John Wick (2014)

One of the opening scenes is set in the protagonist’s bathroom. He’s standing alone in front of the mirror, but he’s looking at the other side of the counter, where many beauty products are. A close-up on this side shows us that it used to be Helen’s, his dead wife.

Atomic Blonde (2017)

diorskinnude_bornunicornThere’s a Dior Diorskin liquid foundation in Lorraine Broughton’s make-up drawer. This is clearly a historically inaccurate choice – the story is set in the Berlin in the late 1980s – but there’s an explanation: Charlize Theron, who plays the role of Lorraine, has been the testimonial for Dior J’Adore since 2004. Besides the foundation, other details (clothes and accessories, for example) are contemporary.
