Dir: Francis Lawrence
USA/Germany , 2005
This is quite likely my favorite film from 2005. It gives me hope for art and style in film. The art direction and costuming are absolutely perfect. What a wonderful re-interpretation of characters that have been shown a million times over. I often get asked as I'm interested in fashion as well as film and worked in theatre whether I would ever do costuming and I always have said no. After seeing this film I can see why people would do it.
This film is included as part of The most influential films to me list.
