I have always fondly remembered a certain pair of pants from Green Card…. It’s odd, really, because there’s nothing particularly remarkable about them! But somehow this particular pair of green cargo pants seemed to sum up the nature-loving, green-thumbed, delightfully unglamorous ways of the main character:
There they are! Paired with an oversized pinstripe shirt and lace-up work boots, and taking part in the construction of a community garden – what could be better, really? (I actually owned a very similar pair of pants myself at one time, possibly partly as a result of seeing this film, and practically wore them to pieces.)
Whilst re-visiting this memorable (to me at least) outfit, I realized that the overall style of Brontë’s clothing is quite charming: almost Victoria Magazine-ish, but crossed with guerrilla gardener, and usually with at least a hint of green somewhere….
But the real scene-stealer of the movie is actually the heritage apartment, with its rooftop garden and its lush & luscious conservatory:
I’m sure I’m not the only person who has continued longingly to covet a conservatory like this ever since first seeing the film!
(And in fact, I discovered that I’m certainly not the only one! Here are some wonderful tributes to the film & all its greenery….)
