A Closer Look At Rose McGowan’s Dawn

No Comments / leave one

You may now check out Rose McGowan’s haunting short film, Dawn (2014), via Refinery29. They also did a very nice write-up on the film, calling Dawn a “masterfully subversive directorial début”.

If the character Dawn is marked by constraint and indecision, McGowan’s role in shaping her film was just the opposite. Taking the lead on the set design process, McGowan transformed her heroine’s world into a bubblegum-pink embodiment of the ’60s obsession with order. Moving through this bright landscape of neat ranch houses, pleated skirts, and sleek, new furniture, the film clearly reflects the post-war craving for a return to convention.
