Plein Soleil (1960)

Before summer draws to a close, what else to do but to lay supine in this languid heat? We open our doors to you of The Drawing—Room: to withdraw to after supper for leisured entertainment. For your fair enjoyment, you may consider our compilation of music and cinema. Below are stills from René Clément's French New Wave film Plein Soleil (1960), the movie that inspiredThe Talented Mr Ripley (1999), and our subsequent playlist.
