dusk, old perfume bottles, cotton sheets, dried rose petals, hand written love letters, old buildings on a street made of stone, ballet, copper, dark lipstick, melted wax candles, grand architecture, rivers that run through cities, women in silk dresses, ballrooms, doves, lavender, gold jewelry, french tipped nails, chandeliers, the women’s powder room, glasses of champagne, harps, long lashes, and lipstick stains on blushing cheeks

Hard hats, soft hearts: Eddie Redmayne and Birdsong co-star Joseph Mawle hear of and witness the horrors of the tunnels of the Somme while doing research in France for their roles as World War I soldiers for the 2012 BBC miniseries. Eddie’s research for his recent roles is legendary but obviously has long been a part of his preparation and authenticity.
moths, willow trees, grey cotton dresses, dusty windows, old books, creaky wooden floors, broken clocks, howling winds, cluttered attics, woolen socks, piano duets, chests full of lost things, wax candles, foggy mornings, miles of rolling hills, sudden rainstorms, aged photographs, windchimes, echoes, wooden railings with intricate details, wardrobes, dirty mirrors, drawers full of buttons, and forgotten love letters
Ok. Why is no one talking about Birdsong?
Or the horrible, broken way Eddie Redmayne delivers, “That’s why she left,” and then proceeds to full on break down, ugly sob, taking me down with him for the rest of the damn movie?
Like yeah, I love Newt, Newt is wonderful and adorable, and well played, but guys, Stephen Wraysford is where its at.
Also, if you haven’t seen The Danish Girl, please, watch it. It’s a beautiful film.
