Far North is a chilling film from Asif Kapadia (Senna, The Warrior). Set in the vast and remote landscape of the Arctic, it tells a beautiful, shocking story of survival and revenge. Against her instincts, a woman, Saiva (played by Michelle Yeoh: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), rescues a wounded stranger (Sean Bean: Lord of the Rings trilogy) from the ice and nurses him back to health with the help of the young and stunning Anja. The two women compete for the mans affection, only to become embroiled in a heated love triangle. Shot with precision under treacherous conditions, the lm shows the universal longing for love and connection, amid the hardships of arctic life. With an original score to match the intensity of the images, Far North delves deep into a world of myth, love, scorn, deceit and, ultimately, the overwhelming force of nature.

In the shock of her move, she misjudges charismatic cotton mill-owner John Thornton, whose strength of purpose and passion are a match for her own pride and wilfulness. When the workers of Milton call a strike, Margaret takes their side, and the two are brought into deeper conflict. As events spiral out of control, Margaret - to her surprise - begins to fall in love with Thornton...

In my quest to do new things this year I?ve been going to restaurants I?ve never been to before. I?ve also been shaking things up by looking for a new job. Talking to my friend Sloan (who happens to be my partner Allan?s cousin), I had mentioned that I had an interview in North Port in Perth. Rather bizarrely, she had just been talking to a colleague about a restaurant that had just...

Miami is divided into several districts:
It is where the gorgeous, young sun-seekers head for the day relaxing on the miles and miles of glorious beach, and a night partying in the clubs. It is also home to the fabulous Art Deco distric, housing around 800 buildings, near Dade Blvd at the North & 6th Street at the South.
Just north of South...
