A Fortunate Event

My little one and I have just watched a DVD we haven't seen for ages. 
It's a real treat...





A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snickets. I loved these books 
and I really love this movie... have you seen it? 








The actors are fabulous (Jim Carey, Meryl Streep, Billy Connolly etc) but the 
children really do steal the show for me, particularly Emily Browning's 'Violet'.
Best of all, though, are the costumes...





If you haven't seen this movie, I totally recommend it. Here's a taster...



Perfect for a slow sick-on-the-sofa kind of day :)

I love that film too. Really beautiful. I am 99% certain that a slightly batty woman I used to occasionally work for, (but who was two of my closest friends boss) called Suzanna made the girls costumes for this film.
Always thought it was a shame they didn't make more of the series.

Eva love this!! Has only listened to the audio book tho. We'll be looking out for the DVD now - Jim Carrey looks brilliant in it!x

We're on Book Four. Last weekend, because we'd finished Book Three, we did the movie. It's due back tomorrow - but not before a final screening. With popcorn.

I loved the costumes as well. Almost steampunk but not.

Fabulous! I watched it not so long ago :) I don't get around to blogging much at the moment… But think of you creating away over there all the time. Sigh :)
