6:36 pm
these three points are the ones that keep us in second position, which is the position we're fighting for. that opens up the gap a little bit to chelsea. it is a very important result for us. the problem is you must be the best team at the end of the game, not only after the first half. we had a great chance today to get three points here. but we were not able to do this. chelsea's defeat means they've been overta ken by tottenha m, who left it late to beat struggling crystal palace. it threatened to be a frustrating afternoon for spurs, despite their dominance. even harry kane wasn't at his lethal goal—scoring best. although perhaps that miss doesn't look so bad up against serge aurier‘s bungled effort. but kane did come up with a goal for tottenham in the 88th minute, heading

think this performance represents good investment. there is an amazing reaction from people who see the olympic games, whether they love sport or do not follow sport, for the two weeks of the winter olympics, summer olympics and paralympics as well, people get engaged, people feel united over it, and you try to put a number on is it worth the values that we see, it is more complicated than that medal costs so many million or otherwise. the money you are seeing is buying into a huge system of sport in the country, and there are huge benefits from that. six nations rugby have confirmed they will investigate an incident in the tunnel between england and scotland players before yesterday's calcutta cup match, which was won by scotland at murrayfield. while in domestic rugby union, leicester won at allianz park for the first time after beating second—placed saracens 28 points

6:43 pm
hello and welcome to the film review on bbc news. to take us through this week's cinema releases is mark kermode. what have you been watching? interesting week, we have finding your feet, which i think is a british drama comedy. a dramedy! we have i, tonya with an astonishing performance by margot robbie who also produces. and dark river, a new film by clio barnard. finding your feet, even the poster looks like a quintessential british gathering. the poster doesn't do it any favours, it's aimed at the same audience that made
6:44 pm
best exotic marigold hotel a huge hit. the story begins with imelda staunton as lady sandra abbott on the eve of her retirement. she has her retirement planned out, she leads a very posh life and discovers suddenly that her husband has been having an affair. here is a clip. what the hell's going on? we were just... it's not what it looks like, sandra. sandra. sandra! sandra, wait. how long's it's been going on? let's not do this here. how long, mike? since we all went to sorrento. 0h, bloody hell. that's nearly five years ago! i've had enough of all this hide and seek, mike. how could you do this to me? you're supposed to be my friend. we even took you to the palace. i didn't mean for this to happen, sandra. oh, really?
6:45 pm
you knew precisely what you were doing! now, please calm down, sandra. rememberwhere you are. i know exactly where i am, in my own bloody home! i have spent my entire married life putting you and your career first, and what got me through was knowing that when you retired we would share our golden years together. but instead, you've traded me in for a newer model. and let me tell you, mike. she's had more than one previous owner. and all her bodywork is mainly filler! you laughed at least twice! exactly, because it's funny. she walks out and goes to stay with her sister with whom she is like chalk and cheese and her sister basically tells her, this life you have been leading is an artificial life and you have to learn to enjoy things more, she teaches her to go swimming in the hampstead pond and dance lessons where she meets characters
6:46 pm
likejoanna lumley and a character called charlie played by timothy spall. you know from the outset that that character is going to soften and discover more to life than material possessions and the dream of her husband's retirement. you know from the outset when she meets timothy spall and she finds him abrasive and difficult she will warm to him and you know from the outset amongst the comedy there will be tragedy and tears amongst laughs. the question is, how well this all plays out? i have to say rather better than i expected. it was charming and funny, not least because it's a great cast. they are throwing themselves into it and having a very good time. it is well directed. no cliche goes unturned. it owes a certain structural debt to nativity, the debbie isitt film, and in fact, funnily enough, it would've made more sense to release this in the run—up to christmas because there is slight christmas theme to it so it is odd that it's coming out now. despite your reservations about the posterm, which i understand, i thought it was funny and charming and i liked the performances and my heart went with it enough that when my head kept going,
6:47 pm
hang on, my heart went, just let it be, and i did and i enjoyed it. all right. 0k. you have seen i, tonya as well. it's a good watch. margot robbie stars and also produces. she was implicated in an attack and her career fell apart. it's been nominated for awards. the film takes the structure of telling contradictory stories. at the beginning, it says, "based on the totally true and utterly contradictory testimonies of its central characters" and during the narrative we see each of the central characters talking to the audience either through faux interviews or breaking the fourth wall, turning to the audience and going, "this didn't happen." but essentially it is a story of somebody who has come through and abusive background. through an abusive background. she is beaten by her husband. she is also attacked by her mother although the mother who is allisonjanney, says for heaven's sake, show me a family that don't have their ups and downs. it manages to balance, in my opinion, the serious subject matter of domestic abuse, which it is about, with also being filmed playing with post modern conventions in a way that
6:48 pm
reminded me of the film 2a—hour party people in which characters will turn up and go, "this didn't happen." it's a film about a story being told from lots of different perspectives with a brilliant central performance. i found it hugely watchable, i'm not going to lie, and the story is fascinating. it was that thing of turning to the camera and being veryjokey about something precisely at the moment when they are talking about domestic abuse and he hasjust punched her. she marries the first man who comes along and he beats her up for years. unfortunately that is not a subject for comedy. her mother says to her at one point, you think you deserve to be beaten, and she said, i would never be with a man who beat me, and she says, you beat up our dad, and she says that's different. there is a scene when tonya harding has a shotgun and she says, "this never happened." the triumph is it deals with the serious issues while also being entertaining
6:49 pm
and funny and sharp. essentially it gives you a kaleidoscopic portrait and says, you decide. everyone watching it would come out with the same opinion that she is a survivor. whatever else you think, she is a survivor. absolutely, and allisonjanney is a genius, that is the other thing you come out saying. she eats that role for breakfast. she is just fantastic. the shape of water. wonderful. dark river. i'm jumping ahead, sorry. easily confused. it deals with abuse and in different way. ruth wilson plays a character who returns to the tenant farm on which she grew up. she's been away 15 years and her abusive father has died and she comes back to the farm which she feels she has a right to take on the tenancy. her brother, however, is there disagrees. is there, and disagrees. here's a clip.
6:50 pm
i'm here now. what good is that? really, i mean, it's too late now, isn't it? he's gone. i've been driving all night... where's she gone?
