Theatre & Arts -- 'I said to Liam Neeson, if we had slept together, you'd remember...' - renowned photographer Kim Haughton talks capturing BLM protests, access to Obama and meeting Neeson -- A photographer often needs to be up close and personal to capture that moment the thousand words can not. It's difficult to imagine such 'words' failing Kim Haughton. But the gods of the coronavirus played against her: the multi-award-winning Dubliner was in lockdown in her apartment in New York's midtown when word came through that she had landed the job of photo editor for the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Washington DC.

Television -- Dazzlingly brave: I May Destroy You has captured a troubled moment in time -- If there is a golden rule in popular entertainment today, it is that you never say no to Netflix.

Movie Reviews -- The Old Guard: Charlize Theron is the only thing going for this daft action fantasy -- She may have made her name in serious dramas like Monster and North Country, but in recent years, Charlize Theron has reinvented herself as an action specialist. The film in which she first displayed her high-kicking credentials was Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), which she stole from under the nose of its supposed star, Tom Hardy, playing with great conviction a kind of unhinged desert warrior queen.

Book Reviews -- Raw account of childhood horror and one woman's descent to rock bottom -- It's hard to square the content of Terri White's memoir with her evident success: a talented editor, gifted writer, and a woman in possession of what can only be described as a glamorous life, complete with film star interviews, invitations to book launches and a series of enviable jobs. But her professional world is an afterthought, worthy of only occasional comment in this memoir. And that's perhaps the point.

For my money, one of this summer's cultural hits was Little Fires Everywhere (Amazon Prime), Reese Witherspoon's adaptation of Celeste Ng's devastating portrait of motherhood.
