The Radio Verulam Film Guide: Friday 1st July 2016

West Herts Drivetime - Fri, 01/07/2016 - 7:00pm
So it's been a little over a week since Britain decided to leave the EU, and Simon is doing his best to be proactive about it. In fact he has set up a new country, and already applied for membership to the EU. There are a few practical problems with the country so far, such as it covering only the length of the street he lives on (which has annoyed some of his neighbours), the fact that it's only exports are love and Simon's homemade sloe gin, and that's he's already tried to invade the neighbouring street. We wish him well in his endeavour.

Ok, that was a lie, but Simon was in the studio to talk about the UK box office, new releases in the cinema, and his pick of films on TV for the coming week.
