THE IRON GIANT
1999, Warner Bros., 86 min, USA, Dir: Brad Bird

Director Brad Bird's ambitious take on Ted Hughes' 1968 children's book The Iron Man is a delightful tale of friendship between a fatherless boy and a gigantic metal robot, in a small town in the Cold War ’50s. One of the best animated films to have come out in the past 20 years, with magical moments for the whole family.


SHE’S FUNNY THAT WAY
2014, Lionsgate, 93 min, USA, Dir: Peter Bogdanovich

Director Peter Bogdanovich’s first feature in more than a decade kicks into gear when Broadway director Owen Wilson takes a fancy to call girl-turned-actress Imogen Poots and casts her in his latest play – along with his wife (Kathryn Hahn) and her ex (Rhys Ifans). Jennifer Aniston, Will Forte and a host of cameos too good to spoil here add to the romantic chaos in this effervescent comedy. “It’s a hysterical screwball fantasia that openly steals from Lubitsch, Hawks, Capra and Sturges and wants to be caught with its fingers in the till. The result is a highly sexed Jenga-pile of silliness, to which Bogdanovich can’t resist adding block after teetering block.” - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph.


THE GOOD GIRL
2002, Fox Searchlight Pictures, 93 min, USA, Dir: Miguel Arteta

This offbeat black comedy stars Jennifer Aniston as Justine Last, whose marriage to dim-witted Phil (John C. Reilly) and job in a discount store are both dead-ends until a new cashier (Jake Gyllenhaal) obsessed with The Catcher In The Rye arrives and sweeps her off her feet. With Zooey Deschanel. “A droll, well-acted, character-driven comedy with unexpected deposits of feeling.” - J. Hoberman, The Village Voice.
