Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead (National Theatre Live)

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, The Woman in Black), Joshua McGuire (The Hour) and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Witness for the Prosecution) star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny situation comedy, broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre in London. David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight. Against the backdrop of Hamlet, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take centre stage. As the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare’s iconic drama, they become increasingly out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds.

Boston

Narrated by Matt Damon BOSTON is the first ever feature-length documentary film about the world’s most legendary run-ning race – the Boston Marathon. The film chronicles the story of the iconic race from its humble origins with only 15 runners to the present day. In addition to highlighting the event as the oldest annually contested marathon in the world, the film showcases many of the most important moments in more than a century of the race’s history. The Boston Marathon evolved from a working man’s challenge into a world-class event, welcoming foreign athletes and eventually women. The Boston Marathon became the stage for many firsts and in no small part, the event that paved the way for the modern marathon and mass participatory sports. Following the tragic events of 2013, BOSTON showcases the preparations for and eventual running of the 118th Boston Marathon one year later, when runners and community gather together once again for what will be the most meaningful race of all. The production was granted exclusive documentary rights from the Boston Athletic Association to produce the film and to use the Association’s extensive archive of video, photos and memorabilia.
