Young Offenders

What we know

Here, la – this is about two feens who try to get to some drugs before the cops (sketch!) after a trawler crashes along the Cork coast. Some story, biy.

What the critics say

  • “On reflection the film is exactly what it sets out to be, a buddy movie caper that has a nifty trailer and will get bums on seats.” - Spoool
  • “Peter Foott’s anarchic comedy distinguishes itself in two ways: firstly, it is actually, frequently funny, blending the base and the absurd to great effect, and secondly, it eschews the sadly mainstream, authoritarian Irish tendency to represent the Gardaí as a uniform force for good in society.” - Totally Dublin

What we know

Bridget Jones is back – and finds herself pregnant. But who’s the father – dashing Darcy or bland American hunk Jack Qwant?

What the critics say

  • Zellweger shows that she can still play this part with charm, gamely keeping up as the movie keeps jumping ahead in her nine-month ordeal.” - AV Club
  • “But Bridget has grown up in one significant way: Her obsession with diet and weight loss has subsided, and at long last she seems at peace with her body.” - New York Times

Hunt for the Wilderpeople

What we know

A young New Zealander is sent to a foster family after doing a whole heap of misbehaving – but soon finds himself on the run. Quirky comedy starring Sam Neill.

What the critics say

  • Hunt for the Wilderpeople becomes a road movie with no road, a film about two people who may seem entirely different but have both been discarded by society” -
  • It’s a warm hug of a movie that has just enough spark and fire to stop it from fading from your memory the moment the credits roll.” - Collider
