THE AFTERMATH (2019) Costume Design – Keira Knightley’s Beautiful Outfits…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of The Aftermath (2019)


Today’s post is a celebration of my favourite of Keira Knightley’s beautiful outfits in The Aftermath (2019). I just Love the clothes and the glorious way they’re lit and framed. A big hooray for costume designer Bojana Nikitovic!

This green jacket, white blouse, silver brooch look is my absolute favourite.

And once more with a hat.

I’m sure it’s not at all often that cardigans have looked this good. Am I right or am I right? That red line detail really makes it for me

I’ve always known that yellow and red were meant to be together. That beautiful hint of blue is also a very nice touch.

Silk / satin and that light. This one doesn’t show much but I know you know the yellow dress is stunning.

Classic and classy are the words for blue coat and white shirt – and who doesn’t want to be in a restaurant as well lit as this one right here.

Do you happen to have a favourite? It’s OK if your answer is ‘all of them’. That’s kind of my answer too.

306 HOLLYWOOD (2018): New Trailer For Documentary About Annette Ontell…

306 Hollywood is a new documentary about two siblings who undertake an archaeological excavation of their late grandmother’s house. And so begins a magical-realist journey in search of what life remains in the objects we leave behind.

306 Hollywood is directed and co-written by siblings Elan Bogarin and Jonathan Bogarin. Among other elements, 306 Hollywood features footage from the annual interviews the siblings conducted with their grandma before she passed…

I can’t ignore the definite creepy vibe this trailer conjures up, yet I’m into it. I mean, it is Halloween next month after all. I want to see more of the vintage fashion and hear what their sweet grandma had to say in the interviews.

306 Hollywood Release Dates: September 28th, 2018 (US)…

HAIL, CAESAR! (2015): The Thing I Liked…

Truth be told, Hail, Caesar! proved to be quite the bore. Regrettably I have to confess that I found the trailer  far more entertaining than the movie.

The trailer is funny, filled with the glamour, colours and seemingly odd characters of 1950s Hollywood; all good things. I liked the fact that it didn’t give much away in terms of where the story was going or even who the key protagonist might be and it moved at a good pace.

Unfortunately however,  a slow pace and inadequately intriguing story that never really goes anywhere are my biggest issues with Hail, Caesar! Part of the problem might be that there were too many stories trying to happen at the same time.

On the positive side, in addition to the humorous moments (the best of which you see in the trailer) what I do like aboutHail, Caesar!  is the makeup, glamour and colourful attire worn by the film’s main female characters; the characters played far too briefly by Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton and Veronica Osorio. Had it not been for this highlights, I’m not sure I’d have made it through to the end.

Overall, I think I’d have much preferred to see only the funny moments in the movie; something like the Saturday Night Live comedy sketch format. Basically a feature length version of the scenes such as the funny moments in the trailer. Outrageous suggestion, I’m sure but I really was hoping for more from a Coen brothers written  and directed movie. Needless to say, Hail, Caesar! is not my favourite film by the Coens. That title will probably always belong to the excellent No Country For Old Men (2007), a  movie I continue to recommend.

Happy Film Loving 🙂
