This week Dan Slevin reviews: Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard as spies fighting Nazis in Allied, Terence Davies' adaption of a Scottish classic in Sunset Song and Michael Keaton who changes the face of food service in The Founder.

On the show today are three examples of what you might call 'classical' movie-making. Allied is an old-fashioned star-studded WWII romance with Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard as spies fighting Nazis.

Terence Davies adapts Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s beloved Scottish novel Sunset Song.

Academy Award-winner Michael Keaton plays Ray Kroc, the man who transformed McDonald’s from a neighbourhood burger joint into a billion-dollar business, in The Founder.
