From Get Up, Stand Up! The Bob Marley Musical to Succession, we review the best of this week's culture

Book tickets to… Get Up, Stand Up! The Bob Marley Musical

In a blaze of bright colour, supernova energy, sweet melodies and throbbing beats, this hotly anticipated Bob Marley musical biodrama finally arrives. Directed by Clint Dyer, with a thrillingly charismatic lead performance from Arinzé Kene, it’s an exhilarating tribute to the man, his message and his music, writes Sam Marlowe in her four-star review.

Read… Oh William! by Elizabeth Strout

The much-anticipated Oh William! marks the triumphant return of Strout’s wry, self-effacing heroine Lucy Barton. She also featured in 2017’s Anything is Possible, a series of connected tales about people from the character’s past, but Strout returns to Lucy’s urgent first-person narration here, with stunning results. Read Gwendolyn Smith’s review here.

Watch… The French Dispatch

Asking a journalist to write about The French Dispatch – Wes Anderson’s loving pastiche of and homage to the glory days of that bastion of journalistic quality, The New Yorker – is destined to get a biased response, given the movie’s open-hearted romanticism about the profession. Of course a writer wants to see a film about old-school, longform reportage of the 60s. Of course a writer might fall for its narrative curlicues and indulgences. And of course, this one did. Read Christina Newland’s review here.

Listen to… Self Esteem’s Prioritise Pleasure

Since the release of the first single from her second album, “I Do This All the Time”, in April 2021, life has hit warp speed for the singer. The song is a powerful spoken-word note to self with a gospel-adjacent chorus that sounds like sun bursting through cloud, writes Kate Solomon in her interview with Self Esteem.

Binge… Maid

In Netflix’s brilliant drama Maid, Margaret Qualley (Once Upon a Time… in HollywoodMy Salinger Year) plays Alex, a young mother to three-year-old Maddy (Rylea Nevaeh Whittet) who flees her abusive boyfriend, Sean (Nick Robinson, Love, Simon), with no money and nowhere to go. Over 10 episodes we see her struggle to survive, anchored only by her low-paid job as a house maid and her fierce love for her daughter. Read Emily Baker’s piece on the show here.

Catch up on… Succession

If you haven’t yet watched the new series of Succession, you’ve got a treat in store. The first, scene-setting episode reassures fans that nothing has diminished during the show’s absence. Indeed, it’s back stronger – and deliciously nastier – than ever, writes Gerard Gilbert in his review.

Watch… Dune

Dense with lore and backstory that may be a touch intimidating to the uninitiated, Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s doorstop sci-fi classic Dune is a windswept epic in the true sense, tawny-tinted and forebodingly handsome in its design. Read Christina Newland’s review here.
