The Med­dler (M) Su­san Saran­don is a de­light as the ti­tle char­ac­ter, a lonely, cling­ing widow whose need to be loved and wanted is both an­noy­ing and at­trac­tive. Di­rec­tor Lorene Sca­faria, draw­ing on the char­ac­ter of her own mother, has cre­ated a true-to-life char­ac­ter, while Rose Byrne, as the daugh­ter seek­ing a more in­de­pen­dent life, also pro­vides a recog­nis­able, flawed char­ac­ter. Ba­si­cally a com­edy, the film con­tains some painful home truths along­side the laughs.

X-Men: Apoca­lypse (M) This is the fourth X-Men film di­rected by Bryan Singer, set a decade af­ter his pre­vi­ous in­stal­ment, X-Men: Days of Fu­ture Past.
