Here is a poster the once again proves that not all characters on a white background posters are created equal.
I like the way the characters are positioned and the way they interact. And I think the lighting, hair, make-up and wardrobe give the poster a very classic and dignified look. But what I really appreciate in the poster is how the woman (Fiona, played by Julie Christie) is disappearing, a subtle reference to the fact that the character suffers from Alzheimer’s.
This movie is the first directorial effort from actress Sarah Polley, and it is about how the two main characters depicted in the poster deal with Fiona losing her memory due to Alzheimer’s. I haven’t seen the film, but this seems to me like a poster that really complements the movie and informs us about it’s tone. Very good.
