In the last week i have seen 2 stylish films. The Iron Lady, and The Artist.
The iron lady is good but strange film. I heard David Cameron say he wished that the film hadn't been released yet, and since seeing it i completely agree. The film concentrates on Margret Thatcher’s present life, an old women lost in the fast past world of London with a slowly deteriorating health and mental state. The film looks back at how her life planned out, the mistakes she made and how she would if had the chance possibly change things. It is a memoir and like David Cameron said, it is odd to have such a dedicated memoir about someone in their last days that is still alive.
However saying this, the film is good; and I’ve since wanted to find out more about Mrs Thatcher and what she did as prime minster. I don’t know a lot nor agree with what I do know, but I deeply admire her for what she achieved in a man’s world.
Style wise, it’s great. Maggie is well known for always wearing blue and the film was no different. A particular scene that I loved Margret Thatcher was stood in front of her wardrobe and inside was a sea of azure blue dresses, jackets, blouses and skirts. I was jealous. To put it bluntly blue is my favourite colour and I cannot wear it. With my olive skin too me it just never looks right.
i've picked through the shops and here is the best Iron Lady blue.
What can i say about the artist. it is truely a brillant film. i watched it sunday and had to travel 20 miles out of town to see it (we are obviously not cultured enough in my home town) i really recommend absolutely everyone to see, and see it on the big screen too. Some films are made for the big 1000 inch screen and it really adds to the atmospehre, waiting for the film to come out on dvd and watching it on the small screen just isn't going to give the film enough justice.
Since watching the film i'm having a little 1920's rivial and keep goggling images online, i espcially love the photograph's of groups of girls and dress pattern drawings.
my favourtite film for 1920's style is actual Changling staring Angelina Jolie. The film is based on a true story of a women that's child went missing. Month's later the police find who they believe is her son, but mother knows best and it isn't. suddenly she is living with this strange boy in her house that is claiming to be her son, she fights the police to find her true child that have now given up the search and evenutlly they send her to a mental hospital.
it's a very sad story, and a great watch i remcommend this too. Angelina as ever pulls off the 1920's single mother look with ease and i love watching her in it. strangely i think it is her hair that i am most in love with.
