Juliette Binoche, Ralph Fiennes and Kristin Scott Thomas attends “The English Patient” 20th Anniversary during the 2016 Rome Film Festival at Auditorium Parco Della Musica in Rome, Italy.
We have a confession to make. We’ve never seen The English Patient. Is that terrible? Should we be embarrassed? Should we drop everything and watch it immediately?
Because we’ve never seen it, we don’t really have a reaction to the news that it’s 20 years old. Since we have no emotional touchstone to the film, we’ll judge the red carpetry instead.
This is all rather charming. It took us a minute to come around to each lady’s ensemble, but we like Juliet’s suit and Kristin’s dress. Strangely enough, we think each outfit would be improved if the ladies switched shoes. Juliet’s suit calls for a heavy shoe to anchor it and Kristin’s dress needs a lighter shoe to finish it off. Ralph is sui generis. The penchant for extravagant scarvery would come off so cliched and pretentious on so many other wearers, but it suits him so well and he does such a good job of wearing it, that it comes off charming in his case.
