Three new films will be up on our screens this week, including Mesrine: Killer Instinct (pronounced "merrine"), part one of the two-part gangster epic based on the life of France's notorious bank robber, kidnapper and arms smuggler. There's also eccentric drama Home, and Skin, the true story of a black girl born to white parents in South Africa. All three start on Friday 21 August. Film page
We've still got all kinds of events and activites to keep the kids busy over the school holidays -- and if you stop by on Saturday, you'll find burgers and all sorts sizzling on the National Media Museum summer barbecue outside the entrance (weather permitting). See our Summer 2009 page for all the details.
