Jennifer Hudson, Respect, Herself, Copshop and The Voyeurs

Mark and Simon’s guest is Jennifer Hudson, who talks to us about her role as Aretha Franklin in Respect, which tells the story of the icon’s career from a child singing in her father's church's choir, to her international superstardom. Plus we have reviews of Herself, Phyllida Lloyd’s film about a young mother who escapes her abusive husband and fights back against a broken housing system; First World War drama The War Below about a group of British miners who are recruited to tunnel underneath no man's land in the hope of breaking a deadly stalemate; The Collini Case, about a young lawyer who stumbles upon a vast conspiracy while investigating a brutal murder case; Copshop, about a cunning con artist on the run from a lethal assassin; The Voyeurs, starring Sydney Sweeney; Sweet Thing, about two siblings and their struggle to find solid ground in the homes of their alcoholic father and negligent mother. And classic drama The Servant is reissued. Plus we’ll be attempting to solve those maddening movies you half-remember from years ago in WTF - What’s That Film.
