Mank is not a new film that has anything to do with Manchester, as I thought when I misheard it as ‘Manc’, but it stars Gary Oldman as scathing social critic and alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz, with 1930s Hollywood being re-evaluated through his eyes, as he races to finish the screenplay of Citizen Kane.
It also stars Amanda Seyfried, Lily Collins, Arliss Howard, Tom Pelphrey, Sam Troughton, Ferdinand Kingsley, Tuppence Middleton, Tom Burke, Charles Dance, and is directed by David Fincher.
Mank is on Netflix and in cinemas on December 4th, and a review will be online nearer the time.
