Inspirations: On Film
I can’t get to all my trinkets let alone near my bombsite of a closet, so what better time to share some of my all time favourite films...
Harriet The Spy
This girl certainly has a lot to answer for. I grew up fascinated by this film, and will always see it as the film that inspired me to write and document my life. Be it a personal diary or all my best kept secrets locked away in a book in my attic. I even tried to make a replica notepad cover just like Harriet’s. I’m gutted I don’t have this on DVD, but will always be very fond of this tender story.
I love Edie Sedgwick and the legacy she left behind. This film really made me question Andy Warhol’s intentions and certainly opened my eyes to the sordid things that went on in that ‘factory’. I couldn’t have cast a more wonderful and beautiful individual than Sienna Miller. I loved her in this film.
The costumes, the sets, the cakes, the all round beauty that is this film. I really do not need to add anything else, it is all there.
The love story that I deeply wish I was part of. This is a tale of true love. My heart melted when I saw this film for the very first time. I just love the simplicity and the romance that is Noah and Allie.
Oh how I longed for that raptor t-shirt and the nautical jacket. I still get excited at the thoughts of delving into this blatantly upside down full of quirks and thrills film. Enid was once and partly still is my icon. We’ve all had that awkward time in our lives, mid teen angst and utter urge to rebel, Enid sums all of this up in such a creative and endearing way. Plus I just adore her artwork.
