Davina McCall Edition: Bits & Pieces

Davina McCall

Davina McCall Edition: Bits & Pieces – IN BROAD DAYLIGHT reveals a little-known truth about residential care homes for the disabled that hides beneath the headlines. Written and directed by Lawrence Kwan Chun Kan, the film recalls the likes of Spotlight and The Post, where dogged and fearless journalists uncover alarming levels of rampant abuse and corruption.

After a group of would-be criminals kidnap the 12-year-old ballerina daughter of a powerful underworld figure, all they have to do to collect a $50 million ransom is watch the girl overnight. In an isolated mansion, the captors start to dwindle, one by one, and they discover, to their mounting horror, that they’re locked inside with no normal little girl. 

Director Tom Stuart’s GOOD BOY, inspired by a personal experience of grief, has officially been shortlisted for a 2024 Academy® Award. The hotly anticipated quirky short takes you on the lighthearted journey of a desperate young man (Ben Whishaw) as he drives his battered VW van with his mother (Marion Bailey) in the back, a dead pigeon in the passenger seat, and a growing sense of desperation. 



A young woman’s fateful decision in 1960s China reverberates across space and time into the present day. When the laws of nature inexplicably unravel before their eyes, a close-knit group of brilliant scientists join forces with an unorthodox detective to confront the greatest threat in humanity’s history. The series stars (in alpha order) Jovan Adepo, John Bradley, Rosalind Chao, Liam Cunningham, Eiza González, Jess Hong, Marlo Kelly, Alex Sharp, Sea Shimooka, Zine Tseng, Saamer Usmani, Benedict Wong and Jonathan Pryce.

In WHICH BRINGS ME TO YOU, two romantic burnouts, Jane and Will, are immediately drawn to each other at a mutual friend’s wedding. After a disastrous hookup in the coatroom, the two spend the next 24 hours together, trading candid confessions of messy histories and heartbreak, on the off chance that this fling might be the real thing. Lucy Hale and Nat Wolff star in this hilarious tale from the team behind The Hating Game.

Set in France in the late 19th century, the film follows the life of Dodin Bouffant (Benoît Magimel) as the preeminent chef living with his personal cook and lover Eugénie (Oscar®-winner Juliette Binoche). Eugénie and Dodin share a long history of gastronomy and love. While emotions remain contained, the culinary discoveries are, on the other hand, breathtakingly exquisite. The only hitch is that Eugénie refuses to marry Dodin. So, the food lover decides to do something he has never done before: cook for her. 

In the enormously poignant follow-up to her international breakthrough film, The Chambermaid, director Lila Avilés nestles in with one family over the course of a single, meaningful day. Tótem is told largely from the perspective of 7-year-old Sol (the marvelously naturalistic Naíma Sentíes), as her mother (Montserrat Marañón) and extended relatives prepare for the birthday party of the girl’s father (Mateo Garcia). As the hours wear on, building to an event both anticipated and dreaded, the fragile bonds and unsure future of the family become ever clearer. Avilés confirms her formidable skill at expressing the subtlest contours of her characters’ inner lives in this emotionally expansive and affecting drama.

STUDIOCANAL and Monumental Pictures release the international teaser trailer and poster for BACK TO BLACK, the highly anticipated feature film from acclaimed filmmaker and visual artist Sam Taylor-Johnson to be released in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on 12 April 2024.
