What we know

This Pixar/Disney film is getting rave reviews because it’s all about what goes on in a young girl’s mind.

What the critics say

  • “On the scale of inventiveness, “Inside Out” will be hard to top this year. As so often with Pixar, you feel that you are visiting a laboratory crossed with a rainbow.” - New Yorker 
  • “Bucking the current company mandate of churning out lesser sequels and prequels, it’s not just a brilliant idea, but maybe the most conceptually daring movie the Bay Area animation house has ever produced. And that’s really saying something, what with WALL-E on the books.” - The AV Club

What we know

Jake Gyllenhaal got pumped up to play boxer Billy Hope, who loses his grip on things when he suffers a tragic family accident.

What the critics say

  • “Essentially this is a father-daughter story, and a heart-tugging one at that, thanks to fine direction from Antoine Fuqua and a humanistic script by Sons Of Anarchy’s Kurt Sutter.” - Deadline 
  • “Particularly during the film’s first half, Fuqua deploys such a heavy directorial hand that he all but puts a chokehold on the material; he doesn’t seem to be observing Billy’s decline so much as actively trying to break his spirit, as though having the character hit rock bottom numerous times would encourage our empathy rather than leave us feeling crudely manipulated.” - Variety

What we know

Aidan Gillen takes a stab at comedy with this film about a girl and her wayward uncle.

What the critics say

  • “The rapport of this odd couple is amusingly scrappy and irreverent as they dance around their masked feelings of loss, trading barbs in a distinctly Irish surly-sweet fashion.” - Hollywood Reporter 
  • “Noonan approaches the whole film in this fashion – letting eyes and gestures speak on one hand, and on the other, combining the interpersonal relations with the beautiful landscapes littered with decrepit houses and ugly trailers, and with a rusty railway cutting through it.” - Cineuropa
