Shelagh Delaney: a video tribute

The Sheffield revival of A Taste of Honey should help us better remember an unfairly neglected playwright – but here's plenty of footage to be going on with

As a major of revival of Shelagh Delaney's A Taste of Honey opens in Sheffield, it's time to remember the debt owed to the playwright, who died last year, by many writers – even the songwriter Morrissey.

Reading this on mobile? Watch the video here

A major dictionary of theatre on my bookcase, dating from the mid-1990s, doesn't even mention the Salford-born Delaney, who can seen here in Ken Russell's 1960 Monitor film on the writer and her town.

The lack of recognition from the theatre world is probably partly because, after 1960, she largely turned her attention to screenplays, eventually writing the 1985 film Dance with a Stranger, in which Miranda Richardson played Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged for murder in England.

Knightley In Early Talks For Romeo Redux

Keira Knightley is said to be in very early discussions to star in "Rosaline" for Fox 2000 reports Vulture. Knightley is both the studio and producer Shawn Levy’s first choice to play the lead role of Rosaline.

The film is an adaptation of Rebecca Serle's upcoming first novel "When You Were Mine" which re-tells Shakespeare’s great tragedy "Romeo and Juliet" from the perspective of the normally unseen Rosaline, the celibate niece of Capulet and Romeo's first love. When Romeo sneaks into a Capulet gathering to find her towards the play's start, he spots Juliet instead and instantly falls in love with her.

Though frequently mentioned throughout the play, the character never actually appears and has only rarely been portrayed on film (and even then in tiny cameos). In many ways she's the quintessential plot device, without her Romeo wouldn't be at a Capulet party and thus wouldn't meet Juliet.

The millionaire actress owns a sheepskin coat from fashion house Burberry, which cost 2,795 pounds, but she could only go through with the purchase after being given the go-ahead by her mum Sharman MacDonald, who told her she had to wear the garment every day.

"My mum was like, 'You cannot spend that amount of money on a coat,' and I was like, 'No, you're right I can't, I can't'. And then literally it was months and months of thinking about it and thinking, 'I'm not going to do it, I'm not going to do it,' " she told Elle magazine. "But then she said, 'Right, if you're going to buy it, you have to wear it all the time.' I wore it every day last year and I'm going to wear it every day this year.

Movie Review: The Edge of Love (2009)

Sienna Miller and Keira Knightley in The Edge of Love

Photo: Capitol Films John Maybury has directing films for some time, but it wasn't until 2005's The Jacket starring Keira Knightley and Adrien Brody that he popped up on my radar. I didn't particularly like that film, but I'm not about to throw a guy under the bus after the first go 'round, especially when his follow-up stars Knightley, yet again, along with Sienna Miller, Cillian Murphy and Matthew Rhys. While I would say The Edge of Love is certainly a step up from The Jacket it never quite manages to get over the hump as the story seemed almost too big for only one two hour feature. This film could have been a three-hour epic and Maybury certainly shot it as one, but the fact it works on any level is due to a great cast that saves many

Film: Review: The Edge Of Love

While World War II raged across Europe, Dylan Thomas served the United Kingdom by writing scripts for propaganda films and reading his poems on the radio, though he struggled throughout with conflicting impulses. How could he support the war effort with positive messages, yet still satisfy a poet’s need to document pain and horror? In John Maybury’s period romance The Edge Of Love—written by noted British playwright Sharman Macdonald—all of London seems to be suffering a similar identity crisis. Rakish aesthetes are doing their part for the troops, while proper society types are behaving like bohemians ...

Keira Knightley Takes the Mic

  • IFC
Does Keira Knightley ever get to take a break? She's without question one of the industry's foremost young actresses, but since her 2002 breakthrough in "Bend It Like Beckham," she's also seemed hell-bent on proving herself the hardest working. In the past three years alone, she's appeared in two blockbusting installments of "Pirates of the Caribbean," snagged a Golden Globe nomination for her role in the lauded Ian McEwan adaptation "Atonement," strapped on a corset for "The Duchess" and shrugged out of one for "Silk." But she assures she's had her fair share of time off: "I am sort of chomping at the bit to get going. I got tired, and I wanted to be hungry for it again. And I am very hungry for it now and I can't wait to start."

Knightley's latest role is as Vera Phillips, the childhood flame that poet Dylan Thomas (played by Matthew Rhys
