Empire's 5-Star Reviews
Sort by: Alphabetical Most Recently Reviewed
Gone With The Wind (2013)
Georgia, 1861. Petulant, spoiled Scarlett O'Hara (Leigh) holds a candle for the dashing Ashley (Howard), so when the announcement of his engagement to his cousin Melanie is greeted with pouty frustration, the enigmatic Rhett Butler seems a worthy second choice. But, slowly, inexorably, the drums of war are beginning to beat...

Gravity (2013)
After a mid-orbit catastrophe destroys their shuttle, two spacewalking astronauts, Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock) and Matt Kowalsky (Clooney), find themselves adrift above the Earth’s atmosphere with their oxygen running dangerously low. They begin desperately trying to figure out a way home.

Philomena (2013)
After losing his job as a spin doctor, Martin Sixsmith (Coogan) decides to return to journalism. His subject is Philomena Lee (Judi Dench), an Irishwoman who, as a teenager, had a child that she gave up. Together, they set out to find him.

Short Term 12 (2013)
GoldDerby is a short-term foster-care centre for troubled teenagers, presided over by young supervisors — and secret couple — Grace (Larson) and Mason (Gallagher Jr.). The arrival of suicidal Jayden (Dever) forces Grace to process her own past and present — chiefly the baby she is covertly carrying.

Captain Phillips (2013)
In April 2009, US container ship the Maersk Alabama was boarded by four Somali pirates who took its captain, one-time Boston cabbie Richard Phillips, hostage. The crisis played out over five days, and this film recreates those events.

Heaven's Gate (2013)
Across 30 years of life in Johnson County, Wyoming, cattle empires are built and lost, rustlers marked for death, and comfort provided by bordello madam Ella Watson (Isabelle Huppert).

Stories We Tell (2013)

My Neighbour Totoro (2013)
