    The Song of a Lost Boy

    ★★★★

    Daniel Quirke’s BAFTA-nominated short animation about a young choir boy who runs away after his voice breaks while in the middle of a solo. Not only this, but he has secrets about his identity.

    The story of this short film, which got a BAFTA nomination for Best Animated Short, concentrates on Ben, a choir boy who, after his voice disrupts mid solo, has a catastrophe of faith and chooses to escape. He ensues upon a gang of wanderers who take…

    The Owl and the Pussycat

    ★★★★★

    Mole Hill’s BAFTA-winning short animation. The Owl and the Pussycat set sail with their prized items on a quest in which they educate nothing and lose the whole lot apart from each other.

    Yorgos Lanthimos directs this period comedy-drama in which Queen Anne’s (Olivia Colman) relationship with Sarah Churchill (Rachel Weisz) is turned upside down by the arrival of Anne’s cousin Abigail (Emma Stone).

    Yorgos Lanthimos’s previous film was the horror film The Killing of a Sacred Deer, with Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman, which is my personal favourite from 2017 and also featured a star-making supporting performance from Barry Keoghan.

    Now, for his latest effort, Lanthimos chooses to go back to the…
