Love, Cecil

Winner of last year’s CINECITY Brighton Film Festival Audience Award, Love, Cecil, delights in the details of renowned British-born photographer and tastemaker Cecil Beaton.

Documenting everything from Beaton’s World War II photography for Vogue, to his relationship with the Royal Family, and his iconic production design for Oscar-winning films Gigi and My Fair Lady, director Lisa Immordino Vreeland (Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict) also offers an intimate glimpse into the home-life of one of the country’s most notorious gossips, also covering his supposed affair with Greta Garbo and dipping into his diaries, voiced by Rupert Everett.

“Backed by a musical score … that’s as lushly seductive as its images, “Love, Cecil” is a fine biographical portrait, but a better way to describe it might be as a slideshow from heaven” Owen Gleiberman, Variety
