Mark and Simon’s guest is Michael Gandolfini, who’s talking about his film The Many Saints of Newark, the Sopranos prequel. Plus we have reviews of The Green Knight, David Lowery’s fantasy retelling of the medieval story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, starring Dev Patel and Alicia Vikander; The Alpinist, about the climber Marc-André Leclerc; documentary Oasis Knebworth 1996, about the band’s two concerts in August 1996, when 250,000 fans converged on Knebworth Park ; Balloon, about a family’s struggles against the conflicting dictates of nature, spirituality, politics, and free will; Sweetheart, about a socially awkward, environmentally conscious teenager who is dragged to a coastal holiday park by her painfully 'normal' family, where she becomes unexpectedly captivated by a chlorine smelling, sun-loving lifeguard named Isla; Gagarine, about a boy who fights to save his home town - which he shares with his namesake, Yuri Gagarin - from demolition; and Mark takes another look at David Lynch’s 1984 film Dune. And we’ll be attempting to solve those maddening movies you half-remember from years ago in WTF - What’s That Film. Mark and Simon also talk you through the best and worst films on subscription-free TV next week, and recommend a home entertainment purchase in DVD of the Week.
