Habitually Chic Movie of the Week: Cheri

by habituallychic

06 . 25 . 09

If it turns out to be sunny this weekend, I will be baking myself to a golden glow in order to build up my tan again. But just in case it rains for the 30th day in a row, my alternate plan is to see Cheri at the Paris Theatre. I have a weakness for period pieces and one set in 1920’s Paris is right up my alley. It reminds me of a more modern version of Dangerous Liasons probably because it also stars Michelle Pfieffer and shares the same director, Stephen Frears. He previously directed, The Queen and Mrs. Henderson Presents, two of my favorite films. Cheri seems to be getting mixed reviews but sometimes beautiful interiors and great clothes trump all. Kind of like real life! Bon Weekend!

    LOL about raining for the 30th day in a row! I agree about Cheri..Beautiful interiors and great cloths..How can you resist period movies? I admit that I’m a sucker every time. Enjoy.

    I must agree with you.. I viewed the still images from the movie and OMG the interiors are divine! And Kathy Bates! Who can miss a movie with her in it anyway?

    The book is marvelous (anything by colette is really -so modern and must have been so SHOCKING at the time!).
    I’m so excited about this movie, have been looking forward to it for months now. I plan on seeing it next week with your new friend Scott (Domicidal maniac!).

    I’m a freak over period films. This one looks fab!!! Thanks for tip. I’m so out of the loop on the movie scene.

    Hope you see sun soon so you can get that glow you so desire.
