Suzie’s (Christina Ricci) gold dress from Sally Potter’s 2000 drama, The Man Who Cried.
A Russian Jewish girl (Christina Ricci) is separated from her father in 1927 and escapes to England, where she's rechristened Suzie. She grows up to be a singer in a Parisian theater populated by a Russian dancer (Cate Blanchett), an Italian tenor (John Turturro) and a Gypsy horseman (Johnny Depp). When the Nazis invade France, Suzie's life is suddenly in danger, and she attempts to flee to the United States.
This costume was made for the production to be worn by Suzie in the scene where she and Lola perform for a crowd outside. The dress is floor length and predominantly gold-coloured metallic velvet, with a sequined area on the chest and shoulder. Inside are two labels, one from ‘Paddy Dickie UK’ and one from ‘Angels & Bermans’ which reads ‘Miss Ricci – Suzy [sic]- The Man Who Cried’ and ‘Christina Ricci’ respectively.
There is some wear from production use and age. There is a split on one of the seams down the side and there are some loose threads, but otherwise the dress is in a good condition.
Materials: Man-Made Woven Fibres, Ferrous Metals.
