AT THE MOVIES #802 BEGGARS AND CHOOSERS
Simon Morris looks at an unusually diverse collection of school holiday attractions, but decides to look at three films aimed at more adult audiences.
White riot is a documentary set in Britain’s “winter of discontent” in the late 70s – the era of punk, the rise of the National Front, and the Rock against Racism movement.
Greed stars Steve Coogan as a fashion multi-millionaire, throwing himself a wildly expensive birthday party at his tax-haven Mediterranean mansion. Co-stars Isla Fisher, David Mitchell and a lion called Clarence. Directed by Michael Winterbottom (The trip to Greece).
And The Burnt Orange Heresy finds a corrupt art critic trying to get an interview with a famously reclusive painter. Stars Claes Bang (The square), Elizabeth Debicki (Widows) and Mick Jagger.
