Planned Episodes

Sunday 27th October*. Episode 64: First Man. Ryan Gosling stars as Neil Armstrong in this detailed look at the man and his life leading up to the first moon landing.

Sunday 10th November*. Episode 65: Monster. A transformed Charlize Theron stars as American down-and-out Aileen Wuoron who turned her anger at the cards life had dealt into a literally murderous rage. Ms Theron’s performance earned her the Best Actress Oscar and it’s a compelling movie. We will examine how close to the known facts the storyline manages to stay.

Sunday 24th November*. Episode 66: The Untouchables.  In a change to the previously published subject for this episode we have taken a decision to stick with Kevin Costner (one of the leads of The Highwaymen although he didn’t appear in Black Hawk Down) but to go back to his earlier days and a higher profile role, playing Elliot Ness who led the drive to take down Al Capone in Prohibition-era Chicago. Also starring Sean Connery and Robert de Niro as Al Capone, we will see how close the movie stays to the real story of the Untouchables. 

*Publication dates may vary depending on the number of shows used for the preceding movie episode.
