There will be no getting around the insufferable Eddie Redmayne and his inevitable campaign this year for back-to-back Oscar wins, but all that aside, I'm really looking forward to this film. It's a topical and important discussion for our times, and the role is certainly a plum one and so I won't begrudge him the win, if it is deserved.
But, let's forget the Oscar mess for a minute and talk about the poster! This is stunning! Obvious Persona comparisons here, but I love the vintage photograph feel and the way that this is framed, almost like the passing of secrets between these two women. The look on Redmayne's face, almost of cautious wonder, contrasted with the sultry 'knowing' in Vikander's eyes is so sharply relevant to the struggle for Redmayne's character to become 'herself'. The soft focus, the sepia tones, the EVERYTHING!!!
That's what I think...what do you think?
