A Taxonomy of Hot Male British Actors

The HBAs of Cumberbatch Island

by Michael Baumann | The Ringer | March 24, 2022

This weekend marks the return of ‘Bridgerton,’ a series that celebrates society journalism—and lusting after Brits. To celebrate, here’s an exploration of the different types of attractive male British actors—from the prototypes to the ones currently ruling the screen and a select group of men who currently dominate Hollywood: Hot British Actors™ (HBAs).

The HBA is hardly a new phenomenon; it’s been part of the American cultural furniture since your grandparents were down bad (or whatever the postwar equivalent is) for Sean Connery and Richard Burton. But now these actors are everywhere—wielding affected American accents like a plumber wields a wrench. They’re hiding in plain sight, not just in our romantic dramas and superhero movies, but our network sitcoms and prime-time soaps as well.

Damian on Screen in Open Air Cinema Amid Roman Ruins

Queen of the Desert

by MCC Admin | The Courier | August 13, 2021

Algarve will have open air cinema (free) amid Roman ruins. The event runs over three weekends in August. There are films that are suitable for all ages and Queen of the Desert is one of those films chosen.

The Roman Ruins of Milreu in Estoi was chosen as the stage for the film cycle. The best thing about this place besides the Algarve heat is the fact that the cinema sessions are held amid Roman ruins. The initiative is called Cinema nas Ruínas and takes place every Saturday in August.

The Regional Directorate for Culture of the Algarve (DRCALg) states that the main aim of this cycle of films is “to give the public new experiences related to heritage and archeology”. The project is the result of a partnership between DRCAlg and Cinemalua, a cultural association founded in February 2020.

Saturday, August 21st, the film Queen of the Desert, starring Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Damian Lewis and Robert Pattinson was selected to air. The Werner Herzog’s film is an adaptation of a “biographical story” by Georgina Howell.

The sessions start at 9:30 p.m. and are free of charge. To register, all you have to do is send an email to milreu@nullcultalg.gov.pt with the film you want to see.
