Everything is Illuminated

I watched this movie over the weekend and was thoroughly charmed by it. I'm glad I finally got a chance to see it, it's been on my "to-watch" list for much too long now. It's such an enchanting movie, full of wit and humor.



Directed by Liev Scheiber and starring Elijah Wood, Everything is Illuminated is about a young man who goes to the Ukraine in search for a woman who helped save his grandfather in WW2. Along the way he's escorted by a "deranged seeing eye" dog, a man who tells everyone he's blind and his grandson whose fascination with American pop culture brands him as the lunatic of Odessa.

The movie itself was adorable, and so as a little tribute I thought I would make an outfit inspired by the main character himself, Jonathan Safron Froer.

I haven't gotten a chance to read the book either! (Unfortunately, with the costs of books nowadays, I don't get a chance to read much at all!)

Thank you so much for the comments, and Kim I'd love to add you to mine. :)

I'm in love with Elijah Wood for couple years! I love his play in 'The lord of the ring' . Everything is Illuminated I haven't seen yet! But my Sister said it is a great movie!

He is a good actor and cute too!

@sharon : Oh I adore those shoes too! I really adore the Jeffrey Campbell ones, but in gold!

@alice : really?! I adore adore Elijah Wood! And coincidentally from the same movie too. His acting brought such frailty and inner strength to the character in LotR.

@diana : I absolutely am in love with his eyes. :) The glasses in the movie just enhances them, which is a bit creepy but ever-charming.
