Also showing at the Regal Picturehouse this week:

Amour (12A)

Amour (12A)

Starring: Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva.

An elderly couple struggle with the growing realisation that the wife is gradually succumbing to dementia.

A moving story of devotion and enduring love from Austrian director Michael Haneke, who won a Palme d’Or at Cannes with this film.

Lincoln (12A)

Starring: Daniel Day-Lewis, Tommy Lee Jones, Sally Field

Abraham Lincoln faces down the House of Representatives at the end of his second term of office in order to pass an anti-slavery bill.

Steven Spielberg elicits a fine performance from the man he has called “arguably the best actor in the world”.

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.

Argo (15)

Starring: Ben Affleck, Alan Arkin, John Goodman and Bryan Cranston

Dramatisation of the 1980 joint CIA-Canadian secret operation to extract six fugitive American diplomatic personnel out of revolutionary Iran.

Another chance to see the film that has scooped a Bafta for Affleck as best director and has been nominated for seven Oscars.

Wreck-It Ralph 3D (PG)

Voices of: John C Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch, Alan Tudyk, Jack McBrayer

A computer game character is tired of always playing the bad guy, and seeing all the glory going to Fix-It Felix, so he sets out on a game-hopping journey to turn himself into a hero.

John C Reilly is the loveable Ralph, and is winning the hearts of kids all over the country. A kind of modern, techno version of Toy Story.
