Mary Marie is the last "coup de coeur" I had !
If you love cinema like I do and have a passion for vintage fashion,
it is probably the movie you are waiting for.

Alexandra Roxo and Alana Kearns-Green incarnate feminity and sensitivity.
The aesthetic of the photography, the vintage fashion and the incredible light covering the two actresses open the door to the nostalgic summer of Mary and Marie.

I fell in love with the TRAILER

I HAD THE CHANCE TO INTERVIEW ALEXANDRA ROXO

Where do you usually find your inspiration ?
I get very inspired by fashion photography. Lula Magazine is one of my favorites. I love their editorial shoots.

Mary, Marie, two very similar names for two sisters .... why ?
That question is revealed in the film....so I can't say much about it without giving anything away.

Why Alana Kearns-Green ?
Alana Kearns-Green and I went to school together at NYU and have a very similar aesthetic. We wanted to write something we could act in together and since we had been working together for so long it only made sense.

Why the choice of vintage items for the costumes?
We wanted the feel to be very antique and vintage and summery. The house where the film takes place is full of antiques and we wanted to costumes to match that feeling.

Do you wear vintage yourself?
I love wearing vintage. It's within my budget, good for the environment, and I know 3,000 other girls won't have the same outfit on as me.

Where do you prefer to shop ?
I grew up in Georgia so when I go home to visit I usually come back with bags of clothes. You can find really gorgeous items for so cheap! Recently in Georgia I found a beautiful red Italian leather vintage pencil skirt and also a hand made trench coat from London that both fit me perfectly. There are also some vintage stores on Long Island that I love. A month or so ago I found two dresses at one of them that look straight out of Betty Draper's closet. They fit me like a glove.

  2. Magazine cover - Students will choose a magazine, then study
    past cover photos for inspiration. The local Palomar College
    in San Marcos offers some of the best adult workshops I have ever experienced, at a fairly low cost.
    Just just take as numerous photos as you can, tweaking as you go and
    you will quickly have a gorgeous however daily life masterpiece.
