The Fighter (Momentum Pictures): The story of boxer ‘Irish’ Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg) and his half-brother/trainer Dickie Eklund (Christian Bale) is brought to the screen with formidable skill and energy by director David O’Russell. Set in Lowell, Massachusetts, it also explores the tensions within their large Irish family, which include his tough mother-manager (Melissa Leo), father (Jack McGee), several sisters and Micky’s girlfriend (Amy Adams).

Rabbit Hole (Lionsgate): Adapted for the screen by David Lindsay-Abaire from his own Pulitzer Prize-winning play, this is the story of a married couple (Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart) struggling to cope with the loss of their young child. Director John Cameron-Mitchell treats the subject with sensitivity, the two leads are excellent and Miles Teller is terrific in a key supporting role. [Buy on DVD from Amazon UK]
