Our guide to the most interesting movies coming to UK/ROI cinemas in November.


November sees Netflix make a statement by granting theatrical releases to three of their most prestigious dramas to date, including the latest from Martin Scorsese. We've also got the latest collaboration between Ian McKellen and Bill Condon, a hard-hitting Australian period thriller and Christian Bale's latest bid for an Oscar.

Here are the 10 movies we're most excited to see in UK/ROI cinemas this November.




Luce

Acclaimed on its US release a while back, director Julius Onah's Luce stars Kelvin Harrison Jr as the titular Luce, a former African child soldier adopted by a white American couple (Tim Roth, Naomi Watts). A successful student and athlete, Luce comes into conflict with a teacher (Octavia Spencer) who begins to suspect he may pose a danger to the school.

In cinemas November 8th.

The Irishman

Netflix's biggest coup to date is landing Martin Scorsese, and thankfully they're granting a big screen release. Inspired by Charles Brandt's book 'I heard You Paint Houses', The Irishman tells the story of Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran (Robert De Niro), who reflects on his life as a Mafia hitman through the miracle of de-aging technology. The movie sees the return of Joe Pesci to the screen, with Al Pacino in the role of ill-fated union boss Jimmy Hoffa.

In cinemas November 8th.




Le Mans '66

The 1966 edition of the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hour Endurance Race played host to an epic battle between the dominant Ferrari team and the underdog Ford. Director James Mangold's dramatisation stars Christian Bale as driver Ken Miles and Matt Damon as engineer Carroll Shelby, who work together to end Ferrari's dominance and secure victory for Ford.

In cinemas November 15th.

Rian Johnson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi; Looper; Brick) pays homage to Agatha Christie with Knives Out, a star-studded whodunit in which Daniel Craig plays a detective investigating the suspicious death of an elderly crime author (Christopher Plummer).

The Nightingale

A common theme in Australian westerns concerns the troubled relationship between British colonialists and both the indigenous aborigine population and Irish prisoners exiled to the continent. Director Jennifer Kent (The Babadook) explores this dynamic with The Nightingale, a gruesome and hard-hitting film which follows a young Irish convict (Aisling Franciosi) who teams up with an aboriginal tracker (Baykali Ganambarr) to seek revenge against the British soldiers (Sam Claflin) who killed her husband and child.

In cinemas November 29th.




The Two Popes
