Baz Luhrmann’s post­poned take on the Great Amer­i­can Novel does not look to be re­strained. Leonardo Dicaprio plays the epony­mous faker, with Carey Mul­li­gan as Daisy Buchanan and Tobey Maguire as Nick Car­raway

THE GREAT GATSBY FAST AND FURIOUS 6 The last episode in the fran­chise was the best yet. So we’ve ev­ery rea­son to ex­pect some­thing tasty from the sixth chap­ter. Ja­son Statham joins the reg­u­lars, in­clud­ing Michelle Ro­driguez (left). Cather­ine Keener, Imo­gen Poots In the count­down to their 25th an­niver­sary, the Fugue String Quar­tet sit down to re­hearse Beethoven’s Op 131. Some 4,000 per­for­mances into the quar­tet’s ca­reer, their beloved cel­list (Walken) can only man­age a few im­per­fect bars. Can the oth­ers stop bick­er­ing with­out him?. The per­for­mances in this clas­si­calthemed soap are im­pec­ca­ble and the Up­per East Side set­ting adds a Woody Allen gloss. But the plot is rigid, hu­mour­less and al­to­gether con­ve­nient. 15A cert, Screen, Dublin; Car­rick Cine­plex, Leitrim; Boyle/Car­rick Cine­plex, Roscom­mon, 105 min NEW RE­LEASE ME AND YOU/IO E TE Club, Light House, Dublin, 103 min See re­view, page 13 NEW RE­LEASE MUD 15A cert, lim re­lease, 130 min See re­view, page 12

LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED Di­rected by Su­sanne Bier. Star­ring Pierce Bros­nan, Trine Dyrholm Bier, Dan­ish di­rec­tor of tough Dogme dra­mas, loosens up with a largely suc­cess­ful ro­man­tic com­edy about a can­cer sur­vivor (Dyrholm) and a wid­ower (Bros­nan) who meet up at their chil­dren’s wed­ding. Dyrholm plays the com­edy and the drama with the same fur­rowed con­vic­tion, but (even af­ter all this time) it is Bros­nan who de­liv­ers the rev­e­la­tory per­for­mance. Gosh darn it, the man re­ally can act. And he’s funny on pur­pose. 15A cert, gen re­lease, 116 min OBLIV­ION Di­rected by Joseph Kosin­ski. Star­ring Tom Cruise, Mor­gan Free­man, Olga Kurylenko, An­drea Rise­bor­ough, Melissa Leo Largely suc­cess­ful sci-fi romp con­cern­ing the sur­vivor of an apoc­a­lypse (Cruise) who spends his days mend­ing drones on a dev­as­tated earth and his nights snug­gling up to his col­league (Rise­bor­ough) in an im­pec­ca­ble white tower. The open­ing sec­tions,which come across like Stan­ley Kubrick’s The Jet­sons, pass the time per­fectly


EPIC plea­sur­ably. Then a stranger (Kurylenko) ar­rives in a space­ship. Be­fore too long, ev­ery­thing is ex­plod­ing and we’re stuck in a bog-stan­dard fu­tur­is­tic boom­fest. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 124 min THE ODD LIFE OF TI­MOTHY GREEN Di­rected by Peter Hedges. Star­ring Jennifer Garner, Joel Edger­ton, Dianne Wi­est
