From houndstooth trousers to Mr Motivator’s leotards, pattern is always a delight | Hannah Jane Parkinson
I would find it difficult to muddle through life without beautiful, artistic patternsThere’s a Mary Quant exhibition on at the V&A at the moment, which, if you’re able to, I would urge you to visit. If not, and you are more talented with a sewing machine than I am, the website has downloadable sewing patterns.I would find it difficult to muddle through life without pattern; not in the sense of routine, but actual beautiful, artistic patterns. Once, aged 18 and roaming around Moscow, I spotted an older man wearing an almost exact replica of the blue argyle sweater I had on. I bounded over and suggested a photograph together, and it is now one of my favourites: these two strangers beaming. Neither of us speaking the other’s language, but also 100% conversing sartorially. I think of him sometimes and look at that photograph like one with an old friend. Continue reading...

Games for Lovers review – truth or dare in the internet age
The Vaults, LondonThere’s an air of holiday fun in Ryan Craig’s play about searching for romance in a digital world. It’s a fun, if predictable, watchA giddy carefreeness underpins this light-hearted new comedy about love in the internet age – it feels as if everyone is cutting loose for the summer. Playwright Ryan Craig has penned a couple of big hitters for the National Theatre, including The Holy Rosenbergs, and the superlative sound designers Ben and Max Ringham are also on board. But no one has particularly stretched themselves. Anthony Banks’s production is efficient and easygoing – a perfectly fun yet fairly predictable watch. Continue reading...

The Wedding Guest review – Michael Winterbottom thriller runs out of fizz
Dev Patel stars as a Brit who shops for duct tape and handguns before turning up at an arranged marriage in PakistanFilm-maker Michael Winterbottom has always been a powerhouse of ideas and a uniquely valuable presence in the British industry – this prolific and eclectic director has taken on every kind of genre. (Maybe the nearest American equivalent is Steven Soderbergh.) Recently, he had great successes with his terrific music movie On the Road (2016), his Russell Brand documentary The Emperor’s New Clothes (2015), and The Trip, the foodie-travel comedy series with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon.Now as writer-director he returns to a theme he has explored in the past: the UK’s connection with south Asia, with an interesting but ultimately disappointing drama-thriller. It has an intriguing premise and a gripping first act. But the ending fizzles when it should explode, giving us neither the twisty and suspenseful entertainment that it seemed to promise, nor the serious response to sexual politics in Pakistan that also seemed to be on offer. Yet the initial scenes are laid out with enormous elan and a tremendous flair for location work. Continue reading...

Trump's been hating on America. Is it time for him to leave?
The president says if Democratic congresswomen criticize the US, they should go elsewhere. But mocking America is one of his own favorite pastimesAt a campaign rally in North Carolina last night, the president’s attacks against four progressive congresswomen of color culminated in his most overt attack yet. Referring to Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib as “hate-filled extremists”, he continued his tirade to the delight of his supporters.“They’re always telling us how to run it, how to do this, how to do that. You know what? If they don’t love it, tell ’em to leave it,” Trump said to the crowd, who soon erupted into a chant of “send her back”. Continue reading...

Consider, too, that even after this latest batch, we’ll only be three US states into a nationwide – or perhaps global? – makeover. This could go on for a while yet. Would that be so bad?Undoubtedly, the show has settled into a post-reboot groove: introduce subject to the transformative power of self-love and a good moisturiser, group-hug, then rinse and repeat. It comes with an assuredness that is ever more enjoyable. Touchingly, they remain open about how hard-won their self-assuredness is.
