Directed by Maria Schrader (She Said, Netflix's Unorthodox) and released in Irish cinemas in 2021, I'm Your Man holds a very impressive 96% Rotten Tomatoes score - with critics praising Stevens' performance delivered in fluent German and the movie's exploration of romance in a modern world of ever advancing technology.

Booksmart - BBC One - 11.40pm

One of the best and most warmest comedies of recent years, Booksmart follows two graduating high school girls (Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever) who set out to finally break the rules and party on their last day of classes.
