Roy Jenkins and guests gather for the annual ATC film review and discuss The Help, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and The Lady.


    The legendary film maker Sam Goldwyn is reputed to have said of one of his creations: ‘I don’t care if it doesn’t make a cent - so long as every man, woman and child in the country sees it.’

    Would that have been his verdict on any of the films we’ll be talking about today? We are reviewing just a few of the year’s DVD releases. They might have broken box office records, or made barely a cent, but would our panel be enthusiastic enough to want the world to watch them?

    Among the films to be discussed :
    The Help Cert 12
    The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Cert 12
    The Lady Cert 12

    And the panel’s personal choices:
    Safe House DVD cert 15
    Skyfall (in cinema 12A)
    The Sapphires (in cinema PG)
