Winning several awards throughout its existence, we were, with reason, devastated when it was finally over. So, to make things clear and inspiring our days away, we made a curated selection of the movies to watch if you still miss that beautiful world of Mad Men. So, today’s Inside The Screen is all about your weekend plans!
The Oscar nominee is Saoirse Ronan is Eilis, an Irish immigrant that finds herself in the sea of the 1950’s Brooklyn. An outstanding ovation to the actress because she’s outstanding. We came for the frothy, pastel colours and stayed for the emotional captivating love story.
Down With Love.
It’s NYC, can you ask for more? Well, sure you can! Presented in the early 60’s, the movie that gives us Renée Zellweger and Ewan McGregor on the leading parts. The stunning costume set design, and the Mad Men style, with a fluffier side anyway, is present throughout the whole movie!
Catch Me If You Can.
Leonardo Dicaprio surely made the world swoon when he presented the world in the role of a Pan Am pilot. it’s so fabulously ’60s we couldn’t help but get it on our list. Our favourite part? The glamorous way of living of the air travel. Especially the stewardess and pilot costumes that looked all chic and stylish, not to mention the travel bags that left us languishing over!
Let’s be honest: who didn’t love The Help? The book based moviethat captured the attention of the world, this movie is the one you’ll probably have watched for a million times ain’t we right? With stunning production, the costume design is to die for and to get you inspired to redo your own wardrobe!
A Single Man.
Directed by the fashion designer, Tom Ford, A Single Man is a prime example of how Colin Firth was the prime choice for the role. Filmed in Glendale in a mid-century modern house built by the architect John Lautner in 1949, this is the one you’ll definitely cry and see how the Mad Men set design team has all the cards on hand!
Beyond The Sea.
Even though Kevin Spacey is in the spotlight for the wrong reasons nowadays, you can’t deny that the desperation, braggadocio and magnetism of the lead character, Darin, is captured perfectly. The perfect representation of the 60’s era for a Saturday evening don’t you think?
Beyoncé, Beyoncé, Beyoncé. The queen, the one who has the world in the palm of her hands made a musical! Amazing as ever, this powerful musical is filled with stars like no other. With a cast t0 dream of – pun intended – stars like Jenniffer Hudson, Eddie Murphy and once again, Beyoncé, this will be the one to get you inspired by!
Across The Universe.
Jim Sturgess. That’s all we need to say. Just kidding, this movie is slightly different but is the one to capture some of the essences of the real 60’s era. From the Beatle Mania to Vietnam War, this is the one you’ll want to cuddle up on your couch and cry about. Bonus: our favourite scene was the dancing/bowling one with the song “I’ve Just Seen a Face”! What was yours?
