New this week: Love Is All You Need.
Wuthering Heights
Wuthering Heights


Argo
An old-fashioned Hollywood slam-dunk, based on a fascinating true story – the attempt to smuggle six fugitive Americans out of Iran during the 1979 hostage crisis.

Love Is All You Need
A wedding in Italy, with a family crisis and love triumphant. Not the crisis or the love you might expect, however. Likeable character piece, not so much tonally odd as tonally Danish.

Skyfall
Bond is back. Love him or loathe him, he’s never looked better than he does here.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2
Fans (I’m one) will find the wrap-up of the sparkly vampire love story deliriously satisfying. Everyone else should run like crazy. But you knew that.

Wuthering Heights
Superbly bleak adaptation of the Brontë classic, using minimal dialogue and an eloquent cinema.
