On The Road

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

When we heard a film had been made of Jack Kerouac’s Beat classic On the Road we were sceptical and sure enough when Walter Salles premièred the film at Cannes recently it did receive mixed reviews.  However, the cast is stellar, including young talent alongside veteran actors, the eyewear a fantastic representation of the 1940s, and we loved Salles’ The Motorcycle Diaries!

Moonrise Kingdom

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

You may recall a few months ago we blogged about film director and specs wearer Wes Anderson.  His latest film Moonrise Kingdom is now playing in cinemas.  True to form Anderson yet again uses fantastic vintage eyewear to convey the feel of the period in which the film is set, in this case 1965.  An all star cast including Bill Murray, Bruce Willis, Frances McDormand and Jason Schwartzman feature throughout in classic glasses and sunglasses of the time.
