Friday Flicks // We'll Take Manhattan


Hey Sweets,

Another week down, another fabulous film suggestion for you all. Available on BBC I-Player right now is 'We'll Take Manhattan' - the wonderful story of the love affair between David Bailey and Jean Shrimpton, alongside their 'take over' of British Vogue with Bailey's revolutionary photography and Shrimpton's 'refreshing' beauty that catapulted her as the world's first 'super model' and true 1960s icon.

Karen Gillan is utterly charming as Shrimpton, all doe-eyed innocence and ever so slightly awkward, and sneaky crushes definitely developped for Aneurin Barnard as Bailey. Such an excellent supporting cast of familiar faces - truly a lovely film, not to be missed!

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Much love,
R&L xx
