Let Them All Talk review – haughty Meryl Streep is queen of the high seas
Tensions arise between a writer and her coterie aboard an ocean liner in Steven Soderbergh’s sweet, unfocused dramaThere’s an awful lot going on in this new movie from Steven Soderbergh. The title is appropriate: it’s garrulous, elegant, bristling with classy performances from an A-list cast, and Deborah Eisenberg’s screenplay has a theatrical intimacy. It’s loosely and waywardly plotted, perhaps as a result of having gone through many drafts, though maybe not enough. It is slightly unfocused and uncertain as to where its emotional centre really lies – though there is a charm and a big dramatic finale.The story is mostly set (and economically filmed, by Soderbergh himself) on a luxury liner, , the Queen Mary 2, crossing from New York to Southampton. Meryl Streep plays Alice Hughes, a renowned novelist whose reputation and sales rely chiefly on a sensational early book about the collapse of a woman’s marriage. Her agent (Gemma Chan) takes her out for lunch and has to charm her cantankerous client into going to London to accept a prestigious award; she is also nervous about the fact that Alice still hasn’t delivered her latest manuscript but excited at the rumours that it could be a sequel to the sensational early book.

Valéry Giscard d’Estaing obituary
Former French president who brought in socially liberal reforms but whose grand style ultimately proved offputting to votersAs Valéry Giscard d’Estaing became the Grand Old Man of French politics – a position he held for at least two decades – it became harder to recall the intellectually brilliant and reforming politician who in 1974 became the Fifth Republic’s youngest president.Giscard, who has died aged 94, was 48 when he became president and only 55 when he stopped, after one seven-year term, meaning he experienced his political career go into decline at an age when most of his contemporaries were only just making a bid for high office. Thereafter Giscard fought to remain relevant, particularly in European politics, as he saw off his bitter rivals – François Mitterrand and Jacques Chirac – to become the longest lived former French president in history. It would be a mistake, however, to remember Giscard, or VGE as he was often known, solely for his longevity. Continue reading...

In 1934, communication aid altered because the original version was deemed ‘too Jewish’ by Hitler regimeGermany is to scrap its phonetic spelling table introduced by the Nazis 86 years ago and temporarily replace it with the version the regime abolished because it was “too Jewish”.The table, in which codewords are assigned to each letter of the alphabet to aid communication and avoid confusion particularly in radio transmissions and telephone calls, originated in the late 19th century. But in 1934, it was adapted by the Nazis who cleansed it of all its Jewish names, as part of the regime’s drive to reject all Jews from German life, which culminated in the Holocaust.

Boris Johnson must give up on fishing: it's the only way to get a Brexit deal | Simon Jenkins
A breakdown in EU talks would cause more chaos than Britain can stand. He should plan to compensate the industry insteadHold the fish. But has Boris Johnson the guts to do it? If one thing screams from the current, final trade talks between Britain and the European Union, it is that fishing cannot become a deal-breaker. It is an industry alive with romance, but it occupies just 0.02% of the British domestic output and employs just 12,000 people, fewer than benighted Debenhams.
