A Kid for Two Farthings (U) 1955 Sweetly whimsical drama set in London's East End. A six-year-old is fascinated by the stories of an elderly neighbour, who tells him about the strange powers of the mythical unicorns. The lad sets out to find such a magical beast, only to encounter a single-horned goat. Certain he's found the creature he was looking for, he takes it home — and sets about making wishes come true. Jonathan Ashmore, Celia Johnson, Diana Dors and David Kossoff star (888)

Brokeback Mountain (15) 2005 Ang Lee's haunting, Oscar-winning drama, telling the tale of a doomed love affair between two Wyoming cowboys.

Sleepy Hollow (15) 1999 Tim Burton's stylish take on Washington Irving's classic tale, about a headless horseman terrorising a quiet village community, starring Johnny Depp as sceptical investigating officer Ichabod Crane.

Eerily atmospheric chiller, with Christina Ricci, Miranda Richardson and Michael Gambon (888)

The Final Cut (12) 2004 Sci-fi thriller, set in a future where people have microchips implanted in their brains to record their every memory. A man employed to edit the contents of dead people's chips into a “highlights reel” for their family finds a connection between his latest subject and his own troubled past. But a militant group also want the footage for their own reasons. Starring Robin Williams and Mira Sorvino
