'The End of Longing' tells the story of four disillusioned thirty-somethings, each on the brink of an early mid-life crisis. Perry's character is Jack, an alcoholic who finds himself falling in love with 'high-class' prostitute Stephie.
Freedom is important and freedom is a world I'm working towards, I hope everyone else is too. Freedom is likely what the girl in the video wants too. We all need understanding to combat the circumstances that make her and many others so frustrated, so things like dreads won't matter anymore.
Kenneth Branagh is actually on ketamine in this play. I mean not actually, he's doing acting, but one of the characters has cruelly injected his character's bum with horse tranquiliser and it's safe to say he struggles. His trousers fall down a lot.

God's Own Junkyard is a shimmering Aladdin's cave of new and salvaged retro neon signage, religious iconography, disco balls and shimmering film props hanging from the ceiling and festooning every available surface in a warehouse space on an industrial estate in Walthamstow.

When I was a kid I used to mock the names of the great French authors Gustave Flaubert and Honoré de Balzac. I used to pronounce Flaubert as "Flow Be...
Vivian Maier shot over 100,00 photographs all while being a nanny and living a discreet, mysterious life. The only reason that her work became public and known was because of a coincidental discovery by filmmaker John Maloof who made it his mission to unravel her story to the world.
For the last couple of years, I've collaborated on a number of photography projects with artists, barbers, men's clothing brands etc, so my main focus has been capturing men on camera. As a lover of history, my inspiration for the majority of the shoots I've done comes from the great men of art and early colour photography.
Not only does the prize shine a light on work that might otherwise not be read but, with its judges (not all of whom are Jewish), the award also brings together different perspectives of what being Jewish and Jewish interest mean in the UK in 2016.
