She’s tough, she’s toothy and she takes no nonsense. We’re kicking off this weekend with Emma Thompson, who returns to the role which delighted kids of all sizes the world over. Nanny McPhee Returns is – of course – the stand-alone sequel to that wonderful first film and Thompson gives just as enchanting a performance a second time around as she lands on the doorstep of an out-of-control household, claiming that only she can bring the much-needed sense calm it so desperately needs.
Being John Malkovich understood its title character so well, it's been hard to be John Malkovich ever since. Not that this is a documentary, far from it. Whilst Malkovich might be playing a version of himself, the idea that a lowly New York puppeteer called Craig (John Cusack) can enter the actor's mind via a portal behind an office filing cabinet is, I'm sure you'll agree, not exactly fact.
