The Beautiful Life

This past weekend we watched I Am Love, starring Tilda Swinton. The film's subtle and slow-moving story, while enjoyable, is really secondary to its beauty. From the setting (which travels from a snow-covered villa in Milan to the blooming hills above Sanremo), to the music by John Adams; from the characters' wardrobes (courtesy of Fendi and Jil Sander's Raf Simons), down to the opening credits, it's easily the most aesthetically inspiring and transporting film I've seen since A Single Man. Highly recommended for a rainy afternoon.
