SHOPPING

TREASURE TROVE Independent of the week Part jewellery store and part gift shop, Artemis in Bishopston is packed with treasures. Kate Edser takes a tour.

T

he first thing to notice about Artemis is the astounding number of very pretty things on display. The second most striking point of interest, though some would no doubt argue the toss, is the equally beautiful Flynn. With rich auburn hair, a sleek, fit body and the most appealing brown eyes, he’s a show-stopper of a Cocker spaniel, who belongs to the shop’s joint proprietor, Carrie Mullan. Flynn, of course, only has eyes for his mistress, but his enthusiastic social skills add hugely to the shop’s appeal. Indeed, Carrie admits: “It is a very happy shop and Flynn helps to keep it that way. “People say he’s bribery and corruption because he gets people through the door and then they spend money. Flynn is the star of Artemis and definitely steals the show.” And so I begin to understand this shop’s many endearing qualities. Selling jewellery and gifts, there’s something to linger over at every turn, including all manner of unusual silver pieces,

4

ornaments, pottery, toiletries, bags, scarves and slippers, candles, paintings, cushions and umbrellas/parasols Silver jewellery is core to the business and to the mother-anddaughter silver-smithing and design team who run the show: Catherine Amesbury and her 23-year-old daughter Carrie. Explaining how the shop was born, Carrie says: “I started silver smithing when I was 10 as an extra curricular activity. “Mum was a health and beauty therapist but had always wanted to do something in fashion, so for her 50th birthday she launched her own range of jewellery, having started silver smithing lessons after me. “It was very much a kitchen table hobby, selling the jewellery in her clinic and at school fairs, and then we started doing at home events, which really took off. During an open house weekend we’d get between 1,000 and 1,500 people through the house during the three days, so we decided there was a market for what we were selling. “I came on board after I left college and we went into the old Woolworth’s building on Whiteladies Road four years ago.

Nyvt Nypkh€4 Rhu|hy€ ;4 :89<

“We were there for just shy of two years when they gave us a month’s notice. We were out for a month or so while we got this place set up. We’ve been here two years and we have expanded downstairs.” The upper floor includes the workshop – with Flynn ensconced under one of the desks – where Carrie and her staff design and alter and advise. It’s the creative process that Carrie enjoys: “A customer can come in and adapt one of the pieces that I have made and they will give me a completely different take on it. It is constantly inspiring and the fact that we work with customers so much means it is a constantly evolving process. “The shop has always been part jewellery and part gifts. “The jewellery we design and

make mostly ourselves on site and what’s usual about it is that we have an instant commission service. None of our pieces on display would take longer than two hours to make, so if someone is desperate for something, we can have it ready at the end of the day.” That is particularly useful for gentlemen customers, as Carrie knows only too well: “If you’re looking for a gift for a man you might be stuck. Our homage to men is cufflinks and key rings and that’s about it, but men love shopping here. “Quite often they’ll say ‘I need help, I’m looking for a present and I have got to get it today’. It’s very common on the Saturday before Mother’s Day, on Christmas Eve and the day before Valentine’s Day.” Jewellery on display in the

top buys

shop is priced up to maximum of £240, although bespoke commissions can be significantly more. The silver is bought mainly from Thailand, New York and Mexico, while Fair Trade pottery comes from Sri Lanka, and lots of the gifts are from a Wiltshire company. What any visitor cannot fail to notice is that many items have a bird or heart theme – which is explained by Carrie’s love of the former and Catherine’s penchant for the latter. One of Carrie’s designs, the Bella necklace, for example, combines coloured pearls with a silver bird and bar fastening. This best-selling item retails for £115, but at the other end of the scale are much cheaper trinkets for just a few pounds. Carrie says: “We try and keep everything as reasonable as we

can. We wanted to bring in beautiful things that were also affordable so kids can come in with pocket money. “We sell a lot of the feather bird clips to children for £4. There are lots of little decorations for a few pounds, too, like the enamel hearts for £3 – it is the kind of thing you can put in a card and send in the post.” Finally, as a member of the North Bristol Arts Trail, Artemis also acts as a gallery for local artists, including Sarah Cowper and Cath Read.

HEALTH&BEAUTY

MILLION DOLLAR SMILE Beauty A confident smile can work wonders, so its hardy surprisingly that we are turning to cosmetic procedures. Here, Bristol dentist Dr Nicola White explains the process of teeth whitening.

W

hitening is very popular and 80 per cent of my patients request it within an age range from 18 up to 65, women and men. Our teeth naturally darken over time as we get older and whitening is a safe way of being able to make your teeth naturally look cleaner, fresher and brighter. Our smile is very important, after all – teeth are one of the first things people notice about us. What, scientifically, happens to the teeth during whitening? Scientifically, whitening gels contain either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. The mechanism of bleaching is brought about by a process called oxidation and it is this process which alters the organic yellow pigment in the dentine of the tooth to whiten it. Does it damage the teeth in any way? No, it is completely safe. The gels are a neutral pH, which means that, unlike the acidity of

10

fruit juice that damages enamel, the gels pass through the enamel and safely work on colour of the dentine. Is the process painful at all? Some sensitivity is to be expected during the whitening process and this usually occurs around the necks of the teeth where the gums have receded. Because of the oxidisation process, oxygen levels within the tooth are at their maximum after day three. Sensitivity then improves and resolves once you have ceased using the whitening gels after a day or two. There are various products that your dentist can advise you to use to help reduce sensitivity. How is the product applied? If you are whitening your teeth at home, custom-made trays are made, which sit tightly and comfortably around your upper and lower teeth. Gel is then placed in the trays and you wear them for a period of time in the day, or overnight. If you are having your teeth whitened with “power” whitening, often involving a light that activates the gel while you are sitting in the dentist’s chair,

Nyvt Nypkh€4 Rhu|hy€ ;4 :89<

then your gums are protected and gel is painted on each tooth. Are there any potential side effects or risks to be aware of? Your dentist will need to ensure that you have no underlying dental decay, which could create pain within the tooth when the gel is applied, or cause a pre-existing condition to flare-up. You may not be suitable for the treatment if your teeth are already extremely sensitive as a result of enamel damage. People who have extensive and already-visible white spots on their teeth may not be able to whiten their teeth as the spot could become even more noticeable. Because there is insufficient evidence to suggest teeth whitening is safe while pregnant, we advise that you wait until after your baby is born. How long is the whitening process? The length of time it takes to

whiten your teeth is very dependent on how dark they are to begin with, together with patient compliance, such as not wearing the trays for the time specified by your dentist. It also depends on how porous the teeth are, ie, how well the gel is absorbed. Teeth which are more grey in colour tend to take longer to whiten. We usually expect to see results after two weeks, but this can increase to up to eight weeks, depending on the initial shade. Long term, it is recommended you use the whitening trays at home intermittently to maintain the lighter shade of your teeth. In the surgery, if you are having power whitening, the procedure can consist of two applications of gel in the one visit, each lasting 20 minutes. If you are whitening your teeth at home, this can be done for one to three hours, once or twice daily, or overnight.


Are there people whose teeth are unsuitable for whitening? If yes, is there an alternative? The main issue is if you already have very sensitive teeth due to poor enamel. You will need to be assessed. Also it’s worth considering your expectations; over and above a certain shade, “whiter” can only be achieved with restorations, such as porcelain veneers. The neck of a tooth around the gum margin needs to be protected from the gel to prevent irritation and soreness, so this will not lighten to the same extent as the main body of the tooth. This is something to consider if you have very noticeable gums when you smile. What is the cost of whitening? Home whitening costs in the region of £320 for both upper and lower teeth. Power whitening is approximately £600, including trays to use at home afterwards. What are the rules on who can

carry out teeth whitening? It is illegal for anyone other than a dentist or dental hygienist to whiten your teeth. A legal limit on percentage strength of whitening gels has been set at six per cent hydrogen peroxide, or 16 per cent carbamide peroxide. At present, dentists must not use anything stronger. Is the effect permanent, or do patients need top-up treatments to keep their teeth white? Top-ups are recommended every two to three months by wearing your whitening trays at home for one to two days. If you stopped this process, the teeth would eventually darken again.

F

acebook made a big fuss with the launch of its new Graph Search feature early in the year, but since then it’s been somewhat quieter, seemingly letting its rivals surge ahead. Certainly, there are signs that teenagers are turning away from Facebook and towards simpler chat apps on their phones; Snapchat (www.snapchat.com) was huge this year, for example. But of course, Facebook is still a force to be reckoned with, and still has bucket-loads of money to spend. Talking of money, arch rival Twitter floated itself on the New York stock exchange, making co-founder Evan Williams a multi-millionaire for the umpteenth time. Tiny videos became a thing in 2013: Twitter launched Vine (www.vine.co) and Instagram (instagram.com) joined in too. Google’s efforts to catch up by launching its own social network, Google+, were not well received. It annoyed thousands

of YouTube users by insisting they use G+ for comments on the video site. More than anything, and more than ever, though, 2013 felt like the year the internet completed its slow invasion of daily life. What’s new isn’t so much that the internet is everywhere, doing everything, but that people are no longer surprised by that. No-one bats an eyelid if their

TV comes with wi-fi. No-one is shocked if their child starts school with a new uniform, a username, and a password. We’ve started paying for stuff with our phones, and writing a cheque feels like a task from the dark ages. We’ve grown accustomed to the net and it’s an integral part of our lives, whether we want it to be or not.

DAY AT THE MUSEUM Days Out Start your new year with some free culture at one of Bristol’s excellent museums

I

f all the fun and festivities have left you short of cash and in need of a rest from rampant commercialism, why not join the happy throng who visit Bristol’s fabulous museums? Figures recently released by Visit England show Bristol Museums, Galleries and Archives are among the South West’s most visited tourist attractions. It’s no wonder – some of Bristol’s collections hold a mark of distinction, making them the most important collections not only in England, but in the world.

Jypz{vs U|zl|t huk Iy{ Ohssly€ Housed in the elegant and imposing Wills Memorial Building at the top of Park Street, Bristol Museum and Art Gallery is home to collections of regional, national and international importance, and is one of the few museums to have been awarded designated status by the Government – the mark of an outstanding museum. More than 20 galleries tell the story of our world: on the ground floor visitors can explore world culture by stepping back in time to ancient Egypt, studying archaeology and exploring the region’s natural wonders. The natural sciences section (on the second floor) invites visitors to take a journey through the last billion years of the history of the planet.

EATING IN COOK THY ZIDER Recipe Gwatkins cider and parsnip soup

W

ith a total of 14 local ciders and eight perries, award-winning Herefordshire cider makers Gwatkin Cider is rightly proud of its cider making heritage. It all started in 1992, when Dennis Gwatkin and his dad made a single barrel of perry, just for their own tippling, and the rest is history. Dennis says: “One day a certain Jon Hallam pulled up in the yard and after we’d given him a glass of perry, he was so impressed that he wouldn’t leave until we sold him five gallons. “Then the telephone started ringing and now we barrel quite a lot – 10,000

gallons this year. We’ve also won quite a few awards for our ciders and perries, and we now have an additional string to our bow – the Down on the Farm Festival, which we hold every July.” Gwatkin’s ciders are widely available in the South West, but if you can’t find the Kingston Black cider required for this recipe, you can substitute it with the Somerset Cider Brandy Company’s Burrow Hill Kingston Black, which is available at Cork’s of Cotham, on Cotham Hill. Recipe from Made in Herefordshire: Inspiring recipes using the very best Herefordshire produce, £20 (hardback), available from www.recipesmadehere.co.uk

o chef and restaurateur Cyrus Todiwala, Mumbai will always be Bombay; the city of his childhood and the land that cultivated his love of food. Growing up in this vibrant metropolis, Cyrus was always surrounded by the diverse dishes cooked by his mother, aunt, neighbours and the multitude of street stalls that still influence his cooking today. The new book, Mr Todiwala’s Bombay, is Cyrus’ gastronomic tour of the city that shaped his culinary career, while many of the dishes were inspired by other cultures and cuisines. The peri-peri chicken of Goa is named after the Piri-Piri or bird’s eye chilli, brought to Goa by the Portuguese from South America. They also planted it in Mozambique and Angola and it now thrives in many parts of Africa. The Goans changed the style of the original peri-peri chicken, which was simply cooked in a paste of crumbled red chillies, lime juice and lots of garlic. The same chilli is also the base for the famed Goan pork vindaloo, derived from another Portuguese dish of meat and wine (which evolved into vinegar and then the spices, including the fiery chillies, were added). Recipe from Mr Todiwala’s Bombay by Cyrus Todiwala, Hardie Grant (hardback), £25.

A CITY OF TWO TALES UK breaks Rob Stokes headed for a weekend break in London and had two brilliant, but contrasting days

F

rom a hundred yards away it looked as if people were lining the bridge to look at the river. But from 50 yards it became clear their interest had nothing to do with the water. They were peering down but at a series of carpet samples placed at regular intervals along the length of Westminster Bridge. And in broad daylight with the Houses of Parliament less than a stone’s throw away, scores of people were betting on the outcome of the three cup trick. There were more people standing looking at these impromptu games of chance than there were taking pictures of the London Eye. The men, and they were all men, held crisp £10 and £20 notes in their fingers and kept glancing furtively to their left and right ready to scoop up their cups and carpets tiles at a moment’s notice if police appeared. This was a sight strangely at odds with

London. It looked more like a scene from a street in Marrakesh. Perhaps that is what makes London special. After more than 40 years of visits, it remains ever-changing and full of surprises. And once you are there so much of it is free. Take the National Portrait Gallery. We found ourselves in there along with many other people escaping from a sudden afternoon downpour. “Just one more room and we’ll go,” said a mum to her collection of tired, clearly unimpressed young girls. Perhaps she hadn’t realised what it has taken me a long time to appreciate – that it is best to take these visits in small bites. Trying to see and do everything is a recipe for cultural overload. I was happy sticking to the portraits from 1900 onwards and, in particular, those of the late 20th century. A full-length Judi Dench dominated one

wall and there was a brilliant painting of former Prime Minister Harold Wilson peering out from behind clouds of smoke from his trademark pipe. Downstairs was a room of Bob Dylan watercolours and in the basement were photos for sale. I quite fancied the one of Dylan waiting for the Aust ferry in 1966. But, heavens, it was more than £1,600. Nearby was one of those streets that it is hard to believe still exist – pedestrianised and lined with bookshops, stores selling prints, rare posters and antiques. Stepping into Cecil Court was like stepping out of the 21st century. There was a touch of Diagon Alley about it. And it was enchanting. One shop had a collection of old railway prints, another had a window filled with first editions of books including Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. It seemed to operate at a gentler pace than the bustling streets

that crossed it at either end. It seems that, no matter where you go in London, you will always be drawn back to the Thames. And so an hour or so later we found ourselves strolling along the South Bank after stretching our legs across one of the Golden Jubilee footbridges. It’s always busy, noisy, vibrant and colourful there. The street magicians, guitarists and uni-cyclists were drawing crowds despite the late afternoon drizzle. But out of the wet a few yards from the Royal Festival Hall and nestling beneath arched concrete bridge supports was a huge second hand book sale. People were packed around trestle tables turning over paperbacks lined up in their hundreds. Like Cecil Court, it seemed amazing to find such a thing in the heart of London. Even in the age of Kindles, nothing beats a real book. We browsed and browsed, turning over Agatha Christies and Ian Flemings quietly, while London whirled around us. When it comes to staying in London, most of us surely want somewhere that is comfortable, convenient and welcoming. We were lucky in having all of those things at the four-star Chiswick Moran Hotel. It is literally less than a minute from the Chiswick turn off on the M4. So, if you are driving from Bristol, it is in the perfect place. Within a few minutes we had parked the car, checked-in and were strolling to the Gunnersby tube station just a minute away.

Obviously there are thousands of places to eat in London, but that evening we had a really lovely meal back at the hotel’s 1960s style Napa restaurant. To be honest, we only just made it back in time after calling into neighbouring Hammersmith’s Cineworld to see Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine. We came out, missed the bus back and then walked at a fairly brisk pace ringing the hotel on the way to apologise for being late. They were great about it, and within a couple of minutes of arriving, we were sitting down to a superb meal. The set menu of three courses comes in at £24 per head. We had baked cod for our main course followed by warm peaches and vanilla sauce. It was simply delicious. You would really struggle to match the quality and the price anywhere else in the capital. The Chiswick Moran is an airy, tastefully decorated, welcoming hotel. The rooms are spacious, light and comfortable, with a Sixties theme and finished with real class. The great thing about London is that you can have two completely contrasting days in one weekend. The following morning we went to nearby Kew Gardens, about a 20-minute walk from the hotel – or 40 minutes if you go the wrong way and wander up and down streets of pleasant but outrageously expensive Victorian terraces. It is years since I had been to Kew and I had forgotten how extraordinary it is. A World Heritage Site, it covers 300 acres on the edge of the capital and beneath the flight path for Heathrow airport. Yet despite planes going over every couple of minutes, it is remarkably tranquil. Apart from the famous Palm House, which looks like a giant glass submarine, and the myriad of trees and formal lawns, there has been since 2008 the Tree Top Walkway. This ingenious metal structure circles 59 feet in the air and takes you literally to the top of surrounding trees as well as giving stunning views across the park. It really is brilliant fun and, if you cannot manage the four flights of open stairs to the top, there is a lift. Back down on the ground, do stroll across Sackler Crossing, a bridge built of black granite edged by scores of flat bronze rectangular posts. Look at it from the side and the metal uprights fade into the background. It’s quite brilliant. We had spent a genuinely relaxing four hours at Kew. We could easily have stayed there all day, but the motorway beckoned. Just time for a final visit to the orangery for tea and cakes; a chance to dodge the showers and gaze out at a wonderfully English and unchanging piece of London. It could not have provided a greater contrast to the cosmopolitan gambling games on Westminster Bridge just over 24 hours before. Nyvt Nypkh€4 Rhu|hy€ ;4 :89<

hen he was just an inquisitive child picking up his brother’s guitar for the first time, Larry Miller wrote his first song. From that pivotal early encounter, he knew then that his future lay in rock music. “I just knew immediately that this was what I was put on the planet for,” says Miller, who has gone on to make a name for himself as one of the finest blues rock guitarists on the scene and who is often described as the natural successor to Rory Gallagher and Gary Moore. Miller firmly believed that his future was going to be in rock music after hearing some of the guitar greats, including Jimi Hendrix, Rory Gallagher, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Gary Moore. “For me, my moment of inspiration was seeing Rory

Gallagher live. I had never experienced anything like it. “So loud, so gloriously on the edge of total mayhem, yet Rory was still totally in control. How could I not want to do this, too? “Like Rory, I wanted to work under my own name, with a band, and I knew from the outset that I wanted to do all the writing, singing, producing, playing and leading.” Very quickly, Miller found his own blues/rock style, and has been constantly refining it. He is a guitarist, singer and songwriter, with a love for his music, which is simply infectious. Miller is now more popular than ever and is undeniably one of the must-see blues/rock acts. He is famous for

Nyvt Nypkh€4 Rhu|hy€ ;4 :89<

his mesmerising guitar playing and high octane shows in the UK and around Europe, bringing his unique showmanship and energy to every performance. He holds the record for the most encores at The Cambridge Rock Festival, and plays to capacity crowds and standing ovations. Miller has been broadcast live from The Great British R&B Festival on BBC Radio 2 and has headlined The Rory Gallagher International Festival in Ireland and Holland. Like many of his heroes and contemporaries, Miller achieves his unique sound by playing his Gibson Les Paul, Fender Stratocaster and Telecaster guitars through Marshall

amplification. He says: “Like many guitar greats, I have used Marshall for years as it gives me exactly what I need for my live shows, and I am proud to be sponsored by Marshall.” Miller is back on the road this month to play songs from his latest critically-acclaimed live double album, Live & Outlawed, plus songs from 2012’s On The Edge and his back catalogue of studio albums. He recently toured with American artists Johnny Winter and Walter Trout and the current line-up of the Larry Miller Band features bassist Allan Penford and ex-Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull) dummer Scott Hunter. His Bristol show at The Tunnels is sure to create plenty of interest from fans of classic rock and fellow guitarists and advance tickets are recommended, as the gig is likely to sell out on the night.

True 18th-century tale twisted beyond recognition Npst vm {ol ~llr <? ZWVQV 09:I4 99A tpuz1

E

ast meets west with a flurry of digital trickery in 47 Ronin, an ill-conceived martial arts epic inspired by the real-life tale of a group of samurai, who doled out justice in 18th-century Japan to avenge their master. While the original story is tightly woven into Japanese culture and has been passed down through the generations, Carl Rinsch’s lavish spectacle will quickly be forgotten. The film’s reported 170 million dollar budget has been invested in gorgeous production design and endless costumes. Beneath all of the lustrous packaging though, 47 Ronin is little more than a hoary B-movie with little interest in the nuances of Tokugawa-era Japan. Screenwriters Chris Morgan and Hossein Amini turn to sorcery to spice up their emotionally starved narrative, and call upon the warlocks of the special effects department to conjure a horned monster, a mythical dragon and a shape-shifting witch out of the ether. The desecration of revered source material is complete by casting Keanu

40 Weekend From Friday, January 3, 2014

Reeves as the vacuous hero, and gifting lifeless, stilted English dialogue to some of Japan’s best loved actors. Reeves plays outcast Kai, who is taken in by kindly Lord Asano (Min Tanaka) despite the other subjects labelling him a demon. Kai grows up a sensitive soul and catches the eye of Asano’s spirited daughter, Mika (Ko Shibasaki), but he realises their romance across the social divide is doomed. “I will always love you but you have your place and I have mine,” he laments. Mika’s heartache turns to anguish when scheming Lord Kira (Tadanobu Asano) uses a high-profile visit from Shogun Tsunayoshi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) to besmirch Lord Asano’s reputation. The Shogun orders Asano to commit seppuku – ritual suicide by disembowelment – to avoid bringing shame upon his house, then permits Mika one year to mourn before she must marry Kira and thereby unite the two kingdoms. Kuranosuke Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada) and Asano’s samurai guards are now masterless “ronin” and Kira banishes them to the wilderness. These brave warriors vow

revenge but, to get close to their enemy, they must place their trust in Kai before overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles, including Lord Kira’s most deadly ally, a wicked sorceress called Mizuki (Rinko Kikuchi). 47 Ronin could be Slash Of The Titans considering how much emphasis director Rinsch places on fantastical elements and action-packed skirmishes. Reeves has never been the most expressive actor and here he is practically zombified, struggling to convince us of his forbidden desire for Mika. Kikuchi loosely embraces her role as the pantomime villainess, complete with different coloured eyes, but doesn’t once feel like a lethal threat to Oishi and his brethren.

ona fide movie stars are a rare commodity in Hollywood, but Robert Redford has been burning bright for more than 50 years in iconic films including Barefoot In The Park, Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid, The Sting, All The President’s Men, Out Of Africa. Looking back over those performances, it’s hard to believe the Californian-born actor has never been feted at the Academy Awards. Admittedly, Redford collected a statuette as Best Director of Ordinary People, but when it comes to his work in front of the camera, plaudits have been scarce. All Is Lost might be the film to right that wrong. Written and directed by JC Chandor, whose debut Margin Call was a tautly paced drama set on the floor of a Wall Street investment bank, this lean, nail-biting thriller required the 76-year-old actor to perform many of his own stunts. He is in almost every single frame and apart from a couple of lines spoken into a

yacht’s malfunctioning radio, Redford has to convey his stricken character’s inner turmoil without uttering a word. The film opens on a July 13, approximately 1,700 nautical miles from the Sumatra Straits, with an unnamed sailor (Redford) preparing to surrender his soul to the sea. “I fought to the end,” he whispers in voiceover, “I’m not sure what that’s worth, but know that I did...” We glide back in time eight days to find the same sailor midway through a voyage across the Indian Ocean. His 39-foot yacht collides with a wayward metal container, which has been shed from a cargo vessel. The yacht’s hull is breached but the captain patches up his craft and continues his journey. Mother Nature is cruel though, and throws up a storm that batters the boat and leaves the sailor with dwindling food and water supplies. As sharks circle the stricken vessel, the sailor must use celestial navigation to chart a course back to humanity via the nearby shipping lanes. All Is Lost touches on similar themes to

Alfonso Cuaron’s blockbuster Gravity – solitude, mortality, the indomitability of the human spirit – albeit without the whizz-bang digital effects. Redford delivers a mesmerising solo performance. Every emotion is etched on his face and at every heartbreaking turn, we understand the churn of emotions beneath his wind-battered surface. Chandor orchestrates action sequences with aplomb, contrasting the sound and fury of the storm with the eerily beautiful calm of fish moving beneath the yacht. “I tried to be strong,” he tells us in voiceover. We try to be too, but tears born of frustration eventually flow.

Walter’s real life becomes as outlandish as his fantasies Zl}pl~ \ol [ljyl{ Tpml vm _hs{ly Up{{€ 0XO4 99< tpuz1

T

owards the end of The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, a respected photojournalist sits motionless on a mountainside in Afghanistan, staring intently through a lens as a rare snow leopard slinks into view. “Beautiful things don’t ask for attention,” coos the snapper, transfixed by the elusive big cat in its treacherous habitat. Ironically, Ben Stiller’s contemporary remake of James Thurber’s short story does demand attention with its flashy slow-motion dream sequences and rousing soundtrack courtesy of Arcade Fire, David Bowie and Icelandic indie-folk band Of Monsters And Men. The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty charts the misadventures of a dreamer, whose imagination conjures fantastical adventures to offset the gloom of his humdrum reality. A 1947 film version starring Danny Kaye deviated significantly from the source text to showcase the verbal and physical dexterity of the leading man. Stiller’s incarnation isn’t a one-man vanity piece to the same degree but it does rely heavily on the actor-director to shoulder the burden of comedy and

romance through various madcap interludes. Overall, the innate sweetness and whimsy of Steve Conrad’s script should go down a treat after the excesses of the festive season. Walter (Stiller) processes the negatives for respected magazine Life, taking care with each image, especially the work of globe-trotting photographer Sean O’Connell (Sean Penn). Throughout the day, Walter “zones out” and imagines declarations of love to pretty colleague Cheryl (Kristen Wiig), who seems oblivious to his existence. Arriving for work one morning, Walter learns that the magazine is being shut down to make way for the digital revolution of Life.com. Corporate toad Ted Hendricks (Adam Scott) is hired to oversee the “transition” and he rides roughshod over disgruntled staff. For the front cover of the final issue, Sean sends a special image but the negative goes astray. “It’s a big deal,” gasps Walter’s assistant Hernando (Adrian Martinez), “you lost a Sean O’Connell!” Reluctantly, Walter abandons his mother Edna (Shirley MacLaine) and sister Odessa (Kathryn Hahn) to embark on a life-altering

quest to track down Sean in Greenland. Stiller is inherently likeable and doesn’t shamelessly curry sympathy in early sequences when Walter is abused by Ted and his cronies. The inevitable showdown between the two men doesn’t produce the fireworks we expect or the film needs, and the romantic subplot with Wiig simmers but fails to come to the boil. The speed with which Walter’s real life becomes just as outlandish as his fantasies is surprising. Walter’s last-gasp escape from an erupting volcano is one thing, but to fend off a frenzied shark attack using a battered briefcase doesn’t just take the biscuit, it takes the entire tin. Plausibility overboard!

The secret life of Kristen Wiig She shot to fame with Bridesmaids, and Kristen Wiig’s honeymoon of success goes on. The actress and writer tells Keeley Bolger about daydreaming, spending time at home and why she learnt so much from her Walter Mitty co-star Ben Stiller.

T

aking on a David Bowie song is a bold ask for anyone, let alone someone who doesn’t consider themselves a natural singer, like Kristen Wiig, for instance. The actress, best known as reluctant maid of honour Annie in 2011’s hit comedy Bridesmaids, covers Space Oddity in her new film, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty. She’s just relieved that Bowie hasn’t lambasted her version – yet. “Singing was really fun,” says the 40-year-old, laughing. “I don’t consider myself a professional singer by any means, but we recorded at the Electric Lady in New York, which was incredible. “I’m a huge Bowie fan, so I hope he approves. I haven’t heard from him yet!” The film – based on a short story by James Thurber, first published in 1939 – focuses on Mitty (Ben Stiller), a man who escapes his anonymous life by daydreaming. But it’s not long before he finds himself thrown into the real world, with a very real love interest in kindly colleague Cheryl (Wiig). To help get the creative juices flowing, Wiig watched old classics, like The Apartment and Local Hero. Stiller, however, had other ideas: “Oh my gosh, he was like, ‘Let’s watch Zoolander, The Cable Guy...’ – all his movies!” Like the story’s protagonist, the actress admits that she often finds herself drifting off into fantasy land. “All the time,” she admits, nodding. “More than I should. My mind just goes all over the place. “I think we all daydream and find ourselves thinking about things that have nothing to do with the situation.” But unlike the majority of us, Wiig’s life really has become somewhat of a fantasy over the past couple of years. Raised in New York and Pennsylvania, she initially embarked on an art course at the University Of Arizona, and took an acting class on a whim. A teacher suggested she take it up professionally and, on their advice, Wiig dropped out of college and headed to Los Angeles where she joined The Groundlings, the legendary improvisation company which boasts the likes of Will Ferrell and Melissa McCarthy as former alumni. She started making a name for herself in her early thirties, when she joined Saturday Night Live (SNL). Unfailingly polite and pleasant, the softly-spoken star is a world away from her celebrated SNL impersonations, which include Drew Barrymore, Barbie, Jamie Lee Curtis and Bjork. After a few small but memorable roles, notably as Katherine Heigl’s passive aggressive

colleague Jill in 2007’s Knocked Up, Wiig had her breakthrough in the form of Bridesmaids, the sparkling comedy she co-wrote with long-time friend Annie Mumolo, about a group of mismatched women who find themselves thrown – hilariously – together for a mutual pal’s wedding. “My life has changed a lot [since Bridesmaids],” admits the actress. “I’m very grateful to have the opportunities I’ve had because of that film. It was an amazing experience.” There may not be much spare time for Wiig at the moment but she’s pleased with how her busy career is panning out. Although she’s previously ruled out a sequel to Bridesmaids, she and Mumolo, who met years ago at The Groundlings, are still writing. “Me and Annie are figuring out what we’re writing right now, but we’re starting,” she reveals. And watching Stiller, who also directed The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, has fuelled her interest in taking to the coveted director’s chair too. “I’ve been wanting to direct for a really long time. Watching someone like Ben, who’s done it so many times and is starring in the movie as well, was very inspiring.” That said, she isn’t sure how much multitasking she’d like to do. “I don’t know if I would be in a movie that I directed, probably not the first one, it just seems like a lot to handle,” she admits. “I don’t really know how Ben could have done so much on this whole project. “He was intensely involved with every single aspect of the movie, wearing all these hats, and then he’d step into the scene as an actor, too. I learned a lot from him.” The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty isn’t the only movie she pops up in over the festive period. As a huge fan of Anchorman, she was thrilled when she landed a role in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues as Chani, the object of Steve Carell’s affections, who wears a rather distracting permed wig. “That wig is a whole different character in that movie,” she says, laughing. “I loved it. I mean, I love those guys and it was a really great experience, and the outfits were really fun. “The first film is one of my all time favourites, so it was very exciting.” But for all the fame and success she’s enjoyed in recent years, it’s not on the red carpet that she’s happiest, it’s home. “I haven’t had a lot of time off recently but [when I do] I’d like to visit my family and go home,” Wiig says, smiling. “That’s the best thing to do.”

ver the past ten years, local theatre company Ministry of Entertainment re-awakened plenty of memories of Bristol’s recent past with their wonderful plays, which mix period music with storylines based on hundreds of memories of 1940s and 1950s Bristol. MoE’s first trilogy was set during the Second World War in Bristol, and followed a handful of city folk getting through the war as best they could via a doughty mix of dignity and humour, offset by some of the most recognisable tunes of the era. Three further plays took us through the 1950s. The logical next step for MoE, then, was the 1960s – and their next show takes us to the beginning of that turbulent decade. Celebrating their 15th year of touring, the MoE return with Normal Service Will Be Resumed..., a show set at a time when the world looked on anxiously in fear of nuclear apocalypse. It’s now 1962, and things are not looking good. Kennedy and Khrushchev are about to collide over Cuba – but the real trouble is brewing thousands of miles away, deep below the surface of Bristol. In a top-secret location, studio assistant Skippy Catford cheerily mops away 20 years’ worth of dust

and grime from the BBC’s emergency wartime studio. All the while, she daydreams about Stanton Drew (geddit?), the voice of wartime Britain and everybody’s favourite velvet-voiced radio celebrity. Broadcasting to the nation, Drew’s velvety tones and cut-glass accent help keep the country’s collective chin up during these anxious times. But, when the Cold War suddenly heats up, Stanton and Skippy are trapped underground with nothing but a pair of coconut shells and a swanee whistle to keep themselves amused. Chaos reigns – and the fate of the nation’s morale is in the hands of this ill-assorted duo. MoE’s latest offering promises their usual delicious blend of period songs and madcap comedy. Starring MoE co-founder Kate McNab and her regular co-star Ross Harvey, it is written by prolific Bristol playwright Mike Akers, who has written for Bristol Old Vic and Tobacco Factory Theatres among others, and features music by Kit Morgan. “Having done three shows set in the 1940s and another three in the 1950s, I thought it was time to move on into the 1960s,” Kate explains. “Then I started wondering where we could set this one. One day, I saw an advert for Clifton Rocks Railway Open Day,

which caught my imagination – and so Normal Service is set down a tunnel! “And the Cuban Missile Crisis forms the backdrop to the drama, in which two characters from very different backgrounds are thrown together in a confined space and have to get on with the job in hand. “In keeping with our usual methods, we collected a lot of oral history from those who remember the early Sixties. “They were a different era from what came a little later – we hadn’t really arrived at the Swinging Sixties yet!” An additional attraction for Kate was that the new show drew on an era that she herself could recall. “It was a nostalgic experience trawling through the hits of ’62. I particularly liked Might As Well Rain Until September by the young Carole King. “Elsewhere, one of my interviewees had Mr Pastry [the comic creation of actor/comedian Richard Hearne: an old man with a walrus moustache, dressed in a black suit or raincoat and with a trademark bowler hat] present an actual Austin car to his father who won first prize in a competition. Another person remembered his ‘gang’ eating daffodil bulbs because a rumour had gone round that they gave you a high. Innocent times!”

Plato, UFOs and quantum mechanics inspire Robbie XQKS WN \PM _MMS av| Iyl \ol ]s{pth{l Y|hu{|t Kvtw|{ly Nypkh€4 Rhu|hy€ ; {v Nypkh€4 Rhu|hy€ ;94 Nvsr Pv|zl jhm°7ihy4 Jypz{vs6 [ll spz{punz mvy kl{hpsz6

s a young boy growing up in Bishopston in north Bristol, Robbie Sparks’ imagination was fired by the US Apollo space missions of the late 1960s and early 1970s, including that triumphant first manned landing on the moon in the summer of 1969. “I remember just staring into the night sky and wondering, ‘what’s out there?’” Robbie, now a successful abstract painter, recalls. “Later in my teens, me and my mates would head for Cley Hill near Warminster, which was supposedly a UFO hotspot around that time (though I never saw one)!” These early interests in life beyond our terrestrial boundaries have clearly fed into Robbie’s colourful, dynamic and intriguing abstract paintings, a selection of which are on view at two Bristol venues

(Bedminster’s Café Grounded and the Folk House café/bar on Park Street) this month. Bold colours and geometric designs predominate in these paintings which, as Robbie explains, are all visual explorations of some big, deep and intriguing questions about our life on this planet – and our own human consciousness that perceives and tries to make sense of it all. “I am inspired by everything from the abstract consciousness of the mind to the weird and wonderful world of quantum physics and the Golden Ratio,” Robbie explains. “I use symbols and messages to express the timeless beauty in nature’s dynamic principles.” In particular, the paintings that feature in Robbie’s new exhibition at the Folk House delve into that most fascinating and mind-bending of subjects: quantum mechanics – the branch of mechanics that deals

with the mathematical description of the motion and interaction of subatomic particles. Robbie explains the origins of these far-reaching interests: “A creative edge started to emerge in me quite early on, and after leaving Bristol I became a chef for the next 20 years, travelling the world in between – painting all the while, but never exhibiting due to my ever-evolving style. “My interest in the world of the ever-expanding universe was now reversing into the strange and wonderful world of quantum physics, and my work began to take on the forms of slightly unusual distressed geometric imagery! “The great scientists and philosophers with their symbols of sacred geometry and number inspired me –amongst others Plato, Isaac Newton, Fibonacci [the mediaeval Italian mathematician who popularised

our numeral system as well as the number sequence that bears his name] and Max Planck [the German physicist and originator of quantum theory] among others. “I have now reached a point where my work will take you on a journey that I feel is unlike anything of its kind. “As Plato observed some 2,000 years ago, ‘what we assume to be real can easily turn out to be an illusion’. From the atom to the quark, and onto the quantum computer creating a simulated universe of reality, this is the world that I paint from – and it’s a great place to be looking in on!” As to the unusual title of his Folk House show (You Are The Ultimate Quantum Computer), Robbie explains, “The ultimate quantum computer, and creator of patterns, is each one of us. “Consciousness creates all, and this is the world of ideas that I paint from!”

After Annie The dogs of war are unleashed down at the park

T

he latest novel by Orange Prize award winner Suzanne Berne is set in Littlefield, Massachusetts, named one of the ten best places to live in America. It seems like the perfect place; neighbourly, with leafy streets and a quaint village centre. But all is not as it seems – the use of the park has caused fractures between the dog owners and the rest of the community worrying about dogs being let off the leash and how they behave. There are also fears over coyotes coming into town, and all these fears come to a head when a dog is found poisoned. Into this troubled community comes an anthropologist wanting to learn what makes Littlefield a place

for a better quality of life. Berne treats the story almost like a jewel, slowly turning and revealing different facets, focussing on different characters but coming back to Margaret, who is middle-aged and feeling like her life is coming apart. Her husband is unhappy, but neither of them can articulate their problems – even with the help of one of the town’s many psychiatrists. Over the course of months, more dogs die, Margaret’s anxiety escalates and she alienates her teenage daughter. The novel has a dreamy quality. At first it seems as if it is a mystery novel, then a comedy of manners examining the difference between men and women in a sharp and revealing way. It raises many questions about how to live, both in a

Nyvt Nypkh€4 Rhu|hy€ ;4 :89<

small domestic way but also how best to bear the burdens that life throws in your path. It is contemplative and a sensitive portrayal of how fear shapes the way we live.

PROPERTY

PIECE OF PARKLAND Property of the week Locking Parklands, Weston-super-Mare

D

emand for new houses at Weston-super-Mare’s Locking Parklands has been so high that the builder has released the next phase early – eight of which have already been reserved off plan. Houses at two of the first three phases of the award-winning development by St Modwen Homes have sold out, while 70 per cent of properties at The Meadows have been reserved from plan. The newly launched Poppyfields section will consist of 94 properties when complete, including two, three and four-bedroom houses, with prices starting from £242,950. Ben Cook, Regional Residential Director at St Modwen Homes said: “Locking Parklands has experienced a phenomenal sales rate, much higher than the national and regional average. “We’ve now sold more than 100 homes at the development and, in light of the many enquiries we received regarding the new homes, we made the decision to launch Poppyfields ahead of schedule. “Construction is currently under way on

58

Nyvt Nypkh€4 Rhu|hy€ ;4 :89<

two phases at the development – The Meadows and Poppyfields – with work predicted to start on further homes in 2014.” All the houses in Poppyfields will be available to purchase under the Government’s Help to Buy scheme which

means a home can be secured with a deposit of just five per cent. Locking Parklands recently won the top prize for its house designs at the 2013 Housebuilder awards. Among the stand-out features is a full wooden frontage on the four-bedroom detached Aspen. And, typical of St Modwen Homes’ properties, the Aspen has full-height windows in each of the rooms, including a bay window in the family room and a balcony leading off the master bedroom, allowing natural light to flood in. Not only has the development proven successful on the residential side, but St Modwen also recently completed the first office building. Once completed, Locking Parklands will comprise approximately 650,000 sq ft of employment space, including a 30,000 sq ft Innovation Centre, creating up to 2,000 jobs. For more information, the marketing suite, off Farnborough Road, is open daily, 10am to 6pm. Alternatively, call 0844 243 4848, or visit www.stmodwenhomes.co.uk

PUT ON A BOLD FRONT Whatever people say, sometimes looks do matter – especially when it comes to your front door. Julia Gray explains.

E

nsuring your front door is smart, bright and stylish can make all the difference when it comes to making a good first impression. The easiest thing to do is change the door furniture; chrome or satin nickel is more fashionable than brass and gives a smart, contemporary look, suited to both period and modern doors. Get metal door numbers to match, or consider frosted-film numbers if you have a glazed or partially glazed door or porch. They can be fiddly to fit, but they look stunning. Paint on exterior doors has a tendency to crack and flake, letting in water as well as looking shabby. Start by removing the door from its hinges and taking off the door furniture. Use a wood scraper to remove any flaking or cracked paint, then sand smooth and apply flexible exterior wood filler to the repairs. When set, sand it – and the rest of the door. (Tip: At this time of year its worth

62

Nyvt Nypkh€4 Rhu|hy€ ;4 :89<

looking for quick-drying DIY products). Choose the new paint colour carefully; ideally, the colour should go with the building’s brickwork, paintwork or other exterior finish, and suit its age and style of architecture. While some, classic colours, such as red, black and dark blue, remain popular for front doors, greys, duck-egg blues and greens are fashionable now. Apply a coat or two of exterior wood primer/undercoat and once dry, rub down the door with fine sandpaper to remove any dust and debris, then wipe over with a damp cloth. When dry, this will create a good surface for the topcoat to adhere to and should ensure a good finish. For the topcoat, use an exterior wood paint and apply to all the exposed surfaces, including the top and bottom edges. Missing these will mean that water seeps in over time, causing the wood to shrink and expand. When the first coat’s completely dry, apply a second coat (for a how-to video, visit www.sandtex.co.uk).

If your front door is beyond repair, you’ll need to replace it, but before you do, check the rules. The door may need to comply with building regulations, particularly if it is glazed. And if you live in a listed building, or in a conservation area, you may need consent from your local council. Planning permission may be required to replace a front door, or even only to paint it a different colour. Similarly, if your home is leasehold, you may need the freeholder’s permission to change the front door, or it may belong to the freeholder and not you – check your lease carefully if in doubt. Replacing a front door can be tricky, because new doors take quite a bit of adjusting to fit the size of the frame, so it’s probably worth getting in professional help. Fitting the locks can also be a challenge, too, so getting a carpenter in is advisable, because as well as looking good, your door must, of course, be practical and up to the job of keeping your home safe and secure.

Retirement dreaming? Wake up to the benefits of renting at ‘The Hawthorns’ FINDING a practical solution which matches the quality of your retirement living dream may be easier said than done – and renting may not automatically spring to the top of your list of possible solutions. However, increasing numbers of UK retirees are discovering what their counterparts in America and Australia found out a few years back – that renting your retirement home offers many advantages over continued property ownership. Even more are discovering how you can continue to benefit from both! Hawthorns Retirement has brought its highly successful American formula for retirement living to the UK at Eastbourne, Clevedon and Braintree. These developments, in a nutshell, offer you continued independent living, none of the worries of home ownership and total flexibility to change your lifestyle at a month’s notice should circumstances dictate. And all this is achieved by renting your retirement home at The Hawthorns.

Call 01275 790060

Your monthly rental includes all your many monthly expenses including all your meals and snacks, utility bills, housekeeping, maintenance – even a free mini-bus to take you to the shops and back. If you sit down and calculate what you are spending on all those items living in your own home, the rental fees appears very reasonable indeed. As well as the financial argument, life at The Hawthorns offers the added benefits of security, companionship and the flexibility of handing in just one month’s notice of your decision to leave. Whilst many residents fund this idyllic retirement lifestyle from the proceeds of the sale of their home, many others opt to rent out their own property and fund their new-found lifestyle from the rental income, maintaining their property as part of their estate. Maybe you should wake up to the benefits of renting!
