Welcome to FrockTalk, the web’s only costume-based movie review site. The goal of Frocktalk is to shed light on the magnificent artistry of costume design in motion pictures. Reviews on this site are written by working costume designers in the entertainment industry – people who know, better than anyone, what it takes to make it all happen. The focus of FrockTalk is not to comment on the big flashy costume dramas, but to call attention to the seemingly ordinary costume design work in film that silently and persuasively moves the audience toward understanding the characters. Costume design for motion pictures is an art form that deserves more recognition than it usually gets. Fancy, pretty costumes do not always equal effective, appropriate costumes. The art of the costume is in letting the audience know who the character is, before the actor even has a chance to open his mouth. Read on, and enjoy. ** CAUTION: ALL REVIEWS CONTAIN SPOILERS! **

Jenny Beavan: In Her Own Words

Still finishing up all the interviews from awards season – this time Frocktalk reporters Anthony and Sarah caught up with costume designer Jenny Beavan on the red carpet!  Jenny has a long resume of beautiful work, including an Oscar for Room With a View, and she was nominated for a 2009/10 Costume Designers Guild Award for Sherlock Holmes.  Jenny offers some great insight, not only about the film, but also about life as a costume designer.  Pretty good stuff.  Enjoy!
