Novelist - Eimear McBride, Film - Parasite, Playwright - Jasmine Lee-Jones and the Petworth Beauties get their legs back

The Korean film Parasite is in the running for Best Picture, Director, and International Feature at the Oscars on Sunday. Critic Mark Eccleston reviews the tragicomedy, directed by Bong Joon Ho. It follows the collision of two Korean families from very different socio-economic backgrounds, and the unstoppable string of mishaps that lie in wait. As part of our Risk season, Front Row is asking artists working in different forms about their greatest career risks. Tonight we speak to Jasmine Lee-Jones, the 20-year-old playwright of Seven Methods of Killing Kylie Jenner which was produced at the Royal Court last year. She considers the risk of discussing divisive topics such as cultural appropriation and colourism - prejudice against people of darker skin tone by those of the same ethnicity - in her play. Eimear McBride, whose experimental debut A Girl is a Half-formed Thing was a literary sensation, she tells Samira Ahmed about her new novel Strange Hotel, about a woman reflecting on her life whilst moving from one hotel room to another. Art critic Richard Cork reports on the restoration of two paintings known as the Petworth Beauties. The portraits of two ladies from Queen Anne’s court were shortened 200 years ago by folding back part of the paintings showing their lower legs to make more space on the wall at Petworth House in Sussex. The paintings are now on show, at full length, as part of British Baroque at Tate Britain. Presenter: Samira Ahmed Producer: Julian May Main image: Parasite Photo credit: Curzon…read more
