Hell Or High Water (15) Cool-headed Toby (Pine) and impulsive Tanner (Foster) are bank-robbing brothers, pursued across the blighted Texan badlands by soon-to-retire Texas ranger Marcus (Bridges) and his long-suffering Native American deputy, Alberto (Birmingham). Wily, laconic Marcus realises the brothers’ low-key strategy – early mornings, small banks, small bills – will prove their undoing, and insists on playing a waiting game. Meanwhile, despite his brother’s admonishments, Tanner pushes the risk factor with random heists. Subtexts, subplots, flashes of dark humour and surprises abound, and the wry script by Taylor Sheridan (Sicario), tautly executed by rising British director David Mackenzie (Starred Up), maintains emotional interest as well as suspense, with echoes of the Coens’ Blood Simple and True Grit. Friday at 6pm and Saturday at 8.45pm.

Kubo and the Two Strings (PG) Feisty one-eyed pre-teen Kubo is on a mission to recover his dead samurai father’s magic armour, aided by a pink-faced monkey and a giant beetle. Their beautifully rendered adventures provide enough gasps and goshes to keep us on the edge our seats. Sunday at 1.30pm, Monday at 4pm, Tuesday at 4.15pm and Wednesday and Thursday at 3.30pm.

The Meddler (12A) Susan Sarandon is simply marvellous as Marnie Minervini, the titular meddling mother in this warm and moving comedy. Wealthy widow Marnie relocates to be near her grown-up daughter, Lori (Byrne). Marnie hopes to restart her life, but instead can’t resist micromanaging her exasperated daughter’s. Loosely based on writerdirector Lorene Scafaria’s relationship with her own mother, this ultimately poignant family portrait has a wonderful ring of authenticity. Tuesday at 2pm and Thursday at 6pm.

Southside with You (12A) Richard Tanne’s debut feature rewinds to the first date between two bright young lawyers destined for great things: Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson. At first, Michelle is sceptical of his motives but, as Barack steers their evening out towards a proper date, her defiance withers. A contemporary soundtrack, an engaging cast and some neat referential touches all add to the delight. Tuesday at 6.30pm and Wednesday at 8.30pm.
