WHAT'S ON

Neville's Island
Duke Of York's Theatre
★★★✩✩

Rain pours down on a verdant inlet and the perfume of pines fills the auditorium. Stormy camps, reluctant kindling and a fragile grasp on fortitude.

FOOD

The Hackney Pearl, Prince Edward Road, Hackney Wick

★★★★★

Cool, calm and collected, this Hackney Wick eatery welcomes hipsters and non-hispster(?) to sit side-by-side on sort of old school (as in the educational establishment) chairs, among the chic lamps and arty books.

WHAT'S ON

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
(12A) 101mins
★★✩✩✩

WHAT'S ON

Effie Gray
(12A) 108mins
★★★★✩

If Effie Gray lacks the emotional release that the painstaking accumulation of frustrations appears to demand, it is perhaps testimony to the artistic courage of script writer Emma Thompson (who also stars).

The Sense Of Style
Steven Pinker (Allen Lane)
★★★✩✩

Steven Pinker is an dazzling thinker, an excellent writer and a brilliant matchmaker of the two - marrying complex ideas to simple English.

This has not happened by chance. He has studied hard to make his writing appear easy and now wishes to share his learning.
