"The Stars (Are Out Tonight).” | Tilda Swinton meets David Bowie | Girl meets Boy

David Bowie’s "The Stars (Are Out Tonight).” is where Tilda Swinton meets David Bowie in a classic Girl meets Boy scenario. The film, directed by Floria Sigismondi, portrays Tilda Swinton and David Bowie as an otherwordly androgynous power couple whose domestic life is torn apart by their younger doplegangers, played by models Andrej Pejic, Saskia De Brauw, and Iselin Steiro. Bowie describes it as a portrayal of "a twenty first century moment in its convergence of age, gender and the normal/celebrity divide"Interesting given his otherworldly talent and androgynous aesthetic it is as brilliant and strange as it is beautiful.
