MR TURNER (12A, SOUTH HOLLAND CENTRE CINEMA, FROM MONDAY)

Timothy Spall puts in a stand-out performance as legendary British artist JMW Turner in Mike Leigh’s acclaimed biographical drama. Leigh’s film covers the last quarter century of Turner’s anarchic life – which sees him both celebrated and reviled – as he creates some of Britain’s best-loved works of art.
