The Age of Innocence:Vintage Movie Discussion

Posted 22 May 2011 by

Yes, we are calling 1993 “vintage”. It’s based on the shoe scale, if you would purchase a pair of shoes from this year and call them ” vintage”, then we can use it for a movie from the same year.

From The History Chicks Dictionary: Vintage-  Completely subjective word to describe anything that is too old to be new, but a real prize for someone. Maybe not you. Maybe not us.  But someone will love it!

The discussion: The Age of Innocence, 1993 ,directed by Martin Scorsese starring Daniel Day Lewis, Michelle Pfeiffer and Winona Ryder is based on the Pulitzer prize winning novel by Edith Wharton. Since we are mid- Gilded Age series, what a great time to talk about this movie!

Topic for this discussion

…and a few choice words about this….
And finally we talk about what happened here…good or bad? Wise or foolish?

Of course there is more, and yes, the conversation is historically based- not just a review of an older, er, vintage flick by two vintage chicks.
