Academy Screening #2: Barney's Version

Make-up: Barney's Version

Will it win? Mmm probably not.

Should it have been nominated? Sure.

I started writing about this film and decided I have nothing interesting to say about it. Judging by the photo above, though, the make up artists did a great job on Rosamund Pike particularly. The film spans four decades of the characters' lives, so their appearances and ages play heavily into the story, which sometimes weaves two or three forward moving storylines together in a fluid way. Most of the time the make-up was noticeable artifice, much like the film's plot, so it made sense even when it was over-the-top. Hers was subtler, though, which made her character much more believable.

Up Next: Who knows?!
