AT THE MOVIES – No school like the old-school

Simon Morris officially bails out of the youth market with three movies that prefer old-fashioned story smarts to trendy click-bait.  Bridget Jones’s baby finds new angles to a story that couldn’t be more traditional.  Don’t Breathe is an object lesson in tension.  And Captain Fantastic asks what’s so funny about peace, love and understanding?

Featured this week – Bridget Jones’s Baby, starring Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey and Emma Thompson.

Don’t Breathe is a dark-house thriller, produced by Xena and Evil Dead’s Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert.

And Captain Fantastic features Viggo Mortensen as a father who wants to bring his children up away from the excesses of modern, corporate America.
