So, in the interests of health and safety, let me help. Winner's new film is called Dirty Weekend, it is released on 1 October and it stars Lia Williams, currently in Oleanna at the Royal Court. It is an adaptation of the novel by Helen Zahavi, who says of her heroine, Bella, 'she goes out in the night and hopes the freaks will find her. She's had enough. If they want to batter, rape or humiliate her she wipes them out. I think this is a reasonable response to unreasonable demands.'
Sounds familiar? 'I think Dirty Weekend is a 1990s Death Wish,' says the Winner publicity, 'and much more.' Later on, Lia Williams says of Winner: 'He's a pussycat really, he was very helpful and considerate.' There you are, Michael: now just you relax and take it easy.Reuse content
