Nick Cave biopic 20,000 Days On Earth arrives in cinemas this week and we talk to directors Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard. An author's disappearance inspired The Kidnapping Of Michel Houellebecq, the true story of LGBT activists helping out striking miners is told in Pride, and a snow plough operator investigates murders In Order Of Disappearance. Meanwhile Philip Seymour Hoffman makes his final appearance in spy thriller A Most Wanted Man - we spoke to director Anton Corbijn - and Woody Allen weaves some Magic In The Moonlight - see our red carpet report. Kids will enjoy going underground with The Boxtrolls, and there are re-releases for Jim Jarmusch's Down By Law and the one and only The Wizard Of Oz. All this, plus we're bringing you coverage direct from the San Sebastian Film Festival.
