Sofia Coppola on The Beguiled, Neil McGregor, Plywood, Children's Poetry prizewinner
Sofia Coppola on The Beguiled, Neil McGregor's Queer Icon, the virtues of Plywood, and Kate Wakeling, winner of the CLiPPA Children's Poetry prize.
Sofia Coppola discusses her new film The Beguiled starring Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst and Colin Farrell. Described as a feminist remake of the Clint Eastwood version in 1971, Coppola explains her approach, why she decided to cut the black character Hallie, and teaching the cast of women to be Southern belles.
For our Queer Icons series, museum director Neil MacGregor chooses The Warren Cup, a Roman goblet from the British Museum that depicts men making love.
Design journalist Corrine Julius looks at the new exhibition about plywood at the Victoria and Albert Museum and discovers its surprising versatility and appeal.
Plus Kirsty speaks to Kate Wakeling, winner of this year's CLiPPA prize for Children's poetry, about her debut collection Moon Juice.
