Ahead of the film's premiere at the Venice Film Festival, Netflix has released the first trailer for the long-anticipated Hollywood epic The Other Side of the Wind.

Former Doctor Who star Matt Smith is a picture of pure evil, strumming a guitar as 60s cult leader Charles Manson. Smith, 36, unrecognisable behind a false beard, stars as Manson alongside Suki Waterhouse, Chace Crawford, Sosie Bacon and Game of Thrones’ Hannah Murray in new film Charlie Says.

Stirling Central Scotland Most visitors go to Scotland for the scenery, the culture, eventful history and the cold-Caribbean-like coast. As a base for exploring the Highlands, with shops and society yet no city throngs, Stirling is a bonny option. The dramatic castle towering above the town nudges into every view, ensuring no visitor forgets to visit, but book ahead for special Christmas lunches in the intimate Green Room, and carols on 15 Dec, and the play A Christmas Carol (20-22 Dec).
