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!

Brighton Rock – 60s Style

Friday, February 4th, 2011

If you go to see Brighton Rock this weekend be sure to look out for fantastic 1950s and 60s style frames.  Both the book and original 1947 film were set in the 1930s but this version,  directed by Rowan Joffe and starring Sam Riley, Andrea Riseborough, Helen Mirren and John Hurt, is set in 1960s Brighton.
