KID­DING

Esquire Middle East - - CULTURE -

If this new show about a beloved chil­dren’s tele­vi­sion pre­sen­ter called Mr Pick­les whose fam­ily life is swiftly fall­ing apart didn’t star Jim Car­rey, we would all need to take a long, hard look at our­selves.thank­fully, direc­tor Michel Gondry knew just who he needed, re­unit­ing with Car­rey 14 years af­ter Eter­nal Sun­shine of a Spot­less Mind.the tone looks set to be sim­i­larly sur­real and bit­ter­sweet, while the cut-out pa­per an­i­ma­tion in the trailer looks as if it could have come straight from Gondry’s In­sta­gram ac­count (which, in­ci­den­tally, is well worth fol­low­ing). Cather­ine Keener (Get Out) co-stars. We’re wide awake.
