Welcome back to Backstage, the film and TV review podcast from Sky News.
Claire Gregory, Stevie Wong, and Katie Spencer get stuck into this week’s best bits, including the cinema release of Matilda the Musical.
Miss Trunchbull herself, Dame Emma Thompson, joins the podcast to chat about why she loves making films for families.
Meanwhile new movie, She Said, follows the story of the journalists who broke the story that set off the #MeToo movement, and brought down one of Hollywood’s most powerful producers. Actress Carey Mulligan tells Backstage a bit about how her industry has changed since then.
Just to warn you, in our She Said review, we will be discussing sexual assault. The review is from 15:20 to 27:54 – if you’d rather listen to something else, feel free to skip through this bit.
Elsewhere, The Addams family return, with daughter Wednesday leading her own series on Netflix. Find out how star Jenna Ortega felt about working with previous Wednesday, Christina Ricci, on the show.
Have you ever shared a bed with someone, but never actually met them? We review new rom-com The Flatshare on Paramount+, based on the best-selling book by Beth O’Leary.
Plus, The Guardians of the Galaxy are back for Christmas; Neighbours has been saved from the TV scrapheap by Amazon’s Freevee service; and we look at Claudia Winkleman’s new BBC competition series The Traitors.
