What does the classification 15 mean?
Director: Nate Parker

Acclaimed drama written, directed and starring Parker as Nat Turner, a real-life slave who in the early 1800s led a rebellion against white slavers. Vividly capturing the brutality of slavery, it's impossible not to be deeply moved as it builds to a devastating finale.

What does the classification 15 mean?
Director: Sharon Maguire
Stars: Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey
When Bridget (Zellweger) becomes pregnant she's unsure if Mark Darcy (Firth) or Jack Qwant (Dempsey) is the father, and much hilarity ensues. Some people thought a third trip to the well might be a film too far for Ms Jones, but they were wrong.

Deepwater Horizon

I, Daniel Blake
I, Daniel Blake
What does the classification 15 mean?
Director: Ken Loach
Stars: Dave Johns, Hayley Squires
Featuring terrific performances from Johns as a man forced into work despite a heart condition, and Squires as a single mum on the breadline, Ken Loach's latest is an unsettling and unapologetically downbeat watch - but you won't see a more powerful and prescient drama all year.

The Girl With All The Gifts
The Girl With All The Gifts

Julieta
Julieta
What does the classification 15 mean?
Director: Pedro Almodóvar

Spanish auteur Pedro Almodóvar crafts an almost Hitchockian tale of motherly love as the eponymous character discovers news about her estranged daughter, Antía. Heartbroken, she reminisces about the reasons for their estrangement as the mystery of her whereabouts deepens…

The Light Between Oceans
The Light Between Oceans
What does the classification 12 mean?
Director: Derek Cianfrance
Stars: Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander, Rachel Weisz
Vikander and Fassbender play an isolated couple who find and keep a baby. All goes well until the real mother (Weisz) turns up. With guilt, grief and parental love in the mix, it's not a bag of laughs, but you won't see a more handsomely mounted movie all year.

Subtitles available in English and Chinese
The Magnificent Seven
The Magnificent Seven
What does the classification 12 mean?

Remake of the 1960 classic starring Washington as the head of a group of law enforcers gathered to save a beleaguered town from marauding bandits - all the time with the clock ticking towards the inevitable (and brilliantly staged) showdown.

Queen of Katwe
What does the classification PG mean?
Director: Mira Nair
Stars: David Oyelowo, Lupita Nyong'o, Madina Nalwanga
Disney's Queen Of Katwe is the true-life biopic of unlikely chess whizz, Phiona Mutesi, who came from the slums, learned to play chess and went on to become one of the first female champs in Ugandan chess history. It's an inspiring, uplifting tale, beautifully told.

Subtitles available in English and Chinese
Storks
Storks
What does the classification U mean?
Director: Nicholas Stoller, Doug Sweetland
Stars: Andy Samberg, Jennifer Aniston, Kelsey Grammar
Animated comedy about storks who act as a kind of global UPS, delivering packages for an internet company. However the real attraction is an array of big-name voice talent and an endearingly rapid-fire, scattershot comic approach.

Subtitles available in English and Chinese
Sully
Sully
What does the classification 12 mean?
Director: Clint Eastwood
Stars: Tom Hanks, Laura Linney, Aaron Eckhart
Most of us can remember in 2009, when Captain Chesley Sullenberger (Hanks) was hailed a hero for gliding his stricken Airbus to ditch in the Hudson river. However, if you don't know what happened to him afterwards, you owe it to yourself to watch this…

Subtitles available in English and Chinese
Call Of Heroes
Call Of Heroes
What does the classification 15 mean?
Director: Benny Chan
Stars: Sean Lau, Eddie Peng, Louis Koo
A martial arts blockbuster filmed with actual skills rather than trickery and CGI. The plot involves plucky heroes fighting warlords in order to protect their homeland, but it's the fight scenes that are the main attraction here - they're gobsmacking.

Subtitles available in English
Pink
Pink
What does the classification 15 mean?
Director: Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury

A group of boys attack three girls. In a shock turn of events, however, it's the girls who end up in the dock. Taking their case is lawyer Deepak, who realises he's bitten off more than he can chew when it becomes clear that the lads have powerful contacts…

Sultan
Sultan
What does the classification 12 mean?
Director: Ali Abbas Zafar
Stars: Randeep Hooda, Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma
Khan plays mediocre wrestler Sultan, who falls in love with a state-level wrestler, Aarfa (Shama), and then starts to train in order to win her affection. And if you're thinking it sounds a bit like Rocky, except with more romance, then you're not wrong.
