Documentarian Lisa Immordino Vreeland returns with a loving yet clear-eyed look at Cecil Beaton, the twentieth-century polymath: famed photographer, author of 38 books, Oscar and Tony-winning designer of Gigi and My Fair Lady, painter, dandy, and lover of both men and the divine Greta Garbo.
His incredible work ethic and talent for self-promotion (combined with an equally strong penchant for play) brought him from upper-middle-class suburbia to hobnobbing with royals, working with Diaghilev, and hanging out with David Hockney and Mick Jagger.
Even his enemies – George Cukor, Katherine Hepburn, Evelyn Waugh – were classy. Vreeland weaves together vintage footage of Beaton and new interviews with, among others, David Bailey, Penelope Tree, and Isaac Mizrahi.
