AT THE MOVIES #794                   TALL TALES

Simon Morris looks at three films – one true, one based on an important issue, and one from the Twilight Zone.

The Professor and Madman tells the story of the unlikely pair who helped create the Oxford English Dictionary.  Starring Mel Gibson and Sean Penn.

Working Woman is an Israeli film that offers unexpected angles to the old story of sexual harassment in the workplace.  Directed by Michal Aviad.

And The Lighthouse is a unique-looking drama that plays like an old folk-tale of two men driven mad in a lighthouse off the coast of New England.  Stars the Oscar-nominated Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson (Twilight).
