Lisa Immordino Vreeland
1h 38m

Photographer, costume designer, documenter of a city in wartime, art director, cartoonist, columnist, writer of acerbic diary entries: Cecil Beaton did all this and more. A veritable 20th century Renaissance man, the Briton made his name as a trendsetter and artist who kept his finger on the pulse of English and American society for over a half-century. Welles to Jagger, Garbo to the Queen Mother: seemingly every person who was someone in English-speaking culture passed in front of Beatons camera at one point or another, all captured in an immediately striking style that reads as both stark and ornate.

Lisa Immordino Vreelands documentary follows Beatons career in more-or-less chronological order, mixing the personal and societal dimensions in a life that demanded such treatment. Using a deft blend of archival footage, photographs, conversations with Beaton, interviews with friends and sundry figures, and lengthy extracts from Beatons diaries (read by Rupert Everett), Love, Cecil emerges as a faithful document of an indefatigable, innovative personality: one who, above all, recognized the power of images.
