Carey Mulligan, Spoiler Alert!, Mosaic and the Death of the Lead Guitar

Playwright Dennis Kelly's emotional new play Girls and Boys centres on the story of a woman in an aggressive man's world.

Boyd Hilton reviews Mosaic, a new TV drama series from Steven Soderbergh, which stars Sharon Stone as a murdered novelist. The HBO series is accompanied in the US by a mobile phone app whereby the viewer can choose from which perspective the plot is viewed. Matt Bellamy, the axeman who fronts Muse and is famous for his searing solos, has said the guitar as a lead instrument is dead. It has retreated into the texture of the music.
