Polestar 2 2020 UK review

  Polestar 2 2020 UK review Luxury electric hatchback loses its special suspension – and £5000 from its asking priceBoth variants get the same 78kWh battery and 292 miles of WLTP range and the same Valeo-Siemens electric motors – one for each axle, making more than 400bhp in total. Drivability is equally good. It’s all very easygoing, although push through initially quite hesitant throttle response and the 2 is uncomfortably quick. Floor it and this car would initially out-drag a BMW M4 or Porsche 911 Turbo S.

If there’s one thing to take away from that unsettling 2014 chocolate bar advert, it’s that Audrey Hepburn remains a figure of fascination for millions. Thirty years on from her death, her image is still iconic in the world of cinema and fashion, with the famous image from Breakfast At Tiffany’s adorning walls around the world.

Helen Coan’s new documentary about the life of the Oscar winner is deeply affectionate to its subject, weaving together archive footage and gorgeous photography along with the testimonies of friends, family, colleagues, and fans. Their love of Hepburn is palpable, but for those with the slightest interest in the star, it says nothing new.

7 Lessons Boris Johnson Didn't Learn From The First Lockdown

  7 Lessons Boris Johnson Didn't Learn From The First Lockdown Everyone makes mistakes – but the most important thing is to learn from them to avoid repeating them. But as England enters a second national lockdown, campaigners have heavily criticised the government for failing to learn from the errors it made during the first wave of the pandemic. Now scientists and public health experts have revealed some of the fatal flaws that are happening again – and they say lessons haven’t been learnt in the handling of the coronavirus crisis.Too slow to go into lockdown © PA A sign outside beau-k florists in Battle, East Sussex, ahead of a national lockdown for England from Thursday.

"Intermediate Documentary Filmmaking" is the sixteenth episode of the second season of Community. The episode originally aired on February 17, 2011 on NBC. In the episode, Pierce pretends to be dying after a drug overdose and takes psychological revenge on the rest of the study group for not taking

The film works through a straight-forward timeline of her life, from struggling in Nazi-occupied Holland to finding herself as a marquee name in Hollywood. Every peak is documented, along with behind the scenes titbits that are well-known to movie buffs, such as her fight to keep her famous Moon River scene in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. There’s nothing here that wouldn’t be gleaned from half an hour on Wikipedia, and there’s a frustrating absence of insight into the woman herself.

This may come from the mixed bag of interview subjects. The most valuable contributors are people like Peter Bogdanovich, her director on 1981’s They All Laughed, and her son Sean Hepburn Ferrer, who features prominently. Other than that, there are relatives like her granddaughter Emma Ferrer, who was born two years after she died; writers and biographers who didn’t know her; and family friends with the tenuous of connections (at one point her gardener’s son shares his memories). As the director of Tiffany & Co appears, you can almost hear a barrel being scraped.

Toyota GR Yaris 2020 UK review

  Toyota GR Yaris 2020 UK review All-paw Yaris might be the most exciting addition to the hot hatchback market in a decade. Wickedly purposeful, and wonderfully evocative of fast 4x4s of old.It also has a manual gearbox; nothing less than the most powerful three-cylinder engine in any production vehicle in the world; and the first proprietary four-wheel drive system that Toyota has developed for a road car in two decades, which can be set for a rear-biased torque distribution and augmented with proper ‘Torsen’ limited-slip differentials for both axles as you prefer. If that doesn’t excite you, folks? Well, I’m not sure any modern hot hatchback will.

The challenge this film faces is that most of her co-stars are dead. Even Richard Dreyfuss, who shared her last scenes in 1989’s Always, is in his seventies. All that’s left are younger relatives and fans, who are all sincere but offer little of interest. The points hammered home are that Hepburn was a remarkable actor, someone who revolutionised fashion, and who cared deeply for children. These are things everyone watching will know, and while documentaries don’t have to dig up dirt unnecessarily, the film quickly feels like a tribute montage.

The closest thing to a revelation comes from Hepburn herself, offering some personal perspective through the use of audio interviews from throughout her life. The absence of her father is felt deeply, and left long-lasting insecurities. It’s remarkable to hear one of the most beautiful human beings to have lived wishing she was shorter, blonde, and had a smaller nose. She also talks about the anxiety that came with stardom, and how her semi-retirement in 1967 was a “selfish act”, as she longed to care for her children. More than any after dinner anecdote about her career, it’s these moments that give a glimpse of a woman who felt very unloved in her life.

Audrey is an elegant, loving tribute to an icon of Hollywood. If you don’t know very much about her career, or her work as a UNICEF ambassador, it’s a user-friendly stroll through a remarkable life. It is, however, missing those little moments of disclosure that make you see a familiar face in a whole new light.

Audrey is available on demand from 30th November.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 4Matic L 2020 UK review .
German limousine does comfort exceptionally well, but more striking still is how adept it is dynamicallyWhat’s more impressive to me, though, is that if you flick the drive mode through to one of its more dynamic settings, the S gives very little comfort away but manages to grab control of its body movements, steer quickly but accurately, and perform in a way that no executive car usually does or strictly needs to, which gives it a serious advantage over any 4x4. The manoeuvrability offered by the rear steer is terrific, too.
