In case the snow has you thinking of hibernation, grab a massive bag of malteasers to bury in the garden and settle down for some serious in-door time with a new favourite show:
Looking, written, directed and produced by Britain’s Andrew Haigh (Weekend, 2011) revolves around the lives of a group of gay men in San Fransisco at different stages of their lives as they negotiate themselves, their friendships, relationships and careers. Cool and honest, in that kind of self-absorbed way that draws inevitable comparisons with HBO’s Girls. Well worth watching.
Set against a backdrop of revolution and tyranny, Tyrant follows an American paediatrician who, having left his father and his homeland in the middle-east some 20years before, now finds himself back where he started and entangled in everything he was trying to escape all those years ago. From the writer/director/producer of Homeland, Gideon Raff.
