With the awards season now drawing to a close, and the Oscars just a few weeks away, the last few months have been a reminder that not only is cinema very much alive and well, the diversity of stories that move and thrill us has never been better. But while we all have our individual reasons why we love movies, what about the people who make them? That’s the simple premise behind the appropriately titled “What I Love About Movies” from the folks at Little White Lies, and today we have some hardcover copies of the book to put in your hands.
Featuring Richard Linklater, Wes Anderson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Helen Mirren, Ryan Gosling, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Kristen Stewart, Ralph Fiennes, Steve McQueen, Carey Mulligan, Francis Ford Coppola, and more, along with beautiful illustrations for each subject (see below), the book features quotes from those talents and many more, sharing their personal connections with the medium that has made their careers. It’s the perfect coffee table book for cinephiles. So, how do you get your hands on one?
