Ryan Reynolds, Free Guy, The Courier, Wendy and I’m Your Man

Ali and Robbie’s guest this week is Ryan Reynolds, who talks about his role as a bank cashier who discovers that he's actually inside a brutal, open world video game in Free Guy. Robbie and Ali also review Benedict Cumberbatch in The Courier, about Cold War spy Greville Wynne trying to put an end to the Cuban Missile Crisis; Coda, about Ruby, who is the only hearing person in her deaf family; Beasts of the Southern Wild director Benh Zeitlin’s film Wendy, a reimagining of Peter Pan; Minamata, which stars Johnny Depp as war photographer W. Eugene Smith who travels back to Japan where he documents the devastating effect of mercury poisoning in coastal communities; WeWork: Or the Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn, Jed Rothstein’s documentary about the collapse of the office space company; and Dan Stevens in I’m Your Man, about a scientist who in order to obtain research funds for her studies, accepts an offer to participate in an extraordinary experiment. What’s That Film continues, in which your mysterious half-remembered films are (hopefully) identified. Ali and Robbie also talk you through the best and worst films on subscription-free TV next week, and recommend a home entertainment purchase in DVD of the Week.
