This film is juicy. A thick story, beautiful beautiful scenery and gorgeous costumes (and lots of them).
The story is set in 1923-1925 China. It deals with the turbulent marriage of Walter (Edward Norton) and Kitty (Naomi Watts) with the back drop of a cholera epidemic and the beginnings of revolution.
It doesn't have a cheery bounce about it, but it is definitely quality. With love, history and beauty. Definitely worth checking out. If only for the extensive costume changes of Kitty (Naomi Watts).
My favourite costume is this one:
It only gets a minuscule moment of screentime, but it's so pretty! And so hard to get a shot of. It has lovely fragile flowing sleeves, baby blue fabric with a dainty floral pattern embroidered on.
Another attempt at catching the dress detail:
Definitely worth it.
