Encanto, the 60th feature film from Walt Disney Animation Studios, is the colourful tale of a Colombian family in which everyone has superhuman powers – everyone, that is, except for one teenager, Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz). Directed by Byron Howard and Jared Bush (Zootopia, renamed Zootropolis in some countries), along with Charise Castro Smith, the film is a celebration of Colombian culture, a tribute to the literary tradition of magical realism, and a musical with songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda. But at its heart, Encanto is one girl's coming-of-age story. "I was so excited about creating this character who is flawed, awkward, and feels like a real 14-year-old struggling to figure out their identity and their self-worth,” Smith told IndieWire’s Bill Desowitz. “And it really resonated with me, having been an awkward 14-year-old with glasses and curly hair at one point in my life."



Released internationally on 24 November

House of Gucci《古驰家族》


Ridley Scott's true-crime drama is adapted from a book by Sara Gay Forden. "I think this was a story where life is stranger than fiction," Forden told Rachel Tashjian in GQ. She’s not wrong. The story begins with Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver) trying to wrestle control of the family business from his uncle Aldo (Al Pacino), with the help of his ambitious wife, Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga). But a jet-setting saga of luxury fashion and dynastic feuding ends up with one Gucci hiring a hitman to murder another. Scott's previous two films, All The Money In The World and The Last Duel, have been concerned with the dark corrosive power of extreme wealth, and this one, co-starring Jeremy Irons and Jared Leto, promises to be just as pointed.



Released on 24 November in the US, Canada and France and on 26 November in the UK and Ireland

Having launched his directorial career with a run of Shakespeare adaptations, Kenneth Branagh has devoted the past decade to such splashy, big-budget studio fare as Thor, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Cinderella, and Artemis Fowl. Now, though, he has made his most personal film, a small-scale black-and-white drama which sees the Northern Irish capital through the eyes of a working-class boy (Jude Hill) in the late-1960s: Branagh himself was born in the city and lived there until he moved to England at the age of nine. "The result is engaging, tender film-making which tugs at the heart-strings, spurred by a sympathetic cast," writes Fionnuala Halligan at Screen Daily. That cast features Jamie Dornan and Caitriona Balfe as the boy's parents, and Judi Dench and Ciarán Hinds as his grandparents. Winner of the People's Choice award at the Toronto International Film Festival, Belfast is already being tipped as a best picture contender at the Oscars.

肯尼思·布拉纳用一连串莎士比亚作品改编电影开启了自己的导演生涯,过去十年他又投入重金拍摄了《雷神》、《一触即发》、《灰姑娘》和《阿特米斯的奇幻历险》等大片。但是现在这部《贝尔法斯特》却是他最个人化的作品。这部小成本黑白片通过一个工人阶级男孩(裘德·希尔饰演)的视角来看上世纪60年代末期的北爱尔兰首都。布拉纳自己就是在贝尔法斯特出生的,直到9岁搬到英格兰之前他一直生活在那里。菲奥诺拉·哈里根在《银幕日报》上评论道:“结果他拍出了一部非常有吸引力又动人心弦的影片。演员阵容也非常有感染力。” 詹米·多南和凯特瑞娜·巴尔夫饰演男孩的父母,朱迪·丹奇和塞伦·希德饰演男孩的祖父母。这部电影在多伦多国际电影节上获得了人民选择奖,并被认为是下一届奥斯卡奖最佳影片的有力角逐者。


Released on 11 November in Italy, 12 November in the US and Canada and 25 November in Portugal

Drive My Car《驾驶我的车》


With a three-hour running time, Drive My Car may be one of the year's longest films, but it's also one of the most acclaimed: Ryusuke Hamaguchi's meditative drama has a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes, and it won the best screenplay award when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. Adapted from a 40-page Haruki Murakami short story, Drive My Car revolves around an actor-turned director, Yusuke Kafuku (Hidetoshi Nishijima), who is happily married to a screenwriter, despite her numerous infidelities. Two years after his wife's sudden death, Yusuke accepts a job at a theatre festival in Hiroshima. As he is chauffeured to and from his rented house by a quiet young woman (Toko Miura), he slowly comes to terms with betrayal and bereavement.



Released on 18 November in Russia, 19 November in the UK, and 24 November in the US

There's a whole cottage industry – or maybe palace industry – dedicated to putting Princess Diana's tragic life-story on screen, with notable products including The Crown television series, a biopic starring Naomi Watts, and the already notorious Diana: The Musical. But Spencer is still unique. Directed by the Chilean auteur Pablo Larraín, and written by Steven Knight, this hallucinatory drama imagines a long weekend in Sandringham over Christmas 1991, as Diana (Kristen Stewart) realises that she can't remain a part of the Royal Family. "A female-centric study of power and corruption," said Charlotte O'Sullivan in The Evening Standard, "Spencer proves every bit as rousing, and wrenching, as Yorgos Lanthimos' The Favourite... I sobbed the whole way home."



Released on 5 November in the UK, Ireland, Canada and the US
