Nothing Is More Romantic Than Snuggling on a Star Wars Dewback Sofa

Setting the mood for a night in usually involves dim lighting, soft music, and a comfy place for a couple to cozy up. Unless you and your loved one both happen to be Star Wars fans, in which case glowing lightsabers, John Williams’ Imperial March, and a loveseat shaped like a Dewback lizard are more apropos

A Moving Image review – love, art and rocketing house prices

Fiction meshes with footage of street protests and vox-pop interviews in Shola Amoo’s heartfelt docudrama about gentrification in Brixton

Despite some rough edges, there is a warmth and an ease to this shoestring debut from NFTS graduate Shola Amoo – a docudrama about gentrification in Brixton, south London.

Tanya Fear plays Nina, who returns to Brixton after some years away, intent on making a film about people getting priced out of their own neighbourhood. As her project develops, she has complicated feelings for local performance artist Ayo (Aki Omoshaybi) and also for an up-and-coming young actor Mickey (Alex Austin), whose success has allowed him to buy a flat nearby – in just the way her film is condemning.

Handsome Devil review – feelgood comedy tackles homophobia

Set in a posh Irish boarding school, John Butler’s film focuses on an unlikely friendship between a star rugby player and his sensitive roommate

Writer-director John Butler won hearts and minds with his 2013 comedy The Stag; this new movie is about homophobia and conformism in a posh Irish boarding school. Very clearly, it’s a personal and autobiographical project for him. For me, Handsome Devil exists in a Venn diagram tonal overlap between John Carney’s Sing Street and Lenny Abrahamson’s What Richard Did. Music is a vital lifeline for the kids growing up who feel alone – who are quiet or artistic or just don’t fit in. Meanwhile, rugby is a macho fetish, notably for the well-off. 

Fionn O’Shea plays sensitive Ned, bullied for being “different” by the rugby types. Then he’s made to share a room with Conor (Nicholas Galitzine), a new boy thrown out of his old school for fighting, and Conor turns out to be a rugby superstar and saviour of the school team. Against all odds, the aesthete and the hearty become real friends; Ned finds this alliance gets the bullies off his back, but things are complicated.
