    Little Women, instant friendship

    Little Women, instant friendship

    Greta Gerwig's take on Little Women, Louis May Alcott's classic novel, starts fast and speeds up from there. We talk about how Gerwig's antic adaptation barely pauses for breath, but still makes room in its period setting for a very modern take on women, work, money and freedom.


    Starring Saoirse Ronan as aspiring writer Jo Marsh, Little Women tells the story of Jo and her sisters - Meg, Amy and Beth - as they leave adolescence and find their way in the world. It's Gerwig's second film as director after the Oscar-nominated Lady Bird, which also starred Ronan.


    Elsewhere in this episode: witch stories, clockwork games and Anna swoons and swoons again over the lovely (for now) Timothée Chalamet, who plays this Little Women's Laurie.

    Atlantics and supernatural love

    Atlantics and supernatural love

    Heartless, irrational, unstoppable - zombies and the sea are natural soul(less) mates and Mati Diop's debut film pairs them beautifully. Atlantics, which took home the first feature award at this year's London Film Festival, is a love story between a Senegalese woman and her departed lover. It hits the high water mark for stories of supernatural love.


    Anna, Hen and Pete talk about what makes a ghoulish love story glimmer, how the sea shines as a metaphor on film and why love stories in which one person is dead are the most beautiful and tragic of all.


    !WARNING: Contains spoliers for Atlantics!

    The Report and the paperwork thriller

    The Report and the paperwork thriller

    A paperwork thriller. A chit-chat drama. The Report, the true story of the US Senate intelligence officer who investigated the CIA's torture of detainees after 9/11, uses dialogue - lots and lots of dialogue - to tell a slow-burning story of an instution reaching far beyond its limits.


    In this episode of The Bigger Picture Hen, Anna and Pete describe how watching the film is more akin to listening to long-form narrative podcast than going to the cinema, why the film remains a thrill despite its slow pace and how - bizarrely - scenes of state-sanctioned torture have become a trope unto themselves.

    Monos: A mystical teen party war movie

    Monos: A mystical teen party war movie

    Alejandro Landes's Monos has teen soldiers running wild in the mountains of an unspecified south American country. Hen, Anna and Pete take a trek up into the weird world of guerrilla warfare, presided over by a cow called Shakira.


    They talk about the film's treatment of Colombia's long-running war, how Landes masterfully creates an atmosphere of tension out of teen tomfoolery and Mica Levi's awesome score. Plus, nonsense chat about what we'd call a cow if one were gifted to us.
