Great piece from the LA Times on Meryl Streep's character's garden in "It's Complicated." Director Nancy Meyers is known for her real-estate-porn-for-middle-aged-women approach to set design (remember Diane Keaton's house in "Something's Gotta Give"?) Well, she took the same approach to this character's Santa Barbara garden, an abundant potager that magically blends warm and cool-season crops.
From the film's production designer:
The vegetables were grown in a greenhouse for two months before the garden scene was shot, and any plant that looked a little scrubby was not used.
There was also a little enhancement. "I probably shouldn't tell you this," Hutman said, guiltily, "but those tomatoes were wired to the vine."
and Remodelista has more photos and some "Steal This Look" tips.
Has anybody seen the movie? Is it worth seeing for the garden?
