Gold Digger Edition: Bits & Pieces

With her joyously irreverent live-action reinterpretation of the famous 16th-century puppet show, writer/director Mirrah Foulkes turns the traditional story of Punch and Judy on its head and brings to life a devilishly delightful tale, starring Mia Wasikowska (Crimson Peak, Alice in Wonderland, Jane Eyre) and Damon Herriman (Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, Mindhunter, Top of the Lake). In the outlandish town of Seaside, located nowhere near the coast, puppeteers Judy and Punch are trying to resurrect their marionette show. The show is a hit due to Judy’s superior puppeteering, but Punch’s driving ambition and penchant for a drink lead to an ill-fated turn of events that Judy must avenge.

1933. Gareth Jones (James Norton, Little Women, Happy Valley, McMafia) is an ambitious Welsh journalist who gained fame after his report on being the first foreign journalist to fly with Hitler. On leaving a government role, Jones decides to travel to Moscow in an attempt to get an interview with Stalin himself. Hearing murmurs of government-induced famine, Jones travels clandestinely to Ukraine, where he witnesses the atrocities of man-made starvation. Deported back to London, Jones publishes an article revealing the horrors he witnessed but is accused of being a liar by those who have an interest in silencing him. As the death count mounts, Jones has to fight for the truth.



The debut feature, Sons of Denmark, from director Ulaa Salim is a powerful, unnerving and provocative film that looks at the impact of radicalised society, set in an alternate (though all-too-believable) Denmark.

The Report, a film based on the shocking real-life investigation into the CIA’s post-9/11 “enhanced interrogation” practices, which we thought could be of interest to you. Starring Oscar nominee Adam Driver (Marriage Story, Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi), THE REPORT opens in UK cinemas on 15 November.

In the 15 years since SUPER SIZE ME, the fast-food industry has undergone a makeover. Today, chain restaurants tout food that’s “healthy,” “organic,” and “natural.” Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock explores this new reality with an approach even more immersive and subversive than that used for his first film: he sets out to open his own chicken franchise. We follow him every step of the way, from raising poultry and conjuring recipes to designing the brand and scouting a location. Spurlock brings his disarming humour to uncover the truths and lies behind this multibillion-dollar industry.

Pedro, a 70-year-old gay nurse, and a big fan of Greta Garbo, needs to find an empty bed in the hospital where he works to save his best friend, Daniela. To do so he decides to help Jean, a criminal in police custody, escape from the premises. But then, worried about Jean’s health, Pedro sets the criminal up in his apartment to treat his wounds. The two wind up having a highly-charged affair that brings to the surface Pedro’s own solitude, now augmented by Daniela’s imminent death.
