British Beauties

If you know me, it's no secret that I am head over heels for Sienna Miller. She embodies everything I love about British fashion and her childlike, playful persona transfers impeccably onscreen. It doesn't hurt that she played one of my other favorites, Edie Sedgwick, in Factory Girl, either! There is something so appealing about her that makes me want to watch every film she has ever been a part of and then some. Today, I satisfied my Sienna craving with, "The Edge of Love". Sienna, alongside Kiera Knightley swept me off my feet yet again. The film took place during WWII England and Wales, and I am overwhelmed with how timeless these ladies looked in every scene. The film was disturbing in many ways and also quite real. The bond between the two females was so strong, it made me yearn for female companionship. There is something so deeply moving about the bond two best friends can share, a relationship so complex and mysterious, I am tempted to say finding a friendship like theirs as depicted in the film is as difficult as finding your soul mate. I'm going off on tangents here and this may be a story for another day. The bottom line is I was completely inspired emotionally and stylistically by this film and the bond the two female leads shared.
