Hannah and Her Sisters (Woody Allen, 1986)

I'm currently in the midst of a Woody Allen marathon. This one appears in a lot of 'favorite lists', and it didn't disappoint.

A lot of unfortunate 80s womenswear in this film, but most of the menswear wouldn't look out of place today.

End movie spoilers ahead.

Michael Caine: Always a winner. 
Shirt, tie, polo, elbow patches.
The fur is a little too pimpin' for me, but her toggle coat could be worn today.
The anxiety of the man in the booth.

Would love to know the story behind this shirt.
"I want so badly to kiss her." 

Grief and herringbone.

Over accessorized.
Mia Farrow doing the menswear thing. Michael Caine looking guilty
 in a comfortable sweater.
This time with less accessories.
Anxious in a V-neck.
Neurotic in a crew neck.
Those poor sleeves.
Varsity jacket.
Dark plaid, bold tie. 
Comfy cable knit sweater.
A happy ending. 

As part of its American Masters series, PBS is airing a documentary on Woody Allen, directed by Paul B. Weide. It airs November 20th and 21st.
