- I love all of Mary Steenburgen's outfits in Return to the Future III,
especially the tuck-fronted dress she wears to the dance and the gorgeous
purple suit at the end.
Having just seen "Curse of the Golden Flower" on Tuesday, however, I think I
have a new favorite costume movie. Wow! It is the most beautiful soap opera
I've ever seen. The costumes, the sets, everything is fabulous. They must
have used the entire Chinese army as extras. Didn't like the ending, but
you can't have everything.
