Inherent Vice, Dara, Teen Film Tropes, Cotton to Gold

Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film is Inherent Vice, an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's seventh novel, starring Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon. It describes itself as surf noir. The novelist Lawrence Norfolk joins Samira Ahmed to say whether it captures the style, humour and psychadelic content of the book. Charlie Lyne, director of Beyond Clueless, a film about the teen films that defined his youth, and Naomi Alderman, critic, author and lover of teen films, discuss the tropes of the classic teen movie and the blend of nostalgia and unease we feel re-watching the films of our own adolescence. Lead curator Dr Cynthia Johnston discusses Cotton to Gold: Extraordinary Collections of the Industrial North West, a new exhibition that showcases the treasures of several 19th Century Lancashire mill magnates. Dara is a new play about a ferocious family fight for succession and conflicting visions of Islam. Set in India in 1659, it's the story of two brothers and a sister whose mother's death inspired the Taj Mahal. The writer Shahid Nadeem and adaptor Tanya Ronder talk to Samira. Presenter: Samira Ahmed Producer: Sarah Johnson.…read more
