"Mad Men Meets the Artist".
Now that's my kind of film.
Perfectly filmed in a 1950s retro chic style by French director Regis Roinsard, Populaire captures the essence of the old Hollywood movie whilst maintaining its position as a piece of French culture. The story is relatively simple, boy meets girl (who is obsessed with a typewriter) he then discovers that she can type at such a speed that he may be able to present her as a competitor at the World Typing Championships.
Obviously the most important part for any vintage fashionista is, do they get the costumes right?

Or for the gorgeous floral print, as seen in the earlier scenes of the trailer, try this one:
Or this one inspired by the typing scene:
