Sienna Miller discusses her latest role as a mother whose daughter goes missing, in her new film American Woman, directed by Jake Scott.

Our latest Front Row Booker Prize Book Group puts its questions to shortlisted author Elif Shafak about her novel 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World which tells the story of Leila, a woman whose body has died, but whose mind has a precious ten minutes to reflect on the joy, pain and injustice of her life as a prostitute in Istanbul.

Giri/Haji, which translates as Duty/Shame in English, is a new drama produced by the BBC and Netflix, about a Tokyo detective who travels to London in search of his presumed deceased brother. The script for the series is written in both Japanese and English. Kate Taylor-Jones reviews.
