Costumes from the Film ‘The Simian Line’
Arnita (Tyne Daly) with Mae (Samantha Mathis) and Edward (William Hurt).
The house was central to the story, literally and aesthetically. I used a strict pallette that was established by the decor of the house. This added a real sense of belonging to the characters.
I used a lot of original clothing for Mae (Samantha Mathis) and Edward (William Hurt). Note Mae’s original ’20s Egret feather spray.
