Paul Giamatti in Win Win; documentary maker Adam Curtis; Danger Mouse

With John Wilson.

In a new film Win Win, Paul Giamatti plays a disheartened lawyer who moonlights as a high school wrestling coach, and whose life is turned upside down with the arrival of the troubled mother of his star athlete. The director is Tom McCarthy, whose previous films include The Station Agent and The Visitor. Natalie Haynes reviews

Documentary maker Adam Curtis, who brought us The Power of Nightmares, talks about his new three-part TV series All Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace, which examines how we've been beguiled by computers and how the myths we've woven around them have had a world-wide impact on economics, ecology and science.

Chart-topping songwriter and producer Danger Mouse discusses his new album Rome, which is inspired by Italian film soundtracks of the 1960s, and features singers Jack White and Norah Jones along with musicians who performed on the original recordings of scores by Ennio Morricone.

Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller - one of the judges of the Art Fund Prize for museums or galleries - has been keeping an audio diary for Front Row as he visits contenders for this year's Prize. In his second report, Jeremy travels to the renovated Polar Museum in Cambridge, the Hertford Museum, and the Roman Baths Museum in Bath.
