The only way to escape this life is to enter the ‘Hot Shot’ talent show and pray you can impress the judges. Charlie Brooker describes 15 Million Merits as ‘A sarcastic version of the future. It’s a world in which every surface is an interactive distraction and people are condemned to a life of drudgery where the only escape is fame.’ Stars Daniel Kaluuya, Rupert Everett, Jessica Brown Findlay, Julia Davis and Ashley Thomas. Directed by Euros Lyn (Sherlock, Dr Who, Torchwood).
