Nailed it! Holiday!

Airs on: Friday, 7 December

Watching incredibly talented people cook is always good entertainment, but the struggling amateur bakers in “Nailed It!” have really stolen our hearts. Its holiday episode features impossible instructions and (dare we say it?) delightfully sad looking desserts.

In this beautiful love letter to the woman who raised him, Alfonso Cuarón draws on his childhood to create a portrait of 1970s Mexico City. The film follows a young domestic worker for a middle-class family in the Roma neighbourhood and explores themes of domestic strife and social hierarchy. Heavy and artful, the film is not to be missed – it’s already been selected as the Mexican entry for the Best Foreign Language film at next year’s Oscars!
