ON AIR
French drama with Karin Viard as radio agony aunt by night, coping with personal agony by day. An occasionally eyebrow-raising character study of loneliness. 3/5

MT ZION
Creditable acting and directing debuts for Stan Walker and Tearepa Kahi respectively, but could be tighter and clearer in the telling. Watch for a showstopping moment at the end. 3/5

SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK
Bipolar son comes home; family, friends and strangers struggle to adjust. Shouty and deliberately uncomfortable. Not my favourite David O Russell. 3/5

THE MAGISTRATE
John Lithgow shines in this amusing pop-up music box of a Pinero farce. 3/5

STEP UP TO THE PLATE
Returning for a short season, Paul Lacoste’s lovely, contemplative study of chef Michel Bras passing the baton to son Sébastien. 4/5
