I'm a huge John Irving fan, and I thought this film adaptation of one of his best novels was pretty successful. Charlize Theron is, as usual, unbelievably gorgeous, and I really liked two of her sweaters in the film, both designed by knitwear designer Linda Daniels.
This warm cabled pullover - perfect for those blustery New England fall days :
In this 1967 classic with Faye Dunway and Warren Beatty, Faye is particularly stunning when she is wearing this gorgeous, intricate short-sleeved sweater featuring super-flattering waist-shaping:
Eunny Chang made a fabulous Bonnie-inspired sweater back in the day, but sadly there is no pattern available for it, as far as I know. KnitLit's version is even closer to the original. Love the three-quarter length sleeves. It looks like she adapted a Tahki Stacy Charles pattern but I wasn't able to locate it. Any ideas? In the meantime, Stella's Blouse, an Interweave Knits pattern published in Spring 2004, is awfully close.
This better-than-average Spielberg movie features Christian Bale as Jamie, a privileged 12-year-old boy in 1940s Shanghai, who struggles to survive when he finds himself separated from his parents as the Japanese invade China. At the beginning of the movie, there is a scene where Jamie tells his father that he thinks they are "Awfully lucky." This scene is ill-boding in light of what's to follow, but hey, check out the great cardigan that Jamie's dad is wearing!
