Color Palette

Rees wanted the color palette of the film to reflect Smith’s inward and outward growth. In the first act of the film, which reflects the singer’s vaudeville days, the colors are mostly monochromatic. A lot of wooden textures also populate this time period. The second act, during which Smith gets a recording contract, the colors are more bold – fuchsias; turquoise. Pastels and natural colors dominate the third act when Smith’s life finally evens out.
