Michael Douglas on Liberace, Audrey Tautou on Therese Desqueyroux
Francine Stock talks to Michael Douglas about his role as Liberace in Steven Soderbergh's bio-pic Behind the Candelabra, chronicling the flamboyant entertainer's 5 year relationship with Scott Thorson. The film features a starry cast, including Matt Damon as Scott Thorson and Rob Lowe as the infamous plastic surgeon Dr Startz.
Audrey Tautou talks about her eponymous role in François Mauriac's legendary 1927 novel of French provincial life, Therese Desqueyroux, in French film director Claude Miller's final film.
But how does a writer face the challenge of adapting a much loved novel for the screen? Byzantium screen writer Moira Buffini, who adapted Jane Eyre for the cinema in 2011, and Deborah Moggach, who adapted Pride and Prejudice in 2005, discuss whether the resulting film reveals much more about current society's values than the age in which the work was originally written.
Shane Meadow's new documentary "Stone Roses: Made Of Stone" is about the iconic Manchester band of the late 80's and 90's. Meadows had unprecedented access to the band for a year after their reunion in October 2011. Film critic Dave Calhoun discusses Made of Stone's contribution to the way in which British films have explored particularly British music.
