Event Details

"Hugely entertaining. A precious cinematic bouquet."

- Film Journal International

    British-born Cecil Beaton was perhaps best known for his production design on Oscar-winning films likeGigi and My Fair Lady, but his talents extended far beyond cinema. From Beaton's World War II photography work for Vogue to his relationship with the Royal Family and his alleged affair with Greta Garbo, director Lisa Immordino Vreeland (Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to TravelPeggy Guggenheim: Art Addict) uses previously unseen footage and stills-with excerpts from Beaton's diary, narrated by Rupert Everett-to illuminate her creative subject's ambition and inimitable sense of reinvention. 

    LOVE, CECIL will open at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Elinor Bunin Monroe Theatre on June 29, 2018 with a national release to follow.
