PENELOPE (U)

THIS modern-day fairytale stars Christina Ricci as a young woman with a porcine nose, the result of a family curse, who battles to find enduring love in an image-obsessed world. Ricci is adorable but the script could do with more wit and originality. Also stars James McAvoy and Richard E Grant. *****

THINGS WE LOST IN THE FIRE (15)

HALLE BERRY, Benicio Del Toro and David Duchovny star in this muted yet powerful study of grief and redemption. When her husband is shot and killed, a widow invites his best friend to stay in the family home.

Berry and Del Toro deliver compelling performances as emotionally damaged creatures, united in mourning. *****

UNDERDOG (U)

A LIVELY adventure about a supercharged beagle with a nose for trouble and a desire to save people from a mad scientist. Not the finest pedigree family film, but there are sufficient slapstick interludes to keep younger audiences entertained. *****
