NEW TO BIBLIO+ FROM BBC
Van Gogh: Painted with Words
Benedict Cumberbatch portrays Vincent Van Gogh to perfection in this powerful and critically acclaimed docudrama. Based on years of painstaking research, with every single word of dialogue sourced from his original writings, this is the artist’s story, in his own words. For 18 years from 1872, Van Gogh chronicled his eventful life through some 900 letters to his younger brother Theo. Now, this film weaves together the painter’s recorded experiences into a compelling story. What emerges is a complex portrait of a sophisticated, civilised and yet tormented man.
Twenty-four-year-old Marnie is witty, smart and ‘normal’. Well, ‘normal’ apart from the relentless noise inside her head. For the past 3,723 days, Marnie has been experiencing an incessant barrage of graphic x-rated thoughts. Unbeknown to Marnie, she’s caught in the grip of a remarkable form of obsessive compulsive disorder – nicknamed ‘Pure O’. After vividly imagining her parents engrossed in an orgy at their 25th wedding anniversary party, Marnie packs a bag and jumps on the first coach out of Scotland. Moving to London, Marnie is desperate to find out what’s wrong with her.
This gripping adaptation by Andrew Davies brings to life Dickens’ powerful story of struggle and hardship in 1820s London. When Arthur Clennam returns to England after many years abroad, his curiosity is piqued by the presence in his mother’s house of a young seamstress, Amy Dorrit. The cold and forbidding Mrs Clennam isn’t usually given to charity, so why has she made an exception in taking on Amy? Arthur’s quest to discover the truth takes him to the Marshalsea Prison for Debt. Here he meets and befriends Amy’s father, William Dorrit, who is the prison’s longest serving inmate.
