Neil Gaiman's How To Talk To Girls At Parties and rewatching old films in the #MeToo era
Arts news, interviews and reviews. Author Neil Gaiman on the film version of his story How To Talk To Girls At Parties. Plus, how easy is it to watch old movies with our children?
Neil Gaiman discusses the big-screen adaptation of his 2006 short story How To Talk To Girls At Parties. Directed by Hedwig and the Angry Inch director John Cameron Mitchell, the film tells the story of a teenage punk falling in love with an alien, and stars Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning, Ruth Wilson and Matt Lucas.
In our age of heightened awareness of racism, homophobia and sexism in culture, how easy is it to watch old movies with our children? Film historian Ian Christie and journalist Hadley Freeman discuss how to introduce favourite films from bygone eras to the next generation, without also passing on stereotypes of gender, sexuality and race.
Film critic Jason Solomons joins us live from the Cannes Film Festival to give us his insights into what we should be looking out for this year.
