Me and Orson Welles

I saw the trailer to this the other day and I think it looks amazing! It's a film about a young teenager cast in the Mercury Theatre production of "Julius Ceasar" directed by a young Orson Welles in 1937.
Richard Samuels is played by Zac Efron, Sonja Jones is played by Claire Danes, and Orson Welles is played by Christian McKay.

The costumes look brilliant! I love Claire Danes outfits and all the guys look quite dashing in their wool coats. I love the 1930's. :)

I'm going to admit something, I used to totally mock Zac Efron...but I'm starting to really like him. He's an amazing young actor, sort of reminds me of a young Leonardo DiCaprio. I'm excited to see him in a period role outside of high school. I'm also a huge Claire Danes fan so I'm excited to see her in it!

Here is the brilliantly done trailer:


  1. ooo so glad you shared that! I hadn't heard of it yet. Looks wonderful though :)

  2. Yeah, when it comes to Zac Efron I am usually like "whatever" ;), but he actually looks really good in this. I love the 30s, too (fave era ever!) - if it gets some good reviews I'll try and see it!

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Amanda, haha I've totally been the same way! Then the other day I saw him in a movie that he acted really well and I was like, "Oh shoot...he's a good actor." haha I hadn't seem him in much before. I saw bits of High School Musical on tv once but that's pretty much it. Oh...and he was pretty hilarious in Hairspray.
    I used to do the same thing about Leonardo DiCaprio though and then it turned out I loved him too. I guess I shouldn't judge actors until they get a chance to be in a few different roles. ;)

  4. Great link - I hadn't heard about this one. I'm with you on Zac; it would be nice to see him play a real character like this one.

    Ta for sharing!

  5. oh that looks neat! I very much like-o the trailer! ...i want to watch every trailer ever! Just so into them..huh!

  6. I am very excited to see this movie! I also, have never liked Zac Efron and always made fun of I find myself rather liking him. :) And being that I just adore Claire Danes I really must see it.



Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
