Simon Morris looks at two contrasting female-directed movies, and a new documentary about a New Zealand legend who built an empire from a glorified shed.

McLaren is Roger Donaldson’s passion-project - the story of Bruce McLaren, the Kiwi kid from Remuera who conquered the international racing scene first as a driver, then as a car designer.

Wonder Woman has been a long time coming. Can director Patty (Monster) Jenkins succeed where so many fans have failed?

And Adult life skills is a little movie about a woman making even smaller films in her shed. Director Rachel Tunnard taps into her love of Baywatch, Jane Austen, bobble-hats and the band Whitesnake to make the best movie of the week.
