    Rather surprisingly, the direction of the piece is much stronger than the writing. The hollowness of it all ensures that it's not smart enough to be a biting dissection or purely solid popcorn entertainment either.

    You might be fooled by the setup in terms of what to expect because the film becomes trickier and more fascinating as it progresses. Thomasin McKenzie and Anne Hathaway make the conflict work thematically.

    Playful tone and screenwriting have a delightful balance of imagination and offbeat sensibilities, and while the visuals don't exactly meet expectations, the film conveys its message coherently.

    Smileys: Screenplay, tone, Paul Walter Hauser

    Frowneys: Character design, Jacob Tremblay

    This horrendously written, directed and acted spinoff can't find a single reason to exist or inhabit its own dystopia. It's thematically incomprehensible and perhaps better if you don't see it.

    Smileys: Nothing

    Frowneys: Screenplay, characterisation, directing, acting, dialogue

    Warning: watching this might cause you Spain without the S.
