Ian McEwan's latest bok Nutshell, Sausage Party - a cartoon for stoners, Artangel at Reading gaol, Branagh as Archie Rice in The Entertainer, The Collection - haute couture on TV.

Ian McEwan's latest novel Nutshell tells the story from the point of view of a foetus.
Sausage Party is the sweariest, most vulgar cartoon film you will ever have seen. From the imagination of Seth Rogen, it imagines the world of sentient food
Artangel's project 'Inside- artists and writers in Reading Prison' is staged at the gaol where Oscar Wilde was incarcerated. It features work by contemporary artists reflecting on the themes of imprisonment and separation.
Kenneth Branagh reprises another role associated with Laurence Olivier; playing Archie Rice in John Osbourne's The Entertainer. He can't escape the comparisons but can he live up to expectations?
The Collection is a new TV drama series dealing with the not-so-glamorous world of haute couture.
