There are few times I find my self as giddy as a kid in a candy store, but I stumbled across another great little flick that has given me oodles (yes, you read that correct, oodles!) of inspiration whilst I write my current dark Victorian erotic suspense.
The film--a remake of the classic Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.
The costuming and set design alone are absolutely wonderful! And the story, as retold in this particular version, illuminates this talents of its exceptional cast exceedingly well! A highlight of the movie is a scene shot at the famed Circle of Lebanon at Highgate cemetary. (*okay, I admit to haveing an unusual fascination with cemetaries and Highgate is one of my top ten that I dream of visiting one day)
Then, if you'd like a brilliant visual and prefer your Victorian toasted dark, then I highly recommend this latest version of Dorian Gray !
As for me...its back to my writing...
Until next time~
