Mark and Simon’s guests are director Phyllida Lloyd and producer Sharon Horgan, who talk about their new film Herself, about a young mother who escapes her abusive husband and fights back against a broken housing system.
Mark reviews Leos Carax’s collaboration with Ron and Russell Mael of Sparks, Annette; Misha and the Wolves, the story of a woman whose holocaust memoir took the world by storm; Marvel’s Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, about the master of unarmed weaponry-based Kung Fu, who is forced to confront his past after being drawn into the Ten Rings organization; drama The Champion of Auschwitz, the story of the pre-war boxing champion Tadeusz "Teddy" Pietrzykowski, who in 1940 arrives with the first transport of prisoners to the newly created concentration camp; Here Today, Billy Crystal’s comedy drama about a veteran comedy writer who meets a New York street singer; Wildfire, the story of two sisters who grew up on the fractious Irish border; and Kay Cannon’s modern take on Cinderella.
Plus we’ll be attempting to solve those maddening movies you half-remember from years ago in WTF - What’s That Film.
Mark and Simon also talk you through the best and worst films on subscription-free TV next week, and recommend a home entertainment purchase in DVD of the Week.
