New releases

In this week’s feature film release from PG members, Joe Stephenson’s documentary charts Ian McKellen's route from classical stage roles to starring in The Lord of the Rings. McKellen himself jokes that this documentary about his life, career and LGBT activism is a bit of an obituary. As it happens he’s already sorted out his funeral. “Well,” he says, with a waggle of one of those owlish eyebrows, “I had an evening to spare … the most enjoyable evening.”

In television, A very English Scandal, Humans (series 3), Ordeal by Innocence, The City and the City, Hold the Sun, and Trauma continue.
