Chance of a Lifetime (U) 1950 A group of angry factory workers, tired of poor wages and working conditions, go on strike. The boss of the business decides to let his workers have a go at running the place, causing them to dramatically reassess their ideas. Amiable comedy drama, directed, written by and starring Bernard Miles, with Basil Radford, Kenneth More, Basil Radford and Geoffrey Keen (888)

Millions Like Us (U) 1943 Fascinating British drama about the fortunes of a family split up during World War Two. The action focuses largely on the exploits of youngest member Patricia Roc, who hopes to do something glamorous for the war effort, but ends up working in a factory. However, she resolves to make the best of it and even manages to find romance. Also starring Eric Portman, Gordon Jackson and Anne Crawford (888)

The Girl Can't Help It (U) 1956 Rock 'n' roll comedy, with musical performances by Fats Domino, Little Richard, Gene Vincent, The Platters and Julie London dominating the plot about a theatrical agent's attempts to propel a gangster's girlfriend to stardom. Jayne Mansfield and Tom Ewell star

One Fine Day (PG) 1996 George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer star as mismatched single professionals whose children miss a school trip. The pair take it in turns to babysit while struggling to stick to their hectic work schedules only for their feelings for one another to blossom unexpectedly over the course of the day. Charming romantic comedy, with Charles Durning and Mae Whitman

Zoolander (12) 2001 Dim supermodel Ben Stiller is stunned when his career goes down the tubes thanks to the arrival of an equally vacuous rival. However, he never suspects he's merely a pouting pawn in a dangerous game of world domination and international espionage. Catty comedy taking neat potshots at the industry, with funnyman Stiller on fine form as the chiselled hunk, starring alongside Owen Wilson, Milla Jovovich, Christine Taylor and David Duchovny (888)

Apocalypse Now (18) 1979 Francis Ford Coppola's superb and highly acclaimed Vietnam War epic about a world-weary US Army captain (Martin Sheen) assigned to penetrate deepest Cambodia and assassinate an insane renegade colonel (Marlon Brando, in a powerful role). Robert Duvall's performance as surf-crazy Kilgore is stunning, and even after repeated viewings, this remains one of the best war movies in history. Frederic Forrest, Sam Bottoms, Dennis Hopper and a young Laurence Fishburne also star, with a cameo by Harrison Ford. Harrowing, but unmissable and compelling stuff (888)

Candy (15) 2006 Harrowing drama, starring Heath Ledger as a poet who draws his art student lover into his use of heroin. However, as their shared addiction comes to dominate their lives and relationship, desperate measures are called for to break the cycle of self-destruction. With Abbie Cornish and Geoffrey Rush
