An Education

Sony Pictures's new film, An Education, opened last week to some mixed reviews. Everyone seems to agree about the impressive performance given by newcomer Carey Mulligan - she was very good, matching and surpassing performances in a few scenes with some very seasoned co-stars (Alfred Molina, Emma Thompson...) However, I've yet to see anyone discuss the clothing. The film takes place in post-war 1960's Britain, an amazing time for fashion. Costume Designer Odile Dicks-Mireaux (The Constant Gardener,Dirty Pretty Things) does a wonderful job reminding us of the power of using wardrobe in story-telling. Watch main character Jenny's transistion from schoolgirl to the very brink of sophisticated mod. Check out Rosamund Pike's character, Helen, having a Belle du Jour/Catherine Deneuve moment and Jenny's very painterly floral sheath for a trip to Paris...

Georgian Spring accompanies a major exhibition, to be first shown at Uferhallen, Berlin, in September 2009, and Teatro Circo Price, Madrid, in October 2009.

The screening at the launch highlighted each photographer's journey, including Alec Soth's quest to find a photograph the most beautiful woman in Georgia. The book looks amazing and features gorgeous new work by Mark Power - they were taking pre-orders last night.
