RIP ROBIN WILLIAMS: O Captain, My Captain…

 

 

UPDATE: Sorry for anyone who popped into visit and the video stopped working – I’ve found a new version.

The best scene ever, from Dead Poet’s Society.

Prepared to cry again when you watch it. Sorry about the poor quality and the sudden ending, but do consider re-watching the whole film again.

I’m so very sorry about the passing of the great Robin Williams. My condolences to his family and friends.

A SENSUAL LIFE: “Fifty Shades of Grey” official trailer

 


FIFTY SHADES OF GREY – First official trailer: OK, so I refused to read the book because it didn’t sound like my thing. But the trailer looks kinda hot, no?

Take a look and leave a comment below. Did they get the cast right? Who would you have put in the roles? And will you see the movie?

LUSCIOUS AT THE MOVIES: The “other” Saint Laurent film trailer with Gaspard Ulliel as Yves Saint Laurent

 

 Sorry, no English subtitles!

 

It’s odd seeing this trailer, having recently watched the rival 2014 Yves Saint Laurent movie starring Pierre Niney and Guillaume Gallienne, as YSL and Pierre Berge respectively. Read more about it here.

This alternate film, called simply Saint Laurent, is due for release in September. It’s co-written and directed by Bertrand Bonello, and starring Gaspard Ulliel as Yves Saint Laurent, Jérémie Renier as Pierre Bergé and Louis Garrel as Jacques de Bascher. Read more about it here.

Are you so devoted to fashion that you will see both? I know it sounds a bit silly when they look identical, but I probably will!

MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: The soundtrack to The Book Thief by John Williams

 

 

 

THE BOOK THIEF: We’ve been playing this soundtrack a LOT at Chez Luscious – it’s simply divine. Thanks to John Williams for composing such a beautiful score.

Do make sure you read the book by Markus Zusak and see the film, directed by Brian Percival and starring Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, and Sophie Nélisse. It’s very touching.

Why not play this in the background as you scroll through the rest of the Luscious website?
