I happened to watch two movies whilst answering this brief, which both explored ideas of class and culture. The Great Gatsby is a classic story of wealth and glamour, change, appearance and acceptance. Baz Luhrmann’s interpretation of the story is cinematically beautiful, with a lot of diamonds and colour. The characters in the story are clear embodiments of styles and class an the film explores the world of the flapper culture in the 1920’s
I also studied the lifestyle of the characters in Les Miserables, particularly those in poverty, their clothing and appearance.
