Was more than thrilling!
Unlike many who spent their Xmas surrounding an endangered pine tree, tricked out in lights and ornaments, I chose to spend mine watching Lisbeth Sander (played by actress Rooney Mara) on the big screen. Lisbeth, for those who don’t know, is the femme fatale of all Femme Fatales in the flick THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO (TGWTDT) directed by the talented David Fincher.
TGWTDT, the first novel of Steig Larsson’s Millennium trilogy, and Fincher’s first Hollywood cinematic attempt surprisingly (since Hollywood usually seems to fuck shit up) engages, captivates, excites and delivers! (hope Fincher directs the next two in the series) This film has it all folks – drama, comedy, sex, kink, murder, wit, intrigue and romance!
True, hottie Daniel Craig’s performance doesn’t disappoint, especially with his gorgeous face beautifully faceted with age, but Rooney Mara, who plays Lisbeth Sander, steals the show, hands down! Not only does she command empathy when at her ‘worst’, lucky for us, she does everything without apology, just how all women should be!
Then came that one scene, much to my heart’s content – Lisbeth’s rings designed by designer Jules Kim of Bijules get their close-up – shiny and huge on the big screen. On the left hand, is Bijules’s ‘Skinny Bar Ring‘ from her BJ by Jules Kim collection shown here:
while sporting Bijules’s ‘Bony Knuckle Ring‘ from her Scream and Spirit Collection (below) on her right hand.
So I urge you to deck yourself out in one if not both of these rings if you truly want to channel Lisbeth Sander as these can not be replicated. Unless of course, you find many cheaper versions lacking that something special called authenticity.
Sure you can hit up mainstream and attempt to channel her with H&M’s Dragon With The Girl Tattoo collection, designed by the film’s costume designer, but why opt for disposable fashion, when you can truly have a keepsake like these rings by Bijules.
So run, don’t walk and see this flick!
