Computer-animated comedy (left), voiced by a stellar cast, stars Woody Allen as a worker ant who becomes an opponent of the colony's totalitarian regime. Good fun, and Allen's best work in a while.

Director Steven Soderbergh's tale of love on opposite sides of the law knocks spots off every previous Elmore Leonard adaptation, and boasts in George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez the romantic pairing of the cinematic year.

My Name is Joe (15)

Ken Loach's drama tells the tale of Joe (Peter Mullan), a recovering alcoholic torn between his old life and his new. My Name is Joe brilliantly spotlights the groping hopes of a Britain caught below the poverty line.
