Jamie Dornan and Caitriona Balfe at the “Belfast” Los Angeles Premiere

Posted on November 09, 2021

We know this is a rhetorical well we return to probably a little too often, but sometimes it really is best to just transcribe one or both of our initial reactions to some pictures because we’re never going to come up with any verbiage truer or more accurate than what flies out of our mouths upon first viewing them. That was a very long and wordy sentence, serving as a preamble to what Tom said at our morning editorial meeting when Lorenzo showed him the shots of Jamie Dornan and Caitriona Balfe at the LA premiere of Belfast.



“Goddamn, those are some pretty Irish people.” We mentioned this once before, but we can’t decide if it’s charming that Kenneth Branagh chose such gorgeous people to play his parents or perhaps a little hilariously self-serving, in an “I am clearly the product of Celtic Gods” sort of way.

Anyway, we would not have recommended they both show up in such dark ensembles, but we suppose it plays into that sense of seriousness that tends to surround prestige films with awards buzz. We like the dress, but once again we are compelled to point out our dislike of this trend for embellished skirt slits. We can’t say her boots actually work from either a proportional or accessorizing perspective (they just don’t go with the style of dress), but we do love that she chose them. She has a fondness for really harsh lip colors, though.

He is dreamy and subsequently his turtleneck doesn’t bug.
