Movies don't get much better than this one.
Hanging out at the FSU Film School, we learned that movies have a "color palette", a chosen color scheme that permeates the entire film. In this film, that color is Peacock Blue, my wife's favorite color. It was actually entertaining to see that color pop up again and again.
Hawkins got an Oscar nomination for Best SUPPORTING Actress??!!?? Are you kidding me? Is that because, as a mute, she didn't have enough lines? Somebody needs to be wacked upside the head for that decision. There has never been a charactoer more lead than Eliza!
This movie is a work of art, pure and simple, right down to the smallest detail. My wife couldn't really get into the "love story" because, let's face it, it's a fish-man. But the film is so spectacularly beautiful to watch from opening frame to closing credit, it's mesmerizing.
