So excited I could burst...Lady of Shalott film


Thanks to Stephanie Pina for directing my attention to this incredibly exciting new project!

WAG Screen, a group devoted to film and historic reenactment both, are producing a film based on Tennyson's Lady of Shalott. And most definitively also based on the famous Waterhouse artwork.

I am incredibly impressed by the amount of accuracy to the painting they have created! Look for yourself:







The original Waterhouse image, for anyone who has forgotten (but who could??)
