Antoni & Alison

‘“The Rebel” is our favourite film of all time. That romantic notion to be a modern artist. And Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”: tempestuous, meaty, method acting, slice-of-life boozy romance. You just want to shout and scream and get really, really drunk.’
