Discover Tuesday — False Trail (15)
Starring: Rolf Lassgård, Peter Stormare, Annika Nordin
A police detective settling back into his home town locks horns with a local cop in his quest to find the killer of a brutal murder.
Another polished slice of Scandinavian crime cinema. Worth seeing if you liked Headhunters.

Four retired opera singers, feted for their aria in Rigoletto, meet up in a retirement home for musicians. The plot is complicated by an old and bitter love match that must be replayed.
Dustin Hoffman makes his debut as director. A gentle, amusing film with the best of brilliant British acting.
Les Misérables (12A)
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter
Oscar-nominated film version of the world’s most popular musical, directed by Tom Hooper, of The King’s Speech fame. A story of poverty and the endurance of the human spirit set in Paris in the 1800s.
Visually spectacular and with some not-half-bad singing, this film is one of the best movies in a pretty poor bunch for the 2012/13 season.

Fast-paced, if somewhat action-focused update of the Disney film.
