Wes Anderson makes a film about a pair of kids living on an imaginary island who fall in love and run off together. Ed Norton, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel and (obviously) Bill Murray play supporting roles in the search to find them. There’s not a whole lot of new ground being broken by Anderson here but when your formula isn’t broken, why would you fix it? While Anderson haters will most likely continue to hate, his fans will find a lot to love.
In Cinemas from Friday
Painting Ladies: One Day Market (Saturday, The Chocolate Factory, 2-10pm)
Painting Ladies is a one-day market to raise funds for the Dublin-based women’s shelter Aoibhness. There will be dozens of stalls selling art, jewelry, cupcakes, furniture, photography and more, with an emphasis on urban culture made by women. There’ll be short films on show plus live music and DJ sets from the Basque Soul Band, DJ Mojo, Princess Swiela and Radio Na Life’s Niamh Ní Shuilleabhán. The market is also a good chance to scope out the Chocolate Factory, a new warehouse venue/cafe/hostel on Kings Inn Street which will be officially during the summer. It’s just around the corner from Cineworld on Parnell St.
Dublin Flea Market (Sunday, Newmarket Square, 11am-5pm)
Sunday morning, roll up. Sunny out. Sunglasses? Check. Tote bag? Check. Uncanny ability to root, find and haggle? Check. There is simply no better flea market in Dublin than the one that fills up Newmarket Square on the last Sunday of every month. With the Co-op warehouse spilling out on to the square, there’s great food and loads of stalls filled with records, clothes, jewelry and lots of random stuff. We’ve found few better ways to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon in Dublin, and the summer markets are the best of the lot. We’d tell you to get down early to get the best bargains, but then, you already know that.
