The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond

It seems I am fortunate enough to be able to counteract my horrible movie review with a positive one.

A couple days ago, my friend Alexia and I saw the film, "The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond," starring Bryce Dallas Howard.



This film is based on a recently discovered play by Tennessee Williams. It revolves around Memphis debutante Fisher Willow, the disliked daughter of a corrupt plantation owner in the 1920s. Free-spirited Fisher is desperately unhappy and unsatisfied with life. Out of love and her own social awkwardness, she hires a ruggedly handsome farmhand, Jimmy, to be her escort for the elaborate party season. All hell breaks loose when she discovers one of her priceless heirlooms is missing at a party.



If you have been reading my blog long enough, then you already know of my utter admiration for Bryce Dallas Howard. So, it should be no surprise to you that I declare her absolute perfection in this movie.

The natural red-head is stunning as the raven-haired, feisty society girl, Fisher. Had this film been made 50 or 60 years ago, a young 20-something-year-old Elizabeth Taylor would have been PERFECT in the role. But for our generation, Bryce is the next best thing. She gives Fisher such subtle depth, that you're shocked to discover that your wariness of Fisher in the beginning of the film turns to esteem and protectiveness by the end. You gradually realize that Fisher is the only character in the movie worthy of your affection.



Plus, the 1920s fashion in the film is amazing. I seriously wished I owned every dress, coat, and piece of glamorous jewelry Bryce wore during the film. It took my breath away.



The overall acting is also phenomenal. Chris Evans, who plays Jimmy, glosses over his eye-candy status by balancing the fine line between an honest hero and obnoxious douchebag.



An aspect of the film, which perplexed me, was that there are several loose ends in the storyline. Many things are brought up, which are never explained. A couple scenes in the film have nothing to do with anything. But I realized this was also the case of The Glass Menagerie, so therefore it is probably just Tennessee William's style. But I found these little unexplained fragments mostly just added to the mysterious atmosphere and also makes the viewer feel like they abruptly came into these people's lives and are in no place to question the past.

Here is a photo of Bryce from the premiere of "The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond."


(Doesn't Bryce look beautiful? I wasn't a big fan of the dress, so I cropped it, haha, but I think she looks absolutely FABULOUS with her cascading dark locks).

I definitely recommend this movie to everyone. Go out and rent it!
