I posted before that I have always been a big soundtrack person, which probably stems from the fact that I am a big movie person. You know how some ppl leave daytime television on all day? I play movies and if they are on DVD I then play the movie with the commentary on, then I play all of the special features.
Well, I have found in my late 20′s that I am really a fan of Nancy Meyers. I have gotten to the point that I can turn a movie on and know that its Nancy Meyers just by the styling, the look, the music, the subject matter. I turned on the remake of The Parent Trap this morning, it had already started, and one of the twins was about to pierce the others ears at summer camp. After a few minutes I said to myself “Why does this sound seem like a Nancy Meyers film?” Not thinking she would do a children’s film. IMDBd it and sure enough – Nancy Meyers.
The story lines are more the lighthearted romantic which isnt usually my main dig. But for some reason I like hers. Her set design is impeccable and unmistakably her. The film scores are light and I could just let them play all day.
It’s Complicated- here are some images of her set designs from It’s Complicated.
The Holiday. Here are some images of set designs from The Holiday. There are two main locations here , a California home and a British country cottage.
