It was right around this time three years ago that I was heading east to shoot GRACE in Weston, Massachusetts. Directed by Devin Adair, the film stars Tate Donovan, Katie Cassidy, Matthew Lillard, Missi Pyle, and Debby Ryan.
Dawn (played by Katie) is a grungy tomboy who pulls clothes off the floor to get dressed for the day. She rocks work shirts, beater tanks, and combat boots. Feminine touches came in the form of delicate jewelry pieces that remain fixtures on her body. The first time we ever see her in something feminine is that red dress she wears when she makes Charlie dinner, signifying a major sartorial arc.
Charlie (played by Tate) comes from money, is unkempt, and stuck in the past. We honored the New England vibe with vintage cable knit, Irish, and tennis sweaters that we distressed to look well-worn and threadbare.
