The weather here in Los Angeles lately has been so amazingly beautiful, I feel like this new video by Todd Cole for Rodarte does a great job capturing the feeling of what it’s been like. Titled The Curve of Forgotten Things, the short film features Elle Fanning, the younger sister of Dakota Fanning, and in my opinion, a huge up-and-coming actress who will be making waves in the very near future. You may have seen her in Somewhere, Sofia Coppola’s most recent and you’ll be seeing her in Super 8 over the summer, J.J. Abrams next directorial endeavor.
Director Todd Cole has Elle Fanning traipsing around the hills of Baldwin Hills, which is about 20 to 30 minutes south of Beverly Hills. I like that the film is really simple and does a great job of making the beautiful dresses by Rodarte shine. If you’re not familiar with Rodarte they’re a pair of sisters, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, who’s work you might have seen in Darren Aranofsky’s Black Swan. Rounding out this immensely talented group is the band Deerhunter, who made the music for the short. A ton of talented people coming together to make something beautiful.
