What Films to Watch

Posted 17.03.20  - Culture

As we retreat to our safe spaces, at home and with loved ones, we look for ways to keep our minds and imaginations stimulated, and make the most of this time in the confines of our surroundings.

At Turnbull, we’re taking this opportunity to indulge in some of our favourite films.
Swap the time you would spend on your commute, with the chance to truly unwind with a cinematic classic. Curl up in comforting cashmere and allow your imagination to wander through dazzling narratives. We’ve handpicked the films we’ll be reaching for first in the evenings and weekends that lay ahead.

The Darjeeling Limited, 2007, Wes Anderson

Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited follows three brothers on their journey across India, as an effort to reconnect following the death of their father. The film is an aesthetic whirlwind with vivid colours, rich textures and a score that brings the mood together with an ease that only Anderson can pull off.
Incidentally, the film provided the inspiration for our new nightwear capsule, which you’ll see evidence of in the whimsical colour palette as well as the character of the campaign.

Dr No, 1962, Terence Young

The first chapter of the iconic 007 series sees a devastatingly stylish Sean Connery playing British government agent James Bond, investigating the disappearance of fellow agents in the heart of Jamaica. A must see Classic, and an excellent excuse to start a Bond marathon which will see you through numerous weeks.

Le Mans ‘66, 2019, James Mangold

Based on the story of the battle between Ford and Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966, this 2019 film looks at the work of car designer Carroll Shelby, played by Matt Damon and retired race car driver, Ken Miles, played by Christian Bale. Set in the decade that continues to provide us with infinite inspiration, the wardrobe brings the story to life while, unsurprisingly, petrol-heads will be entertained too.

Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love, 2019, Nick Broomfield

Filmmaker Nick Broomfield offers an intimate look at the relationship between iconic poet and songwriter Leonard Cohen and his romance with his Norwegian muse Marianne Ihlen. The cinematic piece takes viewing into the vibrant and bohemian scene of the 1960s that the couple embodied, while offers a deeper look into the Canadian artist’s remarkable life.
