Dallas Buyers Club; Hanif Kureishi; Inside Number 9
Dallas Buyers Club is based on the real life story of Ron Woodruff who fought to make new treatments available to patients with HIV and AIDS. The film is nominated for six Oscars - but is it a winner?
We discuss Hanif Kureishi's latest book, The Last Word. A tale of two men, an old novelist and his young biographer who comes to stay, so what does it reveal about writers and the art of writing?
Abi Morgan's new play The Mistress Contract is based on the 30 year arrangement of one couple - she provided sexual services to him, in exchange he provided her with a home and an income. But does a drama about their unconventional relationship shed any light on sex, sexuality or the impact of feminism?
Turner Prize winning sculptor Richard Deacon has worked over the last four decades with materials as diverse as steel, oak, laminates, marble and leather. What will visitors to a new exhibition of his work at Tate Britain make of the way he has combined the industrial with the organic?
And Inside Number 9 is the latest offering in the 'Horror Com' genre that Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith have made their own. How will their six new tales of the unexpected fare?
Tom Sutcliffe is joined by Miranda Carter, Lesley Lokko and Adam Mars-Jones.
