FILMS OUT THIS WEEK
A closeted gay man spends time with his strict religious family this week in 1985 - we spoke with director Yen Tan - while the story of a woman driven to murder is told in Lizzie. Lars von Trier explores the life of a serial killer in The House That Jack Built and documentary Free Solo sees a young man take on a 3,000ft climb without any safety gear. Golden Globe award nominee Robert Redford star as an elderly prison escapee in The Old Man & The Gun, an ordinary man attracts media attention when he needs a face transplant in Mug and, just in time for Christmas, there are rereleases for Die Hard, Home Alone and It's A Wonderful Life. All this, plus we have coverage of the French Film Festival UK.
