Dir. Petra Vople (Switzerland 2017, 97mins 12)

Unbelievably, Swiss women did not have the vote in 1970, then a demur housewife in a small time village decided to get political and win the vote for women. This fictionalised entertaining crowd-pleaser delivers a genuine and rousing sense of sisterhood in Switzerland's entry to the Oscars.

Known as Megan Leavey in the United States, this turned out to be one of the big films of the year which audiences absolutely loved. The uplifting true story of a young female Marine (Megan Leavey played by Kate Mara) and her combat dog with whom she develops a unique bond. After 100 successful missions, both were wounded by IED explosions in Iraq (2006). Leavey was awarded the Purple Star but what happened next leaves everyone in tears.

A nuanced and brilliant performance from multi Oscar winner Meryl Streep as Kathrine Graham, the first female publisher of a major US newspaper (Washington Post), and the attempt with her editor (Tom Hanks as Ben Bradlee) to publish during the Nixon era the Pentagon Papers, the secret government documents on the Vietnam war leaked by Daniel Ellsberg.

Two outstanding performances from two of France's greatest actresses, Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Frot, as the still wild but dying former mistress of her father and the inhibited and hurt daughter, now a midwife, who meet again after thirty years. A moving film of warmth, depth and emotion that is entirely a pleasure.

Based on a George Simenon novel, this is a beautifully crafted, superbly acted shadowy film noir of great power. A middle aged man falls for his neighbour only to be framed for murder by her lover. Remastered and re-released, Duvivier's first film back in France after working in Hollywood is an indictment of mobs and collaboration.

If you haven't seen it or have only seen it five times, here is the most popular and entertaining film of the year. Rami Malek as Freddy Mercury is extraordinary. A film that borders on kitsch somehow manages to turn into a thrilling and meaningful movie.

This swansong to Robert Redford is probably the most enjoyable film of the year. Beautifully acted, the ease of Redford is matched by Sissy Spacek in a 'mostly true' tale of an elderly, gentleman bank robber coming to the end of his days. Wonderfully directed in '70s style.

This documentary proved to be one of the most popular screenings from the Festival - and deservedly so. The story of three lost boxes recovered in Mexico in 2007. The boxes, misplaced in the chaos of WWII, contained 4,400 negatives of the war photographers of the Spanish Civil War, including those of Robert Capra. Beautiful score by Michael Nyman.

A kind-hearted sharecropper in rural Italy befriends a rich nobleman.  This Cannes winner is a beautiful, mysterious film combining magical realism and social commentary where events take a very strange turn in a modern Brothers Grimm fairy tale.  On the critics' list as one of the best films of the year.

Dir. Peter Kominsky (UK 1992, 106mins 12)

 

Emily Bronte's novel has seen many adaptions - this one by Anne Devlin takes on the whole novel and deserves a reassessment. The great Juliette Binoche, the debut of Ralph Fiennes, wonderful music from Ryuichi Sakamoto and uncredited narration by Sinead O'Connor produce a very good film - but will it satisfy lovers of the novel?

 

Following the film, a discussion led by academic and award-winning novelist Michael Stewart creator of the Brontë Stones project, four monumental stones sited between the Brontë's birthplace in Thornton, Bradford and Haworth parsonage, inscribed with poems by Kate Bush, Carol Ann Duffy and Jeannette Winterson. Currently writing a book about the landscapes that inspired the Brontës.

 

Also participating, John Wheatley, director of forthcoming production of a play of the book at Southgate Theatre.

 

A great opportunity for book-clubs or anyone who loves Emily Brontë's novel.

Fascinating and gripping documentary quest into the remarkable life of the director's Aunt, Vienna-born photographer for Picture Post and dedicated Soviet agent, Edith Tudor-Hart, who recruited British spies such as Kim Philby in the 1930s. A very talented woman who became another sad victim of the Cold War.
