We love Helen Mirrens portrayal of Great Aunt Elinor in the new children's fantasy film Inkheart. The film is set in no particular time, but Dames Helens look is slighly 1920's. Apparantley, she had a lot of input into her characters look and was inspired by Edith Sitwell.
Based on children's author Cornelia Funkes's bestselling novel, this is a witty, exciting, fun filled fantasy and one to choose if you offer to take any small family members to the cinema over the festive period.
