kate winslet. period drama. miniseries. SOLD! will need to see mildred pierce as soon as possible.
i watched the king’s speech this weekend and unsurprisingly loved every minute of it. colin firth is as good (great) as everyone says he is, geoffrey rush is always brilliant and helena bonham carter is flipping delightful. the set design & colour palette throughout the film is also quite mesmerizing - lionel logue’s office in particular. if this movie doesn’t win every single award it will (hopefully) get nominated for at the oscars, it’ll be a damn shame.
be sure to read my post about king george & elizabeth, i love them even more now after watching this.
whenever my friend and i watch a period drama the same discussion will always ensue. she’ll lament that we were born in the wrong era and talk about how happy we’d be if we could live in those times. i’ll try to convince her that we’d be bored out of our minds with just sewing and wandering around in gardens to keep us occupied. she’d rebut with the opinion that if sewing and garden wandering was all we ever knew we’d be content. i’d remind her that you’d have to be (a) rich or (b) married rich to actually enjoy worry free sewing and garden wandering. she’d say that being rich is a positive, not a negative. i’d remind her that we’d have to play lots of card games and that she hated them. she’d remind me i loved card games. and so it went on.
i secretly agreed with her though, living on a country estate in those days must have been pretty damn sweet. IF you were rich and got to picnic all day and other people made your meals for you.
on that note, did anyone watch the latest glee with gwyneth? i thought it very cringey. what happened glee!
