living in: green card

by amym

Any movie whose central love story revolves around the love of an apartment is good in my book. The 1990 romantic comedy starring Andie MacDowell and Gérard Depardieu doesn’t disappoint in the home department: MacDowell marries Depardieu to qualify for her dream home in New York, complete with a greenhouse. It’s the kind of apartment movies love — gorgeous and ridiculously beyond reality for a young lady who makes a living as an inner-city gardener. Suspend your disbelief and prepare to fall in love, too. —

The second set of stills and product round-up continue after the jump . . .

A marriage of convenience sounds pretty romantic when it involves a French accent and piles of houseplants. MacDowell’s dream home has an antique greenhouse, a rooftop terrace and a dramatic entry staircase, and when decked out with her botanical prints and feminine furniture, I can’t imagine a place I’d rather live. Even the movie’s hilariously familiar Enya soundtrack can’t break the spell, and that is saying something.
