Early ManEarly Man (2018)
Dir. Nick Park
Stop motion animation from Aardman Studios, set in the prehistoric era and telling the story of Dug and his sidekick Hognobas, who defend their land from Bronze Age invaders with a football match. Shamelessly cheesy and big-hearted, with a classic comedic style surely as old as it's setting.
Peter RabbitPeter Rabbit (2018)
Dir. Will Gluck
Based on the beloved books by Beatrix Potter, about the mischievous Peter Rabbit and his three sisters Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton Tail. A mix of animation and live-action in a style that distances itself from it's source material. Shouldn't be too annoying for adults, unless you're a Potter purist.
CocoCoco (2017)
Dir. Lee Unkrich
Feat. Anthony Gonzalez, Gael Garcia Bernal, Benjamin Bratt
A charming Pixar film based on the Mexican holiday The Day of the Dead, that proves to be more than just a bunch of Halloween cliches. The story follows a Mexican boy called Miguel, who dreams of being a musician but accidentally ends up in The Land of the Dead. Smart story-telling which draws from a…
Paddington 2Paddington 2 (2017)
Dir. Paul King
Feat. Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Hugh Bonneville
The beloved bear Paddington returns in this more than worthy sequel to the 2015 movie. Full of pure, big hearted happiness, this delightful and witty film manages to feel timeless and utterly unpretentious even while drawing stylistic influence from the very best of classic comedy - from Charlie Chaplin to…
My Life as a ZucchiniMy Life as a Zucchini (2016)
Dir. Claude Barras
Expressive, bittersweet French stop-motion animated feature about a boy (Courgette) who must adjust to life in a foster home of orphans, who each have childhood traumas they are overcoming. Based on a script from acclaimed writer/director CĂ©line Sciamma (Girlhood, Tomboy), it entirely suitable for 7-ups…
Swallows and AmazonsSwallows and Amazons (2016)
Dir. Philippa Lowthorpe
Feat. Kelly MacDonald, Rafe Spall, Andrew Scott
Based on the 1974 film that was in turn adapted from the series of 1930's children's novels by Arthur Ransome, this reprise retains the setting and spirit of between-the-wars innocence and wide-eyed wonder. The upstanding adventures begin when a group of four children (known as the Swallows) sail on their…
Changeover, TheChangeover, The (2017)
Dir. Stuart McKenzie, Miranda Harcourt
Feat. Erana James, Timothy Spall, Melanie Lynskey
Maragret Mahy's beloved fantasy romance novel is translated into a post-earthquake Christchurch setting, and marks an impressive debut from actress Erana James as the misunderstood teen with supernatural powers. With the influence of teen fantasy heavyweights such as the TWILIGHT franchise ever apparent,…
