This is Episode 70 of the Ready, Steady, Cut! Podcast. On this episode, we give you a guide to the movies that will be getting a wide release in November 2017.
There a lot of wide releases in November, and it could be a huge month with the anticipated Justice League and Thor: Ragnarok making their way to our screens. With each film, we offer our thoughts on the pre-release information, trailers and make predictions to how they will be critically received.
Once, when I was younger and much, much stupider, I walked for five miles in the middle of the night, totally unaware of what I was doing. When I woke up in the morning my bed was covered in blood; I’d later learn that during my excursion I’d fallen down a hill, rolled over a broken bottle of lager – Becks, so probably better off on the floor – and slashed my leg open before staggering home and falling asleep on the lounge floor. I hadn’t been sleepwalking, I’d been drinking wine. But thanks to that experience, and many others just like it, I think I have a decent idea of what sleepwalking is like.
It helps that I live in a decidedly working-class area, because my local streets are full of strange men and women, much like the ones Sarah Wells (Ahna O’Reilly) encounters during her night-time somnambulism. She’s recently widowed after her husband’s suicide, and has returned to her PhD studies in an attempt to establish some normality; she’s concerned, quite rightly, that her nightmares and erratic behaviour might cause some harm if they go untreated, so after a particularly troubling episode she checks herself into the university’s sleep clinic. There, she sleeps like a baby, under the watchful eye of Dr. Scott White (Richard Armitage).
