This article is part of Weekend Combo – What to do this weekend

It’s still November, we’re still cold and everyone is still talking about how they can’t believe the year has flown by. So, at least go and watch a film this weekend to lighten the mood. 


Salacious, sexy and scandalous 
Following on from the success of Promising Young Woman, Emerald Fennell is back with her hotly anticipated sophomore feature Saltburn. Starring Barry Keoghan as Oliver and Jacob Elordi as Felix, Fennell’s devilish psychological drama tells the tale of two Oxford University students’ relationship built on notions of obsession, ambition and desire. When Felix invites Oliver to spend a summer at his family estate, a winding narrative of twists and unfathomable turns unravels amid bloodshed, voyeurism and hedonism – all the good stuff. Before heading to the cinema, read our interview with director Emerald Fennell here.

Saltburn is out in cinemas now.


The girls are angry!
The Tate Britain is now awash with the rage of second-wave feminism for its latest exhibition Women in Revolt! The Swinging Sixties may have promised freedom and liberation, but when the 70s rolled around British women had to face the reality that not much had changed, hence the title. Bringing together one hundred feminist artists and collectives holding a middle finger up to the system, the exhibition highlights female figures who were left out of the traditional discourse of history.

Women in Revolt! runs at Tate Britain until 7th April, more info here

Club Night

You’re invited
Back on the East London scene after a brief hiatus, Ziber Club is opening up its doors tonight. Staged in a hedonistic boudoir which sits somewhere between a candy shop and a house party, the queer night straddles music genres with a lineup of DJ sets traversing talo, EBM, sexy disco, hi-nrg and industrial beats. Celebrating the kaleidoscope of queerness, the intimate club night promises to be the hottest ticket in town.

Guilty vs. not guilty
Winner of this year’s Palme d’Or at Cannes, Justine Triet’s crime thriller follows the trial of a woman accused of murdering her husband in their remote chalet in the French Alps. Sandra Hüller stars as a successful novelist living with her husband Samuel and their son Daniel who is blind, in the event of Samuel’s sudden passing Sandra is the sole suspect and Daniel the only witness. A riveting story which revels in the grey area between guilty and not guilty, Triet’s narrative explores the unreliable nature of memory.

Anatomy of a Fall is out in cinemas now. 


Everyone’s angry!
Setting five artists a brief to respond to notions of rage, M. Goldstein’s latest exhibition curated by Pippa Brooks is an angry one. The lineup of exhibiting artists sees Zoe Bedeaux aka T.I.P, Harry Freegard, John Maybury, Alice Mendelowitz and Owen Pratt come together to deliver a showcase meditating on the varying forms of rage. For example, Maybury honours the rage felt towards the death of his friend and muse Sinead O’Connor while Pratt uses blissful recordings from the French countryside to personify feelings of rage surrounding the threat to our ecosystem.

RAGE runs at M.Goldstein until 16th December, more info here
