Revisiting Green Card


[Click to enlarge. My screengrabs are from 1991s Green Card with production design by Wendy Stites.]

At the moment I'm gathering images for another Green Card post. Visually, the film's most memorable element is undoubtedly the apartment conservatory in the real life late-19th-century building designed by Henry Anderson. But there're other aspects worth studying. Representing the transition from the 1980s to the 1990s, the movie's set decoration embraces all things botanical, including floral prints. So the look and feel resonates again in 2013 (it's even got the braids and looser, wilder hair).

In the meantime, if you want to watch it start to finish, it's finally available to rent through iTunes.
