Live by Night

Based on Den­nis Le­hane’s novel, this dark crime drama set in Bos­ton, US, dur­ing the Pro­hi­bi­tion era, cen­tres around a range of char­ac­ters in the world of or­gan­ised crime. Mob­ster Joe Cough­lin (Ben Af­fleck) lives the high life of a boot­leg­ger and out­law, sleep­ing with Emma (Si­enna Miller) – his ri­val’s mistress – and work­ing with gun­run­ner Gra­ciella (Zoe Sal­dana). It’s more than the usual gam­bling, speakeasy shoot ’em up, as the cin­e­matog­ra­phy is ex­quis­ite and the 1920s era is won­der­fully evoked.

Lov­ing

Based on the true story of Richard Lov­ing (Joel Edger­ton) and his wife Mil­dred (Ruth Negga) who were forced to leave Vir­ginia af­ter they mar­ried in 1958. The cou­ple’s decade-long fight against the town’s anti-mis­ce­gena­tion laws makes for a mov­ing film about two or­di­nary peo­ple whose love in­spired ex­tra­or­di­nary change.

Ta­ble 19

Af­ter be­ing dumped by her boyfriend and los­ing her place as maid of hon­our, Eloise (Anna Ken­drick) finds her­self at that wed­ding re­cep­tion ta­ble: the pa­thetic one near the bath­rooms. Seated with a mish­mash of wouldn’t-mat­ter-if-they­w­eren’t-there guests, she finds that be­ing an out­cast brings its own re­wards.

Fifty Shades Darker

Get ready for more smoul­der­ing glances in the se­cond in­stal­ment of the sexy spec­ta­cle that is the Fifty Shades tril­ogy. Chris­tian Grey (Jamie Dornan) must wres­tle with his in­ner de­mons to win back Anas­ta­sia Steele (Dakota John­son). Throw in a mur­der plot and some de rigueur sex scenes, and you have an ad­e­quate… um, ro­mance.
