Inside Llewyn Davis  (M) Offensive language

Coen brothers' dramedy set against the 1960s New York/Greenwich Village folk scene, loosely based on the travails of singer-songwriter Dave Van Ronk. Stars Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman and Oscar Isaac (Drive) in the lead. Grand Jury Prize winner at Cannes 2013.

Struggling folk singer Llewyn Davis (Isaac) has lost his musical partner Mike to suicide and his foray into being a solo musician with the album Inside Llewyn Davis is selling poorly. Davis spends his nights on friends' couches and his days trying to score his big break. Finding himself variously in the middle of a love triangle with friends Jim (Timberlake) and Jean (Mulligan); on the road to Chicago with fellow musicians; or getting beaten up outside music venues, this is one tough week in the life of Llewyn Davis.

Godzilla  No Comps

Radioactive giant Godzilla storms into cinemas (in 3D and IMAX 3D) after nearly 30 Japanese films and two prior American versions. Excitingly, this is from director Gareth Edwards - his second film after the excellent Monsters (2010).

The diverse cast includes Kick-Ass' Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen and Juliette Binoche. Co-writer Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption) has said the film will present Godzilla as "a terrifying force of nature", and on the story's arc said: "There is a very compelling human drama that I got to weave into it. It’s not that cliched, thinly disguised romance or bromance, or whatever. It’s different, it’s a different set of circumstances than you’re used to seeing."

Best friends Davy (George MacKay, How I Live Now) and Ally (Kevin Guthrie, Trash Humpers) return from military service in Afghanistan. Both come back in one piece. Their brush with death only intensifies a desire to live life to the fullest, which for Davy involves falling head-over-heels in love with Yvonne (Antonia Thomas, TV's Misfits), while Ally plans to propose to Davy's sister Liz (Freya Mavor, TV's Skins). Meanwhile, Davy and Liz's folks, Rab (Mullan) and Jean (Horrocks), are set to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary.

The Invisible Woman

Ralph Fiennes (Coriolanus) makes his second directorial effort with this adaptation of Claire Tomalin’s award-winning biographical novel on Nelly Ternan, the secret lover of Charles Dickens. Fiennes stars as the infatuated Dickens alongside Felicity Jones (Like Crazy) as Ternan and Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient) as Nelly’s mother.

Nelly, a happily-married mother and schoolteacher, is haunted by her past. Her memories take us back in time to follow the story of her relationship with Dickens, with whom she discovered an exciting but fragile complicity. Dickens - famous, controlling and emotionally isolated within his success - falls for Nelly, who comes from a family of actors. The theatre is a vital arena for Dickens, a man more emotionally coherent on the page or on stage, than in life. As Nelly becomes the focus of Dickens' passion and his muse, for both of them secrecy is the price, and for Nelly a life of "invisibility".

Tomalin's book is adapted for the screen by Abi Morgan, screenwriter of The Iron Lady and Shame.

Thursday 22nd May 2014

Starring: Ralph Fiennes, Felicity Jones, Michelle Fairley, Kristin Scott Thomas, Tom Hollander, Perdita Weeks, Tom Burke, Joanna Scanlan
