Luna Palace Cinema Privilege Card was on my list of Things to Do on returning to Perth. I bought one online, and then booked tickets to the opening night event for Iris. As Iris’ textural and brightly coloured attire reminds me of the conglomerations my mother wears we invited Mum too. It was an interesting biopic piece, with an expected range of visually pleasing shots. The narrative lulled and I hoped it was wrapping up but then it kept going. I’m not sure whether the makers intended a particular take-home message but this is what we took home:
- Looks fade but style keeps you looking good.
- When you’re old and wrinkly people will effusively gush at how remarkable you are just for being yourself, as if your mere existence is inspiring because you might otherwise be permanently horizontal.
