Bright Star, Big Meadow


I have not seen Bright Star yet, but this photo from it recalls the mood of my favorite opening scene in a film: the beginning of Howards End, when Mrs. Wilcox is wading through the damp meadow-y grass in her lavender silk gown. Of course this meadow is sunny and dry, but, you know--details!

Fabulous cinematography and mise-en-scene!

I love all of the Merchant Ivory films...so lush. A Room with a View is my favorite.

I'm interested in seeing this movie too, but I'm patient enough to wait until it comes out on DVD. That is, unless you see it and rave about it. :)

I like costume dramas only for the wardrobe and the cinematography... I usually find the plots predictable and boring. However, I cannot resist a good cry along with some fabulous clothes, so I will definitely be seeing this movie.... soon.
