AT THE MOVIES #727                   LOST IN NARRATION

Simon Morris wonders why some promising projects fail because something gets lost in the telling.

Solo: A Star Wars story gives Han Solo an origin picture, but will it be enough for the fans? Directed by Ron Howard and starring Alden Ehrenreich (Hail Caesar!) Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and actor/rapper Donald Glover.

The Bookshop seems to have everything going for it – a good cast, an attractive setting and a reputable book.  Does it deliver?  Stars Bill Nighy, Emily Mortimer and Patricia Clarkson.

And Kodachrome sends father and son on a road-trip to the last shop that develops photographic film.   Stars Ed Harris, Jason Sudeikis and Elizabeth Olsen.
