Girl with a Pearl Earring (2003) short review


Fabulous adaptation of a fabulous book.  The costuming is just gorgeous, spanning everything from servant’s wear to upper class clothing.  Fabulous cartridge pleats on the backs of the sleeve heads.  Keep an eye on Mrs. Vermeer for some gorgeous upper class clothing and on Griet for well done servant wear.
