Down With Love

It's official: with the summer approching, I'm desperately waiting for the new season of Mad Men. I can't wait a minute more! I must know what will happen, without saying this season will probably mark a turning point in fashion too, as we're going to the Mod years and the perfection of American Dream is rapidly fading away...

So, yesterday I spent the afternoon rewatching some retro movies I had not watched for a while. And one of them was Down With Love, definitely not a perfect film, but a fun comedy (and costumes and sets are pretty fun as well!), a mix of tribute/parody of the '60s movies with Rock Hudson and Doris Day, like Pillow Talk.

The story begins when Barbara Novack (Renée Zellweger) come to New York City (the 1962 New York City...) to present her book, Down With Love, in which she declares women too are free to live, focus on career and play with sex as a man would do.
As the book become a sensation, ruining men's lives, Catcher Block (Ewan McGregor), a charming magazine writer and notorious ladies' man is determined to destroy Novack reputation of role model, proving she can fall in love as any other woman, so it goes undercover and act like a perfect gentleman in order to seduce her...

If you haven't watched it yet, after seeing the screenshots below (click to enlarge them!) I bet you'll want to!
