ronan and dylan farrow dismiss brother's 'a son speaks out' essay
in recent years her younger brother, journalist ronan farrow, 30, has spoken out about her case while reporting on sexual misconduct by powerful men in the new yorker, which shared a pulitzer prize with the new york times. with greater attention on harassment and sexual misconduct from the #metoo movement, many in hollywood have said they would not work with allen again.ronan farrow posted a statement on twitter in which he said his brother's essay was part of a `repeated campaign to discredit my sister, often by attacking our mother`.ronan farrow, left, with his mother mia farrow. photo: aphe continued, `my mother did an extraordinary job raising us and none of my siblings with whom i've spoken to ever witnessed anything but love and care from a single mom who went through hell to keep her kids safe.` he said moses farrow had said much the same in the past.`i believe my sister,` he added.this is not the first time moses farrow has supported his father in an acrimonious family battle that has pitted mother, father, brothers and sisters against one another in a very public scrum. in his essay, he said he decided to speak out again now, hoping people will be more receptive to his story.mia farrow acted in more than a dozen of allen's films while they were together from 1979 to 1992, although they lived in separate manhattan apartments on opposite sides of central park.they split after she discovered nude photographs allen had taken of soon-yi previn, then 22, the daugh...

`as a pack, we've got to bring the physicality. rory has been leading the way with and without the ball for a number of weeks,` mckellar said.`i think he's been playing as good as he's ever played, so as a group we have to step up and replace that. we've got to make sure that from 1-8 and the bench when they come on, that they bring that energy and raw aggression that rory has been producing.`it's in the individual mind set, making sure you bring intent to everything that you do. if you're relying on a speech or conversation to get ready to go, you shouldn't be there in the first place.`we need to understand that we need to bring a lot of physicality ... the bulls are going to come out firing, they'll be wanting to respond after what john mitchell said.`mckellar has called on spring tour wallaby blake enever to replace arnold in the second row, while lachlan mccaffrey will start at blindside flanker to replace rob valetini.loadingthey're the only two changes to the starting xv, with the brumbies desperately trying to avoid another loss and equalling the worst losing streak in the club's history.inconsistency has been their biggest problem this year. they have shown glimpses of strong attacking rugby this year, but have been plagued by brain snaps and poor decisions.the mounting penalty count against the johannesburg lions last week cost them any chance of victory and mckellar says they must adapt better to referee interpretations.`but the thing is, the boys h...

cats want to play hawks, pies, dons at geelong
geelong remain hopeful they may once again play collingwood, hawthorn or essendon at gmhba stadium as they prepare to host carlton at home for the first time since 1997.cats ceo brian cook says the club deserves the chance to host at least one of the five big-drawing victorian clubs each year after $200 million was spent developing the stadium, with about $90 million still needed to complete the final stage.2010: when gary ablett last played at the cats' home ground.photo: joe armaowith homecoming hero gary ablett returning to play his first game at the stadium in geelong colours since 2010 the game is expected to be a sellout with rusted-on blues fans making the rare trip down the highway.cook said the afl's recent acceptance that high-drawing clubs can play at gmhba stadium was significant and he argues it is ideal for big victorian clubs to play at the venue if they hit a trough in form or are drawn to play the cats twice.`what we are fighting against is the kpi [key performance indicator] of the afl around maximising crowds year on year and i get it, but we have a mentality that we want the best games down here,` cook told fairfax media.

kids invite adults into their world in the innovative lone
`but it's kind of impossible to stuff up, because there's no real fixed script,` adds 11-year-old thomas.`and they don't actually know what's supposed to happen,` lola admits.clea, 10, says it's easier to perform alone `because it's not like if you say something at the wrong time then it messes up everyone else's lines and they get confused as well and the whole show is ruined ... it's just you. you work it out.`lone's child-adult gambit raises questions of safety, privacy, power and surveillance, but for emma valente – one half of the rabble, along with kate davis – the provocation is a counterpoint to the forced separation of the two groups in contemporary life.`what i'm interested in is the fact that adults and children who are strangers don't get to interact very often,` she says. `as an adult you don't get to make friends with a child or be alone with a child that you don't know very often. i feel like we're missing out. i feel like it's a gift to the audience to have this precious time that is protected, where you can be alone in a space that they've designed, and can be invited into.`each of lone's 11 boxes will be a miniature world as dreamt up by its young occupant. after being invited in by the child, an audience member will bear witness to their invented story of loneliness, which valente says is the real taboo with which the work grapples.`for some reason [loneliness] is a frontier that feels difficult for people to admit to or conf...

penelope fitzgerald's divided village loses some bite in the bookshop
bill nighy and emily mortimer become allies in the bookshop.photo: transmission films spanish writer-director isabel coixet takes on the job here and quite a few of fitzgerald's sharp edges have been planed away, along with the wit that makes her such fun to read. nonetheless, coixet has no trouble with her theme, which is centred on the power of ideas and the books that contain them. and the village's eccentrics have retained their capacity to amuse as they discover that they do have time for reading, after all. bill nighy is one of them, shambling artfully through the action as the reclusive edmund brundish, florence's best customer. she delivers his purchases personally so that they can enjoy the kind of bookish conversations they have both been missing. when she's trying to make up her mind if she should dare to order in copies of nabokov's lolita, he's the one she turns to for advice. fitzgerald describes florence as `small, wispy and wiry, somewhat insignificant from the front view and totally so from the back`. this isn't quite the way coixet sees her, having cast the seriously good-looking emily mortimer in the part. while the opening scenes have her turning up to violet's party in an unflattering dress, insignificant is not the word that comes to mind. but what can you say? it is a movie, after all. the story is told in flashback and there are bursts of voice-over spoken by a character who remains unidentified until the end. the pace is gentle and the wind-...

how ed harris unlocked the key to his role in kodachrome
ed harris and elizabeth olsen hit the road in kodachrome.photo: christos kalohoridis harris' character, ben, is a mean-spirited, razor-tongued man whose only son matt (jason sudeikis) has refused for years to speak to him, feeling he has been punished enough in life. ben's photographs tell another story, however. they are humane, committed, visionary and will earn him a hero's welcome at dwayne's. matt works as an a&r man for a music company, but he is another true believer in art who finds himself out of step with the digital world. indeed, he is on the brink of being sacked for failing to make any profitable signings, largely because his nervous bosses won't take on any of the rock innovators he brings to the table. thus begins the road movie, which raso has appropriately insisted on shooting on old-school film stock. a young woman (elizabeth olsen) arrives in matt's office announcing she is his father's nurse, that he is dying and that he wants matt to drive him to kansas. he is persuaded only because it may give him a chance to meet the band that might save his career. off they go, carping and sparring. it is clear enough where this dramedy of father, son and attractive, available woman is headed, but they have some obstacles to clear before they get there. raso says he always wanted harris as ben. it is easy to see why; his stencil-sharp face and piercing blue gaze convey intensity without a word having to be said. that forcefulness has made characters who are ver...

death of author philip roth marks end of a cultural era
roth did a similar kind of crushing and revealing. his work had more rage, more wit, more lust, more talk, more cross-currents of thought and emotion, more turning over of the universals of existence (in his case, the jewish-american existence), as if tending meat over a fire, than any writer of his time.he was a born spellbinder, a man guided by voices. `i'm an ecouteur — an audiophiliac. i'm a talk fetishist,` says the protagonist of his 1990 novel deception. roth was a kind of roiling ecouteur as well.he became famous as a young man because of the scandal that surrounded his fourth book, portnoy's complaint (1969), in which he put his pent-up hero on a psychiatrist's couch and allowed him to blissfully rant.alexander portnoy confessed most famously the amorous attention he paid to a piece of raw liver, `bought one afternoon at a butcher shop and, believe it or not, violated behind a billboard on the way to a bar mitzvah lesson`.there was so much onanism in the novel (`i am the raskolnikov of jerking off — the sticky evidence is everywhere!`) that writer jacqueline susann said on the tonight show that she'd love to meet roth but did not want to shake his hand.roth, who never won the nobel prize that many predicted for him, once said: `i wonder if i had called portnoy's complaint 'the orgasm under rapacious capitalism', if i would thereby have earned the favour of the swedish academy.`replayreplay videoloadingplay videoplay videoplaying in 5 ...below t...

afl's unsung hero steps aside
one club chief executive who communicated the news of peek's illness to me back then broke down over the phone and an equally long-serving club president did the same. for so many afl clubs peek has been their sounding board, their back channel and their friend.making it his unwavering task to fill the not-insignificant void between head office and non-victorian clubs, peek has, according to them, successfully bridged the isolation particularly felt by those club chiefs in the northern markets. and not only through the dinners he hosts on the eve of every meeting of the 18 club chiefs and his generally excellent taste in restaurants.reflecting on the cataclysmic changes to the game over the past 29 years and running them in parallel to peek's time in the game evokes those scenes in forrest gump where the tom hanks character is always there – when john kennedy was shot, then martin luther king, then during the 1960s triumphs of the us space program, the anti-vietnam war riots and so on.except that where peek and football were concerned he was never a bystander. he played significant roles in the afl events that have shaped the game and beyond it. after damian monkhorst racially taunted michael long in the 1995 anzac day game, peek's role in creating the racial and religious vilification code was pivotal. revolutionary in australian sport his lengthy meetings with virtually all of the game's indigenous players led to a deeper understanding of what football was tackling an...

teen uses siri to call triple zero after after bike crash in bush
paramedics attend to darcy mckay after his bike crashed on a rutted dirt track in pambula beach. he used siri to call triple zero.photo: supplied“i came around a corner way too quick, the front wheel went into a pot hole and i went straight over the handle bars,” he said.“it was pretty nasty. i felt pain straight away in my lower back, i just freaked out because i knew that i had done something to my back – but i could move my toes, which was a relief.”darcy managed to feel his phone in his pocket but could not grab it so he engaged with the siri voice command function on his apple iphone to call for help by saying, “hey siri, call triple zero, on speaker.”“i couldn't move my legs, i had no muscle movement at all and was freaking out, so i used siri to call triple zero straight away.”siri dialled triple zero on speaker phone for darcy, allowing him to give directions to the operator without using his hands.“i am so thankful i knew how to use siri properly,” he said.“and, i am so happy i thought of using it, otherwise i would have been stuffed.”it took 20 minutes for emergency services to arrive as darcy’s location was tricky to find.“it was very scary lying there by yourself. i had to explain to them where i was as there were a few turns they had to take to get to me.”darcy was taken to the south east regional hospital.before he can return to work, he will need to recover for six weeks, and a further four to six weeks to regain his strength.da...

is it ok to wear sneakers to a wedding?
queen of the nude shoe ... the duchess of cambridge.photo: apat the duke and duchess of cambridge's wedding back in 2011, the vote on footwear was unanimous. the majority of guests adopted the shoe of the moment; an almond toe, platform-fronted nude stiletto. and we all know, that the style – specifically lk bennett's `sledge` – would fast become synonymous with the bride herself.at race days, weddings and parties, we hailed the glossy, naked-look stiletto as a fashion saviour, the easy, nay mindless, solution for anyone short of an answer to that age old conundrum; which shoes go with this outfit? in diligently matching them to our legs, instead, we eliminated all possible clashes and had a pair of shoes that, by virtue of chiming with nothing in our wardrobes, actually worked with everything.fast forward seven years, though, and the ultimate fashion troubleshooter may have had its day. shoe designers have been championing mules and slingbacks, while influential buyers are talking about updates on the classic court, with higher vamps and popping colours. `the traditional pump has moved forward with a fashion point of view,` notes net-a-porter fashion director lisa aiken, who cites tibi and souliers martinez as labels she loves. `it's had a revamp.`at prince harry and meghan markle's wedding last weekend, there was no obvious ruling on shoes. instead, their guests unwittingly gave a masterclass in how many different ways there are to get it right (and wrong) rig...

an unforgettable concert combining bach's music and world
bach and his world: tafelmusik baroque orchestra, musica viva, llewellyn hall, thursday may 24, 7pm.johann sebastian bach, the composer who never fails us, was celebrated by the tafelmusik orchestra in an unforgettable concert combining music, choreography, projected images and a narrated discourse on the fabric of bach’s instruments and the fibres that made up his clothing, the paper he composed on and the implements he used to record and notate his musical ideas.tafelmusik performs music of j.s. bach.. photo: glenn davidsonthose who may have read my reviews in the past would know my suspicions about musical productions that combine multimedia and drama with chamber music, but in this case the blend was perfect. alison mackay, the double bass player, was also responsible for the concept, program and script for the performance.narrator blair williams led us into the philosophical and artisanal world of bach’s leipzig. his descriptions of the textile trade were linked to explicit dress-codes for each level in the class system of the era. bach, the musical genius we revere, was a fourth-class citizen, permitted to wear not a scrap of colour - only locally produced silk and dark woollen jackets with silver buttons.the relationship between bach and hoffman’s musical instrument manufacture was illustrated by a series of images showing the process of selecting the correct timber for a cello and patiently carving the top and back plates, neck, scroll and bow, cutting the purf...

not the messiah goes for baroque and pop and other musical genres
he says that while the piece seems to be all about brian, the role is in fact mostly reactive, with things happening to brian rather than him driving his fate — `well, that just happened` is how begbie puts it.the other soloists are baritone tobias cole, whose roles include that of narrator, louise page (brian's mother mandy) and demi smith (brian's girlfriend judith) and bass david pearson, who plays reg, leader of the people's front of judea, and biggus dickus, a roman officer of great power.conductor leonard weiss echoes begbie, saying not the messiah is `a delightfully funny piece`. this will be his third time conducting a collaboration between the orchestra and the canberra choral society, although the previous works he conducted, by two carls — vine and orff — are somewhat different in character.weiss says the focus of the piece is musical rather than theatrical, in a wide variety of genres — idle called it `baroque 'n' roll`.cole says, `i love that it's a mashup of different styles.`while there's obviously some parodying of handel's messiah — hence the title — idle and his collaborator, he says, aren't just going for baroque but include many other styles: `doo-wop, broadway, even bob dylan — using whatever he needs to make people laugh.`python fans will recognise some favourite bits in there, too, including the inevitable singalong ending, always look on the bright side of life.eric idle, co-writer of not the messiah, in monty python's...
