Claudia Winkleman and Danny Leigh return for another episode of Film 2014. Under consideration this week is Non-Stop, an action thriller set on a transatlantic flight, starring Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore. Plus a discussion about the runners and riders for this year's Oscars. Danny Leigh interviews much-loved film director and screenwriter Wes Anderson about his career.
And the Oscar goes to...

Last year she won the Hatchet Job of the Year award for a piece on Rachel Cusk’s divorce memoir Aftermath: On Marriage and Separation.
Reviews of Non-Stop
Danny: It's an action movie Cluedo at 40,000 feet.....It's all pretty preposterous but the time does pass. The ideal place to see this film is on a dull transatlantic flight.
Camilla: I love this film. It was beyond preposterous. There was absolutely nothing in this film that could possibly happen. It was completely absurd from start to finish and I thought it was hilarious.
