A real life Dame graces the hot seat for The Big Interview in the latest edition of Talking Pictures. With the Oscar-nominated Trumbo out on DVD, Helen Mirren talks about her role in the movie, as well as Hollywood in the ’50s.
New releases in the spotlight are animation The Secret Life Of Pets and the bittersweet British tragi-comedy, Adult Life Skills. And London Mums’ resident film critic, Freda Cooper, casts her eye over the other new DVDs, steamy drama A Bigger Splash and documentary, I Am Belfast.
The new top five at the British box office gets a brand new number one, as well as a re-shuffle, and there’s also the week’s movie news. Your essential guide to the movies is crammed into 20 minutes. It’s on iTunes, TuneIn and right here:
