Out of Sight (15)

This 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 swooniest romantic pairing of the cinematic year.

Antz (PG)

This computer-animated comedy (right), voiced by a stellar cast, stars Woody Allen as worker ant "Z", who becomes an unlikely opponent of the colony's totalitarian regime when he falls in with Princess Bakla (Sharon Stone).

My Name is Joe (15)

This solid social-realist drama contains all that one would expect from a Ken Loach film - humour, indignation, emotional sympathy - driven by Peter Mullan's intense performance as a recovering alcoholic.
