(Robert Zemeckis, 2012, Us) Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, Kelly Reilly. 138 mins
A white-knuckle plane crash is just the beginning of Washington's troubles in this unorthodox drama, which finds his hero-pilot status compromised by the fact that he was high on duty. Between the demons of alcoholism and the aviation authority investigation, he goes into a personal tailspin – but it's not your typical rehab story and you'll want to see how he'll get out of it.
Hyde Park On Hudson (12A)
(Roger Michell, 2012, UK) Bill Murray, Laura Linney, 95 mins
Daniel Day-Lewis won't be losing any sleep over Murray's take on Franklin D Roosevelt. This directionless drama deals with the president's special relationships – first with an obliging cousin (Linney), then with Britain, via a visit from George VI.
