether young or old. “an utter delight -- proof that good storytelling and strong craft are what matters, however familiar the packaging.” Independent
