Patreon Post Unlocked: The Wings of the Dove (1997)


In our podcast, we declared The Wings of the Dove (1997) to be 99.9% perfect, and it still holds true. This adaption of the Henry James novel stars Helena Bonham Carter in a darker, more complicated role than her earlier frock flicks, with stunning costumes by Sandy Powell. Now, back when we podcasted it, we also released a video-slideshow that includes images of what we’re talking about — check it out here:

But we didn’t cover all the costumes, so it’s time to go in-depth and look at all the fantastic outfits in this film.

    If only I can reach through the screen and take some of those turbans and toques for myself.

    This is one of my all-time favourite movies, the other being the extended edition of the Lord of the Ring and other frock flicks. Besides the Goddess Sandy’s gorgeous clothes, the real star of it was Gustav Klimt’s paintings. SNORT ROTFI. I preferred Milly over Kate bc felt she was intrinsically kinder. Lord Mark’s county seat sorta resembles Blenheim in a few scenes. Did they film there?
