LONDON CRITICS CIRCLE FILM AWARDS - MAD MAX: FURY ROAD IS FILM OF THE YEAR


British and Irish talent won the night, appropriately, at the London Critics Circle Film Awards. Mad Max: Fury Road won the top awards, and 45 Years claimed two well-earned acting awards plus the British Film of the Year prize. All in all, it's a fine slate of winners from a fine slate of nominees, and a pleasant tonic to what was a rather dissatisfying bunch of BAFTA nominations last week. Take a look below:
