Olivier Assayas's film on the aftermath of May 1968 is infantile ultra-leftism
JOE GLENTON explains his need to respond to a world that is unsustainably divided
ENO's production of La Boheme is a triumph,
A Jewish mother and son go on a road trip from hell and bond along the way in this gentle comedy drama.
In it Barbra Streisand is the money-pinching mum who phones her grown-up son constantly during the day to nag him about his health and his love life.
Seth Rogen plays her weary offspring, who's a struggling inventor desperate to sell his new invention - an environmentally friendly cleaning liquid - to a big corporation.
He decides to take her on his cross-country sales trip in order for her to meet up again with her first true high school sweetheart.
Directed by Anne Fletcher this is a heart-warming tale which doesn't outlast its welcome and Streisand and Rogen make a great double act.
It works best as a drama although it could have done with a larger injection of humour and if you're expecting an all-out raucous comedy then prerpare to be disappointed.
