From At The Movies, 7:30 pm on 7 September 2016

Simon Morris looks at two films that are firmly marked “for the fans” - Richie McCaw: Chasing Great, and the return of The Office’s David Brent - Life on the Road. He also reviews Free State of Jones, based on a little-known true story of the American Civil War.

Richie McCaw: Chasing Great tells the rugby star’s story in his own words. Directed by Justin Justin Pemberton and Michelle Walshe.

David Brent: Life on the Road puts The Office’s manager into an aspiring rock band, Foregone Conclusion. Starring Ricky Gervais.

Free State of Jones is the true story of a man who set up a multi-racial republic in the heart of the Confederacy during the American Civil War. Starring Matthew McConaughey.
