Catch up with the world of the movies, courtesy of a holiday double helping of Talking Pictures, with London Mums’ resident film critic, Freda Cooper.
The Christmas edition reviews Daddy’s Home, the new comedy with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, as well as Ron Howard’s In The Heart Of The Sea. And the film’s star, Chris Hemsworth, talks about making the movie – and THAT weight loss – in The Big Interview. On DVD, it’s British gangster movie North V South and the Talking Pictures Top Film of 2015 is revealed with a flourish.
The New Year edition of the show waves goodbye to 2015 with reviews of David O Russell’s Joy and Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl. Alicia Vikander talks about her role in the film in The Big Interview and on DVD there’s intriguing documentary The Wolfpack. Plus there’s a look ahead to the best films of early 2016.
Your essential guide to the movies is exactly 20 minutes long – or 40, if you binge listen to both episodes! – and it’s available on iTunes, TuneIn and right here:
