    Sarah Silverman: A Speck of Dust

    ★★★★

    It was quite fitting that on the day that America's Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade, that I'd be listening to Sarah Silverman remind us that this landmark decision to withdraw the protection of a pregnant woman's right to choose whether she has an abortion or not, has been as much of a battleground in US Politics as both gun control and immigration.

    ★★½

Starring alongside the likes of James Whitmore and Barry Sullivan as three escaped Confederate prisoners near the end of the Civil War, McCrea and his buddies manage to evade a Union posse on their trail and are found by a Confederate militia leader with ties to Quantrill. He sets them a task to travel South to Mexico, where a wagon train of gold is being smuggled into the…
