AT THE MOVIES #761 IT’S HOW YOU TELL ‘EM
Simon Morris suggests the subject of a movie isn’t nearly as important as the person telling the story. He compares the old and new Hellboys, and talks to one of the new breed of English women directors.
Hellboy is a reboot of a series made famous by Guillermo del Toro. So can this film fill those very big – literally – shoes? Stars David Harbour and Ian McShane.
Where hands touch tells the untold story of the black children of the Rhineland, Germany, during World War Two. Director Amma Asante (Belle, A united kingdom) explains why she’s drawn to that sort of plot.
