The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985)
I really adore this Woody Allen movie. It's fun and bittersweet and I love the story, writing and music. It uses one of my favorite concepts–where someone is pulled out of their element. It's a stranger in a strange world type of flick that employs Movie Magic, and celluloid fantasy meets harsh reality with hilarious results. The entire cast is fantastic, and i think its a stand-out role for Jeff Daniels, who had to convincingly play the naive, guileless film character 'Tom Baxter' and his counterpart–ambitious actor, Gill Shepard.
I was on a kick making my 'wishful thinking' movie posters this past week. These are posters and manipulations that feature Jon-Erik in roles I would love to see him in. Check out my version of 'The Purple Rose of Cairo' poster below.
Here are two more recent Movie posters I made featuring Jon —Tron Legacy was an awesome film!
