Set Design From Gus Van Sant's Restless

Sneak Peek: Set Design From Gus Van Sant's Restless!

Annabel's bedroom has a magical, earthy feel to it — is that a potting stand in the background? I love the utilitarian coat rack, as well.

I'm excited for Gus Van Sant's upcoming film Restless, out Sept. 16, which follows a terminally ill teenage girl who falls for a boy who likes to attend funerals — hello Harold & Maude! — and their encounters with his ghost friend, a WWII Japanese kamikaze pilot. As to be expected, it's no design-centric film, but as with many Van Sant projects, the sets are still romantic and well-conceived. If, like me, you can't wait another month and a half, I have a sneak peek of the set design for you today!
