Star Wars The Force Awakens subtitled (12a) 120 mins

***** 5 stars! (from everyone!) It’s three decades on from the events of Return of the Jedi… On a desert planet, tough loner Rey (Daisy Ridley) plies her trade as a scavenger. Meanwhile, a stormtrooper named Finn (John Boyega) finds himself in great danger, the villainous Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) wields a cool crucifix lightsaber, and an X-Wing pilot named Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) is sent on a mission by a princess. Director J.J. Abrams brings these intriguing plot strands together to launch a spectacular new trilogy. Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher are among the returning members of the original Star Wars cast. 5 Oscar nominations.

3D where indicated. Please ask your nearest cinema to screen this film with subtitles!
