Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a highly-functioning autistic forensic accountant who prefers numbers to people. (Actually sounds like quite a few accountants I've met!). He’s a mental calculator who tracks insider financial deceptions for numerous criminal organisations provided to him by an anonymous voice on his phone. (Which is very unlike the accountants I've met!). With the Treasury Department's Crime Enforcement Division starting to close in, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise. Directed by Gavin O-Connor, this 2016 American crime-thriller is entertaining, fast paced and action-packed.

I, Daniel Blake is a 2016 British-French-German drama film directed by Ken Loach and starring Dave Johns as Daniel Blake.

Daniel Blake (59) has worked as a joiner most of his life in Newcastle. Now, for the first time ever, he needs help from the State. He crosses paths with a single mother Katie and her two young children, Daisy and Dylan. Katie's only chance to escape a one-roomed homeless hostel in London has been to accept a flat in a city she doesn't know, some 300 miles away. Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man's land, caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy as played out against the rhetoric of 'striver and skiver' in modern day Britain. With equal amounts of humour, warmth and despair, the journey is heartfelt and emotional until the end.

It won the Palme d'Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and the Prix du public at the 2016 Locarno International Film Festival.

A Street Cat Named Bob is a 2016 British comedy drama which is based on the book of the same name by James Bowen.

James Bowen (Luke Treadaway) is a homeless and a recovering drug addict who is running low on his luck. He’s given a last chance to turn his life around by his support worker, who helps him to find his own flat to live in. As James attempts to build a life and future for himself by busking in Covent Garden, he struggles to survive as the London crowd passes him by. Whilst in the bath one day, he hears a break-in and finds a ginger cat (Bob) in his kitchen eating the corn flakes. Thinking it belongs to a neighbour, he sets out to find the owner but with no luck concluding that it must be a stray. Over the next few days, the cat continues to linger on the estate, and James discovers an infected wound on the animal’s leg. He takes the cat to be treated by a charity vet and from that point onwards, the two lives become entwined.

It's a heart-warming story for all the family about one man and his cat, and the power our furry friends have to love, heal and protect their humans. And Bob's starring role performing as himself is simply wonderful.
