Dir. Michael Gracey (US 2017, 105mins PG)

The audience hit of the year. Auto-tuned and full of CGI, it makes no difference to the sensational reception of this exuberant celebration of the life of T.P. Barnum (Hugh Jackman). But don't forget the theme of discrimination, the excellent Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya and Keala Settle and the brilliant costumes of Ellen Mirojnick.

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.

GLORY

Dir. Kristinia Grozeva & Peter Valchanov (Bulgaria/Greece 2017 99mins 12)

Beautifully acted and often very funny fable about a honest and innocent railworker who comes across a large cache of money and sets off a tale of corruption and eventual tragedy as the hard-edged PR people (a wonderful Margita Gosheva) take over. Another gem from these Bulgarian directors (The Lesson, 2015).

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.
