British movies get pride of place on the latest edition Talking Pictures, presented by London Mums’ resident film critic, Freda Cooper. Drama 45 Years is in the spotlight and, with trophies from Berlin and Edinburgh already under its belt, Freda’s predicting more awards success, especially for one of its stars, Charlotte Rampling. You heard it here first!
Out on DVD this week, there’s a newly restored version of the Ealing comedy classic, The Maggie, alongside Disney’s live action of Cinderella, which has a mainly British cast – and a British director as well!
There’s also the new top five at the British box office, plus a look a the line-up for this year’s Venice Film Festival, which opens next week. Your essential guide to the movies is packed into less than twenty minutes and you can hear it on iTunes, TuneIn and on SoundCloud.
Now all you need to do is plug in those earphones, relax and enjoy!
Film critic and radio presenter Freda Cooper has been a movie fan all her life – the best qualification for the job! A contributor to a number of film websites, she also presents her weekly podcast, Talking Pictures, a finalist in the UK Podcasters Awards. Her movie blog, formerly The Coops Review, is now also called Talking Pictures, and was shortlisted at this year’s UK Blog Awards. And you can hear her film reviews every Friday morning on BBC Surrey and BBC Sussex!
