Ammonite, hands

Francis Lee and Kate Winslet did not need make up for the hands to look raw since Kate worked for weeks hunting for fossils in preparation for shooting. It’s in all her interviews.
Wonderful analysis, apart from this tiny detail.

Very well done

Like many others as of late I found out about the wonderful women of Seventh Row because of their ebook on Céline Sciamma. Since purchasing that book I have indulged myself in their thoughtful and insightful conversations about film and filmmakers via their podcast and their writings. I have REALLY enjoyed their Lockdown Film School series and urge others to listen to some really fine and enlightening conversations about film. I am also enjoying learning more about Canadian film and filmmakers.

My favorite film podcast

Orla and Alex are incredibly insightful and have great taste in film. I love how they actually let their guests talk and truly listen to them! Between this, the site, and all of the ebooks, you really can’t go wrong with Seventh Row.
