It's Thursday and that means movies in The Culture Studio!

Film critics Pasquale Iannone and Eddie Harrison review 'Gravity' (Sandra Bullock, George Clooney), 'Seduced and Abandoned' (James Toback, Alec Baldwin) and we take a look at an Orson Welles classic which is re-released on DVD this week; 'Journey Into Fear'.

Our focus on film continues with the French Film Festival which kicks off today. Director and co-founder Richard Mowe joins Janice to give an overview of this year's highlights and acclaimed French director Sylvain Chomet discusses his first ever live-action-feature, 'Attila Marcel'.

Staying in the French vein we wish happy 100th birthday to Albert Camus with a new translation of his novel 'The Outsider' by Sandra Smith.

And author Dame Margaret Drabble drops by to discuss her new book 'The Pure Gold Baby'.
