Son of Saul, Mark Haddon, Kings of War, Love Nina, Pablo Bronstein at Tate

A review of the week's cultural highlights. Son of Saul, Mark Haddon's short stories, Kings of War, Love Nina, Pablo Bronstein at Tate.

Son of Saul is an award-laden Hungarian film dealing with the sonderkommandos at Auschwitz, Jewish inmates who were forced to prepare and mislead new arrivals.
Mark Haddon's latest book is a collection of rather dark short stories which he hopes can "create empathy for unloveable people in difficult circumstances".
Belgian theatre director Ivo van Hove has condensed several Shakespeare royal plays into Kings of War; four and a half hours in Dutch, telling English history.
Nick Hornby has adapted Nina Stibbe's Love Nina for BBC TV
Pablo Bronstein brings dance to Tate Britain
Tom Sutcliffe's guests are Ekow Eshun, Antonia Quirke and Kate Bassett. The producer is Oliver Jones.
