Stylish Films: Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day

I'm not sure if many people have heard of this film, but I first saw it about 2-3 years ago after hearing about it on Tumblr, during a weird period of binge watching films that were popular amongst the more "indie" and "artsy" crowd, which included films like Submarine, Lullaby for Pi, The Dreamers, Lolita (Kubrick's version), Atonement, every Wes Anderson and Sophia Coppola films, and a bunch of 60's french films where I was forced to read the English text at the bottom of the screen. Most of the ones I listed I remember what they were about, but a lot of them, I don't. Like I said, I was going through a weird phase of my life where I wanted to be "different", or something like that. I do recall watching Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day though, and man is it a fantastic movie (it's also based on a book!). Of course, one of the things about this film that stuck out to me most was the oh-so-amazing style!

This film is set in 1939 London, and Amy Adam's character Delysia Lafosse is an aspiring actress, which explains why she looks so fabulous throughout the film. But not only is her style perfect, but just the scenery throughout the film and the styles of the others is great as well. The sparkly hairpins and brooches, the fur stoles, and just everything else is simply beautiful. It's also such a cute and happy film, truly a great story and I can just watch it over and over again. If you haven't seen it, you must!
