5 Things To Do This Weekend: Watch 'Wolf Of Wall Street', Go To The London Short Film Festival

Stuck for things to do this weekend? Check this out…

1) See The Wolf Of Wall Street

A three-hour Martin Scorsese comedy? The many minutes whiz by as stockbroker Leo DiCaprio gets rich quick in the go-go 80s, falling victim to an FBI probe and too many recreational drugs. At least half a dozen killer scenes  make this an audacious talking-point movie: we smell hit. Charles Gant

2) Go And See Pop Art To Brit Art

On display for the very first time, this private collection of modern art goes on display for the first time and features works from the Swinging Sixties through to the YBA’s and beyond.  Exquisite work from David Hockney, Peter Blake, Damien Hirst, Bridget Riley and Gavin Turk all feature.

3) See Dr Who In Richard II

Your favourite Dr Who- David Tennant- follows his spell on stage in Hamlet with this much acclaimed production of Richard II. Directed by Gregory Doran and starring RSC regular Jane Laporaire, it edgy plot which concerns political corruption makes gives it an edge of zeitgeisty relevance.
