Moulin Rouge (PG) 1952 Stylish biopic exploring the life and love affairs of famed painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Jose Ferrer's portrayal of the artist is superb, but the real star of the film is Colette Marchand, who won an Oscar for her performance as Marie Charlet, a prostitute he becomes infatuated with. Produced and co-written by John Huston and based on a best-selling fictionalised biography by Pierre La Mure. Zsa Zsa Gabor and Peter Cushing co-star (888)

The Kidnappers (U) 1953 Two orphaned boys living with their strict grandfather in Nova Scotia are disappointed by his refusal to allow them to keep a dog. However, their loneliness is alleviated when they discover a baby apparently abandoned in woodlands and decide to raise the child themselves. Skilful drama, starring Duncan Macrae, Adrienne Corri, Jon Whiteley and Vincent Winter (888)

From Hell to Texas (U) 1958 Don Murray stars as a wandering cowboy who accidentally kills a man and finds himself pursued by his victim's vengeful brothers. Finding shelter with a kindly ranch owner, the wanted man gradually falls in love with his host's daughter, but struggles with the knowledge that he may be caught at any moment. Fine Western, with Diane Varsi, Chill Wills and Dennis Hopper (888)

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (PG) 2004 Giant flying robots attack New York and only the heroic Sky Captain and a tenacious reporter seem able to save the day. Gleefully old-fashioned sci-fi adventure, notable for the use of computer-generated backgrounds and real actors, which gives it a unique feel. Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie head the cast, which also includes appearances by a digitally recreated Laurence Olivier (888)

Million Dollar Baby (12) 2004 Clint Eastwood directed and starred in this moving drama, which landed him a clutch of Oscar triumphs. He plays a down-on-his-luck boxing trainer abandoned by both his protege and his daughter. When a tenacious woman (Hilary Swank) from a dysfunctional family asks him to help hone her technique, he's initially dubious. However, she finally manages to win him round, and the pair soon form a strong and productive bond. With Morgan Freeman and Anthony Mackie (888)

Silent Light (15) 2007 Premiere. A married man living in a strict religious community has a secret affair with another woman.

LOL (12) 2006 Premiere. Comedy drama, following the lives of three men whose fixation with technology threatens to ruin their relationships in the real world. A computer obsessive's girlfriend despairs of getting him to switch his laptop off, a musician becomes infatuated with a woman he meets online, unaware a female friend is in love with him, and a couple in a long distance relationship find communicating by phone no substitute for actual contact. Directed by and starring Joe Swanberg
