The Rake - April_2016

Donald and Kiefer

Donald and Kiefer opposite one another in Forsaken, out earlier this year. Not the greatest of ideas on Hutton’s part. Kiefer spent the eighties running with the Brat Pack, aping his father’s leonine majesty with his backcombed coiffure in teen vampire movie The Lost Boys and saddling up alongside Emilio Estevez and Lou Diamond Phillips in the hormonal western Young Guns. He seemed to take both titles to heart: a whirlwind romance with Julia Roberts came to an abrupt halt three days before their scheduled nuptials in 1991, with Kiefer accused of an ill-timed liaison with a stripper named Amanda Rice. Numerous arrests for drink-driving followed, culminating in a 48-day jail spell in 2008 and a series of tattoos on his arms commemorating the dates of his D.U.I. busts. Thankfully, the role of Jack Bauer saved Kiefer from straightto-video flame-out and kept him in gainful high-octane employment through the 1990s and beyond. Kiefer was first offered the role by Stephen Hopkins, who was directing the show’s pilot episode. It’s fair to say that Sutherland wasn’t as gung-ho as Bauer would turn out to be: “I thought, ‘This is really clever and different, so there’s no way they’re going to pick it up. But I could use the money, and no one will ever see it.’” How wrong he was. Over eight seasons and 192 episodes — plus a T.V. film and a 12-episode coda — Jack Bauer raced to thwart numerous presidential assassination attempts, bioterrorism incidents, W.M.D. detonations, cyber attacks and innumerable instances of government and corporate corruption, while getting the big questions aired in the U.S. senate as well as around a plethora of watercoolers — questions such as, Are counter-terrorist operatives with a sanguine attitude to ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ and terrorists themselves virtually indistinguishable in their moral philosophy? Where did Jack learn to speak Serbian (season 1)? And how has his daughter, the disaster-prone Kim, managed to get herself kidnapped again (most seasons)? While Kiefer was getting medieval on various enemies within and without, his father was basking in his third marriage, to the French-Canadian actress Francine Racette, and also in eyecatching (if sometimes short-lived) supporting roles in the likes of A Time to Kill, Space Cowboys and Cold Mountain. “I’m at that point in life where I look at my part in a script and I’m always dying,” Donald said a few years ago. “I come in, I say, ‘Hi, how are you?’ And then I’m having a heart attack.” Perhaps those intimations of mortality, along with a burgeoning mutual respect, encouraged the eventual rapprochement between the Sutherlands. Certainly, Donald is now given to public demonstrations of stern paternal and grandpaternal pride (Kiefer’s daughter, Sarah, from his early marriage to actress Camelia Kath, plays the president’s daughter in the U.S. sitcom Veep), while Kiefer searched, for the best part of three decades, to find a suitable vehicle for the pair to appear in. “I watched On Golden Pond,” he says, “and I thought that the scenes between Henry and Jane Fonda were so pure and so perfectly done. Then a couple of years ago I looked up at my father around Christmas and thought to myself, ‘Wow. There really isn’t that much more time to do this.’ I’m getting older. My father is getting older.” Donald maintains that the key to the craft of acting is ‘investigation’, and, during the making of Forsaken, Kiefer was gratified to discover that they prepared for their scenes in the same way, covering notebook pages with scribbles and thoughts on their characters’ interior lives and motivations. He also found that they shared a penchant for reciting their dialogue aloud when they arrived on set, playing every angle and nuance, before the cameras rolled. Old mindsets die hard, however. “I don’t think I’ve ever been more scared of shooting a film in my life,” Kiefer told Men’s Journal last year. “I desperately did not want to let my father down, and I think he felt the same way.” Whatever else Forsaken does — revive interest in the western genre? Put the ten-gallon hat back at the heart of the fashion conversation? — it at least served, for Kiefer, to lay a few obdurate ghosts to rest. “A lot of fathers teach their sons to fish, or they work on a car together,” he said. “I got to make a movie with my dad. It was the coolest thing ever.” 31

RAKE COMMENDS We owe a debt of gratitude to the distinguished brands that create the most rakish products for us to write about. In this special edition, we consider everything you will need for a rejuvenating trip to Morocco. by tom chamberlin, charlie thomas & aleksandar cvetkovic Coughing your way through a metropolitan springtime takes its toll on the working man, and plants the seed that can set a path to adventure. The world is large and destinations plentiful, but if we at The Rake may be so bold, we should like to simplify matters. This Rake Commends will be a guide to an experience you will never forget, and a rundown of the paraphernalia required for such a trip. April and May should be spent in Morocco. The country at the top-left corner of Africa is full of wonders, and at this time of year enjoys a perfect temperature. But how do you make the most of it? Well, not by staying in Marrakech the entire time. Despite the 1960s jet-set movement associated with the city (the one fronted by Talitha Getty and Yves Saint Laurent), Morocco has some lesser-known spots worth exploring. While you might arrive in Marrakech, leave immediately and head west to the coast. Casablanca and Essaouira are lovely, but in between the two is a lesser-known seaside town called Oualidia. This will be the most luxurious part of the trip. Spend a few days at La Sultana, the best hotel in Morocco that boasts fine rooms with their own jacuzzi, or seguía, and a fantastic kitchen. Take in the views of the lagoon as well as the oysters for which this town is renowned. Book a table early at L’Araignée Gourmande for some of the best seafood, especially shellfish, in the world. Wake early enough and you might be able to see your dinner being caught. From Oualidia, bid farewell to the coast and head inland for something special, the town of Chefchaouen in the Rif mountains. Not only is this one of the most beautiful towns in the world, the entirety of which is washed in sky-blue, but it is a marvellous
