FILM OF THE WEEK
Us three. Us brothers. Us kings, inseparable.
We the Animals, the critically-acclaimed coming-of-age story from director Jeremiah Zagar is out in cinemas nationwide today and you can catch it at HOME in Manchester.
Three boys tear through their rural New York hometown, in the midst of their young parents’ volatile love that makes and unmakes the family many times over. While Manny and Joel grow into versions of their loving and unpredictable father (Raúl Castillo - Looking), Ma seeks to keep her youngest, Jonah, in the cocoon of home. More sensitive and conscious than his older siblings, Jonah increasingly embraces an imagined world all his own.
With a screenplay by Dan Kitrosser and Jeremiah Zagar based on the celebrated Justin Torres novel, We the Animals is a visceral coming-of-age story propelled by layered performances from its astounding cast – including three talented, young first-time actors – and stunning animated sequences which bring Jonah’s torn inner world to life. Drawing from his documentary background, director Jeremiah Zagar creates an immersive portrait of working-class family life and brotherhood.

TV OF THE WEEK
Russell T Davies dystopian family drama Years and Years has been a terrifying triumph with every news bulletin on real telly looking like an trailer for the show! It's that real, that possible and that scary that something like what Davies has created in the show is probably just around the corner. Viv Rook as played by Emma Thompson is part Donald Trump, part Esther McVay and all monster creating one of the best TV villains in recent memory. It reached it's finale this week on Tuesday where we will find out what is in store in the final year we spend with the Lyons family as they fight for the life of gay political prisoner Viktor.
Black Mirror series 5 dropped on Netflix last week and is well worth a watch as it is the show's queerest and campest yet featuring a no homo episode, Miley Cyrus in one and Andrew Scott in the other!
And of course Killing Eve is back for series 2, this bisexual spy dramady is just the best and is apparently just as good in it's sophomore season (the first without Fleabag writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge)
Pose and Gentleman Jack continue on FX and BBC1 respectively. What a time to be alive! So much great queer telly!
Years and Years is on BBC1 at 9pm on Tuesday (or catch up on iPlayer).
Killing Eve is BBC1 at 9pm on Saturdays.
Black Mirror is on Netlflix.
