Hollywood royalty graces this week’s Talking Pictures. Triple Oscar winner Meryl Streep takes up The Big Interview hot seat to talk about her latest movie, Florence Foster Jenkins – and learning how to sing badly! And we hear from the film’s British screenwriter, Nicholas Martin, about writing for the big screen.
Also in the spotlight this week is new release Knight Of Cups, from director Terrence Malick, and the re-release of the 1954 cult western, Johnny Guitar. On DVD, there’s Japanese classic, Ran, Ferrell and Wahlberg in comedy Daddy’s Home and a decidedly soggy Chris Hemsworth in Ron Howard’s In The Heart Of The Sea.
There’s the new top five at the British box office – complete with a new number one – plus the latest movie news. Your essential guide to movies, with London Mums’ resident film critic, Freda Cooper, is on iTunes, TuneIn and right here:
