This month’s Apollo podcast focuses on Mr. Turner, Mike Leigh’s eagerly awaited biopic of the artist. The director joins Thomas Marks to talk about his love of Turner’s work, where the new film fits into his oeuvre, and taking art to the movies. Actresses Dorothy Atkinson and Marion Bailey discuss their roles as Hannah Danby and Sophia Booth, and working opposite Timothy Spall’s J.M.W. Turner.
