GOING ALL THE WAY

(15) HH

Director: Mark Pellington

Starring: Jeremy Davies, Ben Affleck, Amy Locane, Rachel Weisz, Rose McGowan

This is an occasionally moving rites-of-passage drama with committed performances from Jeremy Davies and Ben Affleck as two soldier buddies returning to their home town.

MIMIC

(15) HH

Director: Guillermo Del Toro

Starring: Mira Sorvino, Jeremy Northam, Josh Brolin

Ingenious science-fiction-horror fable from the director of the excellent vampire movie, Cronos. Mira Sorvino is a doctor who successfully combats a virus that's sweeping New York by developing a rival cockroach species to wipe out the original disease-carriers, in the process inadvertently creating a breed which can assume human form.

GIRLS' NIGHT

(15) H

Director: Nick Hurran

Starring: Julie Walters, Brenda Blethyn, Kris Kristofferson

Shameless tearjerker with Brenda Blethyn as the cancer-suffering bingo winner who jets off to Las Vegas for a last-chance holiday with her sister- in-law (Julie Walters) and meets a wrinkled rodeo-rider (Kris Kristofferson). Initially bubbly, the picture soon turns grossly manipulative.

THE WAR AT HOME

(18)

Director: Emilio Estevez

Starring: Emilio Estevez, Martin Sheen, Kathy Bates, Kimberly Williams

Adapted from James Duff's Broadway play, Homefront, The War at Home is about a traumatised Vietnam veteran on his return home to Texas and his traditional family.
