2 thoughts on “TBT: The Bostonians (1984)

  1. Never seen this movie nor heard of the novel nor of the term “Boston marriage.” Vanessa Redgrave is always excellent, and Christopher Reeve should be more widely known for his non-Superman roles. I really want to see this film, now. Also, my favorite costumes pictured here are the reversible print dress and the one below it on the beach, both worn by Vanessa Redgrave. Great post!

  2. I saw the Bs when the movie first came out, and remember thinking that the production values were pretty wonderful, but that the pacing was slow, and the whole thing kind of affectless. By the way, Jessica Tandy and Linda Hunt have supporting roles–the latter as a doctor. It’s probably worth seeing just for the performances and costumes.

Feel the love
