7:46 pm
to take us through this week's cinema releases is mark kermode. so mark, what do we have this week? it is a packed week with peterloo, the epic drama from mike leigh. widows, which is an update of the miniseries from the ‘80s and mirai, a charming animation. peterloo, a massacre back in 1819. interestingly, mike leigh said one reason he wanted to make the film is not enough people knew about it. he said he wasn't taught about it at school. it was a peaceful demonstration, people demanding suffrage and better conditions, which was attacked by cavalry and there were deaths and terrible injuries. and we get in this film is the leadup of the events, all the players of people who will
7:47 pm
be at the march and the protest. and the forces ranging against him. it starts on the battlefield. we see a traumatised soldier return to his home land and finding famine and he said we want a speaker to address the meeting. but his mother is sceptical that doing this is going to have any practical effect. here is a clip. there's going to be a big march. aye, mother, at petersfield. 0utside, not indoors. no. in broad daylight. yes. on a monday. on a monday? i know, it's daft. second monday in august. not go to work? aye, they'll have to make do without us. we'll get the sack.
7:48 pm
not if all the mills turn out. playing with fire. no, mother this one will be different. different how? well, there's hundreds going, women and children an' all. we're to turn out in our sunday best. oh, well i'd best get me darning needles out then. aye, you should, same of rest of the street will be. i know they will. but so will that naidan and his bullies, the swine. they'll have to get past them. aye, but people have been practicing marching peacefully. aren't they, father? aye, up on kersal moor they say. do they? aye, whole families. it's a day out for everybody. we've to stand up for ourselves, esther. we can't go on being afraid. i know, love, but we've all got to be careful though. he has this large cast. lots of speaking parts. in the first hour there are a lot of conversations and characters. everyone gets to have their see. some people might feel it is moving slowly to something we know is coming. but because you get to know the characters and the issues and everything aired so clearly,
7:49 pm
by the time you get to the third act when the massacre happens, it is terrifying. it has the impact of a paul greengrass movie and it has real epic sweep. some people have said mike leigh is famous for dramas which centre on single characters. you forget mr turner or topsy turvy of the gilbert and sullivan operas., this turning of the gilbert and sullivan operas. i thought it was powerful. certainly the screening i was at, people came out at the end and were stunned by it. i think it is interesting that mike leigh said he wanted to tell this story, because it is an important story people should know about and what it manages to do is make the past seem very contemporary and he puts
7:50 pm
you right there in the middle of the situation. although it is true it is a movie that takes its time and is quite wordy, when you get to the final act, you understand why. i'm definitely going to see it. one of my friends is it in. he is a cavalry officer. widows, i remember the tv series. it was riveting. is this as good? everyone was surprised when steve mcqueen said he would update this story. he updates it to present—day chicago with a group of women whose husbands are involved in crime and they have died and the women have the plans for a heist that didn't happen. now they will see if they can put this heist together. i love so much about this. firstly, it has a cast who are brilliant. viola davis is stand out. but the entire cast is brilliant. some some award ceremonies they have an award for ensemble companies. this should walk off for that. the way they capture the location of chicago with extreme poverty and extreme wealth cheek byjowl.
7:51 pm
and it is co—written by gillian flynn who wrote gone girl. the screenwriting is sharp. it is not overly explanatory. but it is really riveting. i like a good heist movie. i did a tv programme about heist movies. but this turns it on its head. like that film set it off, it gives you a group of characters who you would not expect to be front and centre in a heist movie and you get to know their lives and situation and these are real women with real lives and real problems. i think it is terrific and you will love it.
7:52 pm
i know you are friends with someone didn't love it. with someone who didn't love it. stop being friends with them. mirai, a japanese anime fantasy. yes, by mamoru hosoda, the story starts with a young boy who discovers he is going to get a baby sister and he is thrilled. but as the drama goes on he discovers jealousies and a fantasy world in his garden, which is a portal to different views of time on his life. at the start all he wants to do his show his sibling the world. here is a clip. i'm your big brother, so i'm going to teach you a lot of different stuff, 0k? first i'll take you outside and i'm going to teach you the names of all the bugs. dragonfly! and then i'll show you how you can see things in the clouds. there's a scorpion! see? and that one... she's too little to take her outside just yet. you can take her when she's a bit bigger, all right? fine!
7:53 pm
the witch and mr moustache. the witch was woken up by mr moustache so she got mad and chased him. and mr moustache ran. he got away byjumping on a train on the line. then the witch tried to follow him byjumping on a different line on the km line but the two trains went in different directions at the station and they got stuck for ages. knock it off! that is the english language dub. like so many anime now this has been simultaneously released in english and the original version. as a critic, i tend to prefer the original language version, but there are many good versions for seeing the dubbed version. some people can not or do not want to read subtitles and it opens up to a younger audience as well. i thought it was moving and enchanting. the style of the animation
7:54 pm
at the start is light and yet many of the themes it is dealing with are quite dark. there is a beautiful portrayal of the mother and father and this slight tetchiness between them. the father is trying to to be a good father, but he is not doing as much as he should and the mother is annoyed with him, that all her friends think he is fabulous. because he isjoining in with the childcare but he is not doing i also think if you have kids you will recognise the rivalries between the siblings and it is the fine line between imagination and fantasia and it is grounded in things you recognise as being real. so i really liked it. jolly good. best out? the bfi have a season called comedy genius and reissuing 9 to 5 and some like it hot, that is considered by some to be not just the best comedy ever made, but the best movie ever made. it is terrific. have you seen it recently? not recently.
7:55 pm
in the dim and dispant past. it is so funny and incredible how well it holds up. it is so sharp and very racy and very on the edge of what you think that kind of movie can get away with. i think it is terrific. worth another look. best dvd? leave no trace about a father and daughter living off—grid and being found by the authorities and how they then react to being found and brought back into society. i thought this was wonderful. it is made be the same film—maker who made winter's bone. i love when a film explains itself without somebody saying, "this is happening here." that never happens in leave no trace. i don't think it was seen by enough people in the cinema. at the moment it is my favourite film of the year.
7:56 pm
you're so positive. you love everything! i'm an upbeat kind of guy. thank you. and you will find more film news from across the bbc online at the website. and you can find all of our previous programmes on the bbc iplayer of course. that is it for this week. thanks for watching. goodbye. hello there. once we lost the winds across northern scotland, it was a fine one. plenty of sunshine. further south, more cloud around for england and wales and even some rain. this next feature moving its way northwards. we could have damp weather across the west country towards wales, and then this rain will spin towards the irish sea overnight into northern ireland
7:57 pm
and across into western scotland. some heavy bursts mixed into that as well. elsewhere, should be a largely dry night with variable clouds, some clear spells. quite chilly out and maybe some distant fog developing. this is the pressure chart. this weather front draped across the north and west of scotland and northern ireland will produce quite a lot of cloud, some mist and murk and also outbreaks of rain. should eventually clear a way northwards. for much of the country, should be dry into the afternoon with some sunny spells. the best of the sunshine across the midlands into the southeast, but we could see 16 or 17 degrees, and could see an afternoon and evening shower here as well. bonfire night evening... for most, it will be dry apart from the showers through central and northern areas. as we head on into tuesday, we look to the west. this next area of low pressure is likely to encroach on our shores
7:58 pm
for tuesday and certainly on wednesday, bringing increasingly wet and windy weather. quite a lot of cloud. some of the rain could be quite heavy. the further east you are, the better chance of staying dry and better chance of seeing sunshine. it's going to be a very mild southerly airflow. 0nto wednesday, that weather system pushes its way further eastwards, so it could be wet pretty much anywhere across the united kingdom for wednesday, but i think the greater chance will be across southern and western parts, with the odd heavy bursts mixed in. sunshine will develop on into the afternoon and it will be quite a windy day, too. temperature wise, maybe not quite as high as what we started with the week off, but still, 11—14 is pretty good for the time of year. for much of the upcoming week, it's pretty mild. it will turn increasingly unsettled as we head through the week. this is bbc news. i'm shaun ley.
7:59 pm
the headlines at 8pm. the businessman aaron banks inists all the money he gave to a pro brexit campaign in the run up to the referendum came from his uk businesses, not from russia. i'm telling you it came from a uk company with cash generated in the uk. rock services. an investigation‘s begun into how eight children fell from an inflatable slide at a fireworks display in woking last night. none suffered serious injuries. tributes are paid to the recently retired cabinet secretary, sirjeremy heywood, who has died from cancer at the age of 56. in the united states, president donald trump and former president barack 0bama are both on the road campaigning this evening in a final push ahead of tuesday's mid—term elections and 10,000 flames are lit at the tower of london, launching a week of commemorations marking 100 years since the end
