    Hi, love your costuming! I had a question; what is the title/artist of the painting you have in the upper right corner of your website? It’s of a 17th century woman in a blue and gold gown with a little spaniel in front of her. I love it, and I’m trying to find it with no luck. Thanks!

    Please keep doing what you are doing. We are depending on you for early warnings about costume dramas, the BBC and dramas all together. Thanks so much for being here.

    One I didn’t see on your list that I just saw was playing at my local art house theater is Mozart’s Sister.

    I don’t know how good the costumes are, the teaser isn’t too promising, but I’m intrigued enough to probably go see it.!

    P.S. Did you say Clive Owen as Hemmingway?! I am SO there. ;)

    Thanks for the heads-up on some of these. I’m always looking for costume flicks to add to my Netflix queue. Some of them look like they could be fun (yay for a 2nd season of Downton Abbey!), but I have to admit that I’m stuck on the image of Vanessa Redgrave playing Elizabeth I. What were they thinking? Judi Dench – yes. Cate Blanchett – yes. Helen Mirren – yes. And of course, Glenda Jackson. But Redgrave? Maybe it’s just me, but I happen to think Elizabeth is one of the most fascinating characters in history, and mis-castings make me twitch.

    OK, rant over. Really. :-)

    The Invention of Hugo Cabret is great – it isn’t about a robot though. It’s an automaton, which I guess is as close to a robot as they had in the 1930s. More of a toy, though. Should be a very cool movie, as the novel it’s based on is beautiful and the illustrations are simply stunning!
