Meddling, knowing infinity … and beyond
We can learn a lot at cinemas this week. From grief and family dynamics in The Meddler, to maths and the existence of God in The Man Who Knew Infinity, our big screens are filled with thought-provoking lessons.
The Big Picture team of film reviewer Ben McEachen and scriptwriter Mark Hadley have surveyed what’s around and, below, they let you know what’s worth checking out. Along with Susan Sarandon in The Meddler and genius biopic The Man Who Knew Infinity, Ben visited Bastille Day — and asks whether it’s okay to create frivolous entertainment out of terrorism?
Every Sunday night from 8pm on Hope 103.2FM in Sydney, The Big Picture airs as a one-hour show about movies, TV and popular culture.
