Going in Style (12A) - 96 mins Comedy, Crime

Freeman, Caine, and Arkin's average age might be 82, but they prove that they still have lots to teach younger actors about comedic timing, charm, and on-screen camaraderie in this feel-good remake. Common Sense Media

 

Oscar winners Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin team up as lifelong buddies Willie, Joe and Al, who decide to buck retirement and step off the straight-and-narrow for the first time in their lives when their pension fund becomes a corporate casualty, in director Zach Braff's comedy "Going in Style." Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three risk it all by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money.

Alone in Berlin (12A) - 97 mins Drama

There have been plenty of Second World War dramas about the Resistance but none have been quite so melancholic as Alone In Berlin. Vincent Perez’s unusual film is based on a true story of the two middle-aged rebels who planted nearly 300 postcards denouncing Hitler across Berlin between 1940 and 1943. Daily Express

 

This true-life tale of courage unfolds against the tumultuous backdrop of Berlin in 1940. Otto and Anna Quangel are a working class husband and wife doing their best to ride out the war. When their son is killed fighting on the frontlines, however, everything changes. They begin pouring their rage and grief into postcards emblazoned with anti-Nazi slogans, risking everything to disseminate their messages of protest across the city. But this seemingly small act of subversion rattles the regime, including a police inspector who will not rest until the culprits have been caught.

Whisky Galore (PG) - 98 mins Comedy, Romance

This remake of Whisky Galore must certainly be commended for its wonderfully picturesque cinematography, which shows the glorious surroundings of the Hebrides, and its touching depiction of a simpler time. Mackinnon’s Whisky Galore is an enjoyable watch made better with a cup of tea (or whisky) in hand! Guy Lambert

 

The film is about the SS Politician, an 8000-ton cargo ship sailing for Kingston, Jamaica and New Orleans with a cargo including 28,000 cases of malt whisky. On 5 February 1941, during gale force winds, she ran aground off the Island of Eriskay in the Outer Hebrides.
