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

They live to party, with drink, drugs and general debauchery infusing their days and their careers and personal lives otherwise largely on hold. But when Laura falls in love, her new romance highlights flaws in their friendship that force them to re-consider their shared and separate futures. Consistently unconventional, unruly and rich, Animals capably conjures up an entire world. It boasts excellent performances by and chemistry between Grainger and Shawkat, a sharp, insightful and witty script, and Hyde’s distinctive direction.

Little Women (2019) (U)

Writer-director Greta Gerwig has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life.
