Julianne Moore (pictured with Hays Wellford) on the set of her new film “Wonderstruck” at Flushing Meadow Park in New York City.
When a middle-aged ladystar decides to play a grandma type, you know she’s gunning for an Oscar. Or that she has no other roles to choose from. And while the latter is probably more likely in most cases, we’d say Julianne is enjoying sinking her teeth into this one, based solely on the costuming alone.
That is not, however, the greatest old age makeup in the world. Maybe it’ll look better on film.
We couldn’t figure out how this costume related to this costume, but some Wikipedia and IMDB sleuthing indicates that she’s playing two different characters at two different time periods (which is another way to get a ladystar to play a grandma – promise her she can play someone younger in the same film). If these shots are set in the ’70s, as our sleuthing indicates, then we have to contest this costuming just a bit. This is not how grandmas in the seventies dressed. This is closer to how they dress in 2016. In fact, this is how a Baby Boomer dresses in her advanced age; not how someone born circa 1910 would.
Sounds like an interesting, if slightly precious story. Has anyone read the book?
