World War Two 1942 and Hitler's Soft Underbelly

The British fought the Second World War to defeat Hitler. World War Two 1942 and Hitler's Soft Underbelly asks why, then, did they spend so much of the conflict battling through North Africa and Italy?

Reynolds reassesses Winston Churchill's conviction that the Mediterranean was the 'soft underbelly' of Hitler's Europe. Travelling to Egypt and Italian battlefields like Cassino, scene of some of the worst carnage in western Europe, he shows how, in reality, the 'soft underbelly' became a dark and dangerous obsession for Churchill.

Reynolds reveals a prime minister very different from the jaw-jutting bulldog of Britain's 'finest hour' in 1940 - a leader who was politically vulnerable at home, desperate to shore up a crumbling British empire abroad, losing faith in his army and even ready to deceive his American allies if it might delay fighting head to head against the Germans in northern France. It arrives on DVD 5 September 2016.

Grace of My Heart

Inspired by the life of internationally renowned singer songwriter Carole King, acclaimed feature film Grace of My Heart, arrives on DVD on 15 August 2016, following hot on the heels of Carole's hugely successful concert in Hyde Park, her first performance in London in 30 years. With the successful smash hit Broadway show Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, still selling out in London's West End, Carole's star continues to shine brightly.

Featuring a stellar cast, a stunning soundtrack and Martin Scorsese as executive producer, Grace of My Heart hits all the right notes as it charts the inspirational story of a female singer-songwriter's struggle to make her mark in the dynamic American music scene of the 60s and 70s.

Set at the time when prodigiously talented singer-songwriters were fighting for recognition in a tough, male-dominated music industry, Grace of My Heart traces the 'long and winding road' to stardom of Denise Waverly (Illeana Douglas - Six Feet Under), whose songs bring fame to other people - until she finds her own voice. This influential story also stars Eric Stoltz (Mask), Patsy Kensit (Absolute Beginners), Bridget Fonda (Single White Female), Matt Dillon (Crash) and John Turturro (Barton Fink).

Author: The JT Leroy Story

In the mid 1990s a new wunderkind appeared on the literary scene, and took the world by storm. JT LeRoy (Jeremiah 'Terminator' LeRoy) was a young writer, from a very troubled background, with tales of abuse, prostitution and a life on the streets. This fascinating new voice started making waves with articles appearing in magazines such as Nerve and Shout NY and when his first novel Sarah was published in 1999, and he began to make public appearances, his fame ascended at a rapid pace. The showbiz world took LeRoy into their fold, and everyone wanted to be seen with the "it" person of the moment...

But all was not what it seemed.

In 2005 New York magazine's October issue sent shockwaves through the literary world when it unmasked JT LeRoy, whose tough prose about his sordid childhood had captivated icons and luminaries internationally. It turned out LeRoy didn't actually exist.

Now a brand new film from Jeff Feuerzeig (The Devil and Daniel Johnston) Author: The JT LeRoy Story, which arrives in UK cinemas on 29 July 2016 from Dogwoof following its UK Premiere at Sundance London on 4 June 2016, takes us down the infinitely fascinating rabbit hole of how one woman -like a Cyrano de Bergerac on steroids-breathed not only words, but life, into her avatar for a decade. This epic and entertaining account plunges us into a glittery world of rock shows, fashion events, and the Cannes red carpet where LeRoy becomes a mysterious sensation. Finally the person behind the enigma recounts an astonishing odyssey.
