Reese Witherspoon’s recent career has been one we’ve watched with interest. Her roles in the mini series Big Little Lies and her Oscar-nominated Wild showcased a resurgence from the actress. Her new film, Home Again, pits her against a new challenge – a new divorce and a rediscovery of the self. She stars alongside Michael Sheen, Nat Wolff and Lake Bell.

Hayley Donaghy sat down with Witherspoon, the writer/director HAllie Meyers Shyer and the legendary Nancy Meyers, who produced the film (and I suppose the director).

Home Again is released in UK cinemas on the 29th of September.
