The Look: 1960′s Britain; Nora Walker, the mother of a child who becomes deaf, dumb and blind after witnessing a shocking event, spends much of her time consumed with distress and guilt over her son. Based on The Who‘s rock opera, the costumes are psychadelic and outlandish, with everything from leopard print and silver mesh to chocolate sauce and baked beans (just see the movie, trust me). With a tragic story, Nora’s outfits serve as both distraction from and proof of all the lunacy.
