ON THE BASIS OF SEX + CAPERNAUM | feat. Armie Hammer

On this week’s episode of the Curzon Film Podcast we're joined by Hollywood A-lister Armie Hammer, who talks to us about his new film On the Basis of Sex. Plus we discuss the BAFTA and Oscar-nominated Capernaum.

We begin with Nadine Labaki’s Capernaum, a Lebanese film set on the streets of Beirut where a world-weary 12 year old, Zain, decides to sue his negligent parents for bringing him into his poverty stricken existence. A gritty and authentic film, it's being touted as a modern day Bicycle Thieves, telling a harrowing story of endurance that still manages to find hope in the darkest of situations. Head over to the Curzon blog to read our interview with the director, Labaki.

We then hear from the ever-charming Armie Hammer, star of one of Curzon’s favourite films of recent years, Call Me By Your Name. He joins us to talk about the impact of the MeToo and TimesUp movements, good husband goals, and his new film On the Basis of Sex, a biopic of Ruth Bader Ginsberg that charts the formative years of her ongoing battle for gender equality in the United States. Felicity Jones plays the Supreme Court Justice known to many as RBG, and Hammer plays Martin Ginsberg, supportive husband to Ruth and an all round stand up guy. 

Discussing the films this week are Kelly Powell, Sam Howlett, Jake Cunningham and Ella Kemp
