The eight-part crime saga, which airs on Sunday nights on RTÉ One and the RTÉ Player from September 12th, stars Charlie Cox, Aidan Gillen, Clare Dunne, Ciarán Hinds and Maria Doyle Kennedy, and sees Dublin crime family the Kinsellas go to war after a member of their clan is killed.

FILM: HERSELF

In Mamma Mia director Phyllida Lloyd's acclaimed film, a young mother Sandra (Clare Dunne, who also co-wrote the script) escapes her abusive husband and fights back against a broken housing system. She sets out to build her own home and in the process rebuilds her life and rediscovers herself. Produced by Sharon Horgan, it's a memorable calling card for its writer and star, who also pops up this weekend in Kin (see above).
