Beasts of the Southern Wild, Hyde Park Picture House, One word: amazing. Innovative director Benh Zeitlin boldly goes where none have gone before, to stunning effect, with the help of the best acting you’ll ever see from a nine-year old in the confusingly-named Quvenzhané Wallis. I challenge you to watch the trailer and not want to see it immediately.

Friday 30 November
Love (Amour), The Hyde Park Picture House, It’s a bit boring, and it’s all in French, but if you want to look cultured and high-brow then Amour is your way to pass with flying colours. It won the Palme d’Or, you know.

Sightseers, Hyde Park Picture House, put it bluntly, fucked up. This isn’t, however, a bad thing; the darker and weirder this film gets, the more deliciously entertaining it becomes. Sure it’s a ‘romantic comedy’ at heart, but don’t say we didn’t warn you when skulls start cracking.

Undiscovered Leeds, final day of the auditions at LUU

Fruity Glitter Ball, LUU, christmas celebrations hit our favourite union’s best student night

SATURDAY MATINEE, Top Cat, Hyde Park Picture House, 2011 remake of classic cartoon: not exactly everyone’s cup of tea; online critics have called it ‘effortless and cynical’, ‘one of the worst-ever spin-offs of a TV series’, and even ‘upsetting’. Telegraph reviewer Robbie Collins called it ‘a grievous insult not only to the original cartoon but animation in general, and also arguably cats’. It’s not exactly The Godfather, but hey, what else are you going to do with your Saturday afternoon?

Saturday Comedy Sessions, Hifi; three comedians- Andre Vincent, Carl Donnely, Dave Twentyman (followed by Boogaloo– blues, boogalo, ska and soul)

One Man to His Wife, Alec Clegg Studio, [email protected] (final night)
