She’s the girl next door, the goddess, the sexpot, whatever you want her to be, she can do it all. Today we celebrate Minnie Driver’s historical costume flicks!
So young! This was one of Minnie Driver’s earliest screen roles.
Mr. Wroe’s Virgins (1993) – Leah
This is one of those shows I spent far longer than I should have trying to track down online. The only clips available are on porn sites, though.
My first exposure to Minnie Driver. It’s a fantastic movie, but it’s definitely one of those “this is supposed to be period?” films where everything looks suspiciously contemporary with the era the film was made in. It’s supposed to be set in the ’50s.
Big Night (1996) – Phyllis
The bombshell girlfriend of Stanley Tucci’s character, Minnie looks highly edible, don’t you think?
I still have no idea what this film is really about, because every time I’ve watched it I’ve gotten lost in the wacky costuming. At least Minnie is stunning no matter what she’s wearing.
I. LOVE. THIS. FILM. There are so many reasons why, but honestly, it’s Minnie Driver’s range of “bitch please” expressions that really are the icing on the cake.
The Phantom of the Opera (2004) – La Carlotta
There are so many amazing costumes worn by La Carlotta, but this one takes the, er, cake.
The Red Tent (2014) – Leah
Haven’t gotten around to watching this, but it looks visually gorgeous. I’m not usually one for biblical stories, but I’ll watch Minnie Driver in just about anything.
