Leonardo di Caprio & Kate Winslet

Helen went last night to a special screening of one of the movies we worked on, Revolutionary Road, which officially opens January 15, 2009.

Director Sam Mendes and actors Leonardo Di Caprio, Kate Winslet, Kathy Bates, Michael Shannon, Zoe Kazan and David Harbour appeared afterward for a panel discussion. We started working on this film back in April of 2007 so it has been a long time in the making! In a past blog, we mentioned renting some clothes as recently as this past September for some re-shoots.

in order: David, Leo, Kate, Kathy, Zoe and Michael

Leonardo, Kate and Kathy sat next to each other….a kind of “Titanic” reunion. The retelling of the Richard Yates book is an emotionally grueling tale of what bubbles beneath the seemingly content blandness of 1950’s suburban life. Watch for Michael Shannon - a stage actor, he gives an Academy Award nomination-worthy performance in a breakout role!

Zoe Kazan plays the unusual role of innocent (or not so!) seductress, and we supplied her with a 1950's robe and a bra used just for that purpose! Interestingly, this recent Yale grad ( and granddaughter of famed director Elia Kazan) appeared in Come Back, Little Sheba and is now in The Seagull, both on Broadway ....and both productions we also worked on!

Cadillac Records, which seems to be getting a lot of press, opens this Friday on December 5. We are excited to see it!

In an amazing coincidence, the day Helen went to see our dress displayed in Bloomingdale’s window, who should just happen to be there at the exact same time of the day ALSO taking pictures? The film’s writer and director, Darnell Martin! Along with another crew member, she posing (on the right) pointing to our garment and credit on the glass window! We wish the movie great success!
